About the Property
Beautiful Highlands Mountain Cabin in quiet neighborhood very close to town
We have completely renovated Pine Crest Cabin over the last several years and everything has been updated including adding hardwood floors, wood ceilings and a central HVAC system. Our cabin is a very comfortable and cozy 2 bedroom/2 bath home furnished with beautiful American and European Antiques furnishings from our family antique store Jacqueline Adams Antiques located in Atlanta. You will feel very relaxed in the morning sitting on the front porch drinking coffee or watching the sunset over the wooded ridge from the expansive back deck with brand new out door furniture. The cabin has a nice mountain ridge view with a grill out on the large back deck. There is very easy access into the cabin with only one step up into the cabin and everything is on one level.
The large kitchen is fully equipped and is a dream to work in with all of its space and the butcher block as the center island. The two private bedrooms each have wonderful new bedding and bath linens, pillows and quilts with nice size closets. The master bedroom has an attached bathroom with shower/tub and a double vanity. The guest bedroom has a full bathroom directly across the hall. The family room has a wonderful stone fireplace and another wall filled with books for your reading pleasure. There is also a stackable washer/dryer available for your laundry needs. Pine Crest Cabin is a very comfortable homey rental for either a quick long weekend or an extended stay.
Highlands is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life or from the heat of the summer. Each season there are so many different things to do. There are a wide variety of wonderful restaurants ranging from 5 star rated fine dining to casual fun places to grab a sandwich. The downtown area has wonderful shopping which include high end designer clothing shops, art galleries, candy and ice cream shops and several antique stores. It is a pleasure just walking thru town with our two Yorkshire Terrier dogs. We also like to walk the dogs down to Mirror Lake to see the ducks or to the Botanical Gardens to go for a walk near the lake in the woods/gardens. Highlands also hosts several cultural, automotive, culinary, and art related weekends during the summer. Also, if you love wine all the restaurants have great wine lists with experienced sommelier’s. During the summer there are always a nice selection of theater events to attend at several different local area playhouses (very unusual for a town of this size!). Make time to attend one of the events at the Bascom Art Center. Nearby you will find the lovely town of Cashiers and nearby Lake Toxaway which are both wonderful to visit.
Highlands is a resort like destination with the renowned Old Edwards Inn. We love to go to the Old Edwards Inn Wine Garden or Madison's restaurant and when we have time visit their world renowned Spa for a massage or facial. There are so many great restaurants to list here but we just want to mention a couple of our favorites (On the Verandah overlooking Lake Sequoyah, Wolfgangs on Main for their seafood and Paoletti's for Italian and we can tell you about several others...too many to list) If you have never been to Highlands, I think you should come visit our town up in the mountains! We have been visiting Highlands since 1989 and have many great suggestions to make your vacation special.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Vicki and Chuck Beam I manage this property myself and own several other properties in Hilton Head Island SC. We live in Alpharetta, GA 20 miles north of Atlanta and my family owns an antique store located in Buckhead.
Why the Owner Chose Mirror Lake (Highlands, NC, USA):
We loved the quiet location of the Mirror Lake neighborhood and love the fact that Highlands NC is only a 2 1/2 hour drive from our house in Alpharetta. We completely renovated the house from top to bottom both inside and outside. It was a labor of love and took several years to complete. The house is all on one level and is very comfortable and cozy being a great size for a getaway. After my grandmother purchased a house up in Highlands we started regularly coming up to visit her and fell in love with the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Very close to town in the quiet neighborhood of Mirror Lake. Dog friendly cabin with central air conditioning and very large back deck. Beautiful sunsets over mountain ridge viewed from back deck. My dogs love the great walking neighborhood with the cool air and gentle hills. Fireplace with plenty of firewood. House is cozy for fall and winter getaway.
