Whether you prefer sitting on the deck overlooking the expansive view of the mountains, or heading downtown to Main Street to enjoy the shops and restaurants, you will find that Minnie Blessings is the perfect location for your mountain vacation. The house is conveniently located minutes away from downtown shopping, restaurants, golf courses, and hiking trails. Most importantly, it is comfortably furnished to welcome you home when the long day is over. Every bedroom with its own private bath. There are dens on each level with their own wood burning fireplaces. The kitchen was recently remodeled and house received several new upgrades. “Minnie Blessings” has been owned by the same family for three generations. Named for its original owner, Minnie Lee, the home has welcomed visitors from near and far. Her generous spirit and warm hospitality always made everyone feel like part of the family. We invite you to experience the many blessings of Minnie Lee.
I grew up in Albany, GA as a young girl but fell in love with Highlands, NC through traveling to this home when it was owned by my grandmother, Minnie Lee. As a young girl we traveled to Highlands several times a year to vacation. Since those days, the house has been passed through my mother and now on to me and my brothers and sisters. The house has been in our family for nearly 50 years. I now reside in Birmingham, AL and teach high school drama.
Michael and Lee Eady purchased this house in 1940
This house is very special to me since it was originally purchased by my grandmother, Minnie Lee. After my grandmother passed, the house was left to my mother, Elizabeth Loosier. My mother passed away a few years ago and now the house is owned by me and my siblings. It is a very dear place to us and we look forward to sharing the beauty of this home with visitors for years to come.
The house is a short 5 minute drive to downtown Highlands. It is conveniently located to waterfalls, shopping, and many other area attractions.
What an awesome view from the back porch! Fantastic house with all of the amenities. Very spacious for our family and incredible convenient to downtown Highlands. Highly recommend a stay at Minnie Blessings!
What a wonderful home. Had everything we needed for a family trip to the mountains with spectacular views and comfortable surroundings. We will definitely be back.
We just spent a long weekend at Minnie Blessings and could not have been any happier. The view from the deck is perfect for both morning and evening. Probably the best part of this house was its proximity to downtown Highlands. Our group traveled from four different states and before our stay was over we were already trying to figure out when we could come back. Great house! Great location! Great time!
We (7 family members) celebrated Christmas for 3 days at Minnie Blessings . The home was accurately described and as shown in the pictures. It suited our needs well with each bedroom having its own bathroom and having the master bedroom on the main level for the grandparents. Everything was perfect for a family celebration from the great room, to the functional kitchen and large dining room. It felt very homey and comfortable. Sadly the weather did not cooperate and we had torrential rains and heavy fog so we only got to see the beautiful view for the few hours of departure day. Additionally because of this we weren't able to take advantage of the lovely sun room with hanging bed - :( Highlands is a beautiful area and this home has the ideal location. It is close to town and yet feels private when you are at the house. The owners were easy to communicate with. We would recommend this property and would certainly consider returning in the future. We were very happy with our decision to stay at Minnie Blessings.
My family of six adults and two infants stayed at Minnie Blessings while attending a wedding. The accommodations were exactly what we needed, lots of space, bathrooms for every bedroom which were large and comfortable beds, two large dens and very comfortable seating, well stocked kitchen, and two beautiful back porches that extended the length of the house. Tables and chairs for dining outside, rocking chairs and a swing for quality time with my grand babies, and the most relaxing swing bed on the enclosed section of the porch with windows to allow fresh air in. This home has beautiful views from the porch so you really want to stay outside. The owners stock the house so no need to bring extra products from home and they are wonderful to communicate with. We were located only a few minutes from downtown, waterfalls, golfing, reception locations. Downtown is just beautifully landscaped and several stores for shopping. This home is perfect for a large family where we were able to enjoy the company of all of us together. If being with your family is important to you then Minnie Blessing is the place where memories are made to stay with you forever.
Five friends and I stayed last week at Minnie Blessing and we had the best time ever. We shopped in Highlands, ate great cuisine at the Madison House, picnicked in one of the local parks and saw all the beautiful water falls. Of course we had to tour the antique, produce and unique roadside venues and ended our trip with lunch at the Cupboard.
The accommodations were wonderful. All the beds were comfortable, the view was marvelous from both decks, both living areas and the dining room. The kitchen was well equipped as were the bathrooms and linens. I truly felt like they had thought of everything and it was more like being at grandmas that at a rental home. There is a wonderful atmosphere to the home and we all felt comfortable and loved. We especially enjoyed the fireside chats and the pleasant decor. I think the sweet spirit was Ms Minnie who made sure everything was just perfect.....and it was. Thank you so much, for all the special touches and for the memories. We enjoyed it so much we are already booking for next year.
