Adirondack Cottage: Designer Artists Studio, Walk To Town, Pet Friendly

Bedrooms 2
Space 800 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

2/1, 25 Foot Vaulted Ceilings, Completely Renovated, Designer Decor, Pets

Formerly an artist's studio, Adirondack Cottage is flooded with natural light and treetop privacy. Made cozy by its original appointments such as cedar shake siding and antique windows, it has been fully renovated in 2016. It's oozing with charm. Did we mention a 1/2 mile walk to Main St?

The yard is lined with maples, hemlocks, and old growth rhododendrons. Walk to Harris Lake for ice skating in the winter or catch and release in the summer. Walk to sunset rock or a flat, 1/2 mile walk to town.

I will send out suggestions for my favorite things to do in the area-

this allows my guests feel like an owner and see more of Highlands than just Main Street. I also have a list of babysitters and petsitters that I can send out upon booking.

Guests have access to the 2 bedroom unit and off street parking for 2 cars comfortably. The cottage has 2 cozy outdoor decks for lounging, 2 bedrooms with all memory foam bedding, a fully stocked chef's kitchen, and a newly renovated bathroom with walk in slate shower.

Accessible by car- 4 wheel drive is not needed to get to the cottage but is always good to have in Highlands, especially in the winter.

About Kristy Jones-Favalli

A huge fan of all things food, wine, and hospitality, I am a restaurateur turned real estate investor. This is my fourth property in Highlands. Sharing my home with guests allows me to tap into all of the wonderful things I love about being in restaurants, most notably being able to shape people's experiences into something that is truly unforgettable. In my down time I love to entertain, travel, and cook with my husband Christian, daughter Valentina, and my two rescue labs, Leo and Olive.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to take a mini honeymoon to Highlands. To say we loved where we stayed is an understatement. It was absolutely beautiful with all the amenities that we needed. The house is laid out well and truly feels like home away from home. It's the perfect place to stay for a trip to the mountains. It's close to town but you still get that woodsy feel. The shower alone is worth staying there. The natural sunlight is also another perk. You can tell the owners take great pride in their house based off how well maintained it is. We will definitely return to Highlands and hope this amazing house is open when we do return.

We had the best time at this cottage! You really cannot beat this location. Walking distance to downtown or a quick 2 minute drive! The cottage was cute and functional. And being able to bring our dog was a fun bonus!

Nothing here we did not truly LOVE!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of our very favorite rentals ever! Truly feels like a treehouse! Love the natural light, high ceilings and the privacy, though just a half mile to Main Street! Beautifully decorated, very comfortable beds and the shower!... feels like you are in a private grotto! There is nothing we did not completely love here! We will be staying here every time! ❤️
