About the property

2/2.5, flooded with light, completely renovated, designer decor, wood burning fp

Come once and you will return year after blissful year. Fully renovated in 2012, this designer cabin is flooded with light and features the perfect mix of rustic and chic along with the perfect local for a .5 mile stroll to Main St., Old Edwards, Shops and Restaurants.

The Space

Trust me, the pictures don't do it justice. The open living and dining areas are joint, spacious, and flooded with light. This cabin also features a wood burning fireplace, dining table for 6-8, rocking chair from porch, fully fenced yard, soaking tub, two stand up showers, all memory foam mattresses with plush bedding and comfortable furniture that will make you want to stay forever! This cozy cabin is perfect for entertaining with an original 6 burner Wolf range from the 1940's.

Guest Access

The 2 bedroom cabin, fenced yard, and private parking in the lower gravel driveway for 2 cars.

The Neighborhood

It's majestic. The yard is private from the street, as it's 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.

Getting around

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 hopeful. 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 mold peoples experiences into something that is truly unforgettable. In my down time I love to entertain, travel, and cook with my husband Christian, newborn daughter Valentina, and my two rescue labs, Leo and Olive.

Why Kristy Jones-Favalli chose Smoky Mountains

3 main reasons:

- location- it's wonderful to walk to have a coffee or a glass of wine.

- decor- No old floral sheets and dank smells here-cabin is the perfect combination of rustic and chic. Promise!

- yard- it's the epitome of natural beauty and a botanist's dream. Did we mention if's fully fenced?

Perfectly appointed cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in High Hemlock was perfect in every way. The decor and comfort in the furnishings are impeccable. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch as well as the comfy leather chairs in the main salon. Added benefit of being close to main street within walking distance while providing seclusion. Will definitely be back.

Absolutely beautiful and Extremely Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful and extremely comfortable home. Impeccable design and decor. The location cannot be beat, especially with our young daughter. 2 minute walk to the school playground, 10 minute walk to a lake with ducks, and 15 minute walk to Main Street. The home has amazing privacy considering the location to the road and other rental property. The house would be ideal to rent in conjunction with their other rental home on the property if you had a larger group. Highly recommend and we will definitely return!

We so enjoyed our 5 day stay at High Hemlock. The weather was perfect, the cottage impeccable and very cozy and comfortable. This is the second of Kristy's properties that we have had the pleasure of staying. Everything was cozy, comfortable and well equipped. The weather was perfect. The area was perfect for long walks.It was a pleasure meeting the owner's folks who gave us a preview of the cottage next door which is so adorable. We are looking forward to returning soon. The only problem is we cannot decide which of these cottages is our favorite. Thanks Kristy for an enjoyable 5 days.

Amazing, HGTV worthy property

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, cozy, exquisitely decorated, well-appointed, comfortable cabin. The property is even more magnificent than what is shown in the photos. It was exactly what we were looking for in a "mountain get away" cabin. We enjoyed being within walking distance of the main street area but felt we were secluded enough for privacy. Thankfully, the weather was just cool enough during our stay to justify using the fireplace each night. What a treat! The property is wonderfully maintained and clean. Very nice to have a washer and dryer available. Kristy, the owner, is quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to friends! That is how we found the cabin-- friends of ours told us about it. We will be back to stay in this perfect little place as soon as possible.

Peaceful mountain get-away.

  • 5 of 5

You're not "renting" a property at High Hemlock - it feels more like you are staying at a friend's home. Comfortable. Inviting. Impeccably decorated. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
