About the property

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

The open floor plan is flooded with light and showcases shiplap walls, vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, 1940's Wolf range, pet friendly fully fenced yard, and rocking chair front porch.

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.

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

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.

Why Kristy Jones-Favalli chose Highlands

I instantly fell in love with this cabin when I walked in. The shiplap walls and smell of firewood made me feel like I was walking into a Ralph Lauren ad or a Garden & Gun photoshoot.

What makes this cabin unique

3 main benefits:

- 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.

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

A Perfect Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at High Hemlock. The home is comfortable and nicely decorated. It was the perfect size for our family of 4 and 2 dogs. We loved the large fenced yard. The home is close to town which makes everything so easy. We can't wait to go back. It is nice to know there is a smaller guest cottage that can be rented right behind the house for additional guests if needed.

Great cabin and location!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is so reminiscent of Joana Gaines! We loved it! The wood burning fireplace was a great to roast some marshmallows. The cast iron tub and slate showers were super cool too. I couldn't believe the amount of magnolia trees in the yard too. It was so. Ice having a fenced property for our lab too! Oakley loved it! The playground just down the street was great for our son and dog to play in. Main st is just literally around the corner and so convient. The fresh grocery store is a must! The French toast breakfast is to die for! The dry waterfall is a must see. It's only 15 mins from the cabin and super cool. And if you keep going 5 more minutes you'll find Jackson hole trading post where you can do some gem hunting. We hit a bit of bad weather with Irma but Kristi was super quick and responsive and her dad even came by the house to check in on us after the big storm and we lost power. So sweet and friendly! We'll definitely be back! But probably in the spring and not during hurricane season 😉?

Adorable cabin with beautiful decor

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have visited High Hemlock. We have already booked our next trip! Just perfect for us. Loved being able to walk downtown. We also enjoyed using the cozy fireplace during the chilly nights. Kristy was so kind- -we were arriving after dark and she had the lights already on for us. Thank you!

Loved High Hemlock! Was clean, spacious and comfortable. The owner, Kristy, was great to work with. It was so nice to be able to walk to town to eat and shop. Will definitely rent this again in the future. Highly recommend.
