About Tom Ellicott

We are crazy about Highlands and have owned a cabin there since 1998. The 4 owners are Helen and Kevin and Kevin and Tom.

Tom Ellicott purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Tom Ellicott chose Wildwood Mountain

We love the privacy of this cabin. It's the last home in the community and it's the only one with a creek plus a great view. We bought it new and added many custom finishes. It's just a special cabin, you'll see.

What makes this cabin unique

There is nothing like Highlands! The restaurant scene is dynamic, the hiking and waterfalls and cool weather make it very special. Shoot us an email for our restaurant guide. All our guests receive one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just arrived reluctantly back home in Miami after a lovely two weeks + in Highlands at the Creekside Cabin. What a wonderful place, thank you!

I have to say that we have rented many places over the years and this is one we would definitely rent again. Not only was the location wonderful but it was incredibly well appointed and maintained house. It was truly ideal.

Thank you for providing such a great home for our mountain get away.

Great location and perfect porch!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nicely furnished in a quiet location. It was centrally located between Cashiers and Highlands. The porch area is delightful. The porch was always between 60-70 degrees and nicely shaded. We spent nearly all of the stay on the porch or in the kitchen. Will certainly return!

A lovely setting in the woods...

  • 5 of 5

The most important factor to us -- the house was clean. The furnishings were certainly adequate though not outstanding. The beds were extremely comfortable and we and our guests slept well. One issue -- the bed spreads need to be cleaned. They are attractive, but we wonder how long it's been since they were laundered. They need freshening.

The screened porch was fantastic and we enjoyed many hours these. It is like sitting in a treehouse! There is a hot tub on the outside deck and it is buried in the trees. The cleaning company completely drained and filled the tub for our use. Frankly, had they not done that, I would probably not used it. It was an outstanding feature of the house.

The kitchen is big and nicely stocked with everything you need. There are two coffee appliances -- a Keurig and a drip pot. The kitchen island is nicely placed and good for food preparation and serving. There is a barbecue outside that is connected to the house gas system and it works adequately. It was nice not to mess with a propane tank. The dining area table in the house is large enough to seat and serve six. There is a large outside dining table on the screened porch that is the best place for meals.

The parking is a bit of a problem, though manageable. The house is located at the end of the road (nice with no traffic) but necessitates backing out. You can use a couple of the other driveways in houses close by for turning around. This was not a problem for us, but if backing up is not your thing, you may want to avoid this property.

As mentioned, the setting of the house was beautiful. One issue is the closeness of the house visible from the screened porch. During our stay it was mostly unoccupied. However, the first evening we arrived there was a noisy tenant and you could hear every word they uttered. They also serenaded us with their choice of music. However, other subsequent guests were not that loud and for 95% of the time it was quiet and restful. The stream by the house is small and really only runs noticeably after a rain. We had a lot of rain during our stay so it was nice to hear the running water.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property for a mountain retreat.

Really enjoyed our stay!! Great kitchen that is well equipped with everything you need for cooking. Everyone loved the hot tub after a long hike. Loved walking around the neighborhood in the mornings around the beautiful lake. We can’t wait to go back!! One of the best VRBO homes I’ve ever stayed in!!

Third time returning to Creekside Cabin, and will be back again!

  • 5 of 5

Creekside Cabin is by far our family's favorite rental in Highlands/Cashiers. Great layout, tons of space with 2 separate master suites, great location, great everything. The community is great for short walks with no busy streets in the immediate area. It's the perfect respite and we will certainly be returning as soon as we are able.
