About Monique Wallace
This home was originally owned by Mark's parents for almost 20 years, and was sold when they decided to retire "in town". Mark and Monique Wallace purchased the home in March, 2015. The Wallace's are a Clemson Tiger family. Go TIGERS! Mark and Monique met in Indiana and lived in Indiana and Minnesota. Now living in Virginia Beach, they decided to put down roots by buying the family cabin so they can make lots of new memories together with their children and grandchildren.
Monique Wallace purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Monique Wallace chose Mountain Rest
There are a lot of fabulous memories in the home, and the vibe here is warm, welcoming and nourishing. Our home is also a tremendous value, as it is an entire lake front home with private dock with all the amenities, a new 2nd bathroom (remodeled in January 2017) and every room updated with well appointed furnishings, for under $200 a night! We also include many kitchen and bath supplies (a value of at least $100!). Many celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and we have several bride's prepare for their weddings at Chattooga Belle Farms in our home. We also have hosted several international travelers. The lake house is a peaceful and comfortable place for your retreat. It is a place to create your own memories. We recognize this and would be honored to be your special home away from home. Monique (me) is also a licensed Realtor in Virginia, and very dialed in to guest support and maintaining a safe, updated and well-appointed home.
What makes this Cabin unique
We not only love this home because it is rich in Wallace family memories, (there may be a few carved out names on a small desk in the corner...) but because it is just the "right amount of far enough away". Every amenity you can think of surrounds the area, but at night the stars are bright and chirps and clicks and fire crackles and the faint sound of moving water and wind all around you is all you can hear. One of Mark's favorite thing to do is to go out to the middle of the lake at night and look at the brilliance of the Milky Way and we frequently dance on the dock! Be sure to enjoy this lasting memory for yourself!

The great escape
My family and I stayed here for 4 nights needing to get away and all we could say was wow! We were originally only going to stay 3 nights but had such a great time we stayed an additional night. The house is secluded in a private/gated community in the mountains. The beds were comfortable and the house was incredible. The views were amazing. We were trying to unplug from this hectic world and reconnect as a family and that's exactly what we got. We still had the luxury of internet and Direct TV, but being away from everyone and connecting with nature was incredible. We snuggled up by the fireplace at night and during the daytime we would take the kayaks out on the lake. One night we roasted marshmallows by the firepit outside. We had cool weathers for half of our stay but even that did not deter us from having a great time. we're hoping to come back up during warmer weather. Highly recommend this cabin :)
Great week in Mountain Rest
We had a great week at the Wallace cabin. Very well appointed and cozy. The location is beautiful. Thank you!
Thank you Sharmon! Please come back anytime! -Monique
On Golden Pond
We drove from Texas to hike waterfalls in the area.The house is located very near to many.The lake is beautiful with fall foliage colors.We thought we was in a scene from the movie "ON Golden Pond".Each night we burned a fire at the firepit.Really loved both bathrooms one with a deep clawed tub and another with a newly remodeled shower.The home is located in a very quiet respected gated neighborhood. My favorite part was the beautiful screened in porch.Loved Up Country South Carolina
Thank you so much for your review! It IS like On Golden Pond! Come back and see us anytime! Happy Holidays!
Beautifully appointed and located cabin. Enjoyed our stay and spent some quality time exploring the surrounding area.
Only minor downside was a lack of water pressure. (And we didn’t catch any fish!)
Take advantage of this gem!
Hi Sandy! Thank you so much for your review! Sorry about the water pressure- well water is a bit fickle, especially if there are several water users at one time! Sorry you did not catch any fish! Darn! Come back anytime! Monique
Very nice house on lake
Pictures were how the house looks. We enjoyed the screened- in porch in the morning. Very quiet, saw very few neighbors during our trip. Would rent again if we visit Highlands, NC again
Matt, Thank you so much for your review!!! So glad you had a great visit and celebration!!! Come back anytime! Monique
Perfect Get Away!
We had a more than perfect Fall get away at Wallace house! The house was even more beautiful than the pictures. Extremely cozy & very clean & also well furnished & generously stocked. The quite gated community provided a safe environment for us to feel at peace. The lake front view was amazing from very angle. An easy walking path that led to a large dock for great fishing & swimming. The yard was very well taken care of & the house itself is in great condition. Kayak & canoes, a hammock, rocking chairs.... The accommodations were everything we hoped they would be & much more! Monique is very easy to work with & is very responsive. We would highly recommend anyone looking for the perfect tranquil getaway to rent the Wallace house!! Thank You Monique for providing the perfect get away for our family & dog!
Thank you Carman for the thoughtful review! We agree! I am so glad you had such a wonderful time!-Monique
