About The Owner

I am a young professional who lives in Atlanta. I bought this property to have a weekend get a way place that was a short drive from Atlanta. I live in the Vinings area of Atlanta and can be at my Highlands place in two hours and 15 minutes door to door.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Highlands

I bought my house in Highlands as an investment. The town of Highlands continues to grow and attract a sophisticated yet casual group of successful visitors and home owners. The Highlands community is very cordial and offers everything from live theater to antique shopping and other great retail stores. Highlands Main Street has been called the Worth Avenue of the mountains. Main Street offers everything from screw drivers to fine dining to estate jewelry and home accessories.

What makes this house unique

High Cotton Cottage offers many great benefits to enjoy during your stay. The cottage is located on a hill which over looks Buck Creek. You can hear the soothing sounds of the creek from my decks and many rooms of the house. The cottage is very cozy and has a stone fireplace with a gas starter. The hot tub on the rear of the house looks off into the woods for total relaxation and enjoyment. The cottage is located in a private neighborhood owned by a group of five families who are all friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place to stay! This cottage is a great value for a stay in Highlands. My wife loved the quaint setting and she felt safe when I was away. We have rented this cottage for a month for the past two summers. We will continue to rent here and have asked the owner to let us know if he ever wants to sell this place.

This past weekend was the second time this year we have stayed here and will not be the last! It is cozy, tucked away from everything, loaded with extras and super clean!

Garrard went above and beyond my expectations for the weekend. He was very accomodating and provided lots of details for the surrounding area. I can’t wait to come back!
