About Ken Cash

We were both born in Tampa, FL and have lived here all of our lives. We went to the mountains in NC and fell in love with the waterfalls, change of climate, and the overall nice way of life. This is simply a wonderful place to vacation and relax.

Ken Cash purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Ken Cash chose Highlands

Located at a high altitude and close to waterfalls and hiking trails. Completely redesigned with a spacious gourmet kitchen and private back deck area to enjoy the mountain laurels and sound of Buck Creek rushing down the side.

What makes this cottage unique

Located close to Highlands with a quaint downtown area. Also, once inside it is very private. Proximity to many streams, waterfalls, and hiking trails.

The High Cotton cottage was the perfect cabin for a Christmas getaway for our family of five.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cabin and it’s close proximity to downtown Highlands, NC. It was a cozy cabin with a wood burning fireplace, a nice sized kitchen, comfy bedrooms and a porch upstairs. It was also close to the town of Cashiers and Saffire Valley Ski Resort.

Very comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cozy home. Location was close to wedding events in town. Other homes are very close but none of the other homes were occupied during our stay so very private. Home has wonderful kitchen for those who enjoy cooking. Beds were very comfortable. Owner quickly responsive to all questions prior to renting. Will rent again if in area.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ken and Erin! Your cottage is beautiful, spacious, and equipped with everything you would need and more. It was also very clean. We enjoyed staying in it. Too bad it was only for two nights while attending a wedding. We would definitely recommend your place to anybody. It is wonderful.

Lovely home in a quiet spot

The house was tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. It was comfortable and had everything we needed for a great stay. I especially loved the kitchen.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I planned a quick trip down to the Highlands area and Ken was very helpful in getting us into his rental house.

We enjoyed the house very much and it was very comfortable, well equipped, and up to date with all the features you would expect.

My wife loved the kitchen layout and we cooked almost every meal there.

The location is great being so close the Highlands and Cashiers. The second level deck was very enjoyable for our fantastic weather weekend and we spent mornings having coffee there listening to the peace and quiet as well as the stream and wood land in the back of the house.

We would love to come back again for a longer visit and will plan to do so again in the future.

Thank you Ken for the enjoyable stay and the last minute booking.
