About Dominique Bennett

We are Jordan & Dominique Bennett and we have worked in the performing arts our entire lives. You can say we have been quite lucky and have both traveled around the world several times over. We are currently living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For the past several years, we have been coming to Highlands for our vacation and have fallen in love with the area. In 2014, we purchased Stirling Cottage and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Dominique Bennett purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Dominique Bennett chose Smoky Mountains

We looked at many many properties in this area and decided that Strirling was perfect for us. It is new, yet rustic; tranquil, yet close to town. We have never felt more relaxed.

What makes this cottage unique

There are a number of vacation rentals in Highlands. Obviously, we are quite biased, but we feel Stirling will hit almost every item on your vacation checklist.

Beautiful house close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Two old friends and I rented this cottage for a girls' weekend. It was the perfect place for us. Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms meant everyone had plenty of space. The beds were super comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were totally updated and great. We spent most of our time on the decks enjoying the beautiful weather. Loved it!

Perfect cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Sterling cottage. Location was very close to town but I think it's a little far to walk in the winter. Has everything you need but if you are cooking a big meal you might want to bring some pots. It was very clean and spacious, perfect for our family of four but could work for larger families also. Great big smart TVs for snowed in days. Lovely neighborhood with plenty of rentals, our friends rented a stones through away from us, it was great! The Highlands is a great town and we will be back!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this house a couple of times now and love it. The pictures and description are accurate. The interior of the home has been nicely renovated and is very comfortable. You can walk to town pretty easily and driving to town just takes about 2 minutes, door to door. From the deck, you even have a partial view of Sunset Rock.

I was looking for the perfect house to stay in for a brief getaway in Highlands. This house was all I could have hoped for. It is very close to town (an easy walk around the lake), it is clean, nicely decorated, has a large comfortable master suite, an open deck upstairs and a huge covered deck downstairs. The owners are very accessible when you contact them and are eager to help.

If you are coming to Highlands and want to be in a lovely home that is secluded and peaceful yet close to everything, I would highly recommend this listing.
