Property description

Stirling Cottage is .8 of a mile from Main St. Highlands. It is a perfect walk to town, passing Harris Lake along the way. The house has a new stone walkway and deck at the entranceway.

There is an open living room with a fireplace and renovated kitchen with all new appliances. The living room sports a huge new flat screen on the wall.

Just through the living room is a dining area that leads out to an open wood deck with rocking chairs and an additional dining table.

The upstairs also has a huge master bedroom with a king size bed and a convertible love seat. The en suite has just been redone.

Across the hall is guest bedroom with a queen size bed. There is an additional full bath just outside the door. A brand new washer/dryer can be found in a utility cabinet in the hallway.

Downstairs is a man cave/kids playroom with another large flat screen tv and dvd player. The couch can convert to a queen size bed. There is also another full bath and another bedroom with a twin bed.

Outside the downstairs is a new deck that runs the length of the entire house. Half of it is covered so you can enjoy some outdoor time even if it is raining. There are chaise lounges and a hammock. Just off the deck is an additional driveway for the house.

Stirling also has high speed wireless wifi; AC upstairs and heating downstairs.

This property will offer you a vacation you will not soon forget, providing treasured memories for you and your family.

Highlands is one of the most charming places to visit that I know of and I have traveled around the world several times over. There is great scenery, hiking, restaurants and very very friendly people.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: 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.

Why Highlands, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
