No longer just a summer retreat for wealthy retirees and their families, Highlands, North Carolina, has become a year-round destination for the young and upwardly mobile. There was always a predictability to Highlands. Just before Memorial Day Weekend, families and retirees from places like Atlanta, Charlotte, and Winter Park, Florida, arrived, swelling the population of this four-stoplight town in the southern Appalachian Mountains from 1,200 to 30,000. They’d settle into vacation homes, shop for pottery at Stone Lantern, dine on veal medallions at Wolfgang’s, and walk to SweeTreats for ice cream. Most of their friends back home had never heard of Highlands. It lacked the tourist attractions of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and the size of Asheville. Highlands was a cocoon where generation after generation of families would spend a leisurely, seventy-two-degree summer, then pack up and leave after Labor Day.

Today, the only thing predictable in Highlands is the temperature, which is at least ten blessed degrees cooler than the rest of the South on any given day. While summer remains high season, the town now welcomes visitors throughout the year. Even in December, the town is full on weekends, and shops that once shuttered during the winter compete in holiday window-display contests. The town’s shift from secret summer enclave to popular year-round destination has contributed to a business boom, as new restaurants, shops, and arts attractions find their places alongside city stalwarts, who’ve extended their seasons and offerings.

                                                      We have stayed in this home for 11 years now and every trip is amazing. This is our second time staying in the home since the Walsh’s have owned it. The house is well-maintained, clean & beautifully decorated. Jim is so helpful with any concerns that you have during your stay. We are already planning our next trip up.

                                                      We loved this place

                                                      James P.

                                                      The house was amazing. We have zero complaints. The house was super clean and the owner very accommodating. We plan on traveling back to Highlands in the future and will be making our plans based on availability of this place as we have no desire to stay anywhere else.

                                                      Such a beautiful house in a perfect location!

                                                      Great place to stay!! Beds are comfortable, beautiful home & breakfast is the sweetest touch!

                                                      Great rental cabin

                                                      Sean T.

                                                      Wonderful experience. Look forward to hopefully staying again soon.

                                                      Wonderful home with all the comforts of home! Fantastic screened in porch overlooking private yard!

                                                      DiBiase n.

                                                      Loved the fire pit! The Xmas tree was such a wonderful holiday surprise! Will definitely go back.

                                                      Would love to come back!

                                                      JoAnn D.

                                                      This home and setting are wonderful. The house is meticulously clean, with comfy beds, plenty of furniture to spread out inside and out, and every possible amenity. Big, soft towels, warm duvets, extra throws on the couches, a ready to prep breakfast, coffee, wifi, a TV in every room, a gas grill, plentiful fire wood and so much more! The kitchen has all the pots and utensils you need to cook up a feast or just make coffee. It was especially nice to be here during the holidays with a beautiful lit tree, outside lights and lit door wreath. The chocolate covered pretzels on the tree were a "sweet" gift. Thank you. Whether on the back porch or outdoors, it is a peaceful paradise. The location is ideal to Highlands or Cashiers and a day trip to Asheville. Thank you for sharing your home. We had a lovely, memorable Christmas weekend and hope to be back one day!
