Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: The Ross Family from Franklin, TN has been enjoying Highlands for the past 5 years and look for excuses to sneak away to the mountains. Eric is an Interior Designer and Ruthann runs his business. This home is an extension of their passions for hospitality, entertaining, decorating, and enjoying the beauty of nature. They are excited to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Sequoyah (Highlands, NC, USA):
The ultimate luxury is time away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Highlands is the quintessential story book town with a Main Street you would see in the movies. The shopping and restaurants are first class and the scenery is breathtaking around every corner. Our desire was to create an intimate home that we could share with family and friends as well as share the charms of Highlands.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What we love about our mountain cottage is the way it is tucked into the wooded landscape. Once you enter the home, a huge surprise is the sparkling view of Lake Sequoyah among the towering pine trees. Sleeping on the new screened in porch in the rain is bliss.
