Barefoot Retreat, Streamside Home, Pet-Friendly & only 8 minutes from Cashiers
The Barefoot Retreat is the perfect escape from the hot, hectic city to a cool, serene setting. We furnished the huge great room with oversized leather sofas and chairs, giving it a comfortable mountain feel. Complete with a wood burning fireplace, this beautiful room opens up to an expansive wrap-around deck with seating for 12. Enjoy relaxing on the deck while listening to the tranquil sounds of the stream below. The Barefoot Cottage sits on 1 acre of flat land - rare to find in the mountains! This allows for fun lawn sports - croquet, bocce ball, badminton or tossing a football. Complete your day enjoying the beautiful sunset on the deck.
This large but cozy mountain home has a Master bedroom on the main level with a king size bed and master bath. The main level also has a large, Hi-Def TV with a full Direct TV package and wi-fi internet. The upper level has a queen bed and full bath, with French doors and private deck overlooking the stream in the back. The lower level has a second master with a king size bed and two smaller bedrooms: one full, along with a private entry way in the basement. This is especially nice for a second family or older children. Surrounded by nature’s beauty the home sleeps 10.
Enjoy the many surrounding hiking trails, golf courses or boating/kayaking on Lake Glenville.
Oh, and we're dog friendly so just let us know Lassie is coming!
The spacious and fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
Grill out on the new, oversized grill or dine at one of the local restaurants. The choice is yours with the town of Cashiers only 8 minutes from home and the neighboring town of Highlands only 20 minutes west.

Great location and setting
Great cabin for kids. There is plenty of room to play outside. Its close enough to town to go get food or shop.
Everyone loved the fire pit and creek in the back. Family room and kitchen table are large enough for 8 adults.
Thank you, Patrick, for sharing your experience at our Bearfoot Retreat! We love having kids and pets as our guests and we're happy to hear that you were able to utlilize all the amenities. We are going to be adding some additional outdoor games to our current ones and hope that you will be able to enjoy them on your next visit!
Lovely creek side cabin
Lovely Rustic cabin with all the essentials. We stayed for 5 nights over the Christmas holiday and the owners were kind enough to put up a tree and other decorations throughout the cabin! You can tell they take very good care of their place and it was extremely clean. There were lots of outdoor games we could play and a creekside fire pit.
There were 8 of us total, 6 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs and we all slept comfortably. There is a bedroom with bath upstairs, the master on the main with bath, and three adjoining bedrooms on the bottom level that share a bath. Each bedroom has its own heat/ac unit which made sleeping comfortable for everyone. There is also a fenced in yard and doggie bags are provided!
There are so many amazing waterfall hikes in this area , rainbow falls being our favorite. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to be in the Cashiers/Highlands area!
Stephanie, Thank you for recommending our Bearfoot Retreat...we are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay! We're especially happy to see that you were able to take advantage of all the fun things to do at our home and in the Cashiers area. They're all part of the reasons we love to stay there, too!
Quiet, peaceful, beautiful!
Bearfoot Retreat is a peaceful getaway where all you will hear is the sounds of the stream and wildlife. The fresh mountain air, along with the beautiful mountain setting, was perfect for coziness and relaxation. The stars at night are amazing! The house has everything you need and is nicely furnished/decorated.
Thank you, Nancy, for taking the time to write such a nice review of our Bearfoot Retreat. You obviously experienced the same peaceful tranquility that led us to this home and the Cashiers area! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you visit again.
Barefoot Retreat was truly exceptional! The owners were amazing and helpful from start to finish. We truly enjoyed viewing all of the beautiful nature that surrounded us. We loved building a fire and making Smores! It was chilly so we enjoyed a fire in the wood burning stove too. The large dining table gave plenty of opportunity for our entire family to enjoy some home cooked meals. The beds were comfy and the home well appointed. We loved listening to the stream from the back porch. We enjoyed watching movies that were there. The home was centrally located between the towns of Highlands and Cashiers. We enjoyed our hikes to nearby waterfalls. One of our favorite meals was at Sky Pie pizza and pasta. We will definitely be back. Thank you Andy for helping to make our stay amazing by giving us pointers on sites to see and restaurants to try.
Sharon, you have perfectly described the reason that Lori and I have a mountain home in Cashiers...it is truly heaven on earth! Thank you, so much, for your wonderful comments and for sharing with others all the great things to do in and around our home. It makes me want to go there right now!
Everything was as stated in descriptions. Owners VERY responsive to any questions or requests.
We truly enjoyed our stay. The property and house were enjoyed by the kids and adults. The great room was perfect for our family gathering. One thing that we would welcome on another visit would be the twin beds downstairs be a little more comfortable. Great kitchen and dining area.
Thank you, Scott, for your kind comments. And we agree with you that the Great Room is, well...great! We also appreciate your suggestion to improve the two twin beds downstairs. It's been on our "to do" list and we will provide new ones for our guests starting in 2018. Hope you will be able to enjoy them on your next visit!
