SPRING IS HERE! Come get away & enjoy the cool mountain air of NC! Elevation 3896 feet. The lower private portion is complete with everything you need to have a secluded getaway. Go trout fishing, exploring & walking all on the property. Includes your own peaceful waterfall! Everything you need is at your fingertips. Priced low to rent this Spring!

SPACE:

Come enjoy a full twenty acres of cool mountain living. Complete with two streams, waterfall, trout fishing and trails. All on the property. If you just want to just cozy up inside and play games with your family, we have those too. From pool and darts to corn hole and board games. The private apartment has its own bathroom and shower. As well as a efficiency kitchen with coffee maker, dishes, and basic kitchen utensils. Cooking is done on a four burner gas range/oven. You will also have a microwave and medium fridge for longer stays. Everything you need to get away!

GUEST ACCESS:

Guests will have access to the entire living space shown and the full twenty acres that have many natural mountain features for you to enjoy!

GUEST INTERACTION:

Most days we are just upstairs to help with anything you and yours may need. But privacy is also deeply respected if so desired.

NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW:

Our home is very convenient to many outdoor activities outside the property. Activities such as zip lines, trout fishing, rafting, snow tubing, and hiking within minutes. We are also only 5 miles from all the high-end restaurants and shops in Highlands, NC!

GETTING AROUND:

Though the driveway is steep, any vehicle can easily navigate the paved road up. Only in snowy/icy weather will our guests need to use the back gravel driveway in the rear of the property or park on the pavement, in the lower meadow and walk up to cozy in.

HOUSE RULES:

PETS: $20 fee. Pets are encouraged and allowed. As pet owners know, they are a lot of work sometimes. A $20 additional cleaning fee will be attached to all pet visits. No exceptions. A $100 fee will be charged if a pet is visiting and is not declared. All pets MUST be very well socialized with other people/animals and cleaned up after, inside and out. Socialization is very important because there are many other well-loved, domestic and farm animals on far portions of the property. Pets ARE NOT allowed on the furniture whatsoever. All this being said, we really do enjoy seeing new pet friends around! We hope to see yours!

Additional Notes About Pets: We have our own onsite security! Have no fear, our entire homestead is watched over by Samson! A wonderfully huge and goofy black Newfoundland dog that is very friendly with all things nice. He is always so excited to meet new people and new pet friends. Don't be alarmed when he comes to say hi! He would never even hurt a fly. :-)

SMOKING: No smoking inside. $100 Fee will charged if this rule is broken.

FUN TIME: Though you have free rein of the entire property, we live most days in the top portion of the home. We sometimes leave early for our day jobs however. This doesn't mean you and yours can't enjoy yourselves at night though. Just as long as your activities are kept at respectable levels late night. Come have fun! It's what the mountains are for!!

Owner's Response: As you can see from the simplicity of this guest’s review when compared to the every other glowing review we have, they were the problem. Not our space or it’s cleanliness. We’ve been renting for several years and have never had any issues or complaints from any of our other guests. Please consider our other reviews and the source of this one. Thank you.

Lots to see and do in area, and then great cabin to relax!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a unique trip to Scaly Mountain, evacuating a hurricane. This cabin and the family that owns it was a perfect fit for us. They have lots of animals on their farm to entertain; great views, trails, waterfalls. They have veggies growing and apples to pick. The location is great, Close to Highlands, NC and Franklin, NC; in the area, you can find trout fishing, trails galore, waterfalls all over, gem mining, and enough restaurants and stores for all your needs. The cabin itself is clean, with small cooking space, but all in all great for a place to relax, rest, and get ready for the day.

Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to be our home base to explore the various hikes and downtown Highlands. We brought our dog, so we needed a pet friendly location. The two miniature goats on the property was an added bonus as they are very friendly.

Just what I needed!

  • 4 of 5

My best friend and I had a wonderful time catching up at this cozy cabin. My only complaint is that we only had 1 night. I will certainly come back. We enjoyed walking around the property and visiting with the goats & piggy. The weather was perfect allowing us to see an incredible display of stars. Thank you for accommodating such a last minute request.
