3 bedroom, 2 bath well appointed mountain cabin on a private 1 acre lot
Welcome to Horseshoe Cabin. The name was coined when an old, rusted horseshoe was found, half buried, in the backyard under the porch. That horseshoe is now framed and hanging in the kitchen with the points facing upward, like a “U”.
Dating back to the 16th century, this tradition ensures that the good luck is captured inside the horseshoe and does not escape, thus protecting the home from any form of evil and keeping the luck secure. On the other hand, there are arguments that the horseshoe should be hung in the opposite direction, with the points facing downward, which will ensure the good luck pours out into the home. Regardless of the differing reasons or beliefs about how best to hang a horseshoe, there is little doubt that the horseshoe remains an everlasting symbol of good luck.
Located just minutes from the many restaurants, shops & art galleries on Main Street in downtown Highlands, Horseshoe Cabin is a mile from Glen Falls, and in close proximity to many other scenic hiking trails & waterfalls. This designer cabin offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is almost like new. The open floor plan features a large living room/dining room combination, a kitchen/bar area, and a small outdoor grilling porch directly off of the kitchen. The living room boasts high ceilings, wood beams, a ventless gas log stone fireplace with remote control, and upscale furnishings. The well appointed kitchen and Weber gas grill provide everything needed for a night of entertaining or a quiet meal at home.
There is an extensive library to provide endless hours of reading after the day’s activities, in addition to flat screen TV's with Roku in all 3 bedrooms, as well as in the living room. The third bedroom also offers an office space with a printer/fax/copier. There is a high speed cable modem and WiFi throughout the cabin, as well as free long distance calling for all continental calls within the U.S on the cabin's landline.
The screened in back porch provides a peaceful respite after a day of outdoor excursions, activities or cultural events.
As a small token and remembrance of your visit to Highlands and your stay at Horseshoe Cabin, we have a good luck horseshoe to send home with you. We hope you return soon. In the meantime, may good luck always be with you.

Beautiful cabin......Beautiful weekend.
Great place to spend your vacation or celebration! This place is awesome and decorated so tastefully. We enjoyed our stay at Horseshoe Cabin immensely. Very comfortable beds, and kitchen furnished with all the necessities. Loved sitting on the porches and just relaxing. Close to Highland, Cashiers, Lake Toxaway, waterfalls and many restaurants and shopping. We couldn't have been happier anywhere else!
Great place to get away!
We had a great stay and loved the house in Highlands. It’s 2 miles from the heart of Highlands. Beautifully decorated and a great fireplace to relax. We enjoyed the back porch in the evenings with a glass of wine. We had a teenage daughter who enjoyed the house and nearby hiking as well.
A Hidden Gem!
My husband and I had a delightful time at Horseshoe Cabin. Not only was it well appointed, but the lovely furnishings and eclectic decor were so beautiful to look at. The owner, Mary Ann went out of her way to make our time in her home enjoyable. We can't wait to return, only next time we plan to stay longer!
