2 Bedroom / 2.5 Bathroom Bungalow just a 3 minute drive to Main Street!
Backwoods Bungalow is tucked underneath a lush canopy topped by century old white pines. It has been transformed into a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom mountain retreat. This bungalow has two master suites, each with a king size bed and en suite and a full size sleeping loft.
Backwoods Bungalow, nestled in at over 4100 feet in elevation, is a short 3 minute drive to downtown Highlands and in the midst of hiking trails, multiple golf courses, scenic drives, waterfalls, fine dining, shopping and spectacular views of Nantahala National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains.
Our family has been coming to Highlands, NC for years and in 2008 we decided to purchase a property for friends and family to enjoy. We have since opened that cabin, Camp Carlee (VRBO #197884), to those interested in experiencing the beautiful scenery and breathing in the fresh mountain air. We have enjoyed giving people the opportunity to experience Highlands, NC so much that we decided to purchase a second property and completely renovate it for others to use.
The extensive renovations include a completely rebuilt stone fireplace for those chilly mountain nights, new screened porch, flat screen TVs, new appliances, fresh no VOC paint for the interior, new paint on the exterior, quartz kitchen countertops, solid oak flooring throughout, completely renovated bedrooms, bathrooms and a new roof.
This professionally designed retreat has an open great room with reclaimed tin on the vaulted ceilings, wood beams and stone fireplace. The great room features custom lighting, a flat screen television with DVD player and many natural details to make you feel at home. Additionally, it offers dining for six and a spacious living room, which opens onto the screened porch. The well-appointed kitchen and stainless steel gas grill provide the perfect combination for a night of entertaining or a nice meal with the family. For those who prefer some quiet time or like to make the most of a rainy day, you can relax with a good book in the sleeping loft, play board games or browse the wireless internet from any location you choose. This cabin boasts two master suites, each with its own king-sized bed, smart TV and private bathroom. Each room features egyptian cotton sheets, warm quilts and down comforters.
Backwoods Bungalow is ready for your family and friends just in time for fall and leaf season! Please contact David and Lori Bee at (828) 526-9999 if you would like further information or message us on Facebook.
The best part is that Camp Carlee and Backwoods Bungalow are across the street from each other and provide the perfect accommodations for larger groups that like to have their own space as well. Please be sure to check out the cabin and the bungalow on Facebook for more photos and updates!
Thank you and have a great day!

About David Bee
We often find our minds wandering to the mountains of western North Carolina. Although we are not able to spend as much time as we would like in Highlands, that leaves more time available for guests to stay at our cabin. Any time of year is perfect to enjoy the wide range of scenic wonders and events this area has to offer and we hope you'll make your memories with us. Have a great day!

Beautiful cottage/wonderful vacation
The cottage is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities for a home away from home. Loved having a warm fire on a cold February night. Close proximity to downtown and lots of hiking locations. Several great restaurants to choose from. David was so easy to work with and very accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!
Stayed 3 nights week before Christmas,and was somewhat disappointed . Although a cute small cabin, it lacked some things I think the place needs if it wants to be considered a higher end accommodation.
.It has memory foam beds which I find hard and uncomfortable . Also the pillows were heavy and hard as a rock in the master BR. There were no other choses of pillows to be had.
I've rented other houses that were appointed much better with pillows, coffee, soaps etc.
However, its OK and convenient to town. RR
Convenient, clean & cozy!
We had a great time over Thanksgiving week. Kitchen was nicely equipped,
beds were comfy, great fireplace and Glen falls right down the road! We definitely
recommend the "backwoods bungalow"! - Betty Orzalli
Perfect Cottage for two couples ... Outstanding renovation!!!
My wife and I were there for two weeks, and had friends stay with us part of the time. As pretty as the pictures. Absolutely flawless (we would hire their interior decorator). We enjoyed it all ... fire at the fire pit ... barbeque on the back deck ... sat in the screened porch and read during a rain storm ... hiked to the falls. Perfect! ... and only a couple miles from Highland (the quaintest little town in the whole world).
Nice Vacation Get Away
It was a nice place. Very convenient to everything.
Backwoods Bungalow is absolutely beautiful. It has every amenity we needed. The decor is beautiful. The kitchen is well-stocked. It is well situated and close to hiking, waterfalls, downtown Highlands for dinner and shopping. We are looking forward to our next vacation and will definitely stay here again !
