An adorable 2/1 Guest House can be rented if more space needed and if available

Rolling Hills Farm is centrally located between Cashiers and Highlands and Lake Glenville, NC! For a truly unique and one of a kind experience this is it-nothing else on the rental market quite like it! This very large elegantly decorated log cabin built with scarce reclaimed material is privately situated on a hilltop with over 30+ acres overlooking a gentle rolling pasture with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains which include Shortoff, Yellow, and Whiteside Mountain to name a few. Though large enough to host big family/friend gatherings, corporate retreats, weddings and rehersal dinners, it at the same time can be cozy enough for a couple that just wants to get away and enjoy a relaxing time together. Enjoy these spectacular views from a huge wrap around porch with its own fireplace to sit around and roast s'mores , sit under the covered area to soak in the views and feel the cool breezes, or choose another porch with outstanding views as well with a gazebo to rock your cares away.

Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this home is 12-15 minutes away from Cashiers and Lake Glenville, and 18-20 minutes to Highlands, NC. So yes---you are within just a few minutes of everything to enjoy here. That is, if you want to leave the property! A 10% discount is offered to returning guests! This discount cannot be used with other promotional offers. Discounts given on week or longer stays as well.

This beautifully decorated home comes complete with all linens and accessories needed. Plenty of sleeping quarters for 15 comfortably and more if the extra mattresses that are stored under beds or the blow up mattresses are used. There is a garage apartment that is self contained and private. It is great for the couple or kids who want their own space, complete with King bed, full bathroom, kitchenette,W/D, and balcony with views. There is a blow up single mattress that is available for guests as well to use here.

Upon entry of the Main house, you will find the Great Room and dining area. In the beautiful Great Room there is a magnificent wood burning fireplace, flat screen TV, and also unbelievable outdoor views from the two story Great Room! An ample supply of firewood is provided at no additional cost.

There is an exquisite old Irish pub fully stocked with glass ware, refrigerator, and utensils. The pictures don't do it justice! When you step into the kitchen you may feel like you've stepped back in time. Furnished with modern appliances, but is still housing the old wood burning stove and open fireplace. Off the kitchen you find the den, again with fireplace, flat screen TV and wide pane glass to see the view! From here, you go upstairs to another guest bedroom with a canopy Queen bed. This bedroom comes complete with private bathroom, walk in closet, extra twin bed and spectacular views! There is a double mattress under the queen bed and a single mattresses under the twin that can be used by guests here as well.

Back downstairs off the den is the third guest bedroom. This is one of two master bedrooms with a King sized bed and complete private bathroom with lots of closet space. There is a single mattress and box springs under this bed that can be used by guests here as well. Large pane windows makes waking up to the view in this room-- just incredible and sets the mood for the whole day!

Off the Great Room up a separate set of stairs you will find the second huge Master loft bedroom with a King four poster bed and private bath with walk in closet. There is a double mattress under the bed to be used by guests if needed. It is very spacious complete with shelves of books to enjoy in an awesome chaise lounge with tremendous views.

Included are board games, horseshoes, badminton/volleyball, ping pong table, foosball table, and accessories to be enjoyed right outside the doors! In the corner there are custom queen bunk beds, that the kids will love but large enough for adults! There is a single mattress under these beds along with a double bow up mattress in the storage room that can be used by guests. Coming soon will be twin bunk beds in a separate room on the lower level!

***There is an adorable and newly renovated 2/1 guest house (804 sq. ft.) that if not booked can be used in conjunction with the main home for an additional cost. Please inquire about its availability and cost if interested.

Though the guest house is within walking distance to the main house by walking through the pasture from the main house or driving to it down the driveway, it is very private and can not be seen from the main house at all. in fact, it has its own address and is about 4/10 of a mile down the driveway. It is located right above a small creek which is wonderful to listen to while relaxing on the front porch! It has one bedroom with a king bed and a second bedroom with a queen bed. There is a single blow up mattress that guests are welcome to use. The guest house has its own living room. with t.v., a kitchen, and recently renovated bathroom. This is the original farm house to the property and is very charming. Pictures soon to come!***

**Please note the guest house is not part of this rental unless rented separately. Also, the barn and back pasture is not part of the rental, not to be used by guests, and not calculated in the acres for use.**

Rolling Hills Farm is one of the best places to stay in the Highlands/Cashier/Glenville area and offers a truly unique experience compared to other vacation rentals in the area.

Plenty of room for everyone in the family, all with their own private quarters; lots of room for the kids to play and roam, minutes from all the activities you want! Golfing-(within 5-10 minutes drive to three beautiful membership golf courses-Mountaintop, Highlands Cove, and Trillium), boating, hiking, waterfalls, shopping, and dining of all kinds! With it being so close to all these clubs it makes it a wonderful place to stay for weddings that are near by or host an event here for an extra charge.

                                                            We had 4 couples / 8 adults on a long weekend trip and _ everyone_ was extremely happy with this outstanding property. The views are unequalled, especially on a clear night, when you can sit out on the deck near the fire and gaze at the Milky Way!

                                                            The house and the property couldn’t have been more perfect for our getaway! It comfortably accommodated 4 families with kids, and the owner went out of his way to check in on us and make sure we had everything we needed. The house and the surrounding grounds are absolutely beautiful. We hope to be back soon!

                                                            What a special place!!

                                                            We held a large family gathering at Rolling Hills Farm over the Christmas holiday. We had 10 adults and occupied the main house for 6 nights and the newly renovated guest house for 3 nights.

                                                            The gathering took a lot of advance planning for the group since we were celebrating Christmas on the farm. Gig was unbelievably responsive from the first contact I made with him in the reservation process months earlier. He always responded within hours to any question or request we made of him. He gave us some great pointers on restaurants, outdoor activities and other points of interest that made our trip that much more enjoyable. He and Lori also took the time to decorate the home and grounds for Christmas prior to our arrival, which was a really great touch that made us feel that more welcome and that we truly appreciated.

                                                            The home is a treasure. It has so much character and is a wonderful place to host a large gathering. It is very well stocked with everything you could possibly need to be comfortable and it was so easy to cook and entertain. While we were there, a huge cold snap arrived and Gig took special care to make sure we were all comfortable. He and Lori are terrific hosts. We have stayed at many luxury residences over years of travel as a family and this was among the best experiences we have ever had. A truly memorable experience.

                                                            Thanks Gig and Lori. We will be back!

                                                            Or entire family gathered at Rolling Hills Farm and had a wonderful time.

                                                            Everything we needed was included and the Owner was helpful and accessible.

                                                            We will surely be returning.

                                                            Wonderful stay!

                                                            We loved every moment of our stay at this home. The house is rustic and gives a country feel but at the same time is elegant and classy. The view is amazing. The kitchen is stocked with plenty for even a large family gathering. We could not have asked for better!

                                                            Perfect in every way for our traveling group.

                                                            This large rustic cabin style home had all of the comforts and amenities of home. It was perfect for our group of close friends who have been traveling together for over ten years. We love to make it like home where we can relax, visit, cook in and enjoy the quietness. The 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths provided us plenty of space for privacy and resting. The views, scenery and wildlife were a bonus. We would definitely consider a return trip in the future.
