About Patty Hightower

My husband Jimmy and I have lived in Pensacola since 1976. I serve on the Escambia County, Florida School Board, and my husband is a professor at Pensacola State College.

We enjoy Pensacola, but wanted a cool, high summer home.

Patty Hightower purchased this house in 2016

Why Patty Hightower chose Sky Valley

My husband Jimmy and I looked a several areas before selecting Sky Valley for our home away from home. My husband wanted a cool location to escape the heat of Pensacola, Florida where we live, and Sky Valley filled the bill. Sky Valley is a beautiful area, somewhat isolated, yet within 15 minutes of Dillard and Clayton,Ga. and Franklin, NC, and within 20 minutes of Highlands, NC

What makes this house unique

Privacy, cool summers, delightful deck, hummingbirds and fireflies, chapel in the valley below, mountains, wi-fi, do what you want when you want or enjoy doing nothing at all. Well mannered pets welcome.

Affordable, Spacious, and Dog Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here for New Years weekend and had a blast. The cabin was very easy to find, has a GREAT view of the mountains, and is close enough to town that you can run to Ingles if you forgot something. The house is a bit on the older side, but has been maintained very well. The home owners went above and beyond for us! We were iced in the morning we were supposed to leave. The driveway is very steep and was a solid sheet of ice. We ended up having to stay until 3 that day, just so the ice could melt. Not only were the owners okay with that, they actually emailed us the night before with updates on the road conditions! Would definitely stay here again!

The deck and view were amazing. There are some updates that need to be made to the house.

If this property were updated it would probably stay booked. I hope to go back in the fall because of the awesome view.

The house is very private, we had a baby and it was great because we could all play downstairs while baby slept without bothering. We will definitely come back
