About the property

Relax at a cool 3,400 feet and watch the sun set over the Appalachians in the fresh air with the sliding glass doors open to bring the natural setting in. After a day of hiking, exploring the quirky North Georgia towns and Highlands, N.C., sipping wine at a local vineyard, and enjoying a farm to table experience in the hottest region for farm to table wares, return to a mountain house in the sky. Enjoy a panoramic view from the kitchen, dining area, main living space, downstairs living space, and downstairs bedroom, as well as appreciating a semi-wraparound porch with unadulterated views of nothing but nature.

At Sky High, you have space to relax and unwind. The main level is composed of a fully stocked kitchen, living space, and two bedrooms with a Jack-n-Jill bath. Downstairs is another living space and an additional bedroom and bath.

Upon waking up with the surrounding peaks, you have the opportunity to choose how to spend your day. Sky High is centrally located to Dillard, Clayton, Highlands, and Franklin, and is an hour and a half drive to Asheville. Activities in the area include: zip-lining, golfing, white water rafting, hiking, gem mining, shopping, horseback riding, wine tasting, fishing, and more.

Come to the mountains and feel the stress evaporate as you wind up the mountain to your own piece of the sky.

Nice and cool

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoy Sky Valley, it’s the 3rd time we’ve stayed for the week of the fourth. So much to do in the area. We hiked Whiteside Mountain. It’s one of most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. The cabin is very nice with lots of room. Waterfalls everywhere. Always come home rested. Also you can’t ask for better people to deal with that Perry and Tracy.

Terrific view! God’s handiwork on full display!

  • 5 of 5

Great & amazing view! Great lodge! Loved the downstairs setup! Wish our stay was longer.

Couple of things, one there was no toaster (we used oven to toast our breads) and the wash towels & hand towels didn’t have the freshest of odors (like maybe the towels weren’t dried right away after going through washing machine?) Hoping we can make it back soon!

The “house” was fabulous! It was so clean and well maintained. The views from the porch were breathtaking— hope to see it other times of the year. While there make sure you visit Mud Creek Falls which is only a mile away.

Views are Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our time at your beautiful home in the sky. The panoramic views are amazing! The home is comfortable and clean and more than spacious enough for 6 adults. The roads to Sky Valley and throughout the community are easy to drive. Home is close to many attractions in NC and Ga. We are already planning a future trip!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Besides the view, the first thing we noticed was how clean the home was. So many rentals are only clean superficially, but this home was CLEAN. Lovely home, with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
