My family (husband and children ages 13 and 11) recently stayed here over Spring Break. This house is even better than it appears in the photos. It is conveniently located just a short drive or hike to downtown. My husband and I enjoyed hiking the trail behind the house into town each morning for coffee at Buck's while our children slept late. The house is fully stocked with everything you might need during your stay including games, puzzles, skewers for s'mores, a fabulous porch to view the evening sunset, multiple books and hiking guides about the area, a dart board in the basement and a fully stocked kitchen. And the house is sparkling clean to boot! The owner, Debbie, was great to work with and provided us with all of the information we needed prior to our arrival. The hiking in the area is truly spectacular. Whiteside Mountain and Secret Falls were our favorites and are not to be missed! We also especially enjoyed Ugly Dog Pub for casual fare and a great selection of craft beer and Wolfgang's for a nice dinner. Both places featured local trout on their menus during our stay. We also spent some time in the Asheville/Hendersonville area and stopped at the Cashiers Farmers Market on the way back to Highlands. Their barbeque was excellent! We also picked up some of their frozen biscuits to make at the house. They were the best I have ever tasted! And for an unexpected treat, we spotted a bear cub wandering through the side yard of the house and down the driveway one morning. Don't wait....book this house now, you won't be sorry!
Really enjoyed our stay!
Pluses: Plenty of room, comfortable & cozy. Plenty of towels, wash clothes, etc Fishing off the back in Mirrow Lake was lots of fun. Almost everything was found in good order in spite the fact we were probably the first renters of the season. We would definitely return for another visit.
Negatives: housekeeping - coffee pot obviously went uncleaned over the off season. In a mess. No curtain on outside door downstairs. The dish washer is a little loose and could use some attention.
The TV’s themselves are very good. Good programming could be better - the ability to get local tv stations and movies was not good. This area could use some attention.
All that being said, this is a very convenient location near to downtown. Everything we needed, with exception of the above listed items, which are mentioned only to provide the owner information that he needs to know, were provided.
Bottom line - we would gladly stay ther again. The owner is very cooperative and anxous to please us. Overall - Good Stay!!
Thanks, John, for you help in providing us the attention and help we needed, and when we needed.
We really appreciate you help and concern for us to have a comfortable stay. We did,
Sincerely, Bobby Overmier, Panama City Beach, Fl. The
