Refund Policy: We're pleased to refund 90% of your payment if your cancellation is outside 45 days of arrival with a $50 cancellation fee.(For monthly, within 60 days). Regrettably, we can not offer refunds inside 45 days, as it's difficult to rent vacation properties on short notice. However, if we can re- rent the property for the cancelled period, or a portion thereof, we will refund any amounts recovered from the new rental, less the 10% and $50 fee. Prices subject to change without notice. Paid reservations with deposits confirm original price.

If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.

David & Mary have visited Highlands for 30 years, initially camping. We have traveled in many areas of the world and have included some of our treasures for all to enjoy in this very special home Antiques, artwork, and Persian rugs. We love to hike, cook and garden. David's artwork is hung throughout our home.

Highlands is a rare gem in the mountain communities. It has quaint charm, natural beauty and abundant hiking, waterfalls for day adventures, while world class shopping and restaurants await you at days end.

The central location, peaceful views and living combines the indoors and the outdoors. Hiking, waterfalls, nearness to town make this the perfect setting.

YOU'VE GOTTA CHOSE THIS ONE!

Great property with very helpful owners. This home has everything you could want or need for a terrific getaway. We especially loved the bathrooms and the gas fireplace was perfect for the cold weather. We just returned January 2009 and were blessed with lots of snow and cold! What a fun time. Highlands is great with numerous shops and delicious restaurants. The hiking is fantastic and snow skiing is within 1 1/2 hr.drive.

A WONDERFUL MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best places we have stayed in our many years of traveling. The house gives a very comfortable feeling when you walk in and, the longer you are there, the more you become aware - and appreciate - the care that is taken with its maintenance and decoration. The location is excellent and the atmosphere is just what we look for when we take time off for a new experience. Congratulations on your achievement of near perfection in creating a wonderful vacation setting.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a home where we could totally relax, be surrounded by nature's beauty, and feel comfortably ensconced. We SUCCEEDED ! Sunny breakfasts on the deck overlooking the lake was the best way to enjoy the mornings. Afternoons strolling through the shops in Highlands or scouting out the many waterfalls was amazing. Wine by the fireplace in the evening was the best way to end each day. We stayed for a week and were sad to leave. We will definitely be coming back.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Wildwood during our first visit to Highlands, NC. We all agree it was the perfect place to stay. The home is very well appointed, with everything you would need and more, including awesome bathrooms and a very nice ungraded kitchen. We cooked most meals in and there were all the needed cooking items. The property is located just a few minutes from many great spots to visit in the area, such as downtown Highlands, Whiteside Mountian, Dry Falls, and Jackson Gem Mine to name a few. The home is also about 15 minutes to Cashiers where you can find an Ingles. We stayed with 3 children under the age of 5 and there was plenty of room for them inside and out. We enjoyed the lake behind the property, the nice back yard to run around, and the great deck. We plan on returning with my parents and grandfather as this is a great one level home perfect for anyone with some difficulty getting around. David and Mary are great to work with as they respond quickly and provide very detailed instructions for your stay. We were very happy with our stay and can't wait to return!

AWESOME HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this home while in Highlands for a family wedding. One of the great features of this property is the location of the Wildwood subdivision. It is conveniently located between Highlands and Cashiers, which made it a great location for all that we wanted to do around our wedding activities.
The home is well appointed and provided us with very comfortable accommodations with all the conveniences of home.
If you are looking for a great place to stay in Highlands you can't go wrong with this home. The owners responded quickly to my inquiry and were great to work with.

GREAT TIME, BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in this beatiful home. We loved the setting; we took advantage of the hot tub, grill, shopping and hiking nearby. The decor is gorgeous and makes you feel like you are experiencing a luxurious getaway all for a reasonable price. The owners were more than accommodating and made us feel very welcome in their home. I would stay at this home again next time we are in Highlands!
