ARTIST'S HOUSE ON 5+ ACRES, WITH CREEK AND VIEWS- NEWLY DONE!

Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

House - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 8-12)

Have a real mountain experience at the newly renovated mountain home on 5+ acres (elevation 3500+). Situated on the actual state line between Georgia and North Carolina (the creek is the state line) and 12 minutes from Highlands, you'll have all the space and privacy you could want.

All furnishings are new, 2008 (except for the antiques, of course), as is most everything except the charm and character of the original house.

The pine paneling and oak floors in the living room give added warmth to the fireplace and those cool summer nights. Original artwork throughout by the artist/owner and local artists.

Leave your cares behind as you settle into a true rural mountain setting- if you don't want the country club or subdivision, the Artist's House is the real thing!

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • children welcome

Though born in North Carolina, I reside in Fl and try to spend as much time in these beautiful mountains as possible. I found the perfect location on 6 acres about two years ago and spent over a year completely renovating and updating the house. I am a photographer-publisher, and enjoy hiking, traveling, and of course, photography.

Michael O'Donovan purchased this house in 2007

It's simply beautiful and the town of Highlands is one of the most charming mountain towns I've found, with great resturants, art galleries and shopping.

This was the perfect setting for our group's retreat. Plenty of room and we loved exploring the house and learning how it all came about. The living room was the perfect place to gather in the evening. The kitchen was just what we needed and was well stocked; we all enjoyed cooking our daily meals there!. There artist' house is was just what our group of 10 including 3 kids needed to slow down and just spend quality time together. The beds were decent and plenty of it. The owner was very helpful and accommodating at our arrival house didn't have heater on as soon as we called owner at 7:00 am gave us instructions what to do and kind providing information on the cabin and surrounding area. Cabin was clean and would recomend it to anyone!. We definitely would love to stay again!. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!.

We enjoyed our fall vacation so much more for being in the Artist's House. It was rustic with artist touches of beauty. Every window frames a lovely view of nature. We enjoyed cooking together in the spacious kitchen. There were apple trees on the property and our 5 year old picked bags of apples!
So, we cooked apple everything. What fun. Good memories.

we had a wonderful family weekend getaway at the "artist's house!" our three kids, 7, 6 and 4 thoroughly enjoyed the bunk beds, apple tree and many areas to explore outside. the wood burning fireplace was an added bonus too! it was clean, comfortable and cozy. just what our little family needed to slow down and just spend quality time together.

My husband, our friends and their toddler thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Artist's house. The weekend we stayed was particularly chilly, but we were warm and cozy and enjoyed cooking our meals in the spacious kitchen each night. We were a short drive from Highlands (~15 min) and literally right down the road from some amazing hiking trails and waterfalls. This house truly felt welcoming and warm---a perfect place to just sit and relax and get away. The kitchen and bathrooms were very clean (a particular concern of mine when renting), and the beds were decent, although I might advise you to bring your own pillows.

Thanks so much to Michael for sharing his wonderful property! We would surely return again in the future!

Lovely rustic

My husband and I planned a last minute, all-children-left-behind, get away and settled on the Artist's House. The owner was very helpful and kind providing information on the cabin and surrounding area. We were interested in hiking and escaping city life, which was easy. The house has the charm of a log cabin but offers plenty of comfort. It was clean and well maintained, which is always a great joy (and surprise) to someone terribly allergic to mold and dust mite. The house is a little (15 min) ride from Highlands proper and a stone throw away from great hiking. At the end of the day a couple of really good restaurants in Highlands top it off, I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to unwind. We'll be back.
