CEDAR LOG CABIN IN THE WOODS- 2 FIREPLACES, SKY LIGHTS, WIFI, HOT TUB!

Highlands Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 which includes sleeper/sofa in living ro)

Casa Sueños (House of Dreams) is a magical escape into a Fairy Tale setting. This cedar log home is surrounded by woods.

Every morning birds will sing you wake up songs. Gorgeous wood peckers can be seen from the wrap-around deck. The sun rises through the trees into the master bedroom.

At night, the stars shine through the sky light. There is no more romantic setting... yet it's great to share with lots of family and friends as well.

Casa is just 10 minutes from the beautiful Main St. in Highlands, yet it's cozy and tucked away in the woods. You will absolutely love it and return often. Guaranteed!

My daughter and I (pictured) have shared Casa Sueños with our friend Pat ever since Pat and I were wandering down Main Street in Highlands and got curious about what the area had to offer. We walked into a realtor and asked what they had in mountain log cabins with fireplaces. Casa Sueños was the first property they showed us and it was love at first sight. We didn't plan to buy but we left the proud owners and have been loving it ever since.

Karl Ellins purchased this cabin in 2005

Getting up to the cabin is quick and easy for us with a 2 hour flight into Atlanta from Miami and then an easy drive to Highlands. As easy as it is to get to it seems a million miles away once you get there.

We have the best of both worlds with Main Street less than 10 minutes away and the solitude of the cabin. Highlands is a great little town with lots to offer including great restaurants, shopping, art, culture, all with a friendly atmosphere.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Two families visited this beautiful cabin in the woods while attending a wedding in the Highlands area.

The property was a little hard to find at first but once there it turned out to be very convenient to the Highlands area. The cabin had everything we needed and the kids had a ball in the hot tub and hiking around the area. The cabin was very clean with the exception of a couple of spiders that freaked out the women. It is deep in the woods after all.

The bedrooms took care of our whole group and were comfortable. With its location it was extremely quiet.

We would definitely return to this cabin if we would return to the area.

DECOMPRESSION

  • 5 of 5
First off, I have to say that Karl is a delight. He is easy-going, thorough, and flexible. Our crew (two people, three pups) were originally scheduled to stay for Valentine's Day weekend, however, due to inclement weather, Karl agreed to reschedule for a later date that was suitable for both of our schedules.

We work in a very busy atmosphere, so this was a perfect getaway. Literally, all that we needed to do was decide what we wanted to eat and go to the grocery. The house is huge, in fact, we didn't even go into the two other bedrooms except to view the decor. It was really important to me to find a cabin the "feel" of a cabin. This choice was perfect. We enjoyed every bit of our stay!

Thanks Karl, we plan on returning!!

Owner's Response: First of all, thank you! Secondly, it takes two to tango and you were also a pleasure to work with. That was quite a snow storm and your flexibility was greatly appreciated. The cabin is a perfect place if you have to get snowed in but I respect Melanie's call that it was a freak storm (the worse in 25 years I was told) and better for everyone to shuffle schedules. Glad it was a great stay and we will look forward to your next.

PEACE & SERENITY

Peace & Serenity
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the beautiful Casa Suenos cabin, along with a couple of friends. The cabin was the perfect size for two couples. We had the master bedroom suite, and they had the other wing of the cabin which includes a guest room (and children's room) with two bathrooms on that side. We enjoyed the hot-tub, the porch swing, the fireplaces, and the outdoor fire pit where we roasted marshmallows. The cabin was Exactly as advertised and shown on the website. It's cozy, comfortable, clean, and has Everything you need; other than some drinks and food which you can pick up at the Mountain Fresh Grocery market in town. Mountain Fresh also serves great breakfast & lunch. Town is just an easy 10 minute drive from the cabin, and has good restaurants. We ate at Wild Thyme, and Lakeside Restaurant which we would recommend. There's also a pizza place for a more casual meal. One night we bought groceries and barbecued burgers at the cabin. We also got a great massage in town at Taylor & Barnes Spa. For the adventure seekers, it's an easy drive to Highlands Aerial Park for Zip Lining. The staff there was friendly and extremely safety conscious every step of the way. For those who don't mind a little hike to get the heart pumping, we would recommend a hike to the top of Whiteside Mountain (4930 ft.) - the view at the top is worth all the heavy breathing on the way up. Also, the most beautiful site to see is nearby Dry Falls. Walk to the bottom and walk behind the Falls. Beautiful photo ops. We also visited Bridal Veils Falls which you can drive behind. We flew from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta, and were disappointed at what an ordeal it was to get through Atlanta airport. It was a very long walk to/from the rental car (including a few trains and elevators). And then a 2 1/2 hour drive to/from the cabin in NC. Next time we would look into whether there is a closer, easier airport. We hear Allegiant Air flies direct from Ft. Laud to Asheville. The only down side of the cabin was that internet was extremely slow when the 4 of us were on-line, but we were there to connect with nature after all. We and our friends are already talking about a return trip to Casa Suenos.

BEST SPRING BREAK EVER

  • 5 of 5
Me and my friends from college came up to Casa Suenos and used the house for spring break! We were blown away as soon as we pulled up. The pictures do not do it justice! The house is in amazing condition and even more gorgeous in person. Comfortably sleeps a lot of people with so many beds! The hot tub was a lovely addition that we used at least twice a day! Beyond the deck there is a small patio with a chimnea and chairs that has a nice view into the woods and is very fun to gather around at night! The house has all the amenities we needed like wifi and cable! Being only 10 minutes from downtown Highlands was a huge perk! The owner is very on top of things and nice! It was a pleasure to rent from him!

AWESOME SPRING BREAK !

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at Cass Sueno! The cabin was perfect. Clean, quiet, comfortable and everything we needed for a relaxing break. Close to town, but really private at the same time. Loved the hot tub, fireplace, and the cabin was beautiful. Karl was very helpful and great to work with & always available. We hope to return again !

EXCELLENT LOCATION, IMPECCABLE CABIN

  • 5 of 5
Would highly recommend this cabin to anyone! From the 5-10 minute drive to beautiful Highlands to the brand new hot tub to the cozy fireplaces, this place is perfect! The beds were incredibly comfortable. The grill is an excellent touch-we got to grill out steaks and burger while there. The kitchen is stocked with everything you might need. The owner is excellent to work with as well.
