Highwoods Est. 2009:
Welcome to our home located at the Old Edwards Golf Club in Highlands Cove. We have attempted to make our home as comfortable as possible with the best furnishings and finishes to make your rental stay in Highlands an exceptional experience. There is nothing like sitting on the screen porch and rocking in the cool breezes at 4000 feet elevation. Pour some wine and listen to the birds and the occasional tee shot from number 12. Our Chef's kitchen will inspire those who cook and be admired by those who prefer to eat out. Dining for 8 or more at our expandable table in the dining room or step outside and dine on our expandable teak set. Lower level bar has frig, ice maker and microwave with loads of additional glassware.
Comfort you can Feel:
Lounge back and relax because comfort in our home and bedrooms is our number one priority. That's why we are offering all Peacock Alley bedding and toweling to give you that 'hotel feel'. All Bedrooms have in suite baths and there are no adjoining walls in the bedrooms creating the utmost in privacy. Both the Upper Level and Lower level offer half baths so no guests have to enter a bedroom to use the bathroom. Bedding Coverlets and Duvets are all from Sferra, Peacock Alley, Williams Sonoma Home, Pottery Barn or Made to Measure. Curtains are from the Silk Trading Company except for the 13 foot Living Room Drapes which were custom made with Schumacher toile fabric.
Furnishings Old and New:
Furnishings are from many sources around Atlanta and purchased at auction from Selkirks in St Louis. You will find old and new alike placed to create a nice visual worn in feel. Large Couch dimensions were intentionally selected for lying down - you'll find two inside and our favorite on the upper level screen porch. At night click on the gas log fireplace, stretch out and take it all the fresh air.
Lower Level Sleeping/Napping and Reading Screened Porch. We were inspired from our childhoods when we slept on the 'sleeping porch' on summer nights. So we added two hanging twin beds from the Chesapeake Collection at Pottery Barn for relaxing. Just hang out or make the beds with our full set of sheets, blankets and down comforters and sleep outdoors. These are standard twin size, with firm cushions, so comfortable. A dream come true.
An adjoining deck offers designer furnishings from McKinnon and Harris, Palechek, and Richardson Allen. See Photo

Bill Gilmore purchased this house in 2009
The temperature is always so nice - who knew you needed a sweater in the summer. Historic areas are just amazing like the High Hampton Inn - you have to see it - like a movie set. The Tailgate Market in Cashiers on Saturday Morning - fresh eggs - and blueberries.
We love rocking on the screen porch and drinking a glass of wine; enjoying the fresh air and long range views. Take it easy with a book or conversation with a friend on our two twin size hanging beds on the covered lower level screen porch. We have hiking right out the door or a short drive away. Gated Community and wonderful neighbors. Weekly renters now enjoy Molton Brown Bath Amenities.
We had the most wonderful visit to the mountains. The weather was perfect, being with family and friends was healing, and your house was marvelous. The perfect place for us to gather. My brother and I have been traveling together every summer for over 15 years and as you can imagine we have rented lots of homes. Your home fits into the top for sure. We loved your home so much that we would like to visit again next year. Need to decide on dates and as soon as we do I will let you know. So many mountain trails yet to explore!!
Thanks again for sharing your most wonderful home. Every whim was anticipated by you, the sign of a thoughtful home owner. Thanks so much.
No need to look any further for a place to stay in Highlands….THIS is your house!! Every year 7 lifelong friends plan a girls weekend away. This year we chose Highlands, NC and we could not have booked a better home. From answering all my annoying questions before booking to having someone meet us at the gate to escort up the slightly icy and curvy roads to the house, Bill knows how to make renters feel welcome and secure. The home is absolutely gorgeous. The finest linens; top of the line appliances; exquisitely elegant, yet very comfortable furniture; everything you could want or need in the kitchen; garage full of firewood; and breathtaking views. You will want for nothing! We can't wait to come back when it's a little warmer and enjoy the amazing screen porch and deck areas. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
Our family spent a birthday weekend tucked away in this stunning mountain home for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. Every detail was well thought out and ensured that our stay would be enjoyable. The kitchen had every top of the line tool you could possibly need to cook a gourmet meal, the bedrooms and bathrooms were cozy and were supplied with all of the essentials and every space in the house guaranteed that you could get cozy and cuddle up during the frigid winter months. Also, to top it all off, the housekeeper Kim and her mother were so polite and helped keep the house as clean as possible.
Our only recommendation for the owners would be to have someone prepare the house for the arrival of the guests. We arrived pretty late and the house was difficult to find in the darkness, and upon arrival we had to go on a scavenger hunt to find the house key, turn on the water, turn on the heater, etc. It would just make the guests feel more at ease if the house was prepared beforehand.
Overall, we loved our stay at this gorgeous home and would recommend it to anyone! Whether you are having a family vacation or are going on a getaway with friends, this house would suit all of your needs and go above your expectations.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful home. It was everything it was advertised to be and more! Beautifully decorated, yet extremely comfortable - we instantly felt at home. The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance and utensil needed - which is saying a lot considering we cooked our Thanksgivig meal there! The location was perfect as it is halfway between Highlands and Cashiers. Our grown children came from 4 different cities and took vacation time to join us. Each one asked when we would return - and our answer was as soon as possible!
Perfect house for our girls trip. Every bedroom is beautiful with nice soft sheets. The owner paid attention to every single detail to make sure that all of his renters new where everything was and how to operate all the systems. As a matter of fact, my friends and I are stuck here today during the first snow storm of the season and I cannot think of anywhere else I would rather be :) I cannot recommend this house enough!!!
We are four couples that have rented homes for 10 years in the states. We have visited many special places. This home has been the best. From the minute you come in the door you are welcomed. Everthing has been thought of to make your stay comfortable. We hated to leave the home and the area, Thank you Bill for making this year a special one,
Perfect house! Nothing was needed except to relax and enjoy the beautiful mountains!
Having two washers and dryers was wonderful. The sleeping porch was ideal for the afternoon nap. The only challenge was deciding which porch to enjoy with our morning coffee and evening drinks. I had great communication with the owner. If you decide to rent this house, it will not disappoint.
