Why David L. Wallace chose Highlands

We have had a vacation home in the Highlands/Cashiers area since 1997. We live in Florida and really want a getaway from the summer heat. We also miss the snow in winter, and this area has never disappointed us. The dining is wonderful, and we never get tired of the variety of restaurants.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
We only stayed 3 nights at 96 Sparkling Lake, but it was 3 wonderful days/nights. The cottage is well maintained and very clean. The kitchen is modern and would be great if you plan to cook while you are visiting Highlands. Oh speaking of Highlands, the cottage is only a few minutes from downtown Highlands. The beds were very comfortable. Not sure what was my favorite part of the trip, but one of them was sitting on the porch and looking out at the pond. We will definitely stay at 96 Sparkling Lake cottage again.

Our third year

  • 5 of 5
We just completed another wonderful stay at the cottage for our third consecutive year. This is a terrific get away vacation spot. The cottage is well located --2 miles from downtown Highlands - and beautifully furnished and landscaped. We have enjoyed 3 great vacations there and plan to return for many more.

I should add that the owners -- David and Joan -- are really super people and it has been a pleasure getting to know them.

Spectacular on Sparkling Lake

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous long weekend. The cottage was"sparkling" clean. The kitchen had all upgrades and every gadget you could ask for. The beds were so comfortable, very nice after a day of hiking. The large deck, fire pit , lake and beautiful gardens made our trip so peaceful and relaxing! Great amenities! Even our 2 chocolate labs were in bliss! It's such an easy 5 minute trip to downtown also!

RELAXING MOUNTAIN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the pleasure of staying in the Sparkle Lake Cottage for a relaxing get-a-way to see the beautiful fall leaves and mountains of Highlands, NC. The cottage exceeded our every expectation! The view from the living room to the Lake was breathtaking and we enjoyed many amenities like turning on lights, fans and the fireplace by remote control. The rooms were spacious and organized; a great get-a-way for families with small children or teenagers (or both!). The cottage was SPOTLESS and I have a very critical eye in this respect. We cooked at the cottage much of the time and the kitchen had all the necessities of home! Granite counter tops, stainless steel NEW appliances and LOTS of counter space. We felt very secure with electronic locks and outside lighting. We could easily see ourselves returning for EVERY season. There was a great propane gas grill on the deck and small boat for fishing the lake in the summer, beautiful fall scenery and AMAZING local hiking trails for fall, and we'd love to see this special place coated with snow and curl up by the fireplace with hot cocoa next winter! We will go back AGAIN and AGAIN!

This cabin exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin to be near lots of outdoor/shopping/mountain activities. Great location for all of these. The cabin was spotlessly clean. One of our guests has rented 10+ VRBO cabins and they commented that Sparkle Lake was WAY above the cleanliness of the others.

What impressed us was the high level of "personal touches" throughout the cabin. There are dozens of little things all around the place that really make you feel right at home....Almost anything that you would suddenly "wish for"....Just look around, it's probably in a drawer somewhere. Pizza wheel cutter, flashlight, hiking stick, kindling/firewood for the outdoor fire ring, movies, champagne flutes You name it. It's almost like the owners sat down with a big sheet of paper and said "I wonder what our guests could POSSIBLY want?" Then they went out and bought it. It almost became a running joke among our guests.....It's really hard to play "stump the band" with the owners here, they have probably already thought of it!

The cabin itself is large and very deluxely renovated/appointed. Rooms are large and easy to live in. The only negative comment that I can list is that (for larger groups) the place could really use an extra bathroom. The one in the Master is fine, but the 2nd bath is very small, narrow and cramped. So keep that in mind for larger groups.

But overall -- High praise. Very well pleased!

Great Relaxing visit

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a wonderful vacation trip to the Cottage @ Sparkle Lake.
The lake was really peaceful and quiet and the Cottage was extra nice, clean,
very well equipped and very comfortable, just as described. David, the owner
was extremely helpful and easy to work with. The location is perfect, close
to Highland and near Cashiers as well. We would highly recommend this
cottage to anyone seeking a quiet relaxing visit to the Mts. of N. C.
