Overview

Overview

Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 BR + 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

A slice of heaven, only a 2 hour drive from Atlanta and 2 miles from Main Street in Highlands.

Enjoy a roaring fire (one of three fireplaces) while listening to the sounds of the rushing whitewater nearby. WAGMORE transports you far away from the 'hustle and bustle' of life where relaxing or dining on the large screened in porch is a favorite among guests.

In the summer, escape the heat to a paradise where the average temperature is 78 degrees. And with an elevation of 4,100 feet, Highlands is a choice mountain get-away which attracts the savvy & sophisticated vacationer, close to magnificent waterfalls and scenic hiking trails. WAGMORE is 2 miles to Main Street Highlands where you can eat, shop and play.

In addition to being almost 3,600 square feet, Wagmore is ideal for enjoying the Mountain experience with two Master bedrooms: one is a 'master on main' and the other is a terrace level suite with a private balcony overlooking the rushing water and its own living room with a fireplace and dining area (both suites have King beds). The third level opens to an inviting library landing and separates the two upstairs bedrooms, each with their own bath and Queen Bed, not to mention views of the water.

From the moment you walk into WAGMORE, you will feel the love and caring put into creating a special home where no detail has been forgotten. Welcoming and gracious, WAGMORE will be a favorite place to return.

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 4th 2014 Week:



Loved, loved, loved! Your home was beautiful! No one wants to go home. If we have to choose, our favorite room would be the porch. Crazy about the babbling brook.

Just returned from another great visit to Wagmore! We have stayed here several times and always look forward to our next visit. Frank's home is absolutely a perfect get-away and he is the best to deal with! Can't wait to get back again.

Perfect for Multiple Generations!

  • 5 of 5
Our three-generation family, plus one very happy dog, found Wagmore "just right" for our week's stay in Highlands. The houses's layout is a great blend of personal space with 4 BR and 4.5 BA as well as 4 comfortable, common areas. The decor and features of the house gave us such a luxurious feeling. Nature provides a peaceful backdrop with trees and the creek. Frank, the owner, is such a delight with whom to do business. Don't miss the hike to Pinkie Falls! I highly recommend Wagmore to anyone visiting the Highlands area.

We wanted to stay there forever!

  • 5 of 5
The photos on this website just do not do this stunning house any justice whatsoever. Everything was perfect. The furnishings, the beds, the cleanliness, the grounds, the wifi and the sound of the running stream were all wonderful. The owner was great to deal with too! We both highly recommend this beautiful and comfortable home! We will be back!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Wagmore in early October. Our party consisted of 2 couples with 2 children each. We had plenty of room for everyone. The outdoor space was excellent and the outdoor fireplace was great for cool October evenings. Loved listening to the rushing creek below. Would definitely stay here again. Frank's hospitality was excellent. Highly recommended.

August 31st to September 7th Friends and Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at Wagmore and had a fabulous time. We were there for a family wedding and had a gathering at the house the Thursday before the wedding. Everyone loved the house. The space was wonderful. It is beautifully furnished, but very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. I hope to become a frequent renter. The area has so many wonderful restaurants, shops and fun hikes, especially sliding rocks and water falls. Great time!
