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.

Excellent mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

My family (three young children) and another family (2 children) just finished up a great stay at the Wagmore. Location is very convenient to downtown Highlands, yet, is situated in a secluded picturesque location. The constant sound of runny water over rocks while sitting in front of the outdoor fire makes for a great end to the evening. Rooms are spacious and have all the needed appointments, and more. We will be going back.

Wagmore is Incredible.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. Everything was perfect. We had 4 couples there for Valentines weekend. The views are beautiful. Highlands, NC is a wonderful place for shopping or dining out. The highlight of our time at Wagmore was spent at the house enjoying the beautiful home and each others company. We look forward to our next stay at Wagmore.

Wagmore exceeded our expectations in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Wagmore in Highlands, NC was incredible!!! Our wonderful experience began with the delightful owner. Wagmore is warm and beautifully appointed in every way, even to the books on the nightstand (many of which I've added to my reading list). This trip was a get-away in early December for my daughter-in-laws, before the the craziness of the holidays....we have decided to make it an annual tradition. Thank you for a delightful, relaxing place to unwind.
