'WAGMORE' LUXURY HOME ON WHITE WATER NEW YEAR'S AVAILABLE!

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 4,000 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.

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.

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!

Mountain bliss

  • 5 of 5
I have rented Wagmore for 5 years and plan on a 6th. This house is spacious, luxurious, and comfortable, but it is the fireplace on the porch and the continuous soothing sound of the brook below that keeps bringing me back. The owner could not be more accommodating. It feels as if you are in the middle of the mountains and yet there are wonderful neighbors nearby. I recommend Wagmore as the perfect retreat for a houseful of friends or family.

A LARGE SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We brought our dental office to Wagmore for Staff Appreciation. From start to finish it was a quality trip. Frank's home is fantastic, a place you can visit and never want to leave the property. It is so roomy, there was plenty of personal space, but we all migrated to the screened porch to spend our hours, relaxing in front of a roaring fire! The owner checked on us to be sure we were settled and happy. It would be hard to be otherwise at Wagmore!

My personal feelings

  • 5 of 5
Above the top, beautiful home and the owner was just one fantastic person to do business with. The home is decorated to the hilt which made you feel so welcome. Only minus feature was in hind sight of looking at the pictures online I realized that there were no pictures of the kitchen. I'm a gourmet cook and it was a little difficult preparing meals for our group.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
I really don't know where to start-
(1) Possibly with the amazing setting, close to town but feeling a world away, or
(2) Maybe with the 5 star decor showing off not only the amazing quality of construction, but also the attention to detail of every aspect of the interior design, or
(3) Perhaps I should begin with the unparalleled accomodating hospitality of Frank, the owner and designer of WAGMORE...
Our young family decided somewhat "last minute" to travel to Highlands from Atlanta to relax over New Year's week. What a great decision we made to rent this home! Upon walking into WAGMORE, our jaws dropped. It is fantastic. Not only is every detail of its design attended to, but the home welcomes you with its warmth and comfort.
Working with Frank was like working with a good friend. He was so helpful and attentive. Even when it snowed unexpectedly, he went out of his way to ensure we were taken care of with enough firewood and a tow truck to be arranged if we were in need of it! However, despite being "snowed in", we were thrilled, because the snow gave us the excuse (with no guilt) to relax inside this wonderful house for 48 hours right in the middle of our vacation and not leave!
We have rented many, many homes on VRBO throughout the USA and Caribean. Lots of those rentals, however, have been in Highlands NC. This home, far and away, took first prize as the most COMFORTABLE, BEAUTIFUL, WELL SUPPLIED, CONVENIENTLY LOCATED home we have ever rented.
The only reason I would hesitate to write such a divine review is that I don't want anyone else to compete with us to rent it when would like to return. We will definately be back!

Could Not Have Been Better!

  • 5 of 5
We recently were at Wagmore for our family Christmas vacation. Frank was so helpful with our arrangements and his home is absolutely stunning. Every detail was taken care of and we were treated like his personal guests instead of renters. The home accommodated our crowd easily with private bedrooms for our three grown children and two spouses. The fireplaces make it feel so cozy and the white water in the backyard makes it easy to want to just get groceries and stay put - which we did most of the time. Frank's suggestion of Pinkie Falls was a fun mini-hike. I can't say enough good things about our time at Wagmore - it was the general consensus that this home rental was our best ever.
