About Gigi

We live and work in New Orleans but adore the mountains and come up every chance we get!

Gigi purchased this house in 1920

Why Gigi chose Highlands

This home has been in my husband's family since 1920. 3 generations have grown up hiking in the smokies and have learned a great appreciation of nature.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing on the porch and taking in the great view or sunset is an unforgettable way to end a day in Highlands. Take a walk to town, hike up Satulah Mountain from the trail right behind the house. Enjoy fireplace on cold nights, and star gazing in front yard.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed here and loved our visit. It was secluded but close enough to town that we didn't feel completely isolated. The views and the surrounding property were gorgeous! The house was very clean and well maintained. We didn't want to leave!

We loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for several weeks and loved it. What a perfect location; the view from the porch was incredible! What a great spot to enjoy a cocktail and take in those beautiful mountains. Plus it's walkable to town. However, once you're at the house, you feel miles away from civilization. Our kids (9,11,13) loved having their own space in the upstairs loft. There were 8 of us staying here yet we never felt crowded. The house has a comfortable, laid back feel to it. We loved grilling out or using the kitchen to prepare family meals to be enjoyed in the spacious dining room. My family made some wonderful memories here and we'll be back. Thank you!!

Loved the charm, privacy, and proximity to town

  • 5 of 5
This property is amazing. It is so private and quiet but an easy 15-20 minute walk into town. The view from the front porch is why people flock to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Gigi is an incredibly gracious and responsive host. We plan to return to this home for many summers to come!

Old Highlands charm with comfortable front porch to enjoy beautiful views including sunsets. Tucked away in woods but close to town.
Very nice for anyone, particularly family vacation.

Quintessential Historic Highlands Home

  • 4 of 5
The serene setting reminded us of simpler and quieter times…perfect for a relaxing vacation!

My mom stayed in this house as a teenager with my grandparents, and returned with us for the holiday weekend. For her, it brought back many memories of family and historic Highlands. For me, it was a chance to “go back in time” and make new memories with family on this visit to one of the most beautiful places on earth!

The house is ideally located on Satulah Mountain within walking distance of town and to the top of Satulah. It is privately located at the end of the drive, with a turnaround, and from the spacious front porch you can see sweeping views of the nearby mountains and hills. It is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine, family and friends. The front lawn is natural, but manicured, with a privacy hedgerow which is great for playing lawn games or fetch with the dogs! But be careful, being this close to nature may draw the attention of a mama bear and her cubs (which surprised our dogs just as much as it surprised us)! It has a cozy, well-stocked kitchen, which turned out several great meals that were enjoyed in the full dining room with our visiting dinner guests! (The pots, pans and utensils are dated and “well-seasoned” though it’s easy enough to supplement with your own “Chef’s tools”). The wood burning fireplace was perfect for lounging before and after dinner and to read by (just be sure the damper is open). The master bedroom, located at the back, was private and comfortable! If you must stay connected, cell service was excellent and internet is provided. If you visit this timeless cabin, you’ll feel right at home (so don’t forget to water the hostas out front)!

The short: great house, great location, great views, great memories, great time! We will be back!

A Piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fabulous. Beautiful views from the front porch and master bedroom. The house is cozy and love the den with the firepace and comfortable furniture. Plenty of firewood for the chilly nights. Lots of good books for the rainy afternoon. Kitchen is well equiped for cooking. The owners gave a good description of the house, grounds, nearby attractions - good restaurants, Nature Center, closeby hikes, good shopping in town 1 mile away. The house is very secluded which was wonderful. It was very clean, beds comfy with down comforters, lovely dining room. Would certainly do it all over again! Highly recommended.
