Refund Policy: We're pleased to refund 90% of your payment if your cancellation is outside 45 days of arrival with a $50 cancellation fee.(For monthly, within 60 days). Regrettably, we can not offer refunds inside 45 days, as it's difficult to rent vacation properties on short notice. However, if we can re- rent the property for the cancelled period, or a portion thereof, we will refund any amounts recovered from the new rental, less the 10% and $50 fee. Prices subject to change without notice. Paid reservations with deposits confirm original price.

If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.

About Whitney Butler

David & Mary have visited Highlands for 30 years, initially camping. We have traveled in many areas of the world and have included some of our treasures for all to enjoy in this very special home Antiques, artwork, and Persian rugs. We love to hike, cook and garden. David's artwork is hung throughout our home.

Why Whitney Butler chose Highlands

Highlands is a rare gem in the mountain communities. It has quaint charm, natural beauty and abundant hiking, waterfalls for day adventures, while world class shopping and restaurants await you at days end. We chose this neighborhood because it is the perfect combination of mountain solitude with all the conveniences of being close to town.

What makes this cottage unique

The central location, peaceful views and living combines the indoors and the outdoors. Hiking, waterfalls, nearness to town make this the perfect setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Mary, We had a lovely time and enjoyed the porch and fireplace so much. No one back home believes me when I tell them we had a blazing fire and I was covered up in a blanket. We would still like to slip away in August now that grandkids have a longer break. I had been away from computer since the 14th and we were coming in from Washington and Williamsburg so I had not checked my email. Because we had just left the congestion and noise of the big city, the mtns. were a double blessing. Thanks again. Will recommend your home to others.

Spectacular Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this cabin for a weekend getaway with old friends. We were thoroughly impressed by the cleanliness, the details, and the conveniences. The outdoor fireplace was a huge hit! The owners were extremely easy to work with as well. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Getaway

Great cabin for a fun girls getaway. Beautifully decorated, fully equipped with a gorgeous outdoor area. Loved hanging out in the hot tub with a roaring fire just a few feet away!

Fabulous Christmas Memories Made!

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible and memorable Christmas get away! This house is perfect for a family vacation. We had family from the age of 5 to 75 and everyone enjoyed our time in this fabulous home. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and utensils so no need to bring your own. The bedrooms are comfortable size with unbelievably comfortable mattresses! We loved both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces with gas starters. The outdoor space is incredibly inviting and cozy. We loved hanging in the hot tub, at 25 degrees, with the fire going...it was perfect! The owners were very responsive to us before and during our stay. Make sure you get the info from the owners on ordering firewood...it arrived before we arrived which was perfect! Highlands is a great place to shop, get pampered at the spa, and have delicious food. Madison's, Wild Thyme, and Cypress were our favorites. Don't miss Mountain Fresh Grocery and Wine Market for lunch and a tour of their fresh olive oil and vinegar bar! I would recommend this beautiful home to all my friends and family. You will not be disappointed!

Mountain Getaway with a Snowy Surprise Ending

  • 5 of 5
Cabin is well kept and has all the essentials to make your stay feel like home and enjoyable. Love the look and feel of the decor. The main chandelier in the living room did not work, everything else was fully functional. Very convenient to have gas fireplaces and for the gas grill on the patio to be plumbed for gas. The grill cooked a very tasty pork tenderloin. Beautiful views of the surrounding areas. A nice walk around the neighborhood to see some ponds, mini-waterfalls and plenty of benches to enjoy the outdoors. On our last night, we ended getting about 1.5" of snow that stuck. Made for a snowy hot tub surprise and gorgeous pictures the next day. This snow shower wasn't in the forecast, just a pop up. Just west in the city, there wasn't any snow, made for a great ending to a wonderful trip. Looking forward to another mountain getaway in the future.

Perfectly Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We are actually still visiting...I just knew I needed to leave a review or else I would have a difficult time remembering to write once I get home.

This has been an absolutely perfect trip. In my experience, it is very rare to find a vrbo rental that lives up to the hype of the listing. But in this case, I actually don't believe the listing does it justice. It is the perfect place for those looking for a quiet, secluded, comfortable place with a view that has all the conveniences you could want.

It is well-stocked, clean, and beautiful! Sitting on a corner lot, you can experience the most amazing sunsets with nothing to obstruct your view. We have two small children and I am usually pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness and safety, but never once felt like I needed to do anything special to keep them protected from "germs". Haha. There are no safety measures taken for children (chemicals under cabinets are easily accessible, glass coffee table, etc) but I didn't expect there would be, so I wasn't disappointed. We just made a point to set some ground rules with her and she did a good job keeping cabinets closed.

Overall, I can honestly say it was the perfect experience. Communication with the owners was also very easy throughout the process, which was nice.

Our stay in your home was great, we loved it! The home is lovely, we spent most of our time in the outdoor patio. Location was great close to both Highlands downtown and Cashiers downtown. Looking forward to returning next summer:)
