Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, I wanted you to know what an amazing week we had. When going through hundreds of houses on the internet one never knows what you'll actually find once you arrive, your house was everything I had on my check list, truly paradise in the mountains... We all did white water and biking and hiked down into many falls, truly a treat from the Florida flat lands and heat.

Take care,

K. T., Florida

FABULOUS HOME AND THE PERFECT EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We have travelled frequently to Highlands for more than 30 years and have often stayed for several weeks at a time as we did on this trip. Without a doubt, this is the most outstanding home we have visited. It is beautifully and lovingly maintained, professionally designed and decorated, and has an intelligent floorplan offering an upstairs master and two downstairs bedroomns and a separate sitting room. The many personal touches make you feel special and more like welcomed family than rental guests. The kitchen has every imaginable tool you could ever need. The cookbooks are a dream for any home cook, and we used them several times. The decks are in the tree tops with magnificent specimen trees including hemlocks and large leaf magnolias. We were greeted in early July with rhododendron blooming over the entrance which was a magical experience. The canoes were so much fun, and we enjoyed many evenings watching the water at the boathouse.
The location is perfect and about half way between Highlands and Cashiers so we could easily get to Canyon Kitchen at Lonesome Valley for dinner with one of the best views in the world or hike to the newly opened state park at The Gorges with a wonderful visitors center with a picnic on a rock perched above Horsepasture River for another grand view. We also visited Southern Highlands Plateau which is a private garden on top of Toxaway that propogates and displays native plants in a glorious setting. Reservations can be obtained on the internet, but we went with a group of enthusiastic gardeners from a Zahner Lecture at the Highlands Nature Center that was accompanied by a botanist from UNC Charlotte. There are many lectures thoroughout the season, and they are highly recommended. The Performing Art's Center has plays all summer and we attended two during our three weeks at this wonderful Highlands home. The Highlands Chamber Music Festival is truly outstanding with many, many performances during the summer and we enjoyed several. We hiked at the Nature Center, Whiteside Mountain, Cliffside Lake, Chinquopin and Panthertown which was our favorite.
We will always stay in this home when we visit Highlands. There is no reason to look anyplace else. It is perfect in every way. If I could rate it more than a FIVE I would! Thank you so much, Bruce!

Our family had a wonderful stay in this beautiful Lake Osseroga home. All amenities were provided & the home's decor was mountain perfection! On two days, we used the canoes and boathouse--gorgeous! Lastly, the owner was an absolute pleasure! We will be back next year!
