We live in Atlanta GA and have been coming up to Highlands since 1999. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with this magical mountain community and we are sure you will too. We have two charming rental properties in Highlands; Stone’s Throw Log Cabin and Lakeview Cottage. Both places are decorated to reflect the spirit of the mountains and are extremely well-maintained and impeccably clean. Come stay with us and enjoy the beauty of Highlands.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our fifth annual stay at Stone's Throw and the experience was great as usual. We love "our" little getaway cabin. The two bathrooms are a luxury for the two of us--and would be fine for four people. The cabin has everything we need. The heating system is incredibly fast and quiet. The gaslog fireplace adds a romantic touch.

The setting is very good, private, and quiet. It is outside the delightful village of Highlands, but close enough to walk in to the shops, restuarants, and, of course, Kilwin's Ice Cream. The museum of Visual Arts always has stunningly good exhibits. The Botanical garden has a great trail through a forest with labeled trees and beautiful flowers in season. It's a great hike.

Besides the cabin, our greatest motivation for going to highlands is the many wonderful hiking opportunities--up mountains to beautiful vistas and to the numerous waterfalls in the area. But coming back to the cabin, taking a great shower, cooking a terrific meal, and settling in for an evening of reading or watching TV or one of the DVDs provided, tops it all off. We hope to return for many years to come.

MULTIPLE REPEAT VISITOR

  • 5 of 5
As always, Stone's Throw was a welcome retreat from the hustle of the ATL. My wife and I have stayed there 4 times, with two of these visits with our two kiddos, who love the rustic look and feel of the cabin. They played checkers for HOURS! We played Monopoly this time, as the weather was a bit rainy, which was FINE!

The cabin is so nice, everything you need for a perfect getaway.

We can't wait to get back up there!

WONDERFUL VACATION STAY IN HIGHLANDS, NC AT STONE'S THROW

Wonderful Vacation Stay In Highlands, NC At Stone's Throw
  • 5 of 5
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week's vacation in Highlands, staying at the Stone's Throw
log cabin. It is spacious, has very comfortable beds, and the owner has thoughtfully provided
just about anything you could possibly need to make the stay comfortable.

The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, pots, and silverware that are in excellent shape, and
there are even quite a number of seasonings for food on hand.

It is very conveniently located, at about a 4-5 minute drive from downtown Highlands, and is
near other communities of Franklin and Cashiers.

Overall, it was a quiet, peaceful place to stay with a lot of natural beauty, and we thoroughly
enjoyed. It was well worth the money.

LOVE STONE'S THROW

LOVE Stone's Throw
  • 5 of 5
Stone's Throw feels like our "home away from home". We have stayed there many times, some with our children, some with friends, and some just the two of us. We are always delighted with the convenience of the location, the comfort and homey feeling of the cabin and how kind and helpful Mark always has been to deal with in our booking and any special needs we may have. We would and have recommended this property many times!

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED.

  • 5 of 5
We were impressed with the quaintness of the cabin. Built in the 1930's, very rustic in appearance, but with all recently upgraded bathrooms and kitchen. The gas fireplace was very comforting in the cool evenings. The back porch was a great place to relax and read. The parking area is large enough for several cars or in our case a motorcycle trailer, motorcycle, and tow vehicle.

We really enjoyed our stay and will be back some day.

My Parents Came From Nebraska And We Wanted To Stay In The Mountains In NC. We Picked A Stones Yhrow Because It Had A Recliner So My Mother Could Sleep In It. Well A Stones Throw Was And Had Everything We Needed. It Was Uniquely Decorated And Was a Very Comfortable stay. We All Enjoyed Ourselves Very Much Up In Highlands And We Recommend Staying At A Stones Thro Getaway.You Will Not Be Disappointed.
