Highlands Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 king bedroooms with sunroom futon (cozy sleep for 1or 2), 2.5 baths

Excellent Rates! Tucked away yet 5 minutes from Main Street and other sites: waterfalls, hiking, shopping.

Moonbeam Cottage offers 2000 square feet of open space with vaulted ceilings and soaring windows that bring the outdoors into the living/dining/kitchen area, the loft, the upstairs bedroom and the master bath! The kitchen is an inviting place to entertain and it accommodates serious cooks and impromptu guests. Cedar trimmed floor to ceiling windows and a sliding glass door bring natural light and scenes of the outdoors into the dining room for pleasurable dining. If you prefer to eat alfresco move out onto the long porches front and back or onto the pebble patio. The Master suites boast king size beds, seating, t v 's, and the downstairs bath has a claw foot tub, large walk in shower, water closet and double sinks and the upstairs bath has a built in tub/shower with separate sink and dressing area. The loft offers a futon that is a cozy sleep for two and is adjacent to the upstairs bath. There are two new REI cots that are perfect for children. Moonbeam Cottage is convenient to Main Street, hiking, waterfalls and other recreation opportunities. Twin falls is a lovely walk away; and Glen Falls is about 2 miles and one of the most rewarding hikes in the area with waterfalls, vistas and a creek for dipping toes if you take the trail to the right. In and around Highlands there are long, short, easy and strenuous hikes. Canoes are for rent at the Verandah on the Franklin Rd. Repelling is an opportunity at Whiteside Mtn. New zip line through forests on Dillard Rd.at Sky Valley. Whitewater rafting is available in the area. A memorable sunset can be seen by walking from the biological center up to Sunset Rock(take your drink choice or a picnic because you will want to sit awhile!).

Early spring the hummingbirds return and entertain with their playful antics at the feeders. They share the yard with owls, vireos, squirrels, and the occasional raccoon or rabbit. With the arrival of summer, the wildflowers are in bloom and they are joined by the rhododendron and you find yourself in a forest of rhodo blooms! As time passes the rhododendron showers you with petals as you enjoy the continued coolness of the mountain breezes. Along comes the fall with burst of color everywhere and winter with the occasional snow and eye catching icicles that glitter in the sunlight. Highlands is beautiful throughout the year but there are peak seasons with January and February a bit chilly for many! Please come to Moonbeam Cottage and enjoy the beauty of Highlands and the North Carolina mountains.

We enjoy the beauty and serenity of Highlands and Macon county. We love to hike, picnic, canoe or sit and read on a rainy day on the front porch or by the fire. The most fun is entertaining friends and family at Moonbeam Cottage in this beautiful mountain area!

Wanda Loving purchased this cottage in 2002

We have friends that introduced us to the joys of Highlands over 30 years ago. We have experienced the cool summer temperatures, beautiful fall foliage, the snows of winter and the fun of being in such a beautiful area. We have enjoyed hiking, swimming, picnicking and always finding new experiences in these hills! We visited and rented for years and then decided to build our Moonbeam Cottage in 2002. Now we are ready to share beyond our family.

the coziness of our Moonbeam Cottage and the unique beauty and recreational opportunities in Highlands, NC. Our cottage is tucked away in a forest of mtn.laurel.

The cottage was delightful. The owners have taken great care to make you feel right at home. Very user friendly instructions for the house and helpful area information. I wish every rental was set up this way! The house is spotless and great for a family or several couples.

We were beyond pleased to find every detail no matter how small had been planned and provided. The owners were more than helpful in helping us with directions to the cottage. We plan on returning to the area and making this cottage our first pick of my places to stay.

Our Retreat at Moonbeam Cottage

We visited Moodbeam Cottage last January. We were charmed before we even got out of our car. The gravel driveway led us up the hill the cottage is built on to what is technically the back door. On entering one is naturally led to the kitchen which is part of a huge open room giving way to the living and dining areas. There are hardwood floors and high ceilings and the cottage is spotlessly clean. The space is uncluttered but warm and inviting with an eclectic mix of furnishings and art that at once invites one in inside to relax and enjoy. Everything one could need to cook is provided. A washer and dryer allow for emergency clothes washing. There are notes provided to answer questions before the questions arise. The living room gives way to a rocking chair porch with rocking chairs. While we were on the porch it felt like we were in a luxury tree house. We bundled up and had coffee and rolls on the porch. Both bedrooms are decorated to an equal standard of ultra comfort and again charm. We hiked, shopped, had lovely lunches and dinners out in Highlands. There was more to do but we ran out of time. We came home renewed and refreshed. It is a wonderful place to be!! I would recommend Moonbeam Cottage to anyone. It was beyond lovely.

We just loved this cottage. It was warm and welcoming, in a great location and felt like we were in our own home. My mother came with us on the visit and the house was perfect, no stairs, walkin shower and lovely porches. Also communication with the owners was so easy. I cannot wait till our next visit to the Highlands, can't image staying anywhere else.

Owner's Response: Moonbeam Cottage is a welcoming retreat after a full day of activities. Highlands is fun for all ages: hiking, canoeing, zip lining under the rainforest canopy, enjoying each other and relaxing at Moonbeam Cottage! Come and relax after playing all day in the cool breezes and fresh mountain air! Grill your favorite dinner and dine alfresco.

dream home away from home

What a great place for a friends reunion, and for the kids. We had a blast hanging out at the moonbeam cottage. The location was close to several falls for a great hike to get some fresh air and soak up the scenery. There was a nature center for the kiddos, and a yummy local grocery to get food for dinner. There were plenty of restaurants in town, but we opted to use the gas stove and outdoor grill at the cabin. Appliances, kitchenware, flatware, they had all that I needed. I especially loved all of the options for lounging about, the front porch rocking chairs were my fav. They even had a child's rocking chair!! It really was quite comfortable and felt like a home away from home (with upgrades:-). Would definitely love to get the family together to go there for getaway. It was clean, well maintained, and I would recommend it to friends and family. Thanks for a great trip!

Waterfalls are the must-sees in Highlands! Hiking in the beautiful rhododendron forests is breathtaking! Fishing or swimming in the creeks and lakes is refreshing. Watching the sunset overlooking Highlands from Sunset Rock is a memorable experience. Walking around a quaint little village with interesting shops and boutiques. Taking a class or exploring and art installation at the Bascom Visual Arts Center is a treat. The restaurants offer from classic hamburgers to quail eggs in truffle oil in varying ambiances...a grocery store setting to a quiet banquette in a 5 star hotel. The recreation center offers hiking, picnicking, tennis, fitness and swimming in the pool for $2...what fun for a youngster!
