Welcome to Hunter's Lodge Elevation: 3950 FEET

Spectacular, panoramic mountain view from sunrise to sunset. This custom built, luxury home is located on Highlands Mountain. 15 minutes from downtown Highlands. On top of Highlands Mountain. It is one of the the highest homes in the area, placed right next to forest service land for additional privacy and easy access to hiking trails. Maps for hiking trails are available in home.

****view is so expansive that you can see hawks and eagles soaring past the balconies*****

***this home was built by a renowned custom log home builder with handmade, custom features throughout entire home****

The house is fully stocked (towels, linens, soap, toilet tissue, garbage bags, paper towels, cleaning agents, etc.).400-1200 count sheets throughout. Temperpedic master bed. Down comforters throughout home. Thirsty towels throughout. The refrigerator has purified water. A fully stocked gourmet kitchen with mountain views awaits your culinary skills. Please bring charcoal if you plan on using outside grill. Also bring fire logs if you plan on using the outside fire pit. Marshmallow sticks are located next to outdoor fire pit in holder on side of barn. Please extinguish fire after enjoying the fire pit.

The property looks and feels like a 5 star mountain resort. Spend the day hiking on groomed, creekside mountain trails and your evening dining at an award winning restaurant in Highlands. We have run into town to buy supplies only to find ourselves still there 5 hours later exploring the many unique shops and trying a new restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. Coming home to this beautiful estate is priceless. Fireplaces inside and out will thrill you all 4 seasons with the push a a remote control button.

Guestbook comments from the owner
DJ, thanks for the hiking suggestions. You have been so helpful with dining & hiking suggestions. We have never had a home-owner go to such lengths to make sure our stay is delightful. You have gone above & beyond to help make our visit perfect. We appreciate all you have done. We are looking forward to our visit in your lodge. My college roommate, from 42 years ago & her husband are meeting us there. We are excited about our weekend together in the Highlands. Sincerely, Kay

High on the Hog at Hunters Lodge in Highlands

  • 5 of 5
Magnificent 180 degree views. We watched the moon come up over the barn, the sun rise over the mountains and saw spectacular sunsets without having to leave the deck. We loved having total privacy with no signs of habitation in view and the only sounds coming from the birds singing and the mountain stream and falls in the valley below. Yet it's an easy 15-20 minute scenic drive to downtown Highlands through a National Forest along a beautiful mountain trout stream with waterfalls dotting the route. The deep covered porch area on the deck provides protection from elements and its tin roof plays a wonderful tune when it rains. We loved the new infrared outdoor gas grill. The large round outdoor dining table is sturdy and comfortably seats 6, The Kitchen is gourmet and fully stocked with every imaginable top end utensil, appliance and do-dad. The easy to operate indoor and outdoor gas fireplaces take the chill off and add romance. Beds are comfortable and the linens luxurious. Great, large TV's with excellent pictures lots of channels and extras and wireless internet that is simple to access and actually works. This truly is a lodge and is impressive in its stature, design, and furnishings. There are many nice touches like having the game room off kitchen and great room instead of in the basement. We appreciated the good paved roads to the property, the paved driveway and a real manicured lawn with flowers. The large level paved parking area and covered drive through entrance and level walk in are a bonus. None of us had a single bug bite after a week. We played horseshoes and spent most of our time outside on the deck reading, socializing and living high on the hog at Hunters Lodge. We have been coming to the mountains for years renting many beautiful mountain homes but Dj's Hunters Lodge is the best.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we rolled up to the front door of Hunter's Lodge, we knew we were in for a wonderful girl's weekend!

Everything you have seen in the photos is accurately represented....only better. We all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. Every creature comfort was addressed. However, as beautiful and comfortable the house was, we spent the majority of our time out on the back porch. We started in the morning with a cup of coffee and wound up the day looking at the stars.

I can't wait to plan another trip to the Highlands and bring my husband. ***** for sure!!!!!

Blissful

  • 5 of 5
While the rest of the southeast was suffering high temperatures and oppressive humidity, we were enjoying absolutely comfortable temperatures at 4000+ elevation. Sitting on the porch of Hunters Lodge became our favorite venue during our stay.

I highly recommend staying at this beautiful mountain home if your travels take you to the Highlands. It has everything you might possibly desire at your home away from home! I can't wait to enjoy Hunter's Lodge again soon!!!

Thank you for the hospitality, D.J.:-)

We joined our friends from Georgia for a fabulous a 4 night stay at Hunters Lodge. Days were spent hiking at the Botanical Gardens and Whiteside Mountain (read about Spearfinger before you go). Nearby Dryfalls is a must see, not sure why they call it dry!? We visited nearby Cashiers just to visit High Hampton Inn and their lake. Fabulous dinner one night at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands. Lunch twice at Wild Thyme. We cooked all nights except one at Hunters Lodge and had dinner on the deck overlooking the fabulous Smokey Mountains. The kitchen was way beyond well stocked with anything you needed. There is a resident bunny that you will most likely see at Hunters Lodge. I can go on and on but I won't! Nothing bad to say about this rental except we wish this house was closer to Charleston, SC.

Chasing Waterfalls

  • 5 of 5
The property was secluded yet close to everything. We favor views and sitting outside above all else when renting places. This one had the ultimate and then some. A large. flat paved area for games and the outdoor gas fireplace was my favorite at night. The star gazing was great and the interior of the lodge is very unique and cozy. The kitchen is stocked like a kitchen that's lived in, which was very nice and convenient. I don't like having to pack salt,pepper, seasonings etc.The game room off the kitchen is the key to use! Everyone loved the ping pong. Overall a great weekend and close drive to many awesome waterfalls!

Did Not Disappoint!

  • 5 of 5
I take my family to the mountains every summer. We have stayed in various locations in NC. We returned to the Highlands area as we stayed in the area last year and we really loved all it had to offer. However, we were not happy with the cabin we stayed in last year. I spent a significant amount of time searching for a sizable cabin that was pet friendly with a beautiful view and cook's kitchen. This cabin did not disappoint! My entire family loved the secluded location, the spaciousness of the cabin, the cozy decor and spending mornings and evenings on the expansive porch gazing at the beautiful view of the mountains. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, watching fireflys on the porch in the evening, cooking family dinners in the stocked kitchen and playing games in the game room each night. The cabin had something for everyone in my family from 10 to 68 yrs old. Thank you for making this year's trip extra special. We will be booking a longer stay next year!
