About Beth Strickland

We are in our late fifties and enjoy coming to Highlands.We manage our vacation properties and try to keep them as we would like them to be when we are the guest.We grew up in Gainesville,Ga and Athens,Ga.

Beth Strickland purchased this house in 2004

Why Beth Strickland chose Highlands

This cottage was built in the early nineties and it is not as old as some we looked at purchasing.We love the close proximity to town,just over a mile to Main St. The Creek just off the sunroom is very soothing to listen to while enjoying a good book or a meal. The cottage sits on just over an acre so you feel private but close lot town.

What makes this house unique

New HVAC system in July 2012. Open Kitchen to Living room and sunroom.WIFI. Very close to town,but private also!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place is just wonderful so much so that we tried to rent it again. No surprise to us, it was already rented. The sunroom is a great place to relax. We opened the windows and listened to the mountain stream. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is a full size washer and dryer as well. The owner is great to work with in getting everything ready for your visit. If you are looking for a great place in Highlands, look no further. I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much as my family and I did.

Wonderful Cottage; Very Nice; Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
The size, location, and layout of this cottage was perfect for my wife & me. So many of the VBRO cottages in this region are way to large for just 2-4 people. This one had it right. The owner, Beth Strickland, was very helpful and immediately responded to all of our e-mails and questions. She went out of her way to be accommodating to us and definitely exceeded our expectations.

The cottage is in great shape and very clean. Appliances and electronics are new and in great condition. All of the furniture is clean and comfortable. The back deck is well furnished and overlooks a running creek. The cottage has a secluded feeling by itself in the woods, but is actually close to town and Main Street. Beth has the latest Highlands travel magazines and the Highlands Hiker guide book to trails and waterfalls. This was great help in planning our outdoor activities. She also has information for local restaurants that made it easy to determine where to eat.

And one of our favorite features is the wood burning fireplace. It is centrally located and the owner offers an abundance of firewood. There is simply no comparison between a gas fireplace and a wood burning fireplace. This wood burning one makes a difference on cold nights.

We will return again.

Perfect Christmas Present

  • 5 of 5
We gave our daughter and son-in-law a vacation to the Highlands for Christmas and even went with them! This cabin is in the perfect location so close to town! They had all the wood, etc. ready for a fire and the cabin was decorated beautifully for Christmas! There was a great book on hikes and falls in the area. It was the perfect vacation and we will return!

Eveything we hoped for and more.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several different cottages and cabins in Highlands over the last few years. That is all behind us, we will return to this wonderful cottage every time. We were so very much at home here, we absolutely hated to leave. We were snowed in a couple days and didn't even mind. The cottage was so well appointed, we had everything we needed. Perfectly located just a short drive to town. Such a quiet and peaceful setting. The owner was so very gracious. I feel we've made a friend. Consider yourself blessed if you are fortunate enough to stay here.

Beautiful Secluded Cottage in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful cottage close to town. This cottage is secluded with lots of privacy and has a gorgeous view of the trees from the sunroom. Excellent woodburning fireplace with a large flat-screen TV in the living area. The kitchen is well stocked and any type meal can easily be prepared. There is a computer desk in the sunroom with internet access which we enjoyed. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of quality sheets and blankets. The road in front of the cottage has very little traffic and was an excellent area to walk our small dog. It was nice having a keypad lock on the front door so we didn't have to keep up with keys. We drove to town in a couple of minutes and easily found parking. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Highlands.

Great cottage in the woods with a great owner

  • 5 of 5
Very nice, cozy cottage. We brought our two kids and two dogs, which from speaking with the owner, is a bit unusual (I think mostly older couples typically rent the cottage). Nevertheless, all of us were happy with the cottage as it fit our needs perfectly. It is in a private setting on a windy road, surrounded by woods. Very peaceful. The owner was very helpful and even gave us the contact information for a good realtor. The cottage is well kept, modern, and comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to book again!
