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! Close to Dusty's.

5 Star Cozy Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect mountain retreat nestled in the woods yet close to town. Beautifully and comfortably decorated and the owner was so accommodating. Our grandchildren enjoyed walking along the creek and playing games at the dining room table. Grandpa enjoyed reading in the Sun room. We also found a hiking trail close by and many terrific restaurants (Ugly Dog; Meritage; Wild Thyme; Mountain Fresh Grocery & Wine Market) and shops . This was our second time to stay here and we definitely would recommend a visit to this home.

Cottage with personality and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage Feb. 2015. It is filled with charm and comfort. We loved the stone fireplace, beamed ceilings and sunporch overlooking the creek.

The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen has all you need and the oversized washer and dryer are exceptional.

The owner, Beth, is a delight to work with. Very helpful suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable and unusually attentive in checking that we were having a good time and had everything we needed.

It snowed one of the days we were staying and it was lovely to sit on the sunporch with a well stocked library and be completely cozy and relaxed as we watched with quiet wonder the lovely sight just beyond the window.

We can definitely recommend this cottage for a lovely home away from home!

Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was clean and neat with everything you will need. A well stocked kitchen. Large, soft bath towels, and comfortable beds. There are books and magazines to read. TV's in bedrooms and family room. It is on a quiet street which provides a nice hike right outside the front door. It is close to town. Only a 20 min. drive to a public golf course, Sky Valley. Shopping, hiking trails, waterfalls. So much to do. I enjoyed shopping at Smitten, featuring, local artist's work and Art Glass Creations, featuring fused glass. The Bascom Art Center is a free museum. The Nature Center was an easy hike, Whiteside Mountain was a hike that was fairly easy with beautiful views. Sept. in Highlands is a time with fewer crowds. No waits at restaurants and parking places available. This home provided a relaxing place to rest from the daily activities. So quiet and the night sky is beautiful.

Weekend wedding in the Highlands, NC

  • 5 of 5

We attended a wedding in the Highlands and this cottage was perfect! We were close to all the venues. It is has wonderful mountain feel and was the perfect getaway after the events to just relax and enjoy the patio deck and listen to the water streaming from the creek. The cottage is very spacious and has everything you could want or need. The owners were very accommodating. If you are planning a trip to the Highlands this is a great place!

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.
