Anything outdoors - thats what attracts us to Highlands, Western North Carolina, and the mountains. We travel all over the world seeking out beautiful scenery, hikes, waterfalls, and adventures! Some of our favorite trails are within a few miles of Highlands, NC. Have we found the perfect place for our mountain cottage?

Justin purchased this cottage in 2013

We have been coming to Highlands area for years for the hiking, waterfalls, and adventures. It was only time before we found the perfect cottage for us!

Feels like a real cottage. Close enough to walk yet feels off the beaten path! Great location, location, location, location! Some of our favorite trails and waterfalls are minutes away. Or go canoeing in one of the beautiful nearby lakes, also only minutes away.

EVERYTHING AS EXPECTED -- FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
What a great rental property! This was my first experience using VBRO, and it certainly won't be my last. The house was exactly as described, and everything was very clean and well-maintained. The instructions posted throughout the house were very helpful. The owner was very responsive to questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family.

One note for dog owners: while the property is dog-friendly, you should be aware that there is no yard (which we expected as one wasn't listed). If your dog doesn't mind doing his business on-leash (mine don't) you can safely walk him around the block; traffic is almost non-existent on the road. Fortunately for us there is a dog park about five minutes from the house by car:

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for our long weekend, family reunion. Very well equipped. We had 7 adults and plenty of room. The private entrance downstairs was great for our adult kids. Kitchen had everything that I needed and we entertained quite a bit! The dining room table was just perfect for our pancake breakfast for 15! I would definitely go back. Great time was had by all. It was neat and clean, and just like the pictures. Other family members rented homes in the area, but ours was by far the BEST!

AWESOME STAY FOR THE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
This lovely place has a couple of little quirks, but it is a fantastic and well-appointed house that was perfect for our family getaway. The owners offer exceptionally good communication and are flexible and accommodating.

The location of this house (less than one mile from downtown Highlands) is ideal. We left the car in the driveway and strolled on down the hill for dinner and coffee. Lovely. There are an abundance of awesome hikes within five miles of the cabin, and we enjoyed as many as we could fit into our schedule.

This clean and well-kept house has plenty of cookware, linens, and a huge, lovely (homemade?) table. We cooked most meals in the small but stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the cozy fireplace and made use of the sleek tv and wireless media options as well.

There were only two very minor issues -- one of which we knew about ahead of time. The two downstairs bedrooms are suited for young or older children, except that they are only accessible by an outdoor stairway. This was not a surprise, but we did end up wishing that our young kids (2 & 4) could have gone down there to play by themselves without our help or supervision.

The only other (very minor) issue was that the electric heat was difficult to regulate. It was cold during our December stay (25* F) at night, and we were all either a little too warm or a little too chilly. We never did get it just right. But, the system was certainly operational -- electric heat can just be a little quirky sometimes.

We highly recommend this house for a wide range of guests. It may not be quite as luxurious or palatial as some other properties, but it is a cozy, clean, and well-appointed property that will set a lovely backdrop for your vacation. And for the price, you would be hard-pressed to do any better. If it is available for your desired dates, book this one before it gets away!

SNOW OUTSIDE, WARM AND COZY INDOORS!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the property in Highlands! My girls (ages 15 & 16) were so excited to see the anticipated snow on Wednesday, it was there first time. The home was so warm and cozy and was the perfect place to celebrate Thanksgiving in the Mountains. We loved being so close to town activities, dining and shopping. The only challenge that we had the entire week was manevering the driveway when the snow came, it is rather steep so it took me a few times to get up and out when slippery. The neighbor was so helpful and suggested leaving the car up on the road and using their driveway to turn around, and this worked perfectly until the snow melted. The property owners were attentive and answered an email inquiry within hours of it being sent. We will be back for sure.

I can't say enough amazing things about the Tree House Cottage & the host Justin! My friends and I had a wonderful retreat to this home. Less than a mile from downtown Highlands, NC. If you want to clear your mind and have a relaxing vacation, look no further than the Tree House Cottage. Justin had everything in order when we arrived, let us know how to use the awesome stereo system & we enjoyed the Nintendo Wii after hours! Very great experience and plan to stay here again soon! Thanks again.

LOVELY HOME AND RELIABLE OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
The home is as advertised! Lovely! Our only issue was with Highlands in general because we are extremely mold sensitive. Anything in a basement in Highlands is going to cause problems for people with mold sensitivies so if we stayed here again we would bring air filters for the basement. Normal people will find the home as lovely and functional as advertised and the owners are great to work with!!!!

Owner's Response: thanks for letting us know. it would be better to communicate direct with the owners if there are any issues even if its something that may only effect a select few. we try to make adjustments to accommodate the majority.

We have an advanced dry basement system even though the majority of the basement is above ground. we will look into the system and make any necessary adjustments for future guests.

Please always report any issues, big or small as soon as they are discovered. we pride our selves in running a great vacation rental property and will do everything in our power to create a positive experience for all visitors! we hope you will come back again. if you notify us in advanced, we can provide you with a way to filter the downstairs bedroom areas to better assist your needs!

thanks.
