About Justin

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

Why Justin chose Highlands

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Fun and fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Bear and it lands with another A+ rating! It has everything one needs to feel extremely comfortable, is close to town, and is exceptionally clean. Whether you're indoors listening to music on the AirPlay or having morning coffee in the screened back porch, you'll always have a great time. Thanks for the wonderful memories...

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great getaway to Highlands, NC the weekend of April 10th at the Tree House Cottage. It was the perfect spot for us and very quiet and relaxing. We ended up walking into town both nights b/c it was so close and great weather. The cottage was very clean, had super comfy beds, had all of the amenities you would need, and the owners were very responsive.

Two notes: The downstairs bedrooms (two bedrooms and one bath) is only accessible from the outside. The driveway is steep and small. It was challenging with our small SUV when we first arrived; however after we figured out the best way to get in, we did fine.

"Season" doesn't start until the end of May until the end of the year. Because we went in mid-April, several restaurants/stores had limited hours and the town basically shuts down by 10pm. But, that is exactly what we wanted b/c there weren't people everywhere!

Highlights: Dry Falls waterfall and our hike to the top of Whiteside Mountain. The owners have wonderful notes for activities, restaurants, hikes, etc they send you before arrival.

We will definitely be back and will absolutely stay at Treehouse Cottage again!

Can't wait to stay here again. Amazing Views throughout this house!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two kids. What a beautiful house with amazing views. It was more than what we expected. We can't wait to stay here again. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for an immaculate, cozy house with amazing views from all windows. The beds were so comfortable and it was nice it had a washer and dryer. The fireplace was awesome too!!

Fantastic house within walking distance of downtown

  • 5 of 5

I had an excellent time here, a perfect weekend getaway. The house itself is very comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and a lot of natural light. It feels like you are visiting a cool relative. While it's very easy to relax in this home, I also recommend that you get outside a bit. Highlands is a fun community with multiple restaurants and things to do, and it's a short walk from this beautiful house. There are several nearby parks/trails for hiking/exploring, waterfalls, country clubs, plus other adjacent communities like Cashiers.

Another Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely Thanksgiving! This was our second year renting this home and would highly recommend it for a visit to Highlands. The cottage is cozy and so close to town that you can stroll down to shop or have dinner. We also love the neighbors next door who are not only very friendly, they also offered us firewood if we needed it. All in all, just a wonderful stay.
