BOWERY LODGE IN HIGHLANDS - LUXURY MOUNTAIN RETREAT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 8 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16

Dear travelers,

Thanks so much for checking out our property! Please read the 'owner story' section for information on how to make an inquiry. My apologies, but I do not reply to inquiries that don't follow our guidelines, or are above our maximum number of guests or children.

This lovely Highlands mountain home is nestled between Whiteside and Black Rock, perched high above a valley with sweeping easterly views of the Smokies. The naturally landscaped lot is situated on a dead-end road, with plenty off-street parking for 8 cars (no street parking), a short walking trail with rope swing, and a darling playhouse for the kids.

Designed for large groups, the home's multi-levels offer many options for gathering together, and cozy spaces to retreat to for quiet time. Watch the sunrise or the fog roll in from multi-levels of decks and balconies, or while soaking in the hot tub with the gas fireplace blazing.

Seven bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Lower king bedroom uses spa bath. Six bedrooms on view side. Most have sitting areas and fireplaces.

You probably won't want to leave the property...but if you must, Highlands is 3 miles away. Stroll along quaint Main Street for some shopping and dining; and stop by the Highland Hiker for outdoor gear and great local advice on what to do in the area. Hiking, fishing, golf, swimming holes.

PLEASE NOTE: Rates are as posted, and do not include tax or cleaning fee. Please use the 'instant quote' feature to get an idea of your total cost. Rates and are for up to 16 guests. Children are welcome, but we allow a maximum of 5 and consider ages to determine whether our house is a good fit for your group.

  • limited accessibility

Hello! My family completed our special mountain home in 1999, continue to make improvements and additions as our family grows. We still use it often ourselves, and have enjoyed sharing it with other families as a vacation rental since 2010. We're honored and blessed that so many choose to return over and over again!

I'm the oldest 'kid', and manage bookings for my family from my home in Seattle, WA. I've chosen not to list my phone number after a few too many pushy marketers, as well as some early morning calls due to the time difference; but I do provide it to serious inquirers and welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our special place.

TO MAKE AN INQUIRY:

Because of some suspicious inquiries and based on HomeAway's security guidelines (read more in the Security Center), I now only respond to inquiries containing the following information:

- specific dates (these can be changed)

- phone number with a good time to call you

- some information about your group: age range, number of adults and children, specific ages of children, where you're coming from, and the reason for your visit (i.e. family reunion, wedding, golf retreat, etc.).

- what drew you to our place (just a quick detail so I know you're a real person!)

- please also review rates and minimum stay requirements before inquiring. While we do offer discounted rates and shorter stays to our returning guests, rates and minimum stay requirements are as posted for first-timers, and I don't respond to inquiries asking for exceptions.

Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you!

- Mead

Perfect Wedding Spot - Happy Bride:)

June of 2012 we were married in this amazing house. We had 16 people attend and we all stayed together for the weekend. Plenty of room for everybody to have there own personal space. The decks and views are breathtaking.
I would recommend this property to anyone.

If you are thinking of a quaint mountain wedding this is your spot.

Would be happy to show pictures and a list of vendors that helped make our day so special. The owners made everything so easy!

Special Mountain Home in Highlands!

My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience at this mountain home in Highlands, NC. We got married at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn on 7/20/12. The house was perfect for housing our entire wedding party. The size and decor of the home is very impressive, and the views are absolutely breathtaking. The home was clean and well maintained. Although we were without DirecTV, WiFi, and a functional oven due to lightning striking the house a few days before our visit, we still had a wonderful time. The owner was great in notifying us about this issue before we arrived and making prompt arrangements to get everything fixed. We loved this house and will always remember it fondly. We hope to return in the future!

February Weekend

What a special time our family had in your Highlands home! Our small family doesn’t get together very often, and all the space and conveniences fit our needs very well. We sat in the hot tub (sometimes with ice in our hair), sat by the fire, read stories, did puzzles, ate steak and salmon off the grill, stared at sunrises, slept late, played pool, drank some fine wine, and did some modest hiking. Thanks for your generosity and such a wonderful retreat. All 12 of us thank you!

Fantastic Family Get Away

We have rented this house two years in a row during the Thanksgiving holiday. i can't tell you how perfect it is. it is the only place we have ever rented twice if that helps. This year we were 14 and we all still had more than enough room. the kitchen has ample space and cooking supplies , great knives, a coffee maker that could keep up with even us , games and puzzles to entertian all of us , pool, ping pong , you name it , it is there. With any luck we will be returning soon for my wife's 50th birthday.
The house is very well kept, convenient to town and there are opportunities to walk , run and play right outside the door. There was also someone available in the event of any issues which is always nice to have. My only reluctance in recommending this home is that i do not want to share.

New Year's weekend 2012

(excerpt from letter 1/2/2012)
Dear Mead and all the B. family,

We had the most memorable New Years weekend!!!!!!! I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate you allowing us to enjoy your home in Highlands. We felt as if we were visiting in the home of dear friends. We were greeted by Tom who is so easy, knowledgeable, helpful and interested.
The sunrises were spectacular, the hot tub relaxing, the fireplaces phenomenal, the spaces just perfect for all of us. The kids played endlessly in the play house, the guys played pool, all of us played beer pong.
We celebrated a late Christmas with gifts under the tree and we enjoyed all the holiday goodies you left us in the basket. Thanks so much! The New Years decorations were so thoughtful.
I could rave on and on. We felt so lucky to be together in such a magnificent setting. We spoke often about how wonderful your family must be as evidenced by all the fun family photos and all the kind things Tom had to say etc.
Thanks for all your help in arranging everything and communicating with all of us to make this weekend possible. Please pass our comments along to your family and anyone else on VRBO (though I hate to tell anyone about how fabulous it is). We would definitely like to return again if possible.

It is with many wonderful memories that I close this note and once again say THANK YOU ALL!!!

Susan T. and all the T. Family
