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.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!

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!

INCREDIBLE SETTING AND BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure of joining five other couples to spend four glorious day in the mountains in this fabulous house. It could not be a more perfect venue for great friends to spend time together and enjoy the area's hiking, shopping and restaurants. Each couple had privacy in their room with en suite bath, and the gathering rooms were perfect for conversation and fun. We brought all of our own meals knowing that dinner each night with 12 people would be challenging, and we found the kitchen to be a chef's dream! Anyway, after a day of hiking and lunch in a charming cafe, who would want to leave this beautiful place? Few luxury hotels could offer more scrumptious accommodations- from the linens and well-appointed bathrooms to the cozy fireplaces, pool and ping pong tables, and incredible views enjoyed from rocking chairs on the porch. The house could be a designer show house. Every detail in design and decor was thoughtfully planned, yet it had the warmth and welcoming feel of a good friend's home. The owner offered it up as such, even making spices and condiments in the kitchen available to us if needed. We loved this place, and I hope to return one day. I've heard it said that walking into a well appointed and beautiful home is like receiving a warm hug. This house was that and more. Thank you for sharing it with us and our dear friends!

PERFECT WEDDING SPOT - HAPPY BRIDE:)

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!

FANTASTIC FAMILY GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
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.
