Mirror Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Highlands Hideaway is the absolute perfect if you are looking to be in town! Main Street shopping, Civic Center, Mirror Lake, Bascom, Old Edwards Inn.....it's all right there.

Bringing the family and friends…so do we. This home is perfect with two bedrooms down stairs and two bedrooms upstairs. When it is time to go to bed, you have your privacy with the split plan. King bed in master and two twins in the second bedroom upstairs. A queen bed with private half bath and a two twin bedroom downstairs. Yes, the master has a TV….but your in the mountains, turn it off.

Do you like too cook…how about doing it in a stainless steel kitchen with granite. I know your coming to the mountains, but with this home you can enjoy the amenities while still experiencing the old highlands charm. We kept the wood floors, the mahogany cabinets and the wormy chestnut paneled walls. The plumbing, electrical, appliances and granite are all new, but you will still know you are in the mountains.

Do you like are large living space? There is plenty of room in this home. Our living room has plenty of seating and even room for a game table, perfect for gatherings by the wood burning fireplace. Yes there is a TV with cable just incase you have a rainy day during your stay.

Outside? There is a garage and two driveways incase you have guest that need parking. There is also a playhouse out back for our girls, located next to the campfire pit. There is even a horse hitching post if you bring one with you!

The view? You are surrounded by natural beauty. The property is lined with rhododendron for privacy, when you look out the front or the back or sit on one of the porches, you are surrounded by green. Totally Beautiful.

Our past guest have been wedding parties, family reunion guest, retirement gatherings, large families and couples just on a romantic getaway.

You can rent with the rental company or you can save with the owners, just send us an email.

With this location you can't go wrong.

About The Owner

Mountain and Beach family who currently live in Tuscaloosa Alabama because that is where the road took us. We have traveled to various places in the Smokey Mountains and have found the Highlands to be our favorite. This will be where we choose to live and play with grand kids one day.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Highlands

This is a four bedroom property that has been visited by many large families, wedding parties, and even honeymooners wanting a mountain retreat. The home is a split living plan so it accommodates two families nicely and allows for common areas in the kitchen and great room. It is also great to put the kids upstairs and leave the adults downstairs to continue the games and fun that can only be experienced in the mountains. This home has all new amenities but kept a lot of the old highlands charms. So, it's cozy and comfortable but current and up to date. The outside is important in the mountains. You can drive or walk to everything that is awesome in Highlands. There is a fire pit area outside and even a play house for the kids. Go to one end of the street and feed the ducks or to the other end and take the green way to the Bascom or Main Street. The civic center is right there too! There is non covered deck to see the stars, and a covered deck to enjoy when it is raining. PERFECT!

What makes this house unique

Walk to town, drive to town, on a city street, not a dirt road. Close to water, close to town, close to civic center, close to greenway, close to bascom, close to old edwards....did we mention 4 bedrooms, fire pit, play house, and plenty of parking for the large family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

PERFECT FALL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

We love the fireplace inside, we love the fire pit outside. We fed the ducks on mirror lake, we walked to an arts event at the Bascom. What a great time. We will be back to the Highlands for sure!

Great place and town!

  • 5 of 5

We had a squirrel visit us every morning on the front porch! He likes peanuts! We came to be in nature, and this place was in the middle of everything but as you can tell from our squirrel friend, we felt like we were surrounded by nature. The leaves were changing and it was beautiful. As for the house, it was perfect for us and all our kids. We went up to the master and the kids did their things downstairs. We like that we could get away from them and layout allowed us all to have our space. It's old but new.....awesome!

coming back in fall

  • 5 of 5

I will be back for fall, I can't imagine what the area will look like when the leaves are changing. The owner gave me a whole bunch of suggestions for hiking and dinner. Loved it all. We were here for a wedding....our friends stayed at a property that cost more per night then our entire stay!

Found it!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our return vacation! Perfect size, natural setting, close to town. We could walk everywhere but enjoyed walking around the area of this house. You are close, but you feel like you are away from everything too. It was perfect to go to town to get wine and then come back to sit by the fire pit. LOVED IT! Found our return vacation.
