About Tom Ellicott

We are crazy about Highlands and have owned a cabin there since 1998.

Tom Ellicott purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Tom Ellicott chose Highlands

We love the privacy of this cabin. It's the last home in the community and it's the only one with a creek plus a great view. We bought it new and added many custom finishes. It's just a special cabin, you'll see.

What makes this cabin unique

There is nothing like Highlands! The restaurant scene is dynamic, the hiking and waterfalls and cool weather make it very special. Shoot us an email for our restaurant guide. All our guests receive one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just arrived reluctantly back home in Miami after a lovely two weeks + in Highlands at the Creekside Cabin. What a wonderful place, thank you!

I have to say that we have rented many places over the years and this is one we would definitely rent again. Not only was the location wonderful but it was incredibly well appointed and maintained house. It was truly ideal.

Thank you for providing such a great home for our mountain get away.

Grand Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time with our family, and this home fit our needs perfectly! The furnishings were lovely, and at the same time, cozy and comfortable. The location was perfectly situated between Highlands and Cashiers (closer to Highlands). Our kids loved the stream that flowed by the home, and the neighborhood was quiet and relaxing. We were so pleased with our first-time rental of this property, and we hope to make plans to return soon!

Gorgeous getaway in beautiful Highlands

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin, better than we expected from the description. It had everything you could possibly need (from a hair dryer to a full range of dishes and even board games and a TiVo.)

The creek outside was extremely relaxing from the porch, which was perfectly configured for lounging with an outdoor couch and dining area. We also enjoyed the hot tub, and viewing the stars from a place like this will take your breath away.

Very convenient to Main St. in Highlands, including a grocery store and anything else you could want (including a neat dog park.)

It wasn't hard to find, but the steep driveway was a little scary the first time, but our car handled it perfectly. It actually added to the charm as it helped nestle the house into the surroundings a bit more.

We'll be back!

The home was even more beautiful than the pictures. We had everything we needed to cook meals while sitting by the beautiful fire. We easily got to Highlands and Cashiers from the house. Would recommend to anyone and plan on returning sometime. Thank you for sharing your amazing mountain getaway!!
