Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 which includes sleeper/sofa in living ro)

Casa Sueños (House of Dreams) is a magical escape into a Fairy Tale setting. This cedar log home is surrounded by woods.

Every morning birds will sing you wake up songs. Gorgeous wood peckers can be seen from the wrap-around deck. The sun rises through the trees into the master bedroom.

At night, the stars shine through the sky light. There is no more romantic setting... yet it's great to share with lots of family and friends as well.

Casa is just 10 minutes from the beautiful Main St. in Highlands, yet it's cozy and tucked away in the woods. You will absolutely love it and return often. Guaranteed!

About Karl Ellins

My friend Patricia San Pedro and and I share this piece of heaven that we call Casa Sueños. Patricia and I were wandering down Main Street in Highlands and got curious about what the area had to offer. We walked into a realtor and asked what they had in mountain log cabins with fireplaces. Casa Sueños was the first property they showed us and it was love at first sight. We didn't plan to buy but we left the proud owners and have been loving it ever since. My daughter Sylvia, shown next to her very proud dad, has grown up with many great trips to the cabin with the beauty and charm that is Highlands.

Karl Ellins purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Karl Ellins chose Highlands

Getting up to the cabin is quick and easy for us with a 2 hour flight into Atlanta from Miami and then an easy drive to Highlands. As easy as it is to get to it seems a million miles away once you get there.

What makes this cabin unique

We have the best of both worlds with Main Street less than 10 minutes away and the solitude of the cabin. Highlands is a great little town with lots to offer including great restaurants, shopping, art, culture, all with a friendly atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highlights:

-walked into a very clean, fully stocked cozy cabin

-5 hours of white, powdery snow fell during which our family had a blast throwing snowballs and relaxing in the hot tub

-Glen Falls was spectacular! Our family enjoyed it right before it began to rain!!

-Whiteside Mountain day after it snowed was a winter wonderland with a breathtaking view!

-At Mountain Fresh Grocery we loved the freshly made donuts and gourmet burgers

-the Bear theme and all the decorative accents in the cabin were adorable!!!

Truly a Casa de Sueños!!!

Thank you Dr. Ellins and Melanie! You are a blessing to a family that really needed a heavenly vacation!!!!

God bless you!!!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Suenos was so clean, comfortable, and inviting! We felt at home and enjoyed our stay. We have stayed in many cabins and condos, and this was by far the best one. Any questions I had concerning the location, etc, were quickly answered by the owner. We had no problems or concerns. If we ever get back to Highlands, we will rent again!!

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is everything that is written about it & more. The cabin is as described and was one of the most well equipped cabins we have ever stayed in. While we were not able to use several of the cabins features(hot tub or grill) due to horrible weather we made the best of it by enjoying the wonderful porch swing and large covered porch for listening to the rain. If your looking for a private place close to nice places to eat & shop this cabin & Highlands NC is the place.

Regards,

Ken & Claudia Woodruff

It was exactly as advertised. Clean, well stocked, quiet, and peaceful. 5 min to highlands.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a family of 6 or a couple. Very inviting decor, hot tub and forest setting. Quiet and peaceful while not lacking any modern amenities. If our travels bring us back to this region we'll definitely look for this cabin in the woods.

Amazing stay at a private cabin in Highlands!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous setting & beautifully maintained property in a perfect mountain town! We loved our stay and highly recommend the house. We loved the mossy stairs to the firepit and amazing sounds of the forest at night. Thank you very much Karl for your hospitality!

Great stay thanks to great property!

  • 5 of 5

Really appreciated cada sueños! It was great for the two families in our party. We had a ball cooking, hanging out in the porch (and in the hot tub), and having long chats in the warm and cozy living area. Beautiful forrest views from every room. Close enough to Highlands to go frequently. Thanks for a great stay.
