Why Trip Taylor chose Cashiers Area

The Highlands area is filled with National Forests, hiking trails, waterfalls and fabulous views. It offers a real opportunity to commune with nature- it is common to see wild turkey, deer and an occasional bobcat!

What makes this house unique

The home is on a private paved road that doubles as a fantastic nature walk. There are trails on the property and natural rock formations just yards away from the house. Feel free to enjoy hiking to natural waterfalls in our development. Downtown Highlands is a short drive with beautiful scenic overlooks along the way. In Highlands enjoy upscale shopping in non-chain stores and outstanding cuisine in world-class restaurants. Visit Highlands Wine and Cheese shop and the owner will give you discounts on cult cabernets and artisan cheeses!

You just won't believe how beautiful this property is until you visit

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for this property looks a little old and outdated, so when we arrived we were amazed at how clean and updated the property actually is, we were instantly charmed away. We were a party of four families with young children and the house was spacious enough to host all of us. The weekend was a little windy so we didn't get to enjoy the deck much but the view was spectacular, we were able to enjoy the sunset in the dining room or living room. The kids had so much fun with so much space in the house, the Dads really enjoyed the screened porch, and the Moms just loved the kitchen, with top notch appliances and built-in griddles and stuff, preparing meals was definitely more pleasurable :). This was the first time we rent from HomeAway, Tripp was extremely helpful and patient throughout this process. Thank you for sharing your house with us, we would definitely recommend to other friends!

Great mountain home

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful with large deck overlooking a large valley and mountain. Large open floor plan kitchen with adjacent outdoor screened area with gas fireplace. We enjoyed the deck in the evenings and a glass of wine and no mosquitos. Cooked on the outdoor grill 2 nights and it worked great. Really enjoyed the large built on griddle in the kitchen, made making breakfast for 10 easy!

Fabulous Fall Trip

  • 5 of 5

There is a group of our friends that take an annual trip to the mountains. The group has grown to 6 couples. We had a wonderful weekend. The house was great and well suited for large groups. The table was large and comfortably accommodated all 12 of us so that we could eat together. The house is spacious and you never feel crowded. It is well decorated, the large deck is nice with a beautiful view of the mountains. We enjoyed everything about the house. The fire on the screen porch, the deck, the large living room with a wonderful fireplace and the pool table downstairs. The location is perfect with things to do. You will never get tired of the view, the town of Highlands is quaint and lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy. Trip, thank you for sharing your home with us. We are already planning to come back next year!!!
