About The Owner

I am a retired school teacher from south west Georgia. I purchased my home in Highlands to get a way from the sweltering heat of south west Georgia in the summer. I love Highlands and its cool summer temperatures. The elevation of 4, 118 feet guarantees a much cooler summer than I get in south Georgia.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Highlands

Highlands is a great vacation destination with something for everyone. Highlands is a unique town in that you can be as casual as you want or as formal as you like. Highlands offers small town charm with New York sophistication. The shopkeepers are extremely nice and everyone is very friendly. The shops on main street offer everything from an ice cream cone to furniture to fur coats. The local book store is fantastic.

Darling lil place!

  • 5 of 5

Cute lil place and very easy to talk with owner and arrange key and everything. It's a lil dark when trying to take the dogs out at night but we used flashlights in our phone! Beautiful stars! Quiet area, about 4 lil houses at top of gravel hill. Short drive to town of Highlands and also convenient to get to Cashiers! Very clean and decorated cute! Cozy and comfortable-thank you SO much!

Great Find in Highlands

  • 5 of 5

Finding a cottage in Highlands with central heat and air is unheard of at this price. All the other modern conveniences made our stay in this cottage very, very comfortable. This was our fourth visit to Highlands and we found this cottage to be the best value yet. The location was great for our trips to Highlands and Cashiers. The bed was comfortable and we loved the nice linens. The owner, Judy was very friendly and easy to deal with. We have recommended this great find to all of our friends that love Highlands also.

Just Perfect, Can't Wait to Come Back!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a great find in the Highlands market. It is located very close to town and has everything you need for a great stay. The house has central heat and air and a cozy fireplace with gas logs. I had to do some work over the weekend and was appreciative of having a wifi network. I am very picky about cleanliness and found this home to be spotless. I also loved the fabulous bed linens. We enjoyed our stay so much we are planning to return this summer and also thinking of renting for a month next summer!

Not Impressed - Dangerous

  • 1 of 5

I would have to say that overall I was dissatisfied with my stay.

Not being able to drive up to the cabin, and having to make a few trips to and from my vehicle to haul my luggage, because the snow and ice had not been cleared properly from the driveway, was certainly inconvenient and was dangerous as well. Notably because I slipped and fell twice.

I understand that it snowed the previous day, but it was clear that someone had made feeble attempts at clearing the drive prior to my arrival… and it did not snow the day of my arrival. I contacted the owner the following day who assured me she'd have the person go back out and clear the driveway - never happened.

Secondly, you advertise the place as having WiFi - which you do not really have. Instead, you are attempting to tap into your son’s WiFi access in an adjacent unit. The connection was sporadic at best and most times non-existent… a guest should not have to wander around the unit I rented to try and find the right location to gain WiFi access.

WiFi was a very important aspect of being away as I worked at night and needed to access email / Internet wot work with my colleagues.

I would have provided a 3-star rating, but instead, because of the owner lack of attempt or concern in remedying these issues while I was there warrant only a 1-star rating.

If WiFi is important for your stay... then this is not the place for you.

Owner's Response: Traveler booked the day before he wished to arrive. No correspondence during stay. Email sent like one sent to VRBO when he got home and asked for refund for trip.

High Cotton Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a perfect location between Highlands and Cashiers. It was clean, cozy, and well maintained. Even with the wet, drizzly weather, the foliage and leaves were lovely. The home has lots of windows to enjoy the views. The rooftop seating area was an extra surprise, and hearing the nearby rushing steam was so enjoyable. The owner is quick to respond and pleasant.

We hope to return soon to enjoy High Cotton
