Our family rented "The Hangout" for a long weekend to watch the solar eclipse. We had an unbelievable time. The house is big enough for everyone to have their own space, yet the common areas are also large enough for everyone to be comfortable for family activities. The best part of the house, of course, is the view and large outdoor decks. The view from the home is truly incredible and a great place to watch magnificent sunsets over the mountains. The home is fully equipped with everything you need. The caretaker, Steve Peet, was a perfect host attending to our every need and making sure our stay was perfect. As others have noted, I didn't want to leave! I highly recommend this property! You won't be disappointed!

Then "Hangout" is everything you want in a mountain home

All I can say is wow. The vista's are awesome. They did a great job of creating spaces for all age brackets. Sipping coffee as the morning sun appears above the horizon, formal Dinner, and casual dining, common space. Truly a wonderful experience.

Beautiful property with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family, 11 people in total, that includes teens and college age young adults, and we rented The Hangout. We could not have been more pleased! There was something for everyone to do at the home, from the game room that had the ping pong and pool tables, to relaxing and enjoying the amazing view. We enjoyed the great room and the gas fireplace, which was great for relaxing in the evening or early in the cool morning. The property manager, Steve, made sure that everything was ready for our arrival and we couldn't have been more pleased. The only negative for us was that we had to leave too soon. We are hoping to come back to The Hangout when we can stay for a longer period of time.

The. Best. View. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Four couples spent 4 days together in this exceptional home on the top of Whiteside Mountain just minutes from downtown Highlands and Cashiers crossroads. The views are unparalleled in my experience and the house is not too shabby either! With lots of levels and comfortable seating there were more areas to hang out than we could even find time to use -- indoors and out. The kitchen is well equipped and user friendly. Ping pong and pool tables, big screen TV and the best Mah Jongg table we've ever seen! Plenty of room in the drive for all our cars. Very helpful property agent. We plan to go back annually.
