Our family lives in Florida without seasons and with plenty of summer heat and humidity. The Highlands house has been in the family for 4 generations and is really special to all of us. We very much enjoy the cool weather in the summer and the wonderful change of seasons in the fall. Guests usually want to come back every year. This mountain house will make your visit a very pleasant experience.
DIANA purchased this house in 1950
This house is on Lake Sequoyah offering fishing and boating. Canoes are available for rent at a nearby restaurant. Hiking is right in the neighborhood or on the local trails around Highlands.
The shopping in downtown Highlands, fresh fruit and vegetable available in Dillard, mountain hiking, photographing waterfalls and mountain river vistas on the Cullasaja River between Highlands and Franklin hwy 64 are some of the things that we love about the area. Kids like the wild life museum in Highlands, exploring for gems in Franklin and easy hikes up Sunset mountain in downtown Highlands.
We absolutely loved this house. I concur with what others have written, the pictures do not do the house justice. It is so much roomier than the pictures display. We enjoyed our time spent in Highlands a well as Franklin. We drove through Cashiers on the way home and we wish that we had spent a day there as well. There is only 1 shower, which was a bit small - but taking a bath can be quite fun! The only negaive thing that I can write is that there is not an area around the house for the dog to run and play. I will most definitely be back.
My husband, two grown sons and I enjoyed our stay in Diana's house. The rooms are much larger than the pictures indicate. The living area is very open, and the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable. The house was extremely clean and the kitchen well-stocked. We loved being across from the lake as we brought our kayaks and were able to easily put them in. We are already looking forward to our next stay here.
Everything about this rental surpassed all expectations. It was ideally located, roomier than pictures were able to convey, well equipped and will definitely return. Owners went out of their way to accommodate any request.
I just wanted to let you know that your home in the Highlands was very nice and met all of our needs. It was very close to all of the wedding venues and to town. It was also exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were very happy with the arrangements. I am pretty sure we will be heading up that way again and we will see if your home is available first.
This mountain retreat is choice! It is clean, spacious, and filled with plenty if amenities one can need away from home. Great for a family that wants to spend time together. Everything one needs is close by in Highlands or Cashiers. We visited waterfalls, picnicked, hiked, white water rafting, listened to music, read books, played games, etc. There is a overwhelming waterfall (man made from the lake not 900 feet from the cabin) that I recommend to see and a great picture place. You can hear if from the cabin. Highly recommend.
I've rented mountian homes in NC, TN and GA for years, and this place may be my favorite. I've never felt more at home in a place that I didn't own. It was difficult to leave as I became very attached to it.
This is a wonderful home in a natural setting with an ideal location. This property has a sense of history and authenticity that simply doesn't exist in newer "cabins" that have been built for use as rentals. Take a kayak or canoe and enjoy the serenity of Lake Sequoyah. The magic of Highlands lies in the fact that it is at 4,100 ft. elevation yet you have everything you need without traversing typically treacherous mountain roads. I've kissed the ground after reaching some of the homes I've rented in the mountains, but you won't have that issue here.
The owner of this property is a pleasure to deal with, and this home is an excellent value compared to other homes that I've rented in Highlands. I left this house relaxed and recharged, and it truly exceeded my expectations in most every regard.
Our favorite restaurant is downtown at the grocery store-Mountain Fresh. They are open for breakfast and lunch. Be sure to get lunch there--the burgers and homemade soups are the best in town. They also have take out for dinner if you call ahead.
