Scaly Mountain Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

We understand that your pets are part of the family too. We don't charge extra for you to bring them but we do require copies of your dog's most recent vaccinations as well as a recent receipt for flea medication. (Frontline, Advantage, etc.) This is for your safety as well as the safety of our other guests. We have TONS of room for your dog to safely run and we even provide the tennis balls and water dishes!

*Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate cats due to allergies.*

The Butterfly Ranch is a light filled cabin nestled on a quiet lot just twelve minutes from downtown Highlands in Scaly Mountain which is the Atlanta side of Highlands. Located at 3800ft. Highlands is a temperate rain forest and our temperatures are generally mild which makes it a popular retreat from the Atlanta heat. There is ample of room to play outdoor games or just sit and watch the wildlife. We get LOTS of deer on our property and there is great bird watching as well.

There are two 'pick your own' berry farms within walking distance and an honor system fruit and vegetable stand for fresh local produce.

We have provided bocce balls, a croquet set and some cards and other games.

Our goal at The Butterfly Ranch is to provide a spa-like experience in the woods. We have tried to think of everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! We had a nice time. The area is beautiful. You had everything we could have needed at the house. The house was so cozy and very well decorated. We will definitely be back.

Disney World For Dogs!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation here at the Butterfly Ranch. My husband, two dear friends and my dog Ike spent a week here. So wonderful the property was so clean and I spent most of the time freaking out that Ike was going to mess something up in the house but he was the perfect gentleman. The owner suggested a day hike to Hollow Creek falls just a beautiful place two falls on this hike and very remote I think we were the only ones for miles. I highly recommend this place if you are bringing your dog. Thank you Danielle for making this possible and can't wait to come back next fall. JA

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Butterfly Ranch was tranquil and beautiful. It was the perfect home for the two of us and our dog. The house is immaculate but comfortable with all the amenities you would need away from home. It was the perfect place to stay after long hikes and exploring the area. We enjoyed eating on the deck, running our dog in the yard, and relaxing in the living room. We look forward to returning!

Peaceful Retreat in NC Highlands

  • 5 of 5

If you want to rest and recover from the busy day-to-day rush, slow it down at the Butterfly Ranch. Be close to great food and shopping or just grill out on the comfy porch. Time for reading, hiking, and enjoying nature. Watching the deer come in the evening to graze and eat apples was quite the photo op. Amazing what just a weekend stay can do for your peace of mind! Everything about the cabin made it feel warm and relaxing!

I cannot remember ever traveling with our dogs for a vacation where I felt as relaxed and at peace with them roaming the yard as I did here. It was also very impressive to have the great personal attention that Danielle extended to us!!
