Highlands Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Fantastic family vacation home located in Highlands

Fantastic family vacation venue, (or perfect for three couples) who desire a real 'mountain cabin on a lake' experience! Located in the popular, historic resort town of Highlands, North Carolina, at a cool elevation of over 4,000 feet. Nestled on a quiet finger of Lake Sequoyah, you can canoe to 'On the Verandah' fine dining restaurant faster than you can drive! Just a short hike to beautiful Bridal Veil Waterfalls. Living room has vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling wood burning stone fireplace, log walls, lovely wood floors, cable TV/ DVD, stereo, Wi-Fi, comfy leather furniture and delightful rustic antique decor. Upper level features Master bedroom (king, TV) with private bath, and a sleeping loft with convertible bed (full) and twin futons. First floor bedroom has queen size bed, and adjacent full bath. Lower level features cozy queen bed /sitting room, and private bath, with serene views of lake. Dining room seats 8, or dine on the 10 x 40 foot covered porch with grill, ideal for any weather, hummingbird viewing and watching canoers or mallard ducks paddle by! Fun fishing for bass or bream from private dock or gheenoe (flat bottom canoe). Five minute drive to town for fabulous restaurants, golf courses, and shops. Delightful 'small town' feel with upscale activities nearby (live theater, concerts, art galleries) as well as trout ponds, fly fishing, hiking trails, and waterfalls.......that is, if you can pull yourself away from the comfy seating and tranquility on the covered porch! No smoking, no A/C, but ceiling fans and cool breezes. Pet may be ok with owner approval, and $100.00 pet fee. Washer/Dryer and Free domestic long distance phone service. Thanksgiving through New Years available at $1800.00 per week or $325.00 per night, to cover winter fuel charge.

Some things to consider

  • 3 of 5

The house itself is lovely. The setting is perfect. The kitchen is nicely redone and there were nice pots and pans to use. We stayed for a week and enjoyed ourselves.

A few things to consider that may or may not be an issue for you but should be addressed are: there were spider webs hanging on the chandeliers above the kitchen table. Not very inviting. The fireplace was hard to keep lit, not a good updraft. Also, we packed a lunch and grabbed the fishing poles for a day out on the water in the canoe and after about 5 minutes on the water we noticed the canoe was taking on water and we had to head back to the dock so that was disappointing. Lastly there should be steps leading from the back deck down to the water. It was a pain having to go out the front door and walk around to the back of the house to go to the water. Also I’d say 50% of the light bulbs were burnt out or missing. There were replacement bulbs in the laundry room but only 2 were in there. Also, the town of Highlands isn’t what we expected. When we go on vacation we like to support the local artists and purchase crafts that they make. Going into town and seeing stores advertising Prada and Gucci wasn’t what we expected.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your recent visit to Mallard Manor. We do appreciate all of our guests' comments would like to respond in kind. We apologize for the cobweb and light bulb supply. These oversights have been brought to the attention of our housekeeping staff. We were unaware of the leak in the canoe and appreciate you bringing it to our attention for a simple repair. Regarding the fireplace, we were surprised to learn of your difficulty as it had recently been cleaned and serviced and all was in satisfactory order.....could you possibly have had some damp or green firewood? Thank you again for your visit and for taking the time to bring your concerns to our attention. **As of May, 2016 we have replaced the canoe for the enjoyment of our guests.**

Really terrific, clean place!

My family, including a toddler, stayed at Mallard Manor this past weekend. The setting is delightful. Big wide porch overlooking a finger of a lake. We brought our kayaks, but to get them down to the water would have been almost impossible. Very steep down there, but still you could easily walk down there and fish. Appointed very well and very clean. Kitchen outfitted to a T. No air conditioning, but not a problem. Extremely comfortable, very quiet.
