Why David L. Wallace chose North Carolina Mountains

We have had a vacation home in the Highlands/Cashiers area since 1997. We live in Florida and really want a getaway from the summer heat. We also miss the snow in winter, and this area has never disappointed us. The dining is wonderful, and we never get tired of the variety of restaurants.

No need to look any further - this is the perfect place to stay in the Highlands

  • 5 of 5

House is awesome with plenty of room inside and out with a terrific deck for viewing a large pond. My dog loved running around outside. We brought a folding Kennel with us when we'd leave for dinner. The owner is extremely nice and conscientious about your visit and truly makes you feel like he wants you to enjoy your experience in the Highlands.

This place is also very close to hiking trails, waterfalls, or shops and restaurants for all dining styles (low end, average pricing, and high end).

Make sure you see Sunset Rock, where I proposed to my wife 10 years ago.

If you can find Iron Bridge off Bullpen Road, there's a terrific hike where you can let your dog run loose (if he comes back) that parallels a Wild and Scenic River, at the headwaters of the Chattooga.

There is also Whiteside Mountain for a longer hike with awesome views.

Don't forget to at least drive by White Water Falls and get out and see a huge cascading waterfall. Short walk.

Great place to visit and great place to stay!

Relaxing stay at the Cottage @ Sparkle Lake

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was nice and comfortable. We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the lake. It was so quiet and peaceful we hated for the weekend to be over. There were 4 adults on this trip and there was plenty of room for us and 2 bedrooms that we didn't use. The house would accommodate at least another 4 people or more! The kitchen is beautiful, spacious and equipped with most everything you need for cooking. The furniture is comfortable. The home is close to downtown Highlands which made for a short trip for shopping, dining and exploring.

Relaxing Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to get away from hectic Atlanta and give my wife some peace, quiet and rest from her teaching job. Perfect place to do all!!! I was able to fish in the pond while she took a nap by the fireplace! Only minutes from downtown Highlands. House was clean and extremely well stocked. Bed and linens were VERY comfortable, haven't slept that well in a while! David was awesome to work with and made the whole process easy and made us feel at home. Highly recommend this house for a mountain getaway!
