About Gigi

We live and work in New Orleans but adore the mountains and come up every chance we get! My favorite thing to do is ride my mountain bike on the gravel roads down to town and around Highlands -- feel free to use the 2 bikes in the garage shed!

Gigi purchased this house in 1920

Why Gigi chose North Carolina Mountains

This home has been in my husband's family since 1920. 3 generations have grown up hiking in the smokies and have learned a great appreciation of nature.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing on the porch and taking in the great view or sunset is an unforgettable way to end a day in Highlands. Take a walk to town, hike up Satulah Mountain from the trail right behind the house. Enjoy fireplace on cold nights, and star gazing in front yard.

This historic home was charming, well appointed, breath taking views, seclusion from crowds, plenty of room, and a wonderful location near town but provided the mountain rustic experience we wanted. Great yard and walking room with pets. Will definitely return again.

Charming historic home

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend in Highlands at this historic home. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room, with extra beds to spare. We spent both evenings on the front porch enjoying the sunset, the view, and the serenity. The quiet was much needed for this busy group of moms. The walk to town was easy & on a safe, not very traveled road - and you really burn some calories on the way back to the house! The location couldn't be better for a group who wants to enjoy the town as well as the mountains. The owner was great to work with to get the house reserved & paid for. We had no problems when we were there - we even figured out how to work all of the old baseboard heaters (no problem!)! This would be a great place to stay for couples, families, or a group of moms who just need to get away from it all! We'll certainly be back!

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here and loved our visit. It was secluded but close enough to town that we didn't feel completely isolated. The views and the surrounding property were gorgeous! The house was very clean and well maintained. We didn't want to leave!

We loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for several weeks and loved it. What a perfect location; the view from the porch was incredible! What a great spot to enjoy a cocktail and take in those beautiful mountains. Plus it's walkable to town. However, once you're at the house, you feel miles away from civilization. Our kids (9,11,13) loved having their own space in the upstairs loft. There were 8 of us staying here yet we never felt crowded. The house has a comfortable, laid back feel to it. We loved grilling out or using the kitchen to prepare family meals to be enjoyed in the spacious dining room. My family made some wonderful memories here and we'll be back. Thank you!!

Loved the charm, privacy, and proximity to town

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. It is so private and quiet but an easy 15-20 minute walk into town. The view from the front porch is why people flock to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Gigi is an incredibly gracious and responsive host. We plan to return to this home for many summers to come!

Highlands Review

Old Highlands charm with comfortable front porch to enjoy beautiful views including sunsets. Tucked away in woods but close to town.

Very nice for anyone, particularly family vacation.
