About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 9

Located on a private road one mile from downtown Highlands on the Rhododendron Trail, this unique secluded Old World Style Cottage sits on a small private mountain lake stocked with trout. It offers luxurious accommodations in the midst of a rustic mountain setting, within walking distance of downtown Highlands.

Both the deck and screened porch overlook the lake. The Large family room contains a stone fireplace and large windows facing the lake. The master bedroom on the main floor opens on to the screened porch. The upstairs master bedroom offers a beautiful view of the lake. The separate dining room overlooks a peaceful flower garden. The beautiful state of the art kitchen also provides additional dining area.

Upstairs there are three large bedrooms with private baths and a large den overlooking the lake provides additional family area and overflow sleeping accommodations.

Decorated in an upscale style that defies the surrounding secluded rustic environment, this cottage provides all of the comforts of home in a beautiful quiet relaxing setting. This is the perfect getaway location to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains and all the cultural treasures of Highlands.

One can participate in the many outdoor activities offered in the area or just relax in an enchanting atmosphere by the pristine lake in an environment reminiscent of the true Scottish highlands. Located conveniently close to shopping, restaurants and spa, as well as golf, tennis and mountain hiking trails, it is the perfect getaway location for those seeking relaxation and adventure without sacrificing comfort.

This house was great for a fun football weekend. My wife enjoyed going into town and shopping while I sat at the house and watched all the games with friends. Everything you want in a relaxing weekend and a great, welcoming house.

What a beautiful home. We enjoyed a nice relaxing week of fishing right outside, wonderful stores right down the street, fine dining, and long hikes. My husband enjoyed fishing and lots of golf. I was depressed to leave and hope to come back soon. The house is amazing!
