Overview

Highlands Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This charming cottage is situated in a serene setting overlooking Highland's Lake Sequoyah and the Blue Ridge mountains. The 38-foot deck is perfect for viewing gorgeous sunsets and starry nights, lounging on a sunny day, or just taking in the beauty of the lake, mountains, natural surroundings, and fresh North Carolina air.

The stone fireplace lends warmth to a cozy family room with a wood-beamed ceiling, skylight, hardwood floors, and a stunning view of the lake. Some of the amenities you will find include a 40-inch flat-screen High-Def TV, VCR/DVD, CD player, WiFi, games, books, magazines, videos and free long distance service.

Bake some goodies in the country kitchen, which houses all the necessary appliances, supplies, and modern conveniences. Dine indoors looking out bay windows or grill outside and enjoy your meal on the deck with a spectacular view.

Plenty of sleeping quarters with three delightfully decorated bedrooms (king, queen, and two twins).

The king-size and queen-size bedrooms have lake views, cable TV, ceiling fans, comfortable mattresses, quaint antique furnishings and mountain decor. The twin-bedded room also includes cable TV and a ceiling fan. There are two full baths with showers and tubs, plenty of space for toiletries, a half bath off the queen-size bedroom, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.

Lakeview is only 1-1/2 miles from the center of Highlands, a great place to shop or dine in some of North Carolina's finest restaurants. Located just minutes from hiking trails, scenic waterfalls, and lake access for canoeing or kayaking. You can ride ATVs, go rappelling, horseback riding, or picnic at a public beach that is less than five minutes away. The winter months are the time for downhill skiing, snow boarding, and tubing, which are all within 15 minutes.

If you want a vacation where you can get away from the fast pace and stress of everyday life, spend some time in Highlands. LAKEVIEW COTTAGE ... your new home-away-from-home.

Well appointed, comfortable cottage stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were very responsive with all details on our visit to The Highlands for an amazing wedding! The cottage was clean, comfortable and situated just minutes from main street shops and eateries. We enjoyed coffee on the porch each morning, had busy days out and about, and were glad to be back at our cottage for a good night's rest each evening. Wish we could've stayed longer. Hoping to return and would stay right here again!

Perfect for a relaxing get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

RMy wife and twin 7 year olds enjoyed several days at Lakeview. The place was in immaculate condition. The deck overlooked a great view of the lake below and since the deck was not accessible from the ground we enjoyed leaving the sliding door open and having the fresh mountain air in the cabin all day and night. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed sleeping in till late morning. The kitchen was well stocked. The homeowners were attentive and even called to make sure we arrived safely and that everything was in order.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeview cottage in Highlands was absolutely wonderful. We were looking for a relaxing few days to celebrate our anniversary, read, hike and enjoy the quietness of the mountains. It was exactly what we wanted. The cottage was impeccably clean, organized, and anything you may need to cook with was there.

Mark and Chris were so nice and responsive. No detail was overlooked. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely recommend this cottage and we look forward to coming back.

Our Third Time to Stay at Lakeside Cottage was a 10 1 / 2 rating!!!

  • 5 of 5

Four ladies have picked Lakeside Cottage for the third year of hiking in The Highlands area. The cottage is beautifully decorated and fully equipped to enjoy a cozy fire in the morning, a fun Happy Hour on the deck overlooking the lake, a kitchen designed for easy, but gourmet meals, and lots of laughs for our group. The bedrooms are comfortable for the four of us. We decided this year to hike a little easier and spend a bit more time at the cottage, so we enjoyed a more relaxed pace, and even took time to watch a couple of movies and play some games. We'll definitely be back next year!

Lake View retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place to relax and unwind. It was spotlessly clean, and amply equipped with everything we needed. The location was ideal. The homeowner was great to work with. I hope to return one day.

Relaxing Mountain Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 girls, and I have been coming to Lakeview Cottage in Highlands for Spring Break for many years now. The girls were small when we started coming but now they are teenagers. They love coming to this lovely cottage and to this charming little mountain town. The cottage has everything you could want. The beds are SO comfortable, it is always immaculate, tastefully decorated and has everything you could want. Our girls work hard in school and after the pressure of exams, papers, recitals, athletic events, etc...the last thing we want is a hectic spring break on a crowded beach or even worse, an amusement park. Lakeview Cottage in Highlands is the perfect place for us. We sleep late, cook breakfast in the cabin but at night we eat out in the numerous wonderful restaurants in Highlands. We also hike every day. The town itself is wonderful and we enjoy strolling up and down the streets window-shopping and really-shopping. At night, after dinner, we read or play scattegories or watch movies in the cabin. We look forward to coming here every year. And you could never find more hospitable hosts than Chris and Mark.
