About the property

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.

About Mark & Chris Flaschner

We live in Atlanta GA and have been coming up to Highlands since 1999. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with this magical mountain community and we are sure you will too. Lakeview Cottage is decorated to reflect the spirit of the mountains and is extremely well-maintained and impeccably clean. Escape to Highlands and you will leave with amazing memories that will last a lifetime. Make sure to sign the guest book so you can read about your last stay the next time you come to visit. And there will be a next time...

Mark & Chris Flaschner purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mark & Chris Flaschner chose Lake Sequoyah

Lakeview is actually nicer than the pictures show, we have received only exceptional reviews in over 15 years of hosting renters and there are many regular renters that come back every year.

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage is well maintained by owners in the hospitality business. Located less than a 5-minute drive to all the dining and shopping and an spectacular view of Lake Sequoyah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So much beauty. So easy to relax and do nothing. We enjoyed our stay so much. It feels like coming home each time we visit. Already I can’t wait until next time!

Cottage Perfect for Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is immaculate. Bedrooms are spacious and matresses are comfortable. Great view of the lake from the deck. Loved that the cottage was decorated for Christmas! Kitchen is well-stocked. Gas fireplace adds to the coziness of the family room. We were lucky enough to have several inches of snowfall. Mark answered all questions and was very helpful in offering suggestions to make our stay pleasant. Truly was a relaxing weekend. Will definitely return. Highly recommend.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Lakeview Cottage is a charming property. The kitchen is fully stocked with essentials, there is a lovely gas fireplace in the den (which added tons of charm to our fall visit!), the back deck/patio overlooks a picturesque lake, and the place is spotless! It is very convenient to both downtown Highlands and waterfalls, nature hikes, etc. Additionally, coordinating with Mark and Chris could not have been easier. They even called us directly on the first night to make sure we’d gotten there ok and that the place met our expectations upon arrival. We will definitely stay here on any future trips to the area!!

Wonderful, relaxing girls’ trip!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect! The owners thought of everything you would need to have a great stay at the house. The view from the deck was awesome and a great place for coffee or wine. We came to relax and we did. Puzzles, chats and tv by the cozy fire. We all found the bedrooms comfortable and well appointed. We want to make our visit an annual tradition.

A Wonderful Place to Stay in Highlands

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with Lakeview Cottage! Very comfortable, beautifully decorated, lovely view of the lake, and convenient to town...everything you could want. We have stayed in many rental properties in Highlands over the past 35 years, and this is definitely one of the most pleasant. We especially enjoyed the bright cheerful decor -- no dark dreary paneling as in so many other mountain properties. Thank you Mark and Chris, we'll be back!

Lakeview is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was, I believe, our 8th year at Lakeview and each stay is as satisfying and pleasing as the last. Chris and Mark have made Lakeview into a comfortable retreat and/or launching pad for the many activities around and in Highlands. You are able to do as much or as little as you want and still have a wonderful environment. Of course we all have to eat and there are many fine restaurants in Highlands and in Cashiers, a short drive away. Shopping is not bad either! The cottage is always clean, warm and welcoming and really like coming home after a while away. The deck is inviting always - great place for a cup of coffee early or a glass of wine after a trip into town. The owners are always accommodating and responsive; Mark will check on you as you arrive to see that you are finding everything as you expected - I have rented a number of properties and no one ever did that before; cannot beat the customer service!! Somehow we missed a great restaurant on our last trips which we tried this time and were very pleased - Lakeside on Harris Lake just outside of town. Very good food and nice quiet environment with great service. Try it - and do try Lakeview cottage - it is a "keeper"
