About Sandlin

My wife and I started coming to Highlands 7 years ago. Being from Alabama we enjoy the almost 20 degree difference in temperature during our hot summer months. Wonderful restaurants, friendly residents and the many activities have made us appreciate our discovery in the Smoky Mountains.

Sandlin purchased this house in 2011

Why Sandlin chose Highlands

We looked for the perfect house for almost 3 years before we found the Tree House. When we first drove up, we knew this was the one.

What makes this house unique

We are close to town and shopping, but because of our location you have your privacy. Our log house is surrounded by a forest of towering white pines and hardwoods. An indoor and an outdoor fireplace makes for an enjoyable afternoon or evening.

The Tree House is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the Tree House for the week between Christmas and New Year and it was a wonderful experience. Carol and Steve were lovely hosts and gave us all of the information we needed in advance. The house was cozy and warm from the minute we arrived and everyone in our party felt comfortable throughout the week. We enjoyed the fireplace, the kitchen was perfectly appointed and the bedrooms/bathrooms were private enough for each group to have their own space. We hope to return to the Tree House very soon.

Charming, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our family to spend Christmas! Enough room for three families to gather! Walking distance to beautiful downtown Highlands yet situated on a beautiful lot with your own privacy! The outdoor fireplace was a great bonus to enjoy a glass of wine for the adults and roast marshmallows for the kiddos! We will hopefully be back as it's the perfect place to explore Highlands!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room—there are lots of steps if that’s any issue for anyone in your group and a very steep driveway. But the house has everything you’d need and owner was very responsive. It was a great place to stay

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good visit. The drive-way is steep but the walking path is does help if you're walking. Come back again. Hope the weather was nice enough that allowed you to enjoy the front porch & hot tub.
