You'll love our very secluded cabin with a great view and rustic touches. Beautiful drives on curvy mountain roads lead to the quaint mountain towns of Highlands and Cashiers. Enjoy a completely private, incredibly quiet and recently-renovated cozy cabin overlooking Black Mountain. It sleeps 5 with 2 queen bedrooms and a queen-size pull-out couch. You'll have your choice of several outdoor spaces, including a large deck with Adirondack chairs to enjoy the mountain view, an outdoor eating area, a covered porch with rustic rockers to enjoy the sound of the rain and a separate tin-roof deck with a hanging day bed for a relaxing afternoon. You'll feel whisked away to two different worlds, depending on the direction that you look while swaying in the bed. You can bring yourself to the deep forest or imagine hiking the mountains. The tin-roof deck also comes with full-size propane and charcoal grills. Adirondack chairs surround the fire pit, in the natural setting of the woods. You will be minutes away from a natural sliding rock, hiking trails, shopping, golf courses, lakes and many wonderful restaurants. Dogs are welcome anytime (max 2, NTE 50 lbs each or contact us to discuss), and if interested/needed, we store two collapsible kennels. Locking gates are on each end of the deck to confine small kids or pets. The cabin comes equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, sheets, bedding, towels, and a hair dryer. We have Internet, a smart DVD player and a Google Chromecast to steam your favorite shows. Finally, there's a newly-built laundry shed for guest use.
The first and last third parts of the driveway to get to the property are a little steep, but all type of cars and trucks make it up just fine, including small 4-door sedans. If you drive SLOWLY (5mph), it won't be a problem at all. The driveway is naturally and purposely bumpy. We keep it maintained but due to the heavy rainfall, in between maintenance, it can get quite bumpy. Also, there are culverts placed in various spots to divert the water down the hill.
Critters clause: although it's rare to see any bugs in the house (as we get regular treatments through Terminix and TruTech Wildlife), it's possible. This is a mountain cabin and we are surrounded by all kinds of critters outside, such as bugs, spiders, mice, snakes, racoons or even bears.
Although we have instant booking activated, you are renting our home so be sure to include a message so I may get to know you a little better. Please give me the basics, such as where you're traveling from, if you've been to Highlands before, and any questions you may have.
