Refund Policy: We're pleased to refund 90% of your payment if your cancellation is outside 45 days of arrival with a $50 cancellation fee.(For monthly, within 60 days). Regrettably, we can not offer refunds inside 45 days, as it's difficult to rent vacation properties on short notice. However, if we can re- rent the property for the cancelled period, or a portion thereof, we will refund any amounts recovered from the new rental, less the 10% and $50 fee. Prices subject to change without notice. Paid reservations with deposits confirm original price.

If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.

You've gotta chose this one!

Great property with very helpful owners. This home has everything you could want or need for a terrific getaway. We especially loved the bathrooms and the gas fireplace was perfect for the cold weather. We just returned January 2009 and were blessed with lots of snow and cold! What a fun time. Highlands is great with numerous shops and delicious restaurants. The hiking is fantastic and snow skiing is within 1 1/2 hr.drive.

Owner's Response: We have had the most wonderful guest. When we created the home, we wanted it to be very special to all who stay with us. We love the interaction in dealing directly with our guest, answering their questions about favorite hikes, restaurants and seeing photos of their families at our home. THANK YOU ALL!

Beautifully decorated mountain home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 came to enjoy the hiking of southwestern North Carolina while looking forward to the eclipse on Monday afternoon. The area offers a lot to do and Highlands is a cute exclusive resort village with several very good restaurants. The property is small, but well managed, tastefully decorated, clean, and offers close proximity to many beautiful hikes and waterfalls. My kids enjoyed the hot tub, and I loved the cool evenings. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate well for the eclipse, but nonetheless a memorable short vacation!
