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!

  • 5 of 5

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

Great private location in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable home. We enjoyed our family stay in the mountains. Owners were so easy to work with. We arrived late in the evening and the house was lit and ready for us to arrive. Perfect location between Highlands and Cashiers. Beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful! We felt very much at home.

Great property! Peaceful setting and very convenient to activities.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Butler's home was perfect. The house itself exceeded our expectations. It was nicely appointed and tastefully decorated with a perfect balance of rustic (think mountain lodge) and modern (nice, high end kitchen equipment). The location was perfectly situated to enjoy all that the Highlands, NC area has to offer. We strongly suggest the Whiteside Mountain hike, Dry Falls, and the Nantahala Outdoor Center whitewater rapids adventure. For dining, don't miss Cyprus.

Communication with the Butlers was outstanding. All of my questions were answered in a very timely fashion. They were friendly and helpful. The welcome letter was extremely helpful and covered pretty much all you would need to know to get checked in.

The only minor complaint that we had was the internet service is somewhat intermittent in nature. However, that is clearly the internet service provider's problem and no fault of the Butler's. Just be sure to complete any critical online work prior to coming.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for more, and we will be returning in the future.

Thank you!

We would stay here again & again!

  • 5 of 5

Chose this because we had 3 adult couples and this was the only property with 2 king suites and a third suite with 2 double beds - comfortable and all on the same level. We had room to spread out. The kitchen had everything we needed to dine in. The property was beautiful with all the amenities of home and then some! The hot tub after golf was a winner. Owners very responsive to questions and made the check/out process simple.
