About Jane Black
We live in Atlanta, GA about 2.5 hours from Highlands. We love the Highlands atmosphere and plan to spend more time here.
Jane Black purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Jane Black chose Highlands
My grandparents built a vacation home in Highlands in 1935. I visited during the summer while growing up and the area still feels like 'home'. The sound of the creek is what drew us to this current property.
What makes this Cottage unique
The weather is delightful all summer and not severe very often during the winter. Gardening is easily successful because of the weather.

Rained the entire time and still wonderful!
My wife and I come to Trickledown regularly. Even though it rained every day, there is no place we would rather be. Sitting on the screened porch with blankets enjoying a glass of wine, and listening to the roaring sounds of Big Creek and the rain suited us just fine. There was plenty of fire wood, a well equipped kitchen, and gas grill. Great restaurants and shopping just 3 miles away. Peaceful and well appointed and beautifully landscaped make Trickledown our favorite home away from home and just 2-1/2 hours away from Marietta. The owner is always responsive. Can't wait to return!
Thank you for the positive comments including a positive take on the rain you enjoyed! We are looking forward to your next visit.

This cabin is beautiful. The surrounding grounds with creek are very park like. We enjoyed the generous library of books and all the provided amenities. We are looking forward to a return visit.
I am so happy to know you noticed and appreciated the many books and extras. Also, that you must have explored the grounds and its diversity. We hope you will find the opportunity to visit again!
Quiet solitude in the mountains, a real treasure!
My wife and I have enjoyed coming here several times a year for quite a while. Jane always has Trickledown well equipped. The kitchen, the fireplace with plenty of firewood, the grill, the landscaping, everything is in place for an enjoyable and quiet stay. Sitting on the screened porch and listening to Big Creek is wonderfully therapeutic. Every couple we invite to join us thoroughly enjoys their stay. We always hate leaving and can't wait to come back.
We LOVE our return guests and are always grateful when nice compliments are given. I hope we always keep ahead of expectations.
We have been privileged to have stayed at Trickledown for quite a few years. Jane has created an
enchanted environment with her gardens, accented with fanciful sculptures and things like the half-buried wicked witch in the children’s garden! And of course you get to hear the soothing sound of the mountain stream behind the house all the time.
The inside is beautifully decorated, and comfortable. The beds, linens, towels soaps are all
Five star. As a bonus, there is a literal library of books, many on gardening.
If you get a rainy day, you can hole up, nice and cozy before the fire with one of her great throws and a book. We always find the house very clean and flowers awaiting us! Jane is a very gracious hostess!
I love your detailed descriptions of different areas and I thank you for taking the time to share with others. The thing we strive for is a positive experience for you and it is good to know your visits continue to inspire you to return. We are grateful for that.
Wonderful Relaxing and most comfortable
We had a fantastic stay and enjoyed the home and porch, despite somewhat rainy weather . Had great hikes and especially loved rainbow falls
Hope to be back
From the moment we walked in the door the house was so inviting. A charming house with a lovely screened in porch with sounds of a small creek rushing by. Very relaxing and the hospitality was superb! This was our second stay and we can hardly wait to return!
We love our return visitors and look forward to your second return!
