What a great time in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home in Highlands, NC. Everything we needed was right there. And the views from the back porch were spectacular, especially at sunset. I cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at your mountain house. This place is beautiful and the view is out of this world for us South Georgia people! Ha! Ha! We enjoyed seeing the sights around the area and had fun seeing several waterfalls. We took a day trip to visit the Biltmore House in nearby Asheville. Our two grandchildren had a ball. By the way, the kids loved the games you have at the house. Good idea!

Love Hickory Hill

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Highlands, NC for years. We have found Hickory Hill and love it. I've held a bridal shower, mother/daughter, weekend here and we've brought 3 other couples for a long golf weekends. Each visit has been great. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, dishes, etc. all that is needed to cook for a group. The bedrooms are very comfortable and you can't beat the views. If you love the mountains, you will love Highlands and the charm of Hickory Hill.

Perfect cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is cozy and offers amazing views/sunsets right off the back deck. The inside is totally renovated allowing for a rugged mountain experience while maintaining the luxury of modern technology. The cabin is very convenient to downtown highlands. The ugly dog, highland hiker, and mountain fresh grocery are all a must for every trip. We definitely try to stay here again on our next trip (and it sleeps enough to bring the whole family)!
