Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Large home on the lake in Cold Springs with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths plus 1/2.

Our upscale Highlands NC vacation rental cabin/home is loaded with mountain warmth and comfort on three beautiful levels of living. Each room is decorated with a collection of art from regional artists, antiques from across the mid-Atlantic and comfortable top market furnishings. We are right on a small lake with a 40 foot dock, four kayaks and perfect seating for conversation, reading or watching the sunset. Naturally there is the two story stone wood burning fireplace, but also a gas fireplace on the upper, 3rd floor open porch. Enjoy the gourmet kitchen with all the trimmings, adjoining the main level family room, dining room and screened porch. The first level also includes a one car garage, laundry room and mudroom with an outside "primitive" h/c shower. No bedroom on the first level. On the second level there is one king with master bath and one full bedroom with its own private shower and connecting half bath. The third, and top level, has one king and one queen bedrooms, also each with private baths. Sleeps 8 in the four bedrooms plus can accomodate 2 more in second level great room - daybed with twin trundle. Upper level porch with gas fireplace. This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY NC CABIN. We will even discuss the possibility of one dog! PET FRIENDLY. Our home is filled with treasures of art and antiques found within the mid-Atlantic region. The yard is a sanctuary of North Carolina plant species as well as landscaping that takes well to this temperate rainforest environment. Kayaking off our dock is such a pleasure in the afternoon and coffee in the morning on the dock is a peace filled experience with the birds singing and ducks passing by. There is even a long alley with a game space for Italian lawn bowling and horseshoes. A croquet set was just added as well. Our only cautions are there is no swimming in the lake and there are one or two flights of stairs to the bedrooms which some seniors find difficult.

Fabulous house on stunning property

  • 5 of 5

we simply loved staying at this fabulous 3-story house situated on a stunning lot bordering a lake on one side and a forest on the other. Although we were in a neighborhood, we felt like we were on our own private island. The house is beautiful and comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen and every room furnished in a most comfortable way. Can't wait to go back.

Serene and Upscale

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this beautiful home. We also visited in the summer. Loved both visits! This home is even more beautiful in person. It feels more like a home than a rental as everything is first class. Quiet subdivision, a "cooks" kitchen with high end appliances, lovely bedding, a wonderful choice of books, very serene and private feeling, spacious, yet warm and cozy. Outdoors, small private lake for kayaks and canoes. Great naps on the screen porch.The owners are a dream to work with. They are very friendly and responsive. Amazing.

Fabulous home, fabulous site!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well appointed home with all amenities in a beautiful private community. The home is perched on the edge of a small lake with a dock and kayaks and seating. Three full floors inside with 2 porches and a well stocked kitchen. Very nicely furnished with lovely art work and books. Each bedroom is unique and very well done. This is an extremely comfortable home. I didn't want to leave!
