Description

Equally accommodating for both family trips or romantic getaways, this newly constructed and professionally decorated modern farmhouse cottage is sure to be the highlight of the vacation. This 3-bedroom and 2-bathroom cottage is nested on 1.47 acres of serene woodland and can accommodate up to 9 guests. The house also features an advanced Wi-Fi mesh system, smart TVs in each room, and a whole-house back-up generator. Additionally, the home is located in a private gated community with paved roadways, no 4WD necessary!

To fully enjoy the home’s tranquil mountain setting, the back yard houses two firepits, one below the house outfitted with Adirondack lounging chairs and the other; situated further down next to the creek, features wooden stools cut and shaped from the large trees surround the property. As well, the house’s back porch is outfitted with rocking chairs, a sofa, a hammock, and a Weber gas grill. Additionally, the cabin’s envelopment in nature allows for even more family activities like gold panning in the creek, exploring the nature trails surrounding the property, and fishing in the annually stocked catch-and-release trout pond. In the summer months (open Memorial Day to Labor Day) guests are able to enjoy the clubhouse swimming pool, harboring even more breathtaking views of the towering mountains and rolling hills of the area. During the nighttime, guests are able to see the thousands of flickering fireflies that populate the area.

Just outside of the community there are activities such as hiking, sightseeing, fly fishing, boating, and golfing to be enjoyed. All of these activities can be enjoyed sat alongside Lake Glenville, which harbors 2 public access areas and a recreation area; housing picnic tables, a fishing pier, a swimming area with beach access, and public restrooms, with boat rentals being available. Although being fully enveloped in the peaceful mountainside, the house is situated only 30 minutes away from two major towns: Highlands and Cashiers. Within these towns there is a multitude of shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, breweries, coffee shops and more.
In case of large groups or a multifamily vacation, there is also a second home on an adjoining driveway available to be rented simultaneously.

*This is an animal friendly property. Pets must be approved by the agent/owner and a pet fee is required.*

House and back porch was very comfortable. All the kids and adults loved the creek with finding different gems inside the creek and having a make your own boat race in the creek. Loved being able to catch and release the trout in the 2 ponds. We had a Great time with our family with lots of memories.

My wife and I are retired and dealing with HVR was about as easy and friendly and professional as it gets. We were kept informed and updated on everything we needed to know in the days and weeks leading up to out stay. Finding the property that fit our needs was so simple and reserving the property was done in just a couple of minutes. HVR has their vacation rental model down perfectly.

A little tricky to find the first time, but secluded is what we wanted and loved about Firefly Cottage #1. Beautiful home, appointed very appropriately and comfortable. The side porch was amazing. Great hiking and exploring one step out of the door. We will be back.

Lauren is an ACE, and Lori was very helpful as well. we have been coming from hilton head to the islands for 3-4 weeks that past 6 years. A big challenge has always been to procure and confirm the proper rental unit. Lauren, our rental agent, was spectacular from the first day we contacted her in all respects. She is leagues above any other agent we have worked with over the years. A GEM, and a difference maker. i have never worked with anyone close to her capabilities and customer focus,

Total relaxation. Plenty of time to read, relax, and if you are a couple - a great place to just talk, without distraction. you leave here feeling even closer (if that's possible after 34 great years) - WONDERFUL HOME! Just slightly remote for us and what we like to do. Once here it is seemingly brand new, has an enormous 60 foot wide oversized deck, great internet, the bedrooms, baths and kitchen etc are all top quality.
