Backwoods Bungalow in Highlands, NC is tucked underneath a lush canopy topped by century old white pines. It has been transformed into a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom private mountain retreat. This bungalow has two master suites, each with a King size bed and ensuite. Upstairs is also a Full size sleeping loftbed.
Backwoods Bungalow, nestled in at over 4100 feet in elevation, is a short 3 minute drive to downtown Highlands and in the midst of hiking trails, multiple golf courses, scenic drives, waterfalls, fine dining, shopping and spectacular views of Nantahala National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains.
The extensive renovations include a completely rebuilt stone fireplace for those chilly mountain nights, new screened porch, flat screen TVs, new appliances, fresh no VOC paint for the interior, new paint on the exterior, quartz kitchen countertops, solid oak flooring throughout, completely renovated bedrooms, bathrooms and a new roof.
This professionally designed retreat has an open great room with reclaimed tin on the vaulted ceilings, wood beams and stone fireplace. The great room features custom lighting, a flat screen television with DVD player and many natural details to make you feel at home. Additionally, it offers dining for six and a spacious living room, which opens onto the screened porch. The well-appointed kitchen and stainless steel gas grill provide the perfect combination for a night of entertaining or a nice meal with the family. For those who prefer some quiet time or like to make the most of a rainy day, you can relax with a good book in the sleeping loft, play board games or browse the wireless internet from any location you choose. This cabin boasts two master suites, each with its own king-sized bed, smart TV and private bathroom. Each room features Egyptian cotton sheets, warm quilts and down comforters.

The best part is that Lark Lodge(formerly Camp Carlee), Peek-a-boo Paradise, Glen Falls Cottage and Backwoods Bungalow are all properties managed by us on the same street, so they provide the perfect accommodations for larger groups that like to have their own space as well.

*This is a no-pet property.*

Backwoods Bungalow provides all the coziness of a cabin in the woods, but all the freshness and efficiency of a modern retreat. Everyone who enters is impressed and loves Backwoods Bungalow.Your staff is professional, efficient and personable. We needed a mid week clean, and HVR worked hard to make that happen, despite a hectic holiday weekend.

Loved Backwoods Bungalow. The property was exactly as advertised--even better than we had hoped. It was beautifully appointed, well stocked, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We cooked in a lot and were very pleased that the kitchen was so nicely provisioned. The proximity to town was perfect. It was quiet and private.Everyone was extremely helpful and responsive. I felt confident anything we needed would be addressed.

Long weekend in January Lovely place! I wasn't feeling well most of the trip, but my family really enjoyed themselves. Even though I was sick, it was such a sweet, comfortable place to be feeling bad. It snowed and made it even better for everyone.

What a lovely little get away! More often than not, when my husband and I visit the Highlands, we either end up with a too-large home, or a too-tiny hotel room. This cottage was the perfect size. Home was beautifully appointed, nice size kitchen, outfitted w/everything a chef needs, bedroom was spacious, bed was too comfortable--we ended up sleeping in, and we never do that. The location was fabulous. Private but close to everything. We will definitely visit this one again.

Gods Country Highlands is one of my favorite locations! Beautiful and quiet, however also has some of best culinary experiences ever. This bungalow is by far the best home rental we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Well appointed, beautiful, and cozy. The rental agency left nothing out, everything we needed! David Bee personally checked the property, turned on a few lamps and had music playing for ambience. Loved it!

We loved this cabin in the woods! The cottage is beautifully appointed and in a great location! We had a wonderful time at this cottage. It is walking distance to Glen Falls and a quick drive to downtown Highlands. The cottage is also beautifully appointed!! The mattresses and pillows made for an excellent nights sleep. We would definitely rent this cabin again!!

Our group totally enjoyed our stay at Backwoods Bungalow! The cabin was beautifully decorated, and the location to downtown was so convenient. We all agreed that we would return soon.This is my second time to book a vacation property from Highlands Vacation Rentals. Lori and David Bee are excellent to work with, both with communicating before our stay and addressing any concerns we had during our trip. On New Year's Eve we had an issue with the master bedroom TV. Lori and David responded quickly and took care of the problem.

We had a wonderful stay at Backwoods Bungalow! Everything was very clean and the memory foam beds were super comfy (I usually don't sleep well when I'm away from home, but this time I did)! The kitchen was well-appointed. We enjoyed having two coffee pots (one regular and one Keurig). We loved how conveniently located the cabin is to downtown (just a short drive away). We hope to be back!Very nice and easy to work with!
