Escape to the mountains and enjoy nature and mountain breezes with Forest Retreat. This property borders the Nantahala national forest on two sides. Enjoy the sounds of birds, the mountain laurel and the rhododendron as you drive to the home. You might even see a family of deer. The entire back of the house is wrapped in a large porch that overlooks the Nantahala National Forest. All this and yet close to town -- its 3.3 miles and less than five minutes to the stores and restaurants in Highlands.
Enjoy all the amenities you'd expect with a large-open common area, wood floors, wood burning fireplace with a gas starter, fully stocked kitchen with a gas stove (including platters and serving utensils for entertaining or family dinners), laundry room, and large master suite and bath with a jacuzzi tub. Original artwork is featured throughout the house with a couple of paintings from a local Highlands artist.
Forest Retreat can be rented as a 2-bed, 2-bath, or as a 4-bed / 3-bath. There is plenty of parking and a 2-car garage with a full-size ping-pong table that can be opened for some family fun. There is a land line with free US calling due to the occasional low cell phone reception, and we also have satellite TV, four flat-screen TV’s, and wifi internet service so you can remain connected if needed.
We hope you enjoy the natural respite within the forest, while also appreciating the proximity to the amenities and charm of Highlands center. Relax and kick back on the deck and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. There are a couple of books in the house discussing local destinations, history, and outdoor activities.
**The Rates listed on this page are for the whole 4 bedroom/3 bath house. To inquire about renting just the upper level, please see the 2bedroom/2 bath listing or call our office.**

[All of the homes managed by Highlands Vacation Rentals have wifi internet access(speeds may vary based on different providers), basic kitchenware & dishes, linens provided, and a starter set of amenities including: 2 toilet paper rolls per bathroom + A set of personal shampoo, conditioner, hand & body soap (also per bathroom), 2 paper towel rolls, a few kitchen trash bags, a kitchen sponge, some dish soap and a couple of dishwasher and laundry detergent pods. ]
** Please be advised that the Convenience fee is the credit card processing fee for the reservation. If you wish to avoid this fee, you may still place your reservation but will need to call the office at 828-526-9999 and pay by echeck **

VRBO Review - "Lovely Place"

by Nina H

Good service from Highlands vacation rentals. Place is beautiful but it’s 15 minutes from town because the drive is partly unpaved. Would need SUV in winter to access, and don’t bring your sports car!

Loved it and will choose it again. Large open area for family time. Wall of windows to see forest. Large Deck across the back with places to sit and enjoy the woodsVery helpful. I asked for help to find public golf courses (I searched and didnt find anything satisfactory). They found a list of public golf courses and we had a great day on the course

Trip to the mountains. This cabin offered a quiet place in the woods, plenty of room, and many amenities. Numerous trails and nearby Highlands provided options for the family. We loved it.

Forest Retreat was truly that. It was tucked away from Highlands -true serenity - but if you wanted to have amazing restaurants and great shopping town was only 2 miles away. The house is well equipped for a family of 5 (and even more). We made a fire every night and the living room was one of our favorite places. We already want to book again!Lauren was great to work with and advised us on the house- she was helpful and kind and top notch! We will be back

The only problem we had is that sometimes the entry hard to see at night in the rain. Maybe a brighter sign. We would have stayed another week but someone beat us to the punch for a 4 day stay.

Review from Ana Maria

by Ana Maria

Great stay! We had a wonderful stay here! The split level allowed for my sisters family and my family to have our own space while still being together (note, you have to specifically ask for the other level). The priority was cleaned right before we arrived! The kitchen was well stocked. The view in the winter allowed us to see the mountains and sunset through the trees. The property is on a remote one lane road with several houses along it but far enough away you feel secluded. They had a Christmas tree set up for us which was such a nice surprise! The downtown as well as multiple small hikes and beautiful waterfalls were within a few minutes drive. We look forward to coming back soon!
