Step into the warmth of knowing you’re home when you walk into this beautifully renovated property full of Highlands history and charm.  Overlooking the pasture that once belonged to infamous log home builder, Joe Webb, Sanctuary Cottage offers an abundance of room and areas for retreat and relaxation.  The living room has plenty of comfortable seating around the beautiful stone fireplace with large flat screen tv.  Cozy up with a good book and a cup of afternoon tea in the respite room, which offers a comfy chair and day bed overlooking the expansive open deck. 
Speaking of decks….the covered screen deck and the large open deck are two additional living spaces where you can breathe in Highlands fresh mountain air.  Settle in to watch the sun set over the Fishhawk mountains and the stars come out across the wide-open, dark night sky. When you retire for the evening, you may choose from three bedrooms—a King with private bath and 2 Twins with hall bath on one end of the house, and King master with private bath on the other. Meals prepared in the brand new kitchen can be enjoyed by two fireside, six in the dining area, four on the screened porch or eight dining al fresco on the deck. Less than two miles from the city center and a stones-throw from Bridal Veil Falls, hikers will enjoy walking out front door of the house and taking a neighborhood trail to Cliffside Lake.

*This is a no-pet property.*
**This property has a Ring doorbell camera at the front door. **

[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. ]

Review from Rebecca

by Rebecca
Loved our stay at Sanctuary Cottage! The screened porch and huge deck that are so comfortably furnished are fabulous!Excellent staff! I originally spoke with HVR representative about another property that I saw on line. When it became clear that this property would not be best for our needs, the representative did some research and gave me 3 properties from which to choose. I am so glad that I picked Sanctuary Cottage! It was perfect for us. It is beautifully furnished and equipped. So user friendly with everything on one floor and a split floor plan with 2 masters and a guest. Even adequate parkingunusual for Highlands.

Great location. Quick 5 minute ride to Main Street Highlands. Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. Kitchen was very well equipped. Beds comfortable. Back deck was a perfect spot for morning coffee and dinner al fresco. It was a quiet and peaceful retreat surrounded by trees. Close to everything highlands has to offer but far enough away to feel like a secluded retreat.Easy booking on line, very responsive to questions. Quick to address any needs or concerns. Kept in touch by text which was very helpful.

Enjoyed and hope to return! Beautiful mountain home! Enjoyed our family getaway and this home provided everything we were looking for. Very cozy and beautifully decorated with comfy beds, awesome kitchen and large backyard deck. Very nice to also have firewood available for our use which we enjoyed.Made a call to have propane tank replaced for deck heater and it was promptly taken care of. Very friendly staff each time I spoke with anyone in office. Highly recommend working with your rental company.

We had a wonderful, relaxing week in Sanctuary Cottage! Sanctuary Cottage is a beautiful home. The furniture and bedding are so comfortable. The kitchen has very nice cookware and dishwareeverything we needed. The screened porch and outside deck were lovely places to spend time and both had the nicest outdoor furniture weve ever had in a rental homeall Summer Classics! We appreciated all the good lighting inside the home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Highlands home with us!Your company made the reservation and check-in process so easy! The house was clean and ready for usactually an hour early! We appreciated the welcome basket and start-out supplies.

We enjoyed it entirely! It was a little piece of paradise and we look forward to returning to Sanctuary Cottage. We could not stop talking about how much we loved Sanctuary Cottage. My two brothers and their wives have done a lot of international travel and they were totally surprised and impressed with how lovely it was. All the decor,dishware,appliances were beautiful! And we took total advantage of the screened in porch and deck. It was a gorgeous place for happy hour and then dinner! We are already talking about next summer and meeting there again!Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I felt like I was given great help in finding the perfect rental property for my family!

VRBO Review - "Great house!"

by Jane R

We absolutely loved our stay at Sanctuary Cottage. It is such a lovely and comfortable home. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck for cocktails and looking at the stars. The screened porch is a perfect spot to hang out during the rainfall. The kitchen is very well appointed having everything you need. Everything was just right. Lots of great spots to cozy up with a book. We loved our stay and hope to go back next summer!!

Fantastic Vacation The pictures of this property absolutely do not do it justice! It is FANTASTIC! The property owners have thought of every thing you might need! The linens and pillows on every single bed are fabulous! No expense was spared in this design! The outdoor space and views are amazing! We stayed here with our 15 year old, 6 year old and 3 year old. We hiked several local trails! Fantastic trip! You are just a few miles outside of town. Location is great!
