2-bedroom/2-bathroom cabin with porches, stone fireplace, custom kitchen
About Connell NeSmith
This precious cabin was our first home as a married couple. Career opportunities took us away from Highlands, but we weren't ready to part with this special spot. What we love best about this house includes the custom stone fireplace, the copper/granite/ stainless sleekness of the kitchen, the mudroom, the open floor plan, the sprawling front porch, the quiet street, the gorgeous wooded mountains right outside the door, and the wonderful town of Highlands itself. If you'd like to know more about us or the home, please message us through VRBO - we would LOVE for you to enjoy this special property.
Connell NeSmith purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Connell NeSmith chose Highlands
Highlands is known for being an ideal summer retreat and a perfect place to enjoy fall's breathtaking colors, but in this mountain cabin, we fell in love with every season. Summer and fall are, of course, spectacular, but in winter we loved the warmth of the fireplace and ice-skating in town. In spring, our yard is covered in daffodils and what we learned are "fiddle-heads" - watching them unravel into an acre of wild ferns was always my favorite sign of spring and summer to come. For a "small town," Highlands offers absolutely everything from gourmet dining/specialty groceries and incredible shopping, to community events and noteworthy art exhibits. More than anything, we enjoy the great outdoors that Highlands offers, especially hiking the many beautiful trails and fly fishing in the pristine rivers. We could go on and on - we only hope that you will come enjoy it all for yourself!

Average accommodations compared to other places we have stayed.
It was very convenient to downtown but I seriously doubt that anyone has walked back from town. It was easy to find and the electronic lock was helpful. My wife found the lighting in the kitchen a little dim and the bathrooms kind of small. Not that these items were negative, but they made it kind of average instead of outstsnding.
Lovely cottage convenient to town but without the noise and traffic
Great place to use as a base to explore highlands and the area. Owner very accommodating and the cabin was very comfortable. Would absolutely return and recommend a stay to others.
It was wonderful. Close to main street BUT a tough walk back home (the owner warned us about this)
The property was as charming as it is pictured. Wonderful screened porch which we used throughout our stay. Kitchen needs mixing bowls and teaspoons. A few blankets in the closet would be nice for cool nights and windows in bedrooms need screens. When our time was up we could have stayed another couple of weeks. Golf courses are close-by. People at the duplicate bridge center are very nice and Highlands has an abundance of great restaurants. Lighting at the property could be better for guests who
like to read. We had a great time and very much enjoyed the property and we have
shared this address and information with many good friends who show interest in a stay in the mountains on Satulah Ridge Road.
Comfy and Cozy
Great get away cabin. Perfect for a small family or couple. Perfect location to town. Comfortable and cozy!
Perfect cabin for a couple or small family. Clean, well-kept, charming, nice kitchen. Owner very responsive to reservation requests, questions, etc... Very short drive to town. We look forward to visiting again!
A quaint smallish cabin high above Highlands. Probably could walk to town the mile or so ,but the walk back would be a little straight up hike. We have visited Highlands in the Fall for 30 years and love the area!
This wonderful mountain town comes alive during the summer season with community events and weekend arts and music festivals. Pick up a copy of the local paper, The Highlander, to read about all the goings on around town!
