About Jane Black

We live in Atlanta, GA about 2.5 hours from Highlands. We love the Highlands atmosphere and plan to spend more time here.

Jane Black purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Jane Black chose North Carolina Mountains

My grandparents built a vacation home in Highlands in 1935. I visited during the summer while growing up and the area still feels like 'home'. The sound of the creek is what drew us to this current property.

What makes this cottage unique

The weather is delightful all summer and not severe very often during the winter. Gardening is easily successful because of the weather.

Notes:
Trickledown is near our vacation home, Wagmore. While we are not always there, we are ready to answer any questions or help in any way when we are in residence. Tucked Inn, on the other side of Trickledown, is also on VRBO. It has three bedrooms so there is the possibility of renting both which gives you five bedrooms if it is a larger group.

Absolutely amazing! Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

By far the best family vacation we have taken. Jane has gone above and beyond in every detail of her home to ensure that guests have a memorable stay. This property is absolute perfection in every way. Thank you for sharing, Jane!

Trickledown is the perfect mountain getaway for one or two couples!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are regulars at Trickledown. Jane maintains this property so it always feels like home and not a sterile rental property. We usually invite another couple to join us each trip and everyone begs us to invite them back. We never grow tired of coming here. Nothing is overlooked. The setting on Big Creek, the landscaping, the architectural and interior design, the antiques, the well furnished kitchen, Spode china, fine linens, even fresh flowers and soft music all greet you when you walk in the door. My only regret is that it's not for sale, I would buy it in a heartbeat! This has become our mountain home. It's wonderful any season of the year.

Everything you could ask for...even better than home. Thanks so much to Jane.

  • 5 of 5

This property has so much attention to detail ,inside & outside, it can only be expressed by seeing it. There is a reason there are only "5 STAR" reviews on this lil slice of heaven in the Highlands. Best VRBO property I've ever experienced. Jeff C.

Magnificent as always

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th visit. I don't know what else I can say that I haven't said before. We love this place. We did have the good fortune of meeting Jane this visit. She is as lovely in person as she is via email. We are already looking forward to next year.

Simply amazing!

So homey and welcoming. We love the cold weather and we're delighted to light the fireplace and watch 4" of snow falling. Would definitely come again...probably next winter!
