|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Trickledown is situated on Big Creek close to Highlands, NC. There is a King bedroom and bath with a large shower upstairs next to a comfortable sitting room with a library and tv. Downstairs there is a queen bedroom and bath with a jacuzzi tub. The large gathering area has a botanical and biographical library and tv, fireplace and dining area. The kitchen has all amenities including a coffee/bar 'nook'. All across the back is a long screen porch and Big Creek sounds. There is a sitting area with a wicker sofa and rocking chairs on one side and a dining area on the other. Easy access to the kiln dried wood pile and the outdoor grille. The path to the creek features an iris garden. Other areas outside have 'special' garden areas like a moss garden, meditation garden, grandchildren's garden, succulent garden, 'gnome' path.
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
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.
The weather is delightful all summer and not severe very often during the winter. Gardening is easily successful because of the weather.
Great place to stay in Highlands. Very very nice home with plenty for the kids to do all around the house. Far exceeded our rental expectations.
My wife and I are regulars at Trickledown. This is the perfect "get away" for one or two couples. My wife and I love the warm, well decorated cabin and wonderfully landscaped property with a beautiful screen porch overlooking Big Creek. We continue coming back several times a year because Jane consistently takes care of every last detail to ensure a wonderful stay. Freshly ironed linens, fresh flowers, soothing music playing when you walk in, plenty of fire wood, everything you can think of. We invite different couples to join us on most trips and everyone begs us to invite them back. Even though we had badly needed rain during most of our stay this trip, we couldn't have been more content. Trickledown causes a completely different type of cabin fever....you get sick when you have to leave!
We have had the great pleasure of escaping to Trickledown over the past several years. Whether there with family or on a girls weekend, the experience is always the same - peaceful, renewing, comfortable, and perfect in every way! There is no better host than Jane. Prepare to build memories that will last a lifetime!
This was my third stay at the cottages. Gorgeous, peaceful and always home away from home. Truly paradise.
This was at least our 3rd visit to Trickledown, and we had as incredible a time as before....The 3 days passed rapidly, but yet the resultant relaxation made us feel as if we had been away for a week. It is especially wonderful to sit on the screened in porch in late afternoon, listening to the rushing water of Big Creek in the ravine below, while reading my Kindle and having a glass of wine.......it truly defines "relaxation"!
Jane Black should be commended on how welcoming the decor is, leaving no detail overlooked. We shall return next Fall for a repeat performance and another terrific getaway!
This was our first visit to Highlands, which is heaven on earth gorgeous. We chose Trickledown based on photos and other guest reviews. It exceeded our expectations! When we opened the door, we were greeted with fresh flowers, a hand written note from Jane and soothing background music from the Bose stereo. The owner's loving attention to detail was evident throughout: beautifully decorated with antiques , fine linens, special soaps, cozy chairs and throws. The kitchen had anything you could possibly need: great knives, All Clad cookware and Woodlands Spode china. Our favorite spot was the screened porch overlooking the soothing, rushing waters in Big Creek below. Enjoyed it for coffee in the mornings and cocktails by lamplight in the evenings. The first night my husband was so happy sitting out there, he did not want to go to bed!
