We are originally from Atlanta, GA and married in Highlands in 1995. We bought our first home in Highlands in 2009 and finally moved here full time in 2012...never looked back. We believe we are living in paradise and love sharing it with our guests.

Perfect holiday cottage: very cozy, clean, and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bear Aire Cottage and plan to make a return trip in the warmer seasons too. This space was perfect for our small group of 4 people and 2 dogs. Victoria was a great host. She communicated well and made sure we had what we needed during our stay. The kitchen is well stocked, there is laundry available (for longer stays), and the cottage's layout is very cozy and spacious. The bedrooms are a great size and the bathrooms are very nice. The entire Cottage was very clean! The kitchen is narrow but has a surprising amount of storage and counter space. The kitchen opens up nicely to the living room and dining room areas to make it feel connected and spacious. The space is perfect for entertaining a small group for a few days and still allows for folks to have some alone time in the bedrooms or in front of the fire on the couch. The front porch is perfect for dogs - Victoria has even added a small lattice fence at the bottom for smaller dogs. The surrounding area is gorgeous. There is a greenway nearby and the Cottage is very close to downtown. I could go on about how much we loved this space. Thank you for providing this lovely home for our holiday celebrations!

This was our first visit to Highlands since selling our home there this Spring. We had such an enjoyable time that we did not miss our old home for a minute! The cottage is well-furnished and well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and laundry-wise. Victoria is a delightful host who enjoys knowing that her guests are enjoying themselves.

Bear Aire Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Highlands staying in this cottage. This is the cutest little house. We spent a lot of time on the deck. The weather temp was perfect and it was like sitting in the trees-very peaceful. Victoria was very accommodating and sweet. She called us the day after we arrived to ask us if we needed anything. It’s very close to town and waterfalls and there is a produce stand close by. We highly recommend this cottage. ❤️❤️❤️

Comfy cottage near Mirror Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Victoria and Mikes cottage near Highlands. Made a few meals in the cozy kitchen and grilled outside on the deck. Bed was super comfortable and the gas fireplace was convenient and warm after a long days hike. Our dog Truman made himself at home and we always enjoy all the dog friendly touches at the house. Took the new greenway trail into town and ended up at the dog park after walking through some gorgeous trails. Always love coming to Highlands and staying in Bear Aire properties!
