Highlands, North Carolina
Lakefront Cabin (2 Bedrooms downstairs, 2 bedrooms upstairs in large loft, 2 Baths - Sleeps 8)
Enjoy a peaceful cabin getaway on Apple Lake in Highlands, NC. Highlands is a small charming mountain town filled with great restaurants and shopping, you would only be 5 minutes away! At over 4100 feet in elevation, there is rarely a hot summer night. This cabin has large cathedral ceilings, huge wood burning stone fire place, and jacuzzi. Minutes from scenic waterfalls, enjoy cooking your own meals, paddle a kayak on the lake or fish for bass or brim, sit on one of two decks and watch the hummingbirds fly by. Wonderful for a family vacation or romantic getaway!

Pet Policy:
We permit Dogs ONLY (no cats, birds, snakes, etc.) on a case-by-case basis for an additional fee. Visiting pets must be on a Flea Prevention program.

Interaction with guests
I live in Marietta, Georgia;however, there will be times when I will be staying in the cabin next door. There is a local person who is in charge of the cabin and you will receive her phone number, in case of any problems. Information will be sent to you concerning the combination to the key lock on the door, cabin information, local sights and hikes in and around Highlands, and restaurants. In the cabin you will find books and maps about sights and hikes, and other activities in the Highlands area and Western North Carolina mountains. I am always a phone call, text, and email away, and look forward to helping you enjoy the Highlands area!
Best Regards,
Mary Ann Badovinac

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay in our Highlands cabin, and cannot wait for your return. We have added lights on the top deck for those intimate evenings under the trees and stars. Enjoy a small fire in the chiminea on the deck while enjoying family and friends. Sincerely, Mary...

About the neighborhood
The cabin is located on Apple lake, which is a small lake containing brim and bass. There is a covered front porch attached to a deck with seating. Stairs lead down to a hexagonal deck with seating around it, and there are stairs which lead to the dock. Two kayaks and a small fishing boat are available for guests to use. Trees and foliage surround the cabin. There are about eight houses around the lake. 1/2 Mile Inn is at one end of the lake. The area is very peaceful and quiet.
