“Great place to stay outside of town in a very quiet setting!” We left the coast behind with the thermometer about to boil over and headed to the mountains. On our first morning there we woke up with the temp in the mid 50's. That alone was worth it. This house was perfect and a much needed getaway with an off the grid feeling. It is well kept and comfortable and it is obvious that the owner takes pride in making it feel like home. The owner met us there to give us the ins and outs and was pleasant to deal with. It is close to Gorges state park for a nice hike to see some beautiful waterfalls. I will definitely look this one up again when I decide to head back to western NC for my next escape to serenity!

“Perfect getaway” We had a wonderful week. The location is perfect. We were able to venture all around the area during the days because it's centrally located. It was easy to get to Bryson, Cherokee, Sky Valley, Hayesville, Murphy, Hiawassee, Mountain city, etc. The home is nicely stocked and comfortable. The owner, Mr. Hurst is easy to get in touch with and is very nice. We loved the eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy for breakfast along with the pizza for dinner. Made it a great start to our vacation.

About Highlands

The Highlands area of North Carolina and the surrounding towns of Aberdeen, Southern Pines and Pinehurst are considered the first home of American golf. Golfers travel here from all over to experience Highlands courses created by famous designers and groomed to emerald green perfection.

But there are also many other attractions here that are not to be missed. The Highlands are a perfect family vacation destination, offering pristine beaches, winding hiking and biking trails, beautiful waterfalls, and fun attractions for children of all ages.

There are also a variety of museums and cultural sites to explore here. Visit the museums and wander through the quaint shopping districts. When your feet are tired, experience the world-class relaxation and pampering at a luxury spa.

Each night after the sun goes down, take advantage of some of the best seafood restaurants and energetic nightspots in North Carolina. Come to the Highlands to play, relax, leave your worries behind and make some lasting memories.

Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your trip:

  • Visit the Dry Falls Park: This is one of the easier scenic hikes in the area with a shorter trail and manageable grade. For a more challenging hike with an equally beautiful waterfall destination point, try Bridal Veil Falls.
  • Go rock climbing: Whiteside Mountain draws rock climbers of all experience levels. This is a perfect place to learn if you're a beginner or challenge your skills if you're an expert.
  • Go trout fishing: The rivers and lakes around the Highlands area are serene and picturesque, and they're a perfect place to idle away the afternoon fly fishing or casting your line from a boat.
  • Explore the art galleries: The Highlands are home to some fantastic local and regional artists and sculptors, and many galleries open their doors to the public all summer long.
  • Visit the Highlands Biological Station and Botanical Gardens: This beautiful nature center and research area houses over 450 species of ferns, trees and blooming plants.
  • See a show: See a live theatrical performance at the Highlands Playhouse, a friendly and intimate local venue.

As you schedule your trip to the Highlands, you'll want to find a place to stay that that's relaxing and luxurious and also offers easy access to your favorite activities. Find a cabin with a fireplace if you plan to arrive during the winter and snowshoe along the trails. If you're looking for a family summer vacation rental, find a condo or elegant ocean villa just steps away from the beach.

In town, Quiet Cul de Sac
Peaceful and Covnenient

Had a wonderful 3 night stay. New property with a large furnished back porch and mountain view. Less than 3 minutes from downtown, grocery store and restaurants. Furnished tastefully with personal touches that make you feel right at home. All on one floor so it was easy for my 90 year old mom to move around. Fast internet connection. Accommodating owner with quick responses to email questions. I will re-book the next time I am in Highlands as the property exceeded this seasoned traveler's expectations.see more

Walk To Town 3 bedroom spacious home
Cozy & Close to Town

We had an excellent stay in Highlands, thanks in no small part to Lisa & co., and their lovely home. The house is located within walking distance of downtown Highlands (food, drinks, & shopping if that's your thing). Yet, it is also located so that it feels hidden away, as it is nestled in a thicket of trees. The home itself is comfortable and cozy, very well maintained. It's set up is ideal for groups of friends (like ours) or families and can easily accommodate large-ish groups. Lisa was swift, efficient, and very helpful throughout the entire process. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Lisa!see more
Lloyd's Lookout, Highlands, NC
Heaven

We stayed at Lloyd's Lookout for a week and did not want to leave. The home sits on the side of the mountain and has a great wrap around deck for relaxing and enjoying nature. Very comfortable home that sleeps 8 people. Close enough to town but far enough away to feel like you are in the trees. We will be coming back soon to stay here.see more

Walk to town from beautiful single story home
Very spacious yet cozy in a nice neighborhood setting

Shelby House was well furnished and has a well equipped kitchen. The outside sunroom, deck, and lawn are well maintained for outdoor dining. The entire house was very clean but the bathrooms need to be updated. Not only was the owner very helpful with any questions asked before and during our stay but also prepared the house by welcoming us with fresh flowers and delicious muffins. We enjoyed our stay and hope to go back again. Thank you John!see more
