Overview

A serene mountain getaway awaits you at High Ridge Haven - a newly renovated home that sleeps up to 7 guests on 10 private acres with stunning views of Whiteside Mountain. Our unique property is set on a ridge that takes advantage of mountain views from both sides of the home from large windows and wrap-around decks. While the location feels delightfully off the grid, it’s located just four miles from the Cashiers Crossroads and 10 miles to the bustling town of Highlands.

The setting is breathtaking the moment you drive down the gently winding driveway lined with towering trees and rhododendron bushes. Inside on the first floor are three well-appointed bedrooms - all with sliding glass doors to a balcony with comfortable chairs to view the mountains and forest. First bedroom has a king bed and en suite bathroom. Middle bedroom is a queen room, and the third bedroom also has a king bed. Second full bath is located in the hallway, along with the laundry room. An additional fold-away twin bed is available. Pack and play and high chair for a baby.

Up the stairs, you’ll find the spacious kitchen, family, and dining area - highlighted by soaring ceilings with wood beams and modern floor to ceiling windows. The chalet-style space is the perfect place to relax with family and friends, whether eating a home-cooked meal, unwinding in front of the gas fireplace after a day of outdoor activities, or playing board games at the large table.

Some amenities we offer:
- Coffee bar equipped with regular drip coffee maker, Keurig, and French Press, along with starter pods, sugar, creamer, tea, and hot chocolate to help you get your day started.
- Fully equipped kitchen with spices, oils, and all new appliances, pans, and utensils.
- Decks surround most of the home to take in the magnificent views, including an observation area with Mark 2 binoculars to see up close the cliffs of Whiteside Mountain - the highest perpendicular bare rock face east of the Rocky Mountains.
- Firepit with six Adirondack chairs.
- Board games, puzzles, and books for kids and adults.
- We are dog friendly for up to two house-broken 50-lb dogs with prior approval (see requirements below), and the property is a great place for your four-legged canines to explore with supervision.
- Our home is equipped with a generator, should electricity go out during bad weather.
- The location - unbeatable privacy and views. We are off the beaten path but just a 7-minute drive to the shops and restaurants of Cashiers and about a 20-minute drive to Highlands.
In addition, Sliding Rock is just a mile away - this is a fun waterfall/swimming hole where kids and adults can slide down the rocks and cool off during the summer.
Whether it’s hiking, fishing, golfing, skiing, horseback riding, biking, or swimming, the area is full of year-round outdoor activities. Or browse through unique shops, sample the many fine restaurants, go gem stone mining, horseback riding, take in a free concert during the summer, or visit during one of the many festivals.



Some things to note:
We have satellite internet, so it can be slow at times. If you need a better connection while here, you can go into the town of Cashiers (4 miles away)- the local library or Buck’s Coffee provides good internet. Additionally, Verizon offers the best cell service. If you are with another carrier, you can connect via Wifi to get calls or text messages.

We provide great directions, but those who are not used to driving in the mountains should be aware of curving, sometimes steep roads. The access to our home is fairly easy but would require a four-wheel or all-wheel drive during winter weather.

The unique setting of this home - on top of a ridge in the mountains - means that other creatures make their home here, so we ask that you embrace nature. This area is known as a temperate rainforest. While there aren’t many mosquitos, there are other flying insects as well as spiders, birds, squirrels, raccoons, deer, and the occasional bear.

Dog policy (also on rental agreement):

Two house-broken and well-trained dogs of up to 50 pounds and two years of age are allowed with prior approval by owner. Puppies are not allowed. No other animals are allowed. Failure to get prior approval of a dog may result in termination of rental, immediate eviction, and forfeiture of security deposit. There is a non-refundable fee of $125 per dog. Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations and crated if left alone in home. Dog waste must be picked up and disposed prior to departure. Any damage will be deducted from security deposit.
