We live and work in New Orleans but adore the mountains and come up every chance we get! My favorite thing to do is ride my mountain bike on the gravel roads down to town and around Highlands -- feel free to use the 2 bikes in the garage shed!
Gigi purchased this House in 1920
Why Gigi chose Highlands
This home has been in my husband's family since 1920. 3 generations have grown up hiking in the smokies and have learned a great appreciation of nature.
What makes this House unique
Relaxing on the porch and taking in the great view or sunset is an unforgettable way to end a day in Highlands. Take a walk to town, hike up Satulah Mountain from the trail right behind the house. Enjoy fireplace on cold nights, and star gazing in front yard.

We loved our stay here!
The location is close to town (walkable) and yet feels remote -- and the view is gorgeous. The house comfortably accommodated our 6 adults with plenty of beds to spare. It would make a good family reunion house. Decor is homey and relaxed. The kitchen had all we needed. Our only snag was weak cellular service (which is typical in the mountains) and the owner was very responsive when we asked about this. We hope to return here again. Thanks to Gigi for everything.
A peaceful get away
A beautiful, charming older home in a spectacular location. There is a beautiful view fro the front porch and the house is surrounded by a lush yard with flower gardens. You feel very remote but are very close to downtown Highlands. We really enjoyed our stay.
Truly have serene privacy. Sitting on front porch was my favorite. I loved all the little areas in the yard, Hidden moss steps and little stone paths with stone walls. Superb. Thanks Gigi
We loved Pooh’s Corner so much!
You can tell this is a treasured family home steeped in Highlands history. I felt lucky to find it on VRBO. The seclusion it provides up there on the mountain made me feel brave and at peace at the same time. The views are breathtaking! The dogs loved having so much room to run and were happily worn out from our stay. Speaking of dogs, I didn’t expect the house to be so clean and well kept as a pet friendly rental. It was really the perfect place, and I hope to return next year. Gigi is very kind and accessible, and the longtime housekeeper was very nice to meet as well. One last thing, it still astounds me that this house feels all alone on Satulah mountain, not a soul in sight, yet such a short drive or pleasant walk to town! Pooh’s Corner is a piece of heaven!
Thanks Ashley, so glad you enjoyed our old Highlands house and the quiet! I love that about the place too, you feel you are far away when town is just down the road.
Highlands Cottage with Amazing mtn view
We enjoyed a relaxing visit, the beautiful mountain views and the one mile walk to Highlands - perfect fall weather was a bonus - lthis home has everything you need - loved it!
So much history in this house! Exceptional views, secluded, but so close to the center of town. Great space with everything you need! A great place for an outdoors-loving family like ours with active, energetic young ones. Old School Highlands in the very best ways!!!
Glad you enjoyed the house! Gigi
