Charming Cabin Apartment with Mountain View
Charming Cabin Apartment with Mountain View

Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage along with mountain view!
My comfortable, rustic, private cabin apartment on 31/2 wooded acres with open western exposure to the mountains and sunsets is just the place for a relaxing stay only minutes from Highland's shops, gourmet restaurants, scenic waterfalls, Zip Line at Highlands Aerial Park, Sky Valley with public Golf Course, and more. It is in perfect view for Total Eclipse on August 21, 2017.


This secluded mountain cabin is on 3 1/3 wooded acres with mountain view from front balcony in Scaly Mountain, 20 min. from Highlands. The landscaping includes natural wooded areas and wildflower gardens, and a 3' pond with waterfall. The custom designed cabin built with natural cedar inside and out by owner’s architect father was built in 1981 and features 2 levels with separate entrances. The main floor includes an open kitchen adjacent to a small dining area which looks out to a spacious great room with large windows spanning the entire length of the house. The windows provide lots of natural light and beautiful view of the mountain scenery. A wood-burning stove on stone hearth takes the chill off of cool mountain evenings with an ample supply of wood out back for fires. The bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and the small couch opens up to a single bed in the living room. The great room opens onto a balcony that extends the full length of the cabin, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the mountain air and spectacular view to the west with beautiful sunsets over the mountain range. To the front and east are many trees with the feeling of being in a tree house. There is a covered side porch with table, chairs and a porch swing.
Down steps to the lower level to a beautiful wood deck with umbrella table, you enter a private efficiency apartment comprised of a living area with satellite TV, small counter area with sink, small fridge, dining table, comfy reading chair and a full-sized futon couch/bed for lounging or sleeping 1 or a cozy-2 . Down a short hallway there is a full bath with shower and a bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. Note: The apartment accommodates 3 people if one can sleep on the Futon couch.
Phone and Wi-Fi are available throughout the house on both levels (cell phone coverage is sketchy at best).


There is a washing machine and dryer upstairs for guest use and plenty of sheets, pillows and towels. On the side deck upstairs, there is a gas grill which guests may use as well. A small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and coffee pot offer you the flexibility of dining at home or at one of the many incredible restaurants in the area. No air conditioning is necessary because of the cool summer temperatures. Enjoy the birds from the deck in the morning and the lovely sunset in the evening with a nice glass of wine or tea. There is a path in the woods for guests to enjoy.


Unless the entire house is rented, I live in the upstairs and will be around to assist visitors with information about the area making suggestions for restaurants or hiking trails. If desired, there will be a nice breakfast each morning for guests at their request. I enjoy interacting with guests but also respect their privacy if they wish to keep to their selves.


The area is a wonderful place to visit with many different kinds of places to see and experiences from the high-end shops, antiques, and restaurants of Highlands and Cashiers to fun outdoor adventures like Zip line tours at Highlands Aerial Park, waterfall and mountain top hikes, canoeing, rafting, tennis, golf, trout fishing and horseback riding. You will love the diversity of the area and scenic beauty of our mountain paradise. Make reservations early for Total Eclipse of the sun on August 21, 2017. Scaly Mtn. lies in the "path of Totality" which allows for 2-5 minutes of darkness around 2:30 - 2:45 p.m.

Please communicate about your time of arrival. You should attempt to be here before 8 p.m. The house is much easier to find during daylight hours so earlier is better. Please follow the directions that I send, as GPS does not always get you here.
There is a fan and heater available in the bedroom, but please turn it off when you leave.
If possible, I would love to fix you a breakfast at least one morning if you would like. If so, please tell me if you have any allergies ahead of time. I have a cat but he does not go into the apartment, though there have been cats there in the past, in case you have severe allergies.
Please strip beds and leave sheets and towels in a pile in front room when you leave. I appreciate if you would wash any dishes you use.
Quiet hours are after 11 p.m.

The location in Highlands is fantastic with wonderful views of the mountains. The cabin is a great example of pine lumber architecture designed by her father. It is very, comfortable, clean, and she thinks of everything you need for a stay, all the amenities of home. It is close in too the town, waterfalls, and resraurants,yet is still remote, away from other homes,and very quiet. A wonderful relaxing escape from the city. My favorite place to stay in highlands.
Thank you, Ray. I'm glad you enjoyed my apartment and will welcome you back any time next year.

Wonderful owner and home. I'd highly recommend visiting this luuocation if you visit this area and want the best bang for your buck.

Great view of mountains, very nice well eqiped room, very clean, wonderful host.

Sandras place was a great little tuck-away on a very quiet road. Only noises at night was the rain falling and the frogs singing. Although it was August we found the fan and open windows were plenty cool due to the higher elevation. We were gone for most of the day so just needed a place to shower and crash and it served well. Sandra herself was great to deal with. She answered our questions, had pamphlets on hiking trails, recommended a restaurant around the bend that was wonderful (Annies) shared her wine when we didn't have any and brought us zucchini bread on our last day there. If you want something simple but quaint and away from the hustle-bustle this place is for you.
Thanks you two. Will love to have you visit again any time. It's wonderful to have couples that really love to hike and take advantage of what is here in our part of the mountains.

Very secluded place and wonderful host. Thank you Sandra for being so accommodating....i had a great trip.

Beautiful, private setting, and a great place to beat the heat. The deck was WONDERFUL with a mountain view and excellent bird-watching opportunities. A raccoon sauntered past our screen door late one night, to our delight. The location is great, close enough to all the places we like to go in the area. Sandra was friendly and accommodating. She gave us our space, but made sure we had everything we needed. We totally enjoyed our stay!
Thank you so much for the nice review and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay here at Misty Haven. You are welcome back any time!!!

Awesome place! Sandra is a great host!
Thanks Andres!
