About the property

On Cedar Creek within walking distance to Lake Glenville. Conveniently located 5 minutes from center of Cashiers.

Two porches overlooking your own private waterfall with an observation deck actually over the falls. Stunning!

Gorgeous extra large stone terrace with fire pit, all new professionally designed landscaping with extensive natural moss ground cover. Fantastical faux bois bench at the top of the falls for relaxed viewing.

All new bedding. All new towels. All new dinnerware, flatware, and glassware. New dishwasher and new double convection oven in upstairs kitchen.

Freshly painted inside and out. Wood burning stove, new toilets, new hardsurface floors, and stylish furnishings.

Because of the elevation and cool temperatures, this home is not air conditioned.

Wifi. Apple TV/Netflix/Amazon Prime/DVD

The Wifi is spotty with frequent outage.

Two car carport.

No pets due to the very fragile, natural moss landscape.

More beautiful than I imagined

  • 5 of 5

The house is fine ... the grounds are extraordinary. I travel frequently, and this home is sitting right in the middle of nature's playground with one of the most spectacular views I've ever had. We played in the creek, caught small speckled trout below the waterfalls and marveled at the scenery. If you want a high-end house, this place is probably not for you. If you want a magnificent chance to enjoy the beauty of NC right outside your back door, book it now.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! I've been bringing family and friends here since 2014. I look forward to this trip every year. There is always plenty of room for my guests, usually six. The waterfall off the back of the house is truly breathtaking! This year we rented a pontoon boat on the lake right down the street for an afternoon. Fun, fun, fun! And, the owners are delightful. I'm already booking a second trip this season.

Arguably The Most Beautiful Setting In All of Cashiers / Highlands

  • 5 of 5

"Beautiful waterfall location" is an understatement and the pictures in this listing DO NOT do this property justice. We've been traveling to the Cashiers / Highlands area for over eight years and David's property is by far one of (if not THE) most beautiful places in the region.

A few key benefits:

1. There's a large carport for two cars at the top of the driveway.

2. There are FOUR decks, one of which sits DIRECTLY over the waterfall. We LOVED having our morning coffee on this deck.

3. You can actually LIGHT-UP the waterfall at night using a remote control.

4. The bedding is extremely comfortable and the space is adorned with cool lighting fixtures.

5. The landscaping is lush and enchanting. There are stone walking paths all throughout and direct access to the waterfall.

Best of all, David is very communicative and extremely responsive. The checkin / out were seamless.

Relaxing place to stay in mountains

  • 4 of 5

Incredible private waterfall right outside back porch! The house is not fancy, but has all that is needed for a relaxing get-away...and weather permitting you will want to spend all of your time on the back porch overlooking the waterfall. David, the owner, was extremely helpful with the check-in process and explained everything we needed to know about the house (plus, all of it listed on the fridge in case we forgot something). Minutes to Cashiers and Highlands for shopping/restaurants, plus Glenville Lake right around the corner. House has wifi, but no cell phone service unless you have AT&T (but we didn't mind since the purpose of the trip was to get away : ).

Stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

Pictures of the property give you an idea of how beautiful this property is but they cannot do it justice. If there had been a hammock on the porches I would have never left the porch. You are on top of a series of waterfalls and pools. There are a number of porches , all just feet away from the water. Nice gas grill. Grounds are immaculate. Very private and quiet. We could fly fish right out the back door. You can hear the waterfalls in the bedrooms. The house is nice but we did not spend much time inside. Kitchen up and downstairs and are very well stocked. We had three couples there and did not feel crowded. House was very clean. Owner was a great guy. Very helpful with all the local knowledge you would ever need. Place was so comfortable and conducive to fellowship we ditched a lot of our dining plans and cooked and dined on the porch. Great location ; minutes from Cashiers, hiking , fishing, dining and shopping. We will be back.
