Banks Cottage is a quiet little cottage within walking distance (on sidewalks) of town. With two bedrooms and two baths all on one easy level, this cottage is the perfect place to call home for a week, or even a month or more.
Comfortable screened porch to enjoy the outdoors- and what a perfect place for a cup of morning coffee, or an afternoon glass of wine and a good book. The living area has a native stone wood-burning fireplace* with a gas starter, Flat screen TV with basic Cable TV, WiFi, and comfortable seating. The open kitchen is inviting and updated to make it easier for your cooking, dining, and entertaining. The main bedroom has a queen bed and private bath, the guest bedroom has a queen bed. A second full bath is in the hallway. The washer/dryer area is convenient to both bedrooms and bathrooms.
Surrounded by beautiful old trees and lush rhododendron and mountain laurels, all of which help keep this home air-conditioned by nature, but if you must, a new Central HVAC was added in 2023 as well as new bedding.
There are family games available for the days you need to stay inside, and the Holt Knob area has several little lanes that are great for walking when you want a nice, close hike. The town of Highlands has lots to explore including The Bascom , shopping and dining in of the eclectic places, more hiking on the Greenway Trails, catching a movie or live show at the Highlands Playhouse or Performing Arts Center, and swimming at the year-round heated pool at the Recreation Center, and that is just the beginning.
Banks Cottage is a Highlands Vacation Rental that can be rented for as few as two or three nights, but you better reserve a little longer because once you’re here, you won’t want to leave.
