Project Description

Christmas Cottage is for our more discerning guests who want to enjoy Highlands without sacrificing the nicer things you have in your own home. The home is meticulously maintained, the designer furnishings are comfortable,  and rest assured you will sleep in luxury with the finest linens available. 2022 updates bring an even better experience with more light, open spaces, and a glassed-in porch to let the beautiful outdoors seem closer, and all from the main living area.

This two-level home is perfect for a couple, two couples, or a small multi-generational family. Each level is easily accessed from separate exterior entrances or by using the interior stairs.

Less than a five-minute drive to everything Highlands has to offer, including some of the best dining and shopping opportunities of anywhere around. Nature lover? There are nature trails, hikes, fishing, and waterfalls all within an easy drive from Christmas Cottage.

This home has paved-to-the-door, easy access with a U-shaped driveway, and a two-car garage available. Complimenting the home is lovely landscaping with perennials, shrubs, and trees.

The main level offers a large family room with comfortable seating, a dining area, a wood-burning fireplace, a TV, and access to one of the four porches. The well-equipped kitchen is open to the family room. There’s a home office with a half-bath off of the family room. The Mst. bedroom is ensuite, and has a TV and access to a covered porch. The laundry room is on the main level by the garage entrance.

The lower level has another family room with a wood-burning fireplace, dining area, and full kitchen and has access to a covered porch. There are two bedrooms on this level, one has a King bed, private bath, and access to a small porch, and the other has two twins.

Amenities include:
3 bedrooms (King, King, 2 twins)
3.5 baths (1.5 baths on the main level, 2 baths on the lower level)
Two full kitchens

Each level can be accessed by using exterior entrances or the interior stairs
Easy paved-to-the-door access and U-shaped driveway make it super easy

Four covered outdoor porch areas

This home has a two-night minimum, EXCEPT for HOLIDAYS AND SOME LOCAL EVENTS, which may have a 7-night minimum (even if the booking calendar allows you to book for less)
The rental app you are using may allow you to make two or three-night rentals during these times, but that doesn’t mean the reservation will be honored.

From the property manager: If you are using a third-party site (like VRBO) please understand that we use third party sites (like VRBO) in order to gain renters who may not have found our company through our website. All renters, no matter where they start will sign a vacation rental lease. It doesn’t matter if you have already read, or agreed to any other kind of lease through the third party site (like VRBO). All vacation rental leases adhere to the NC Vacation Rental Agreement Act. When you sign the lease, which is between you (as renter) and Chambers Realty & Vacation Rentals (as Landlord on behalf of the property owner), you are agreeing to our terms. You will not be charge by us until you have seen the lease. If you have any questions about our policies or our lease you need to contact us, not the third party site (like VRBO). It is our full intent to retain any renters gained by using third party sites (like VRBO) for future rentals, and possibly as future home owners as well. We enjoy having renters for the long haul, and have been renting to some for over 30 years. Come join them for the best of Highlands.

Like all of the properties we manage, your reservation is contingent on being accepted by the owner or the property manager on behalf of the owner. We follow all guidelines with Federal and NC Fair Housing Laws, and will not discriminate against:

* Religion
* Sex/Gender

Christmas Cottage

Christmas Cottage was elegant and comfortable. It was impeccably neat. I loved the amount of dresser drawers available so I could empty my suitcase and live as if at home. Each level had a deck surrounded by beautiful, flowering landscaping with views.

Christmas Cottage was everything and more than advertised! Our family had a wonderful time on the porch during the day and by the fire at night. The kitchen was very well stocked for any type of cook which is important especially now when we are cooking more these days. The home was clean and beds were comfortable. Location was very convenient to town and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. We will for sure plan to come back to Christmas Cottage soon!
