Project Description

Nestle Inn has everything you need to enjoy a luxurious stay in Highlands, NC. This well-appointed home has three bedrooms and four baths, has a split floorplan and is all on one easy living level. Only a few minutes to Main Street, Highlands makes it very easy for several trips a day, but you may find it hard to leave! There are two fire pits on this property, and a front covered porch makes it nice to gather any time of day or enjoy the solitude of the backdrop of lush rhododendrons all to yourself.

The industrial/ farmhouse vibe of Nestle Inn adds to the down-home experience of your stay. The large master bedroom has a King bed and a private full bath. There is a laundry area and a more-than-a-powder-room bathroom located mid-center but tucked away. The great room has a vaulted ceiling with plenty of natural light and has an open kitchen, dining area, and living area. The wood-burning fireplace is just one of the focal points. Other areas of interest are the bar area, the barn doors that open to the pantry, and the Edison lighting over the farmhouse table. There are TVs in the living area and both guest bedrooms with Netflix, HuLu, Disney+, YouTubeTV, and AppleTV.

The guest wing has two bedrooms, each with its own private bath. One has a Queen bed, and the other has two Queen beds. The beds and furnished linens have been as thoughtfully designed and detailed as the rest of this home.

There is plenty of parking for you and your guests. One fire pit is in an alcove of the graveled driveway, and the other is in the side yard. There is a gas grill available. Garbage pickup (using the bear-proof receptacle) is collected on Monday and Thursday of each week. This home has monitored exterior video surveillance,

This home has three bedrooms, and the sleeping occupancy is limited to eight people. Sorry, at this time, no pets are allowed at this property.

There is much to love at this home. We look forward to helping YOU nestle in at Nestle Inn.

Recently, my wife and I discovered a very special place in North Carolina. It’s an incredible Highlands Vacation Rental, newly renovated in a tasteful industrial/farmhouse style, with anything and everything you might need for a relaxing and luxurious respite.

This well-appointed home has three bedrooms and four baths, all on one easy living level, and the split floorplan affords everyone some peace and privacy.

The large master bedroom has a King bed and a private bath with a soaking tub, walk-in tiled shower and double vanities. The guest wing has two bedrooms, each with its own private bath. One has a Queen bed, and the other has two Queen beds. The entirety of this gorgeous home has been thoughtfully designed and detailed, including the beds and furnished linens in these rooms.

The great room encompasses an open kitchen, dining area, and living area, with a vaulted ceiling and plenty of natural light. A wood-burning fireplace, the bar area, barn doors that open to the pantry, and the Edison lighting over the farmhouse table are all focal points that deserve attention.

There are two fire pits for you to enjoy, one in an alcove of the graveled driveway, the other in the side yard. A screened-in, covered front porch makes a lovely dining spot to dig into those steaks you bring in from the gas grill. Or sit on the porch and enjoy a crackling fire in the cool evenings. And it’s all against the backdrop of lush, colorful rhododendrons.

There is a laundry area and a “more-than-a-powder-room” bathroom tucked away mid-center. There’s also an alcove set up as an office if you really need to do some work, with the half bath close by.

Plenty of parking for you and your guests. No need to worry about night “visitors.” There is monitored exterior video surveillance, and the garbage receptacles are, yes, bear-proof!


This location couldn’t be better. You’re only a few minutes to Main Street, Highlands for 5-star restaurants and shopping. Into nature and hiking? You’re within a mile of the Nantahala National Forest, Highlands Biological Station, Brushy Face Preserve, and Whiteside Mountain, which boasts the highest cliffs in Eastern North America. Art your thing? Check out the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts, Highlands Playhouse and The Martin-Lipscomb Performing Arts Center. Highlands Country Club and Cliffside Lake Recreation are close by. And if you happen to be enchanted by waterfalls, this area is absolutely for you. You have Bridal Veil Falls, Dry Falls, and Glen Falls.

50th Birthday at Nestle Inn

We had a wonderful 4-night trip celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday! Nestle Inn is the perfect place for a group of 8. We had plenty of room, and the 4 bathrooms were ideal. The house has absolutely everything you need! It is so close to town; making shopping, eating, and the spa so convenient. We truly enjoyed our first trip to the Highlands and can’t wait to return!

What a great place : bright, clean, comfortable, private and wonderful outdoor space! Perfect porch for taking in the sights and sounds of the beautiful nature all around you. The owners thought of everything to make your stay special… even down to furnishing matches to use for the fire pits.


The Perfect Place to Nestle Inn

Set back off one of the many amazing scenic drives and just a minute from the heart of downtown Highlands you find a wonderful property, perfect for a weekend away or an extended stay vacay! An absolutely charming home with all the amenities: gorgeous and cozy living area; spacious, welcoming kitchen; and large bedrooms with comfy private baths, met all of our needs. The cozy fire pits (yes, two) and chairs located off the easy access driveway, surrounded by budding rhododendrons, are the perfect spots at the end of a day of exploring that make you want to kick back, relax, put the cell phones away, and just “be” in nature! This group would go back in a minute for seconds of this perfect place to “nestle inn.” Thanks for a fabulous visit!

I just stayed at this place two weeks ago and I don’t even know where to start. House is super clean and the host has done a great job with everything in the house to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. You could not duplicate the views and location of the house. It is perfect for a family gateway and there are so many thinks to do in town as well. I would highly recommend this place.

My family stayed at Nestle Inn for five nights in February. We felt so lucky to stay at such a beautiful cabin! These owners have thought about everything you could possibly need during your stay! The kitchen table was such a treat to sit and talk during our meals! We made a fire in the fire pit and roasted hotdogs and made s’mores!! So close to town and so many hikes near by!! We will definitely be back to Nestle Inn!

This was an amazing place to stay and my girlfriend and me lucked out and got about 6-8 inches of snow while we were up there. The cabin was extremely clean and absolutely stunning on the inside. All of the furniture was comfy and a nice fire place made the cozy cabin feel like a home away from home. The town is less than 5 minutes away and there were so many wonderful restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this cabin and will be staying there in the future.
