Project Description

Whispering Woods is a two-level mountain cabin with today’s style set in a lush forest of rhododendrons. Walk to town and everything Highlands has to offer. Main level offers an open floor plan with a kitchen, living and dining area, laundry, and half bath. The master bedroom has a king bed and private bath. The screened porch overlooks native rhododendrons, which also helps provide Whispering Woods a private setting. The upper level has two bedrooms and one full bath. One bedroom has a Queen bed, and the other has a queen bed and one twin- perfect for visiting guest overflow. Enjoy the cool mountain air on the screened porch, a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon glass of wine, and always with a good book. Whispering Woods proves to be the quintessential home base for discovering Highlands and the surrounding mountain happenings.

This property is IN town, but the setting is serene and private. Easy walking distance to Harris Lake- an excellent place for a small picnic or to watch the ducks and geese. Another few hundred steps will lead you to the library, churches, and Main Street, and don’t forget about The Nature Center or hiking up Sunset Rock- you can look down over the whole town from there.

Rest assured, almost everything is within 5-10 minutes if you must take your car. The restaurants in Highlands range from pick-up food (there are no fast food chain restaurants) to 4-star dining places. The shopping has you covered with varied items from T-shirts to furs, trinkets to high-fashion, fine jewelry, collectibles for your home, and furnishings.

There are NO discounts on the nightly rate for this home.
The gas-log fireplace is not operable and is not included in the rental.
This home has a three-night minimum, except for HOLIDAYS AND SOME LOCAL EVENTS.

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.

Very nice house that is walking distance to downtown while providing privacy from neighbors. Awesome screened in porch. House has updated bathrooms, furnishings and appliances.

Chambers Realty is a pleasure to deal with and provided welcoming southern hospitality. Great restaurant referrals.

Only negative comment- wish master bedroom bed mattress was more firm.

Great House but not Through VRBO

The property was wonderful. The house and the setting were beautiful. The screened in porch afforded us many enjoyable hours. However, even though the house is listed on VRBO, once you book it you are directed to a local Realty Company. VRBO then charges a service fee. The price on VRBO was not accurate. It was more expensive than listed. It would have been better had I booked through local real estate company that actually manages the property and saved the VRBO service fee.. The local real estate company was excellent to deal with.

Great stay!

My wife and toddler stayed with my parents in this home. It was a great house with room for more people; amazing setting tucked back into nature but with all amenities you’d need. Only gripe (very minor) was having to drive the trash 15 minutes away on checkout day, but other than that minor out of the way trip it was great. Would definitely stay here again!
