Project Description

Whittle Pines
Welcome to Whittle Pines, a registered historical home that’s been in the same family since 1926. The home, updated and maintained over the years, still preserves the history and character of a different era in Highlands.
The main level has a large living area with cable TV and lots of room for gathering friends and family. There’s a separate dining room (seats 6-8) next to the well-equipped kitchen. The main level bedroom is handicap accessible and offers a King bed, room A/C unit, TV and full bath with walk in shower. There’s a nice sized back door entry/sun room accessed by ramp that has a half bath and laundry. Covered front porch with rockers overlooks expansive lawn.
Upper level has a hallway bath with an antique tub (no shower there), bedroom (#2) with Queen bed, another bedroom (#3) with two twins, and the #4 bedroom, considered to be the second Mst. BR has a Queen bed with TV, and full bath (walk in shower- no tub)
The property is protected by lush rhododendrons, trees and bushes which form a natural boundary for privacy. The large lawn is perfect for a picnic on the grounds, exploring, or a game of badminton, or sitting around the fire pit telling stories…

Whittle is a leisurely walk to Main Street, restaurants, live theater, library, churches and lots of unique shopping experiences.

House is a historic gem, in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to downtown. With all the appointments of a legacy home, I highly recommend this property. Property is large and well separated from neighbors. Kitchen is very well appointed, though dish washer was broke on our visit but didn’t hinder our stay at all. Our visit was during October and the cool weather didn’t require us to use the a/c, so we can’t comment on that though the heaters worked great in the evening.

The house was perfect, especially the location. We were here over the July 4th holiday and watched the fireworks from the back porch! We will rent this cabin again.

We loved the big yard. My grandchildren ran all around the property. Home is a beautiful old home located very close to the city. We enjoyed walking to the downtown Main Street area. The negative about the house was the gas/kerosene system. It got down to 28 degrees on Sunday nite but we were afraid to run the old heater system after we went to bed so we nearly froze. Need to get a central electric heat system and move into the 1970’s ( which is the time when most home had central heat installed). Also, the family photos displayed in the upstairs bedroom should come down if a vacation rental. Don’t want to see somebody’s photos from 40 years ago.

Cozy cottage- excellent location
Our group loved the Whittle Farmhouse. We were in town for the Food & Wine Festival. The location was perfect. The house was cozy and cute. Not luxurious but perfect for a mountain weekend.
