Banks Cottage on Holt- an easy walk to town

2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 4 Highlands

Banks Cottage is a quiet little cottage within walking distance (on sidewalks) to town. Two bedrooms and two baths and 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. 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. Both bedrooms have NEW bedding (2023)



Surrounded by beautiful old trees and lush rhododendron and mountain laurels, all of which help keep this home air-conditioned by nature, but for those days when you need a little extra coolness, this home has a new (2023) HVAC system.



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.



MOST HOLIDAYS ARE A ONE-WEEK MINIMUM

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 homeowners 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:

Great Cottage!

by G.S.

Loved the screened porch- we will definitely be back! Although we didn\'t need it, the new HVAC and new bedding was a plus.

Cozy Cottage

We enjoyed our stay at Banks Cottage. It was very cozy and relaxing. The screened porch was wonderful on the one rainy morning we had. Very convenient to everything.
