would be, and more. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms. This rustic lodge has all

the necessities you need to enjoy life in the mountains. This cabin is the REAL DEAL,

mountain adventures, a summer camp for families and adults alike, or a quiet

getaway —with the comforts of home!

waterfalls in the vicinity . . . Watch the dive-bombing hummingbirds . . . Read a great

Beautiful Hidden Gem

by Mary Elizabeth H.
We had the best time during our stay at Heardlot Lodge. Close enough to Cashiers and Highlands to enjoy both communities, and far enough away that we could relax in the peace of Whiteside Cove. The kids were especially delighted with the proximity to Cashiers Sliding Rock, and the grownups enjoyed being unplugged for a few days.

Cabin in the woods

by pablo v.
This was a beautiful surprise. The house was very clean and with all that is necessary. The only thing I would improve is the lightning because in the evenings it was dark in the common aéreas. And maybe have something for the mosquitoes or little bugs.
