Maison Rouge, Mid-Century-Modern Swiss Chalet on Beautiful Mirror Lake

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 6 Highlands

Looking for a special place to get away together and enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains? Or perhaps reunite with family or good friends? Does the idea of an intimate and quaint Swiss Chalet on a private wooded acre of lush rhododendrons and mountain laurel with enviable unobstructed lake views inspire you? If so, then Maison Rouge on Mirror Lake-just moments from the Aspen-like downtown of Highlands, NC, is awaiting your arrival. Come and enjoy intimate dinners, the warmth of two fireplaces, and wine and cheese on one of the decks, terraces, or balconies. Mountain strolls, magnificent waterfalls, boat rides, and unforgettable views will create forever beautiful memories for you and your family.



Maison Rouge’s main level features a well-equipped galley kitchen, dining and living areas. The living room opens to a large wrap-around deck overlooking peaceful Mirror Lake, and features a stacked-stone gas-fired fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD/VHS player with 5-disk CD player and AM/FM radio. Unlike many homes in the mountains, Maison Rouge has fast, reliable Wi-Fi Internet service and is wired for cable. Maison Rouge has central air conditioning, although you may not need it as much as you thought you would.



There are two bedrooms and one bath on the main level. The master bedroom has a King bed and the guest bedroom has a Queen bed.



The kitchen is fully equipped with under-cabinet lighting, oven/range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, glassware, a complete set for 12 of antique English china, as well as bakeware, copper-clad Revere Ware pots and pans, a stock pot, and a few pieces of 100 year old seasoned cast iron cookware.



The upper level has two bedrooms with one full bath in between. Each upper level bedroom has two twins and access to a small balcony-one overlooking Cullasaja Drive, and the other overlooking the lake.



The lower level features a family room with flat-screen TV, gas fireplace, and fully equipped entertainment kitchen with two sets of French doors opening onto a lakeside terrace with gas grill, and “al fresco” dining area. Also, a powder room, shower area, and laundry.



All three levels of Maison Rouge have access to lakeside decks, porches, and/or balconies. There’s a nice grassy area-great for play or lawn games, and there’s a flat-bottomed boat available as well (life jackets and oars are provided).



The easy-entry semi-circular driveway parks up to four cars. For your protection and safety, there is motion-activated outdoor lighting and one exterior security camera by the front stairs.



The property is less than a one-mile walk to beautiful downtown Highlands with world class shopping and five-star dining venues. The Plateau Greenway trail begins less than ¼ mile from the property. Over five miles of sidewalks and natural trails are free to the public daily from sunrise to sunset.



This home has a three-night minimum, except for HOLIDAYS AND SOME LOCAL EVENTS which could be longer.



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.
