Whispering Woods Walk to town from this 3 BR/2.5 bath cabin in the woods.

3 Bedrooms 2.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 6 Highlands

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- a great 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 may not be 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.





No matter how you found Whispering Woods in your search for the best Highlands vacation rental, it is our full intent to retain any renters for future rentals, and possibly as future home owners 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.

Cozy home close to shops

by Carolyn H.
We love to rent Whispering Woods. It is to feel at home and such a great location.

Very Nice Home Near Town

We liked it so much that we stayed an extra week! It was missing a gas grill (charcoal grill was provided) so we purchased a simple camping grill in town. Worked out perfectly well (and no we didn't leave it outside to attract bears!).

Fabulous mountain retreat

by Rev. Mary Bea S.
We loved the privacy of this well-appointed home. The screened-in porch is surrounded by trees and we loved reading and listening to the birds in that spot. Wonderful hikes and restaurants and shopping very close by. A true gem!

A Summer Getaway

by Lyn H.

We really enjoyed our stay at Whispering Woods. The location is walkable to downtown Highlands and the floorplan of the home works well. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Loved having a pantry! The only negative would be the condition of the wicker porch furniture, which is falling apart and needs to be replaced.

Thank you for your review and high rating!

I wanted to let you know that the owners listened to your comments! In November 2023, all of the furniture on the covered porch was replaced with a very nice, comfortable seating arrangement.

Felt like home!

by Clay S.
This home was done perfect. Everything was so cozy we felt right at home. For a gas log fire place, it heated the entire house! Close proximity to downtown. Would stay here again anytime!

Very nice house and setting

Really enjoyed the house and the screened in porch. Beautiful setting.
Towel rack in master bath was coming off the wall. Most of the towels and the kitchen rug had stains.
