Description & Details of Miss Rebecca's Cottage (In-Town Historic House)
Nestled in one of the best locations in Highlands NC, Miss Rebecca's Cottage is secluded in town on one acre right next to the Sunset Rocks hiking area (a short walk to a beautiful overlook), across the street from Highlands Nature Center (with native plant gardens, museum, and lake), and one-third mile from Main Street's famous shopping and dining.

Newly renovated and decorated with family heirloom antiques, nice linens, and fine accessories, Miss Rebecca's is an historic cottage that was once an ice house, then a servant's house belonging to the family of Rebecca Harrison whose former estate, Harvilla, is next door. The lush property is secluded from the quiet street but grassy and open around the house and the 24 windows let in lots of light.

The main part of the house has been opened into a great room with a wood-burning stone fireplace, full well-equipped kitchen, and a comfortable seating area with lots of windows. The living room/dining room and kitchen are a deep red with off-white trim and feature comfortable seating in rich plaids and florals with deep blues and forest greens. The three bedrooms (two with queen-size beds and one with two twin beds) are a soft, restful peach with floral fabrics in subtle greens and blues with rose and peach accents. The furnishings, artwork, and accessories have been collected over a lifetime. Enjoy TV/VCR, telephone, CDs and tapes to play, radio, puzzles, games, books, and magazines.

With a total square footage of 1300 feet, it is cozy but open and suitable for either a family of six or equally appealing for a couple wanting a private, special occasion getaway. If additional bedrooms are needed, rooms may be taken at the owner's bed and breakfast, Colonial Pines Inn, half a mile away.

Highlands, at an elevation of 4118', offers a cool summer climate with an average high in July of 77 degrees and an average low of 57, and lots of live theater, music, and outdoor activities from which to choose. The fall colors of Leaf Season bring excitement and crowds, especially on weekends; but the quiet evergreen beauty of winter and the gentle unfolding of spring offer a time to enjoy Highlands at a slower pace. Shops and restaurants are open year round and there is a winter/spring theater season as well as summer.

There is no better place to experience the beauty and mystery of the mountains in any season, and there is no house in Highlands more personal, charming, and well located than Miss Rebecca's Cottage.
