Asheville Escapes


Asheville Escapes offers Highwoods

Developed to nurture your spirit and provide everything you will need for the ultimate relaxing retreat. Highwoods is ideal for a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or a tranquil retreat for groups up to eight.

Choose from our two rentals Highwoods Gardens and Highwoods Cabin. Highwoods Gardens has two homes rented together for your privacy — the Main House and the Country Cottage. Together they sleep eight comfortably — although arrangements can be made for groups of ten.

Highwoods Cabin is a cozy mountain home for up to eight people.

Below the homes, the two properties share the beautifully landscaped common park we call Highwoods Park. Discounts are available for larger groups to rent both properties together.

You are ideally located for day trips to all of the many THINGS TO DO in Asheville and most everything else that Western North Carolina offers to visitors. We are only 14 miles from Asheville (about a 20-minute drive). Add another 5 minutes to get to the Biltmore Estate or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Highwoods land protects the watershed for the extensive valleys below. You are surrounded by thousands of acres of magnificent wilderness, open fields and farmland where people smile and raise their hand to say hello as they pass, and are always there to lend a hand or tell you a good story.

If you like to hike, bike or take late afternoon strolls, the quiet roads and off-road trails will give you endless miles of choices.

When you return to Highwoods at the end of the day, you arrive in another world. You are taken away by the sound of water falling, and the beauty and power of nature. Many people who have experienced the profound sense of peace consider it a spiritual event.

The art and decor at Highwoods Cabin has been collected from around the world, which we think you will find both interesting and inviting. At Highwoods Gardens the house and cottage are less than six years old and were newly furnished in 2013. With unique architecture and upscale accommodations, Highwoods Gardens has been designed to exceed what any traveler would expect in a mountain retreat.

Whichever property you choose, we want you to feel that this is truly YOUR mountain vacation home here in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains — and so many of our guests say that’s exactly how they feel!
