  • Great little place in Nature


    I can’t recommend this cabin enough. At first glance it was a little ways from Highlands but the property made the short drive more than worth it. Beautiful yard with a clear stream. Well maintained and equipped. The interior is cozy with a great view from the living area. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook nice meals.

  • Beautiful little property


    Quiet and well decorated cabin was just what we were looking for. The owners were so nice, and the cabin had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. We did notice a slight smell that permeated everything in the cabin, and which was on our clothes that we brought home, which detracted from the experience a bit. Still a great place overall.

  • Great Weekend Getaway


    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Green Acres. The cabin location is perfect for easy access to a multitude of hiking trails and great food. The cabin itself is well maintained, clean, and comfortable. The owners have gone above and beyond to make it nice for guests. We especially enjoyed watching Betty White and friends each morning while having coffee on the porch. We would not hesitate to stay at Green Acres again.

  • Picturesque retreat


    Green Acres was truly a magical piece of heaven nestled in the gorgeous NC mountains. A special treat was the tranquil creek running parallel to the spacious grassy knoll at the base of the property. The cabin was surrounded by all of mother natures beauty, towering trees, festive birds, and fanciful bees. Watching the Hummingbirds enjoy the nectar feeder attached to the large picture window overlooking the estate was truly a delight as we became one with nature. This lovely retreat has a well stocked kitchen for delicious meal prep, a generous supply of paper products, toiletries, linens, and many other extras. To our surprise the cabin was artfully equipped with oodles of mind engaging puzzles, books, games, and charming eye stimuli throughout. The tasteful decor was exceptional! Genuine thought and placement of each curated item made this truly one of the most charming homes we’ve ever stayed at. I soaked in the enchanted surroundings and delve into many of the provided books that sparked joy and harmony in my life. I’m eternally grateful for such a memorable stay and look forward to a return visit!

  • Good visit!


    The house is very clean and the host are very welcoming and willing to assist. We did not have any problems finding the place or getting in. Plenty of room for 4 people and space to move around. It is a 15-20 min drive into Highlands and several trails. We liked the accessibility. Really good place to visit and would visit again!
