Jewel Of The Woods: Mountain Views, AC, Sauna, Wifi, On 33 Acre Gentleman's Farm

Riverside Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Please note that we can not accept cats and can only accept up to 2 small (under 30 lbs) well behaved dogs or one medium (30-70 lbs) dog with payment of $100 pet fee.

You will love this spacious, secluded gem. Seven miles outside the charming village of Highlands and worlds away from the stress of city life, this lovely home is a welcome retreat. Situated among trees on a 33 acre gentleman's farm, it has a wonderful sense of privacy. Built in 2004 utilizing native timber to compliment its natural setting, this lovely home seamlessly combines elegance with rustic charm. Rise in the morning to a lovely view over fields and mountains. Spend the day antique shopping in Highlands, hiking to a local waterfall, or just lounging on the porch with a good book. In the evening enjoy a private sauna, a relaxing soak in the oversize whirlpool bath, or a glass of fine wine beside a crackling fire. Then slip between luxurious sheets on a King tempurpedic bed and drift off to sleep while listening to the soft sounds of crickets in the woods, or even the occasional far off call of a great horned owl or gentle trilling of a whip-poor-will.

Beautiful pine board finish interiors and lovely oak floors are found throughout the house. Take in the mountain views from the wrap around porch, the covered outside dining area, the entire main level and even the master bedroom!

The main level features a Great Room with vaulted ceilings and a commanding floor to ceiling fireplace with stunning custom handmade tiles framed with rock work. A pull-out entertainment center with 40" flatscreen TV can be the center of attention when desired or closed off when not. The main floor has a full bath with shower and washer/dryer as well as a half bath with pedestal sink topped by a hand-thrown ceramic basin and large antique stained glass window.

The modern fully appointed kitchen is open to the great room. The kitchen boasts a gas range, two ovens, microwave, separate ice maker, dishwasher, and beautiful Silestone counter tops. The range is situated in the kitchen's large central island, which also has seating for 5 making it an excellent hub for socializing. For more elegant dining there is the 8 seat dining room adjacent to the great room with a handsome Ralph Lauren Danby dining table, or enjoy the air and the view from the 4 seat outside covered dining area. The back porch has both a gas grill and a Big Green Egg brand charcoal grill with complimentary charcoal provided.

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms both with private baths. Both upstairs bedrooms have very comfortable king beds with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The "Senior" master bedroom has a two person sauna, private sun deck, and ample closet space. It also has an en-suite private bathroom featuring a 6 jet two-person tub, double head shower, lovely double sink vanity, custom tile work and bidet. The "Junior" master bedroom also has a private en-suite bathroom with shower and custom tile work.

Downstairs you will find two bedrooms, one with a King bed and one with a queen and a double bed. The downstairs bathroom is shared between them. We also have a Ping Pong table downstairs to be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

The Jewel of the Woods combines the tranquility of the forest, the simple pleasures of the pastoral homestead, and the luxuries of a modern home into an experience that is hard to rival.

It is a Jewel
This is a beautiful cabin! We were so impressed with the cleanliness & condition of the cabin, the space and the amenities. The owner was really kind and made sure we had proper directions, and checked in half way through our stay to make sure all was well - so nice!! The house is fully stocked with what you need to make all of your meals, bathroom basics and feel comfortable and relaxed. It is just such a cool place!! The drive there is amazing - especially if you're from flat Florida! There is a beautiful town nearby called Highlands which offers food and shopping both high end and touristy! The people are friendly there too. We hope to be back soon!

Beautiful House
Our stay at Jewel of the Mountain was fantastic! Everything you need is provided and the house was beautifully clean and well stocked. The fireplace was the best part and Rick has plenty of firewood available to use. Would definitely recommend this home and we will be back!
