The cabin was clean and well stocked. The place itself is private and very comfortably fit everyone for the weekend. Somehow the pictures of this place just don't do it justice. The place felt so inviting and was laid out really well. We had three couples and it was pretty great that everyone could pretty much have a floor to themselves when we wanted to. The main floor was bright and open which served as a perfect gathering space as did the balcony on that level which is enormous! And to top it off there is a fire pit and hot tub down below which can't be beat for enjoying the evening mountains and night time stars. Really excellent place.
And then the views....
Seriously spectacular. From the balcony you can see down and across the mountains and into a meadow that often full of various wildlife. Also wonderful is a great overlook only about mile down the road which is great for a walk in the morning to catch especially glorious sunrises.
If you have any doubts about the drive up, don't worry unless perhaps you come in winter. The drive up is a long set of switchbacks but nothing crazy steep or treacherous. Do drive slow though as there are loose cows and lots of deer roaming around.

The pictures are fantastic, but still so not do this place justice. You have to see it to believe it. The rooms are big and there is lotsa storage area. Plenty of space so you're not on top of each other all the time, but still has a cozy and warm feel. Lotsa games available, as well as a pool table and foosball table so if you got stranded due to weather, there is plenty to do. The grounds are beautiful and fun to explore also. It is definitely a steep, curvy drive up the mountain and the drive way is quite steep so do not go without an AWD. However, it is still close to EVERYTHING.
The only complaints I have are 1) we could not stay longer because real life, and 2) when the snow melted you could see stuff on the grounds that previous tenants left about. Of course, this is not the fault of management or owners, just inconsiderate guests. Still, I really cannot complain about the property and home itself. This cabin is magnificent and we'll worth it.
I really hope we are able to do this again and stay at Highland Mist again. It was a perfect vacation and my children, who had never been out of Florida, got to see and do everything we planned. Thank you so much for making this property available.
