Property Description

The Zen Den - You've picked the right spot for a relaxing, peaceful stay. As soon as you enter the unassuming entrance, you'll feel the pull of The Zen Den. Renovated with architectural flair, it almost feels like you're in a midtown loft apartment, yet on a smaller scale. The metal stairway leading to the 'children's loft'* separates the living room from the dining area and is one of the first things you notice, along with the wood floors and fireplace separating the kitchen from the dining/ living area with large flat screen TV. Through the kitchen area you can enter the large screened porch with woodburning fireplace, or the bedroom wing, There's a long hallway with bedrooms on the left and windows overlooking the deck on the right side. The first bedroom has a Queen bed and is next to a full bath. The next bedroo has a Queen bed and the third bedroom has two twins. There's also a 'reading nook' with a small TV - a wonderful place to read and nap. Imagine curled up with a good book with the windows open to listen to one of Highlands' famous slow rains. (Best sleep ever!) There is a washer and dryer available located in the basement which is accessed from outdoor deck steps. This home is nestled amongst the trees and feels very private even though there are other homes nearby, so you 're not secluded. THIS HOME DOES NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. Open the windows to let the natural cool mountain air flow through. This home has an occupancy limit of 8 (That would be six people sleeping in regular beds-see below) Queen, Queen, 2 twins *(the 'childen's loft' has 3 twins on the floor, and the 'reading nook' room is also available Online booking has plenty of benefits, but there are a few things that just can’t be handled in bulk- Here are some things we hope you read and understand before booking any of our properties. Some, if not all of this will be in the lease you sign as well. 1-All of our properties are privately owned homes, with each having its own character and idiosyncrasies. Some have nicer linens than others, some are better ‘stocked’ than others, and some of the owners are more particular than others. All are furnished and stocked with at least the basics you will need to enjoy your stay. If there’s something that’s truly lacking, we’ll do our best to accommodate your requests, within reason. One can usually judge a property based on pricing. 2-When third parties list and/or advertise our properties, the pricing you see on their sites may not reflect the same pricing on our site. Usually, the reason is because they calculate their prices by the month to get a nightly rate. The rates you see on sites that offer “Average price of $XXX per night” or “As low as$XXX per night will NOT be the prices you pay unless you are reserving 30 nights or more. We do not ‘have to honor’ those prices, because those prices were produced by those sites to make it easier for you to read, and of course make them more appealing. We have no control of what they print on their sites. 3-There are other charges (read below about other charges- these aren’t hidden fees. Everything will be in your lease for your review BEFORE you pay. 4-Some third party sites ask you to enter your credit card info. Once entered, it shows up on your reservation as XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-0101 – we only see the last 4 digits- that’s for your protection- entering credit card info on public sites that aren’t verified is not secure- please never send this type of information in an email (to anyone). Booking engines such as Homeaway, and through our website are secure. 5-Most of our homes offer rental stays as short as two nights- Here’s how our tried and true rental period policy works: *You may request a reservation for the following year IF you are renting the same property for the same time period and the period is at least 30 nights. That’s the first hurdle, the last hurdle?- we have to check with our owners to make sure the property will be available, and they are willing to rent it for the same terms. *You may also request a reservation for a 30 nights or more if you’ve never stayed in that property before, but we need to check with the current tenants AND the owner. *There are hundreds of people waiting to rent a home for one to three weeks. We open up weekly rentals in February or March depending on the property. Most of these rentals run Saturday to Saturday, but you can request other days as well. As long as it doesn’t leave holes that can’t be filled, we will do our best to accommodate you. *We have even more people wanting to rent two to three nights. Of course, we understand you need to make your plans, airline reservations, etc. but it is very rare that we will rent less than a week unless it is within 21 days of the desired reservation date. Why? We also have renters that wait to the last minute to book a week or month. Most owners generally prefer to rent weeks and months. Holidays and other events such as Christmas, New Years, July 4th, local festivals, etc. are rented on a one week basis (we may offer less nights if it’s within 7-10 days) *Our rental rates are meant to be simple- we show a nightly rate/ weekly rate/ monthly rate. As stated above, just because the verbiage states a nightly rate does not mean you are free to book a nightly rate. Online bookings made that do not fit the above criteria will be cancelled. A nonrefundable reservation fee of $28.00 + NC State tax is charged on ALL reservations.
