  • Lovely stay


    My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay. Very clean and looks just like the pictures! Loved the view. Driveway was a little step, but that is expected with any mountain house. Was tight fitting in a bigger truck( f250) but we still fit....we just backed up the entire driveway because we would not have been able to turn around very easily with guest in the other parking spots in the front of the house. Overall, we loved our stay and definitely would come back.

  • Awesome retreat


    Enjoyed the stay - loved the view! The drive into the Highlands is an amazing treat for outdoor enthusiasts. The driveway leading up to the property is narrow and step so be prepared for that!!

  • Beautiful but...Not a great place to drive up to/park at


    This place was pretty - when we pulled in, we were confused - it's two rentals in the same building and ours was on bottom floor (probably my misunderstanding!) The drive up to the house is a very steep, one-lane gravel road. It was pretty intimidating driving up it at night because it was pitch black - plus there is a sharp left turn uphill to the house. The parking in the back was hard to get into/out of - you can only pull straight in and then you have to back up down the steep hill (unless your car is super small and you get it turned around somehow). When someone is parked outside the upstairs rental (which is the view you get in the photos online) it makes it impossible to turn around, but when that spot was empty I was able to maneuver it. The view was gorgeous and if I didn't have to leave the whole time (which we had to because there is not a full kitchen, so you can't cook anything other than microwavable food), it would be a great place to stay. Very clean - comfortable bed.

    Hi Stephanie, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay overall and the beautiful views, but we're sorry you had difficulty parking your vehicle. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We want all our guests to feel prepared to enjoy their stay so before each guest's arrival, we email a Welcome Book, which notes that larger vehicles would be difficult to park.
    - The upstairs is not a rental; it is our summer home.
    - As explained in the description of the property and the Welcome Book, there is only a microwave oven. We would never try to mislead our guests as our goal is always to provide an ideal stay for all guests.
    The owners truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!
