  • Highlands hideaway yet it’s as close to downtown as you can get


    Upon arrival you’re greeted by a very welcoming neighborhood and large parking area for the house. Everything inside the house is very intentional and we were happily greeted by a nice welcome note and bottle of wine! They supply anything you would ever need for your stay. It’s odd to say but they supply the “right” amount of things without stuffing the house with too much stuff. We were looking forward to the amazing outdoor space and fire pit but unfortunately we were there during the Countywide burn ban so we settled for the interior fireplace which was just as cozy and inviting. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Perfect location; perfect place!


    Stayed at this house for four nights while in town for a wedding. Location could not have been better, had everything we needed and then some.

    Loved the open kitchen and living area, amazing deck, fire pit, and little stream. Beds were comfortable and with plenty of pillows for us and our two guests.

    Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great place to stay in Highlands. So glad we found it.

    Pictures are accurate. This is centrally located on a side street perfect for walks.

  • Beautiful setting!


    My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Highlands cottage and we can’t recommend it enough. The kitchen was well appointed with all the cookware one would need, the outdoors was stocked with wood for the fire pit and the deck had a smart TV to watch all the college football we could want. There was even a nicely printed book with home instructions, sightseeing info and photos of the surrounding area. A lot of thought was put into making guests feel at home and it was greatly appreciated. If we’re ever in the area again, we would definitely stay at the Highland’s cottage and highly recommend it to others too.

  • Exceeded expectations in Highlands


    We were impressed by the photos of the Highlands house when we rented it. However, after arriving, the house exceeded our expectations. It was furnished with comfortable, attractive furniture. The kitchen was well-stocked, including two coffee makers. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. The house was very clean! And, every light switch was clearly labeled, which was a nice touch.

    The cottage was situated on a beautiful lot in a quiet neighborhood, with easy access to downtown.

    If we return to Highlands, we will definitely try to rent this same cottage.

    Thanks for a great experience!
