  • Beautiful Spot


    This cabin was perfect for us! We loved that it was from the '40s but completely renovated with modern and stylish kitchen and bathrooms. The old fireplace and chimney gave it charm! The deck is fabulous, perfect for breakfast, happy hour, and any other time. Highly recommend.

  • Charming cabin close to town


    We were two couples in town for the weekend and had a blast. Highlands is a great town and this cabin was the perfect home base for all our activities

  • 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.
