  • Absolutely wonderful


    This house is wonderful. Location is great - super close to downtown Highlands but very quiet and serene. You can't walk to downtown because of the mountain roads but that is the case pretty much anywhere in this area, but it's only a 2 minute drive to downtown and the closest grocery store. The house has everything you need and feels cozy and comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and there were all the condiments and spices that some other rentals lack. Coffee maker is a Keurig and the pods were provided, but there was also a regular brew option for those that want to make their own pot with other coffee. The patio was a wonderful spot to watch the birds and enjoy the morning coffee or evening wine and conversation.

    We had great communication with the owners representative and the whole process was very smooth. The owner appears to have a small dog and there were some evidence of dog hair which didn't bother us at all since we are dog-people but I mention it just in case someone has a severe allergy.

  • Perfect Spot!!


    This was such a great house and was perfect for a quick get away to Highlands! Was minutes from downtown and yet you felt tucked away in a quiet beautiful neighborhood that was the perfect setting for comfortable relaxation! Our contact Janet, was wonderful with communication and very thoughtful. Knew we were arriving late and made sure lights were on to welcome us. We were also welcomed in with a yummy homemade cake! 10/10 would recommend!! :)

  • Highlands fall vacation


    This house is wonderful!! Beautifully decorated and so comfortable. On a very peaceful dead end street. Large porch on back of the house overlooks a large wooded area. The house is just minutes to town with plenty of shopping and restaurant choices. The host is very gracious snd easy to contact. Great place in Highlands!!
