  • Great cottage just a short distance to downtown


    Had a great stay over Presidents’ Day weekend. Made great use of the fireplace most of the weekend with the chilly temps outside. Very clean and great communication with the owner. Much appreciated.

  • Perfect house


    I had three friends come for 2 nights at this property. It was very clean when we checked in, and it had everything we might have needed there. We had a little trouble getting the door to unlock, but the property manager helped us with that. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Highlands escape


    House was outstanding! We had a wonderful relaxing couple of days. Great location- very short walk to town. Quiet neighborhood. Plenty of space to spread out. We will definitely come back!
