  • Week long stay with our dogs


    Property as described. Very clean. Comfortable. Enjoyed the decks and views, just wish we didnt have so much rain to enjoy it even more! (The covered patio doesnt protect from rain well). Close proximity to town, "easy" walk in regards to distance (which is why we chose this place) however very steep walk home. Disclaimer: we're from florida so any incline seems steep, haha, but the road and driveway were def very steep! Made for a good workout. Most enjoyed bringing our two dogs for very minimal fee, which we appreciate! Loved our stay, enjoying the house, charming town, and nearby naturesque trails!

  • Great location


    Overall we enjoyed our stay here. The home was huge and we loved that we were able to walk into town (but note that both the driveway & the street the house is on are quite steep!) and the porch is so lovely. The house wasn’t super clean & we had some issues communicating with the host/company with a particular issue, but overall we had a nice stay & would probably stay here again!

  • This home has many problems!


    Hi, I’m Susan Cantrell. We have rented 82 Lucerne Dr in Highlands, NC from Friday 2/16 and checked out the morning of 2/18. I just wanted to bring to your attention a few problems with this home. And these were already issues when we arrived but we just dealt with it for the 2 nights. 2 kitchen drawers wouldn’t stay closed. The top level bathroom toilet runs continuously. We ended up just turning off water behind the toilet. And shower knob cannot be adjusted, only stays on scalding hot. The knob spins 360 degrees. Top level bedroom has been freshly painted and had about a 1/2 crack at the window bottoms with air draft coming in, nobody could sleep up there. We tried our best to close them somewhat. There were pans/buckets when we arrived catching water dripping from skylights. Just wanted to bring these to your attention.

  • Great House


    The house was clean and roomy. There were plenty of towels and comfortable beds. The location was very close to downtown. We are repeat customers in renting this house. We plan to try and get it next year also. 10 out of 10.
