                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Lorine and Jim (in the picture, playing cards on our back porch) have been visiting Highlands since the '70s, and finally bought a home for their eventual retirement. Jim and daughter Jessica helped rebuild and expand the home, making it our perfect destination.

                  Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
                  Ray's Roost (named after Jim's grandfather) is our dream location. Secluded, with a breathtaking Mtn view, yet in the middle of a wonderful town. Note that the weathervane on the roof came from Jim's grandparents home, then his mother's home, and now our home.This is why it is a part of our logo.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The panoramic view from the rear porch is what draws most people. It can be viewed from the covered and (optionally) enclosed porch. But the front porch provides a tranquil setting, and a BIG firepit for the evenings.
