"First of all, I should mention that Carol was incredibly accommodating before we even left home to head to Highlands. Severe winter weather was in the forecast, and I was monitoring the situation closely (not even knowing what, if any, sort of weather policy applied to my reservation). Before I even expressed any concern to Carol, she reached out to me and offered to let us move our dates if there was a danger of our trip being affected by the ice and snow. She was extremely flexible in letting us wait to make a "game time" decision on whether or not to delay our trip, since the property was available in the days following our stay. We did end up delaying our departure by a day and were glad we chose to do that.
The property itself was even better than the photos and description convey. It was just the right distance from town to feel very secluded, yet with everything still within a reasonable (and gorgeous) drive. The open layout of the home and the modern style and amenities made it very different than the kitschy, cookie-cutter cabins we've rented in other destinations. The creek and white water made for such a refreshing backdrop. We loved that there was no TV in the main living area. We enjoyed just relaxing and playing checkers in front of the wood-burning stove, a great feature.
As someone who likes to cook on vacation, one of the biggest perks was the fact that the kitchen was so well stocked. We liked not having to worry about buying things like salt and pepper or coffee filters. It's obvious that the owners use the property regularly, and renters benefit from that. There are books to read, games, movies, and an extensive CD collection. I mentioned to my husband that it felt more like house-sitting for a friend than renting a sterile, impersonal property.
I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Highlands."

"We just returned from an incredibly enjoyable 3 night stay at this ideally located apartment just steps from the charm of the downtown Highlands. The accommodations were clean, well appointed, and charming. We were able to walk everywhere in the Highlands for shopping, dining, and sightseeing. Sunset Rock is close by and some of the most scenic hiking is within 5 miles of this location. We like to travel with our 4 legged child and he was welcomed as well. The Highlands is a very dog-friendly town so it's nice to be able to include your pet in the fun. We highly recommend this wonderful rental and will definitely come back."

"Perfect mountain retreat nestled in the woods yet close to town. Beautifully and comfortably decorated and the owner was so accommodating. Our grandchildren enjoyed walking along the creek and playing games at the dining room table. Grandpa enjoyed reading in the Sun room. We also found a hiking trail close by and many terrific restaurants (Ugly Dog; Meritage; Wild Thyme; Mountain Fresh Grocery & Wine Market) and shops . This was our second time to stay here and we definitely would recommend a visit to this home."
