Beautiful and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this charming cabin! The location can't be beat -- you can walk to town in 5 minutes but feel like you're in the middle of the woods. The cabin is outfitted with everything you need -- bathrobes, toiletries, etc. The hot tub is a treat and the fireplace is the coziest!

We loved it! We had a wonderful wedding weekend in the Highlands. The beautifully decorated cottage was the perfect location because of it's walking distance to downtown. Yet we got to enjoy the mountain experience because of this lovely home. We sat on the screened porch and enjoyed the sounds of the creek. The nights were cozy around the fireplace. It is such a charming place...even decorated for Christmas! I hope to return someday!

Wedding planning weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Millbrook cottage! Lori was so easy to work with and very flexible. Our dogs really enjoyed the house and the screened in porch. It was the perfect place to come unwind at night after a busy day of wedding planning. Highly recommend this house to anyone.

Weekend with the girls

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Blown away by first visit to Highlands. Absolutely beautiful location and this lovely retreat made it all that much easier to enjoy! Truly is walking distance to all the fabulous shops and market, yet conveniently tucked away, providing a private retreat in the mountains. The furnishings were cozy and warm and it felt very much like our home away for home. (Okay, probably nicer than my home!) The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate and spacious. Loved, loved, loved the sounds of the bustling creek! I'm anxious to get back with my family as I know the kids will love the creek and of course, s'mores by the fire pit!

Never stay in a hotel again! Elegantly appointed with all the comforts of home...

  • 5 of 5

I was expecting a rustic cabin. What I got was a full service retreat full of all the high-end amenities and conveniences of a 5-star hotel.

The decor is stunning but fits within the charm of the Highland area. The gorgeous kitchen is spacious and perfect for planning a family meal in or having appetizers and wine with friends.

The details extend even to the choice of linens and bath amenities. By far the most luxurious vrbo I've experienced.

While the inclement weather prevented us from fully enjoying the porch, hot tub and fire pit... just knowing those features were available enhanced the experience!

The location is perfect. Just a few minutes walk into town. Perfect for a hike (just out the front door)... and surrounded by exceptional restaurants and shopping.

This gem in the woods is worth the price and I can't wait to return!

Highlands Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful cottage. The location is superb, seems like you are in the middle of the woods when you are actually are a couple blocks from great restaurants and shops. There are hikes out of the front door, the creek in the back is so special, you can hear from the inside of the house and spend some nice time by the fire. The cottage itself is done in such nice taste. It's cozy and comfortable, very clean and very well stacked up with all the kitchen utensils, nice towels and attention to the small details that we really appreciated. It made our stay very nice and special. We would go back again and again if going back to Highlands.
