We don't allow dogs any longer - it's a long story with multiple, unhappy outcomes. If you feel you would like to bring ONE dog you can email me with your particular needs.

We have attempted to make our home as comfortable as possible with the best furnishings and finishes to make your rental stay in Highlands an exceptional experience.

Our Chef's kitchen will inspire those who cook and be admired by those who prefer to dine out. Dining for 8 or more at our expandable table in the dining room or step outside and dine on our expandable teak table.

Comfort you can Feel:
Lounge back and relax because comfort in our home and bedrooms is our number one priority. That's why we are offering all Peacock Alley bedding and toweling to give you that 'hotel feel'. All Bedrooms have in suite baths and there are no adjoining walls in the bedrooms creating the utmost in privacy. Both the Upper Level and Lower level offer half baths so no guests have to enter a bedroom to use the bathroom. Bedding Coverlets and Duvets are all from Sferra, Peacock Alley, Williams Sonoma Home, Pottery Barn or Made to Measure. Curtains are from the Silk Trading Company except for the 13 foot Living Room Drapes which were custom made with Schumacher toile fabric.
Furnishings Old and New:
Furnishings are from many sources around Atlanta and purchased at auction from Selkirks in St Louis. You will find old and new alike placed to create a nice visual worn in feel. Large Couch dimensions were intentionally selected for lying down - you'll find two inside and our favorite on the upper level screen porch. At night click on the gas log fireplace, stretch out and take it all the fresh air.
Lower Level Sleeping/Napping and Reading Screened Porch. We were inspired from our childhoods when we slept on the 'sleeping porch' on summer nights. So we added two hanging twin beds from the Chesapeake Collection at Pottery Barn for relaxing. Just hang out or make the beds with our full set of sheets, blankets and down comforters and sleep outdoors. These are standard twin size, with firm cushions, so comfortable. A dream come true.
An adjoining deck offers designer furnishings from McKinnon and Harris, Palechek, and Richardson Allen. See Photo
