Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Again, this year we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment. My husband cautioned me to not give it such a great review as I did last year as it was already booked (in January) for late August. We were unaware of the the Total Eclipse there on August 21st! We did stay for a month from mid July to mid August. This location is so perfect for walking to town, and hearing the town's Churches chimes from the deck. Steps away, the Shell gas station/convenience store is great for breakfast and lunch when you want something quick. Our favorite restaurants are Meritage, Wild Thyme, and Lakeside. It is great to know the owners live in the area, and would be available if we needed anything. We're already looking forward to our return visit next year. The Longs, Hilton Head Island, SC

If you want an intown experience, this is the place. It is convenient to everything in downtown Highlands and it is a great location from which to set off on nearby hikes and other adventures. The bed was extremely comfortable. We would stay here again!

It's sometimes hard to find down time but I'm sure you were able to sneak some in. We hope to see you again in the future!

Great little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfectly situated in Highlands, NC. This was our FIRST visit to the area. We walked downtown multiple times a day, took day trips to hike and enjoyed the weather immensely. Mary came by to say hi and we felt very welcomed.

The furnishings are being updated and if we decide to visit again by ourselves, would rebook this location as it is close to driving out of town as well as walking everywhere. Loved learning about the history of the original structure.

A little Soho / Greenwich village in Highlands

  • 5 of 5

Enter this hip "loft like" space and you get a great place to set up camp for any activity you'd ever want. Short walk to downtown Highlands and all offerings there for shopping and really good food. Lots of day hikes, kayaking, scenic places, you name it, adventure all around. Or just relax on the deck with great company, a few glasses of wine while preparing a great meal in the well appointed kitchen. This was a great romantic get away for us. Would rent again in a heartbeat. Nice owner, nice neighbors. Walk to downtown. Convenient!!
