Charming home for the Prom Queens

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a long weekend getaway for a group of old friends. It's beautifully decorated, yet completely comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed the many small artistic touches scattered throughout. The kitchen is well-stocked with basics (we especially appreciated the thoughtfulness of the "starter" canister of coffee). We enjoyed the screened porch and the Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake. Every bed has a great mattress.

This is a good location: close to downtown Highlands but in a quiet residential area away from the hustle and bustle. This proved to be an ideal setting for us. Thanks so much for making this jewel available!

Sophisticated charm inside and out

This was the second time we rented this home and again, it didn't disappoint. Beautiful furnishings and attention to detail not to mention the great location makes this one of my favorite vacation getaways.

we spent 90 days with this lovely home this summer (2015) and could not have been more pleased...its lovely location, well appointed with impeccable taste of the owner.

the bedrooms are perfect for guests and even a small twin bedded extra room for children or nanny

the master suite is so cozy and charming...with the windows opening to the sounds of the bullfrogs!

the kitchen has anything a great chef would need, and the screen porch is the perfect setting for your dinner parties.

the deck has a lovely view of the pond...

we will certainly return

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home!! Our 4 day stay could not have been better. This home offers every luxury and accommodation needed for a perfect vacation. We found the house exactly as it was described. The pictures don't do this fabulous property justice!! It was clean as well as decorated beautifully. The owner was easily accessible and offered us great directions as well as recommendations for restaurants. This is a 5 star home that I would recommend to any friend or relative!

Cozy and Charming

  • 5 of 5

Some girlfriends and I stayed in this charming English cottage for a long weekend. The owner is easy to communicate with, and professional in her demeanor.

The house has beautiful curb appeal, as you enter through the moss-covered, wooden gate, into the pea-gravel drive lined with pretty flowers and ferns. It would be an ideal place to stay for a romantic getaway.

The interior of the home is well-appointed, with attractive English and country-French antiques. It is also amply-supplied with everything you need, including fluffy, white towels and down pillows. I also loved having a gas stove top to cook on.

The back porch is also nice for sipping your coffee in the morning, overlooking the pretty lake, below. You can choose to either sit out in the open on the adirondack cahirs, or in the screened-in area at a table, or on cushioned sofas and chairs.

It also has wifi and music...I suggest you either listen to the local station or you can bring your own cds!

It is located on a gravel road, with only small hills, ideal for walking. The only disadvantages are: 1) Don't bring a sports car that is low t the ground, and, 2) You can not expect to keep your car clean while you are staying here. For me, it was worth living for a few days with a dirty car, though. Before heading home, I went directly to the drive-thru car wash near Bryson's.

Why The Owner chose Highlands

The summers are so lovely in Highlands. There is always something to do or somewhere wonderful to shop. Nice people live here.

What makes this house unique

Walk around the lake in the morning or sit on the porch with your coffee. Take a short walk to town and browse the wonderful shops.
