** WELCOME TO HUNTER'S LODGE**
Spectacular, panoramic mountain view from sunrise to sunset. This custom built, luxury home is located on Highlands Mountain. 15 minutes from downtown Highlands. On top of Highlands Mountain. It is one of the the highest homes in the area, placed right next to forest service land for additional privacy and easy access to hiking trails. Maps for hiking trails are available in home.
****View is so expansive that you can see hawks and eagles soaring past the balconies*****

In winter months, please pick up 1-2 bags of salt in case of snow. 4WD vehicles are also recommended if you know it is going to be snowing. If you do not have a 4WD vehicle and we get a snow storm, just park at the top of driveway on the grass.
The property looks and feels like a 5 star mountain resort. Spend the day hiking on groomed, creekside mountain trails and your evening dining at an award winning restaurant in Highlands. We have run into town to buy supplies only to find ourselves still there 5 hours later exploring the many unique shops and trying a new restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. Coming home to this beautiful estate is priceless. Fireplaces inside and out will thrill you all 4 seasons with the push a a remote control button. Fire pit for memorable outdoor nights by a roaring fire.
