About the property

Amazing Renovation, Best location in Highlands, walk to everything.

Simplicity. For over fifteen years we have been visiting the Highlands and honing our definition of the perfect weekend retreat- A simple luxurious place with plenty of room for friends and a location close enough to town so the car can stay parked as long as we want. We finally have the house to make this dream come true. With a fun rustic-modern vibe, the house is a short stroll from Main Street and The Old Edwards Inn and has room for up to ten. Three bedrooms upstairs and a separate sitting area, two bedrooms and a games nook downstairs makes the house ideal for large groups or two families to share. It has an open layout and is ideal for entertaining, wedding parties, girl's weekends, guy's weekends, dogs-playing poker weekends... It also has a two car garage. This is the place for your Highlands adventures.

Walk to world class shopping, a day at the spa, the ice cream shops, great restaurants, or take a short trip to countless outdoor adventures. The wifi will let you stay plugged in, the 48' HD flat screen will let you catch the game, and a brand new deck and grill out back invite you to enjoy the beautiful climate at 4118 feet above sea level. Walk to Harris Lake, where you can feed the ducks (or geese, we don't discriminate) or do a little fishing.

This happy house is comfortable, casual and smack in the middle of all the Highlands action...everything you need for a wonderful escape to the mountains!

Great location !

We so enjoyed our stay! We had two families and plenty of room to spare. The location of the home to downtown was perfect! We can't wait to return.

Wonderful house, easy walk to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing visit to Highlands and loved your house. It was very spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The children loved the front yard swing and fishing in the pond down the street. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. We also really appreciated the information that was left in the living room on the house and area! The only thing that I would suggest improving are the cooking utensils, baking sheets, pots and pans. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that the house worked out well for you. Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write this review. I also appreciate you mentioning the kitchen cookware and utensils. I will update those ASAP--I really had not thought about those in a while and you're right, it's time for an upgrade. :) Thank you so much, Laird

Pretty and comfy house with a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time renting this home and we'll be back for more! This year my 5 year old grandson had a ball fishing in the lake and we loved doing some of our favorite climbs and discovering new and beautiful places. We highly recommend this home and the owners are super nice and accommodating!!

Clean & comfortable with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is outstanding, light and bright inside with comfortable seating and sleeping arrangements. Linens were on all of the beds and the owners left great insight on the local attractions, restaurants and markets which we found fantastic. The location is very convenient and within walking distance to everything town has to offer.

We love to go to the wine garden at Old Edwards or Gem mining with the kids. Or just spend a lazy day feeding the ducks at the lake and curling up by the fireplace reading a book or watching the game.
