Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

The house on Big Bear Pen Mountain is the perfect get-away for couples, families or even a small group. We have used all in the past and because of floorplan accomodates all easily. The views are wonderful! This is a great house for families because of the flat yard and porches....easy to entertain children. The mountain top is very easy to navigate walking and bike riding. The furnishings are beautiful yet easy to maintain and the kitchen well stocked to fix great meals for a crowd. There are several very good groceries and markets in Highland's...so we enjoy coooking and grilling versus dining out with a group. Excellent cuisine abounds though...if you decide to venture off your mountain top retreat!! Comfortable beds and complete silence make for a perfect night's sleep. A very special place to spend a romantic get away, family get together or small retreat!

Wonderful!!!!

The house was perfect for a weekend getaway with friends! It sits high up on the mountain. Walking around the mountain was lots of fun because there were fun trails and beautiful views.

Family gathering - solar eclipse!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this beautiful, spacious ,well equipped home in a lovely mountain top setting. Loved the beautiful views and friendly neighbors walking the Bear Pen Road loop. Honestly, loved everything about this house and the Highlands area-thank you Ben and Melissa. Only wish Highlands was a bit closer to us- quite a long drive from VA!

Great location! Wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

This house is situated in the perfect location. You're very close to town, but at the top of Big Bear Pen Mountain, which feels remote. What's better, is that the owners were some of the nicest people I've ever dealt with. Could not have been more pleased with our stay.

Mountaintop Home in Highland Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Ben and Melissa were so wonderful to work with. They had everything set up and ready for us to enjoy. The views are limited from the house, but walk either way up the street and have your breath taken away. We saw a black bear on the way out one afternoon. Its very quiet and away from it all, but a quick drive or good hike down the mountain and back into town within minutes. Plenty of parking and enough room to sleep 10 comfortably. Ping pong table in the garage provided fun while killing time. The location is great for hiking, chasing waterfalls, shopping, dining, and all the fun things to do in the Highlands.

Everything about this house is perfect and "just like home". We loved every minute there and Ben could not have been more helpful if we ever needed anything. It was the perfect location and the perfect home for a perfect vacation.
