quiet vacation on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for having us! We loved the house! Very updated and clean. Plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 children. We weren't successful at catching any fish at the lake but we took a drive to another lake and caught a few! Beach 3 was clean and the kids liked it. We appreciated the fire pit and made s'mores before a thunderstorm rolled in. My son greeted a young deer off the driveway one morning and there were several rabbits to entertain. We appreciated the owners great communication and helpful guidance. Thanks!!

Location was great and we really enjoyed the fire pit. Quiet for us (which was good) but enough things to do around too for people who want activities.

We( family vac) spent our best quality time for 3 nights at chic lake view cottage highland lakes. This beautiful cottage is located near huge awesome lakes and surrounded by beautiful trees & some awesome neighbors cottages. There is a private lakes for swimming with a lifeguard on duty which is great. We saw some people boating on the lakes which looks the Highland lakes more attractive & beautiful. And of course the lake itself scenery or surrounding with trees and houses looks very attractive & wonderful too. Neighborhoods looks so nice & greet people on the way with their beautiful smile on their face which is great. This place Highland lakes is not far from space farm(Zoo & Museum) which is wonderful one. It took only like 30 minutes drive to get there & so many lovely animals & birds to watch & feed them. There is also museum houses at the end . And also there was a lovely live music concert on that Sunday at other place which was only like 24 minutes drive from Highland lake house. Our special thanks goes to cottage owner who are wonderful & understanding. They kept their house beautiful, very clean & let us use their amenities, kitchen stuff (utensils, stove , cups ,bowls, spoons & forks), bedding , towels & TV. We also would like to thank the staffs of Homeaway.com . Without them we can't connect to this beautiful & lovely cottage & the wonderful owner. On the whole we had a wonderful & memorable family vacation at Highland lakes . Thanks a lot once again to the awesome cottage owner and the awesome homeaway.com. 🙏�🙏�🙏�👍�👍�👍�💐�🌷�🌺�🌹�😍�👌�👌�👌�
