About Erin & Bryan
We are originally from the Northeast and have lived in the Central Florida for the last 5 years. In the fall of 2016 we visited Highlands and fell in love with it. 5 days after we fist came here we made an offer on a place. When it's 95 in the summer in Florida, it's 75 in Highlands!
Erin & Bryan purchased this Bungalow in 2016
Why Erin & Bryan chose Mirror Lake
We were looking for a place in the mountains on a lake. The water level of Mirror Lake is 3,600 feet above sea level. It is one of the highest altitude lakes east of the Mississippi River. We also like remodeling houses. When we bought this place in the fall of 2016 it needed A LOT of love. We spent over a year remodeling it.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Our place is the best of all worlds. It's lakefront, secluded in the woods, but still only 2 miles from the town center of Highlands. There aren't many lakes in Highlands so lakefront homes are expensive to rent if you can find one. "65 Below" is a newly finished lakefront apartment totally separate from the main house so it's the most cost effective lakefront rental in the area.

was good until the owner sent me an email asking if we had taken a pet after cleaner reported an "abundance of hair". Wasn't sure how to take that! Assured him we had no pet & he seemed content with my response. Probably will use vrbo again in the same area but will choose a property with a fireplace.
Nice,new property close to downtown Highlands. Owners are very responsive.
Great location, comfortable space
Mirror Lake is a wonderful location for visiting Highlands -- close to town with its shopping and restaurants but also set in a peaceful area. The space is charming and well appointed and the deck and dock are a wonderful place to pass time. We brought a kayak enjoyed using it on the lake. The one bathroom takes some coordination, especially with teens, and the steps down to the lake could be a challenge for some -- but the payoff is worth it. Mirror Lake is aptly named. The owner Bryan responded instantly to one small request we had and offered to point us toward things to do around town, if we needed. We loved our stay.
Property was as described and pictured. Everything was new with nice fixtures. We loved the spacious deck and access to the lake as well as the proximity to downtown. The owners were responsive via text when we reached out. Quiet neighborhood.
We loved it here. It was clean, comfortable, newly refurbished, had a great view, and was convenient to downtown Highlands and many great natural sites. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed our four night stay in the Highlands. The accommodations were perfectly situated a very short drive from town which served as an excellent hub for our adventures. The host/owner, Bryan, made sure our stay went as expected. The added bonus- my oldest son and I spent a significant amount of time catching fish off the dock. All in all a very special trip.
