Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well-maintained and comfortable property. It's far enough off the beaten path that we had a good deal of privacy, but it's still just a quick few minutes to get to downtown Highlands. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch, which looks out on a verdant back yard with many birds and other wildlife. The kitchen was well-equipped, allowing us to cook breakfast each morning. The bedrooms were large, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were very nice as well. I'm picky about bedding, and found the sheets were a soft cotton that felt great for sleeping. There's a fantastic fire pit in the back yard to provide the perfect end to your day. There's also plenty of parking. We had 3 cars among 3 couples, and we never had any issues with getting in or out of the driveway. Loved our stay here!

Great house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this well equipped home. It was conveniently located very close to Highlands yet still maintained a great deal of privacy in a mountain setting. The house was comfortable, clean, well equipped and served my family well in every way. There was a great swimming/fishing hole (Pinky Falls) about .5 mile from the home. The pull off is on Flat Mtn Rd just past the bridge and turn for Skyline Lodge Rd. Also about .5 mile past the property on Flat Mtn Rd is a trail head for Ranger Falls and Cliffside Lake. We had a fantastic outdoor vacation in this great home. Highly recommended.

Perfect secluded location with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented vacation homes many times and this house was perfect! The house was exactly as depicted in the photos. It was clean and provided every thing we needed-we do a fair amount of cooking in and the kitchen was more than adequately supplied. We encountered a couple minor issues and Jim responded immediately when called. We ate every meal on the spacious screened in porch-the best room in the house! Thanks, Jim!

Beautiful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This house was actually better than the pictures showed. Wonderful, quiet, secluded area with beautiful landscaping. House was very clean upon arrival and appreciated the refrigerator being stocked for breakfast. Close enough to town for easy drives in but far away enough to enjoy the countryside. I would definitely stay at this house again.

Having stayed at VRBOs for ten years, we've seen quite a variety. This one is possibly the best ever! Immaculate, roomy, well furnished and packed with conveniences, this home will be calling us back anytime we are headed near Highlands. We were so grateful for the amazing hospitality and thoughtfulness of the Sharp's!
