Great getaway in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

Highlands is a wonderful place to spend some time in the summer. Scenery, restaurants, shops. Highlands has it all. The house is set in a peaceful area just outside of town and is very well equipped. Would recommend for couples, families or groups. A great place!

Great "base of operations" for Highlands

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. It's a nice house, only a few miles away from downtown Highlands, so it's a great "base of operations". The owners had left some breakfast food in the fridge (eggs, bacon, biscuits, oj), which we really appreciated. Jim was very helpful with directions, and with a suggestion on where to get groceries. The jacuzzi tub in the master bath was great. I was impressed that all of the jets worked! That seems to be a rare find these days. And there were tons of towels. The house has a great screened-in porch, with a nice table and chairs. There were a few minor drawbacks: there were no facial tissues, the neighbors’ dog barked a little (we only heard it a couple of times when we were outside; we couldn't hear it inside), and the power went out a few times (twice on a rainy day, twice on a sunny day). We also had to take our trash to a recycling center. However, the positive factors outweighed those. The house is mostly surrounded by woods; you can barely see the other houses (there is also a new one getting built up the hill from this one). The price of the house was great, and it looks like the owners even roll the cleaning fee into the daily rate. You'll need to be patient when waiting for the access code to the house. The owners have had people arrive really early (possibly day(s) early) without permission, which has forced them (understandably) to wait to provide the access code until closer to a rental period. We got ours the night before we were due to arrive. Overall, this house was a good rental.

Wonderful Easter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was perfect for our long Easter weekend. The house itself was most comfortable; the kitchen was well equipped and easy to use, and the back (screened) porch was where we ate most meals. But our favorite place was the spacious and private back yard, where we sat by the fire pit, roasted Smores, and savored nature. The whole setting was so tranquil, and also convenient for our hiking trips; if you're into the outdoors, be sure to do Whiteside Mountain. The kids will never forget the horseback riding (nearby).

Since we live on the coast and our grandchildren had not seen the mountains, this was a memorable experience for our family.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great comfortable house where we just spent part of spring break along with a couple of our grown kids and grandchildren. Beautiful, clean, updated home with a wonderful screened porch. Our grand children spent hours in the massive flat back yard safely playing and exploring while well in our sight from the screened porch. Very private and yet still close to town. We cooked many meals in this beautiful kitchen and grilled on the gas girl. We made s'mores on the fire pit our last night, and also built a fire in the den fireplace on one cold rainy day with generous amounts of good dry firewood provided.

We come up to Highlands from Birmingham several times a year and would definitely recommend this rental. The owners have gone above and beyond to make sure everything needed is provided. We will definitely come back! Dr. And Mrs. Everitt Simmons , Birmingham, Alabama
