About the property

Waterfront location, middle of shoreline for great unobstructed views.

'The Highlander' was lovingly built by Jeanne Casale Bourn, who decorated it with beautiful quilts and other local treasures. Her touch is still evident – comfortable, modern and absolutely relaxing.

The house looks directly onto the middle of the lake with a view from the beach to the lodge. A wrap around deck (partially enclosed) provides a wonderful view.

The Highlander boasts 11 rooms, 3 bath, 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8: bed - 1 queen; 2 full; and 2 twins).

Electric baseboard heat; AC in central living area and ceiling fans everywhere. Pellet stoves both up and downstairs. Full kitchen with dishwasher and microwave; washer & dryer; satellite TV, DVD, DVD collection. No house phone, cell reception is good. Wifi signal from lodge.

Easy walking distance to beach, fishing, playground, tennis and basketball courts and horseshoe pit. Rental includes use of canoe in season. Full 18 hole golf available at Alpine lodge (1 mile).

Great view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I like to take the family off the grid to reconnect at the beginning of each year. This property was a great place for that. It was spacious and peaceful. The view of the lake was fantastic.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home on the lake. House was very clean and well stocked with everything that we would need for a wonderful stay. Many things to do within a reasonable distance. The Cornish Manor was a lovely place to relax on the porch and have dinner. Loved visiting Frank Lloyd Wrights home, Falling Waters as well as some white water rafting.

Thank you very much for sharing your home with us! Don't be surprised if you hear from us again.

A Great Relaxing Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time renting out the Highlander and we've had a wonder stay each time. The homey touches, beautiful hung quilts, plenty of sleeping space and huge deck provide plenty of room for our family and friends. Even the day it rained was still nice to sit on the enclosed part of the deck and watch the storm over the lake and mountains. It feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, just you and the lake, while being only a few minutes from the town of Oakland for supplies and Deep Creek Lake for exploring. There's a beach area about 5 minutes walk from the house with lifeguards so kids can swim and play in the water. I highly recommend it.

Bourn vacation home on Alpine Lake

  • 1 of 5

I am sorry but I cannot give a positive review other than the fact that the house is located in an ideal spot on the lake. The deck view was gorgeous. We spent most of our time outside because the house itself was very dirty and rundown with mold smells in the basement and broken screens on the doors...the kitchen and refrigerator were filthy.

It would have been an excellent place to stay if the inside were in better condition.....clean and updated.

Owner's Response: I am utterly shocked at your post Anita. Yes, the screens were damaged by a previous renter and our maintenance man was unable to get to it before your visit. But we have the property thoroughly cleaned after every renter, including the refrigerator. I wish you would have called as soon as you felt there was a problem, as I would have certainly worked to have made your situation right. I was just there this past weekend and the house looked great but for the screens. (I was even complemented by one of our guests as to how good it looked relative to her visit last year.) I am sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations.
