Awesome views!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our recent vacation to Highlands and this house was awesome! It is so close to downtown, but yet removed, private and quiet. The outside deck is perfect for mountain views and evening rains. And the bedrooms on 3 floors are awesome for privacy and nap times. We loved it!

Awesome home

  • 5 of 5

This Mtn home is more special than pictures show. The layout of the rooms allows for great privacy and yet there are lots of room to hang out together. The view off back porch encourages you to sit for hours watching the mountains. The area the cabin in is great for hiking and enjoying the hotel pool and hot tub. We highly recommend this home. It has everything you need for a special time and the owner is excellent to work with.

We will be back.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed staying at your cabin over Easter weekend. The cabin was wonderful. Comfortable, and with a great kitchen in which to cook for a family of foodies, and the setting inspiring. Convenient to many hikes, waterfalls, and the town of Highlands. Our stay was enjoyable and relaxing.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home. Great location with proximity to downtown and trails. It rained the whole time we were there but with the fire roaring and large porch we had a blast. We will be back. Excellent owners who went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay!

July 4th Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! The views are truly spectacular; the kitchen is set up perfectly so the cook isn’t isolated; and the beds we all agreed were amazingly comfortable. The owner was extremely accommodating and responsive.

Great house for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in Highlands for many years, and this home ranks up with the best. We were there for a week beginning June 21, 2015, and our visit included a catered dinner for about 25 close friends at the home. The kitchen is very well equipped with excellent appliances and lots of cookware. Additionally, there was table seating (inside and on the porch) for all. The location was very convenient. Finally, the owner was very easy to work with. He quickly answered a couple of questions we had and went out of his way to help make our visit very pleasant.
