We had such a great stay here. The lake is quiet and beautiful, the house is big and well furnished and the location is awesome for being close to town but easy drives for great hikes! The house owner left great recommendations that made our trip. Thank you!
Beautiful Home lots of space
The house is beautiful, lots of room and nicely decorated. The kitchen has all the appliances you need.
The house is on a busy road but set back enough that it was not a problem.
The lake is pretty, nice area to relax on a fall weekend.
Peaceful lake view home
This home was so serene, it is nicely decorated, open, bright & airy. You get a beautiful view from the bedroom & deck. The home was immaculate when we arrived, the kitchen is stocked with everything you would need, the beds are comfortable, the lake is beautiful-crystal clear, the location is quiet & ideal. About a 5-10 min ride to local shops & cafes. We are hoping to make this a yearly trip. The owner Rita was prompt to answer any questions.
Thank you for your review.! We are always so happy that others can share and enjoy what we have loved for years.
Charming property on beautiful lake
6 if us stayed in this charming house with a view of the water. The decor is inviting, the beds comfortable, and the lake is spectacular. Rita was wonderful about accommodating our late departure time and was quick to respond to any questions.
Beautiful house, pet friendly.
We had a wonderful time here. The only issue was the excessive heat (over 95 degrees) and no air conditioning. It was an unusual heat wave for this area. The house was easy to keep clean, even with two German Shepherds. The lake was nice and cold. Town is quaint and very friendly, good restaurants in the area. Portland is an hour away and went on three different tours - Trolley and Boat (dog friendly), Food Tour and Brew Bus tour. All were great!
lovely home; dishonest owner-- DO NOT RENT!
DO NOT RENT FROM THIS OWNER. After dozens of rentals through VRBO, I'm sorry that a negative experience has led me to write my first-ever review.
The house is lovely, but after we left the owner dishonestly claimed that we had caused damage to the property and left it in unacceptable condition. There were 6 adults in their 50s, 60s, and 70s staying in the house (no crazy young'uns!), all of whom concur that we absolutely did not dent the refrigerator door (how does one do that?), damage the grill cover, or leave the house filthy- all of which the owner used as a faudulent excuse to keep $350 of our deposit. (In full disclosure, yes, we did leave ice in the sink (it melts!); we did pick up trash from all over the yard after an animal got into the outdoor trash can and put it back in the can; and we did leave a flypaper in the kitchen, which we had bought to confront a horde of flies. We also complied fully with the contract which included a fee for a full house cleaning. $350 of our deposit was kept on top of the cleaning fee.)
After multiple attempts to communicate with the owner and discuss these issues, she has still refused to refund our money.
We also learned (during our time renting) that the owner had disagreements with neighbors which led them to plant a maple tree directly in the line of sight of the lake from the house's lovely porch, so there appears to be a history of failing to get along with folks.
Highland Lake is beautiful- find a different house to rent!
Unfortunately this is the first negative review and personal attack I have received since renting my home. I take care to make sure that when my guests arrive all is as I would like to find a rental property. I have been renting my home for over 20 years and this is the first time ever having a damage issue or any issue at all. In dealing with this I have tried to be as open, understanding and fair about claiming this damage.
My property Manager/Housekeeper who has been with me for many years reported noticeable damage. She sent photo's of the dented refrigerator door, melting ice cream, Ice and other debris left in the sink as well as noting grill cover was damaged beyond repair, fly strip left hanging near stove, flies come from food left out or doors being left open. She also reported that it took her twice her normal cleaning time to get the house back into its normal very clean state. She noted cleaning issues like food spilled into bottom of refrigerator, extra work to wash/sanitize trash cans after garbage not being bagged before putting in cans and heavier than normal wear and tear (dirt) in house.
No dishonest claim was submitted, the claim was backed up with photos. I address these issues with all involved (via website communication and text) and I investigate the issues that were reported to me. I personal went to the property to see damages to make sure there was no dishonest reporting or misunderstandings. I kept the all parties informed at all times.
With the guidance and investigation of HomeAway, which is there to protect both owners and renters, found no fault or dishonesty on my part and that the evidence of damage (pictures) was in fact non disputable.
I am sorry for all involved that we have had to deal with this unpleasant situation. However, I am very appreciative of the lovely comment about my home. For years many families have come and enjoyed the house, lake, neighbors and have left honest reviews about me and my home.
I've been very blessed to have wonderful long term relationships with many of my repeat renters and remain open and committed to making there time at my home as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
