Royce Realty purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Royce Realty chose Highlands

Loved the cozy and warm feel of the newly renovated space. Made it our own with new bedding, sheets, towels, furniture, artwork, decorative pieces. This is a place I would live in if I didn't already own a small home about 5 minutes from here. Perfect in town location with every single amenity you could want.

What makes this townhome unique

Our "nest" is a special place in town that offers the feel of a 5 star hotel with the amenities of home. Great space in the center of it all with the feel of being tucked away in a nest. Cozy, incredibly welcoming and meticulously clean space that you won't want to leave.

Lovely accommodations with a location that can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay at The Nest, from the communication with the owner prior to our arrival to the minute we departed for home. Updated kitchen and bathrooms and a nice large laundry room that served as an additional storage area made it easy to house six adults (2 adult children on air mattresses) and entertain a few local friends who stopped by. My husband and I love the Hummingbird Lounge at the Old Edwards Inn, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when Cy Timmons is playing, and on this trip we saw him both nights. After each show, we walked directly across the street to The Nest, closer than our room at Old Edwards on our last visit. If you have a party of two, four or six and love downtown Highlands, look no further. You'll love The Nest!

GORGEOUS property in a PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Nest. The property is stunning, extremely clean, and thoughtfully furnished, with a beautiful view of Old Edwards. I never dreamed a place like this even existed in Highlands, but am thrilled to have found it! In fact, it is the first time in my vacation rental experience where a place was even better in person than it looks in the pictures! To say the Nest exceeded my expectations would be a tremendous understatement. We have been visiting Highlands for years and have always stayed at Old Edwards. Moving forward, I can safely say the Nest is our new home in Highlands!

As though the property itself wasn't enough - the owner Beth is AMAZING. She goes above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful stay and is extremely responsive in the event you have any questions/issues (though I highly doubt you will!). Her gracious hospitality is second to none, and just like the Nest itself, she will undoubtedly exceed your expectations!

We look forward to returning to this wonderful place very soon!

The best spot in Highlands. The place was perfect for two couples.

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing and decorated in mountain decor. We parked our cars and never used them. Walked to town and shopped and ate. Have been coming to Highlands for over 20 years and this place was tops. Not to mention that Georgia beat Missouri. Will be back again.

A wonderful place to stay in the heart of Highlands!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a three night getaway (2 couples) and loved the Nest! Clean, quaint, updated, comfortable beds and perfect location (across from the Old Edwards Inn). The guys enjoyed watching football and we all enjoyed yummy restaurants and shopping! The owner is super easy to work with and left yummy wine too. We will be back for sure!

We took a last minute trip to visit my son who lives in Highlands. The property manager worked with me on dates (which was amazing given it was a busy Holiday Weekend) and was attentive each and every time I reached out to her. The property itself was in a great location (though parking is a little tricky) and everything in it was new, spotless and aesthetically pleasing. I've stayed in several hotels in Highlands including the Old Edwards which is beautiful, but I would prefer to stay here any time I traveled to Highlands going forward! It was homey, stylish and located right off main! My husband, daughter and I loved The Nest!
