                                                    Best appointed house in Highlands and we are Veterans!

                                                    Howell L.

                                                    Great neighborhood. Great Value. Best appointed house that we have rented in Highlands and we are VETERANS of renting houses in Highlands. The screened in porches are magnificent. We wanted for nothing! The house and Highlands are just as described and just as depicted in the pictures..... Like we said ......Magnificent House/Felt like Home!!! Thanks for sharing Clif!

                                                    hugh cottingham - retired

                                                    hugh c.

                                                    We, three older couples, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What attracts most is the screened in back porch ,where we spent 90 percent of our time. The cool breezes all day were very refreshing, since we came from florida temps of 103 degrees. The location is great. Equally spaced between Cashiers and Highlands. Plenty of shopping for the ladies.

                                                    A couple of minor problems, which I'm sure Clif will fix. Lights out in master bedroom, and low water pressure in upstairs bath.

                                                    Loved every minute of stay at this house and will definetly go back when opportunity arises.

                                                    Great location

                                                    Jim B.

                                                    We have rented several homes in Highlands over the years and this is one of our favorites. Very well furnished and a great screened porch to enjoy the cool fall days . Great location close to down town Highlands as well as a short drive to cashiers. Owner called to make sure every thing was to our satisfaction great customer service.

                                                    The Perfect Mountain Vacation

                                                    Joyce B.

                                                    We stayed 10 days at this wonderful cabin and did not want to leave! The furniture, linens, beds and decorations are luxurious and comfortable and the description is very accurate. It is extremely relaxing with two screened in porches with sofas, rocking chairs and dining tables surrounded by trees. We spent much of our time there. The cabin is close to Highlands and even though in a development feels very private. The owner was very helpful and made us feel extremely welcome. It was one of the best and most comfortable homes we have stayed in and give it our highest recommendation. We definitely want to return.

                                                    Quiet yet convenient location surrounded by nature

                                                    karen h.

                                                    Wonderful property, well-appointed. Feels like u r a guest in an upscale home. Beautifully decorated. No tired furnishings/linens here. LOVED the screened porches outfitted with comfy furniture for relaxing and dining. Good location between highlands and cashiers and a nice neighborhood for walking. Will b back!

                                                    Beutifully decorated home with "treehouse" feel

                                                    Kristen N.Austin, Texas

                                                    Our stay in this cabin was perfect. The home is beautifully decorated, I would guess professionally, with every detail attended to. The linens (towels and sheets) were luxurious! The homeowner was very responsive and kind. The home was well stocked with everything we needed for a week's stay. The best part of our experience was eating every meal outside on the screened porch. The decks truly made us feel as though we were in a treehouse. The secluded location on a lot full of trees made our stay extra special. Thank you, Clif, for sharing your home with us.
