Loved everything about this home!!
We enjoyed our visit to this stunning home set in the trees with wrap around porch! Silence and fresh air will rejuvenate the city dwellers. From the moment we arrived we felt so comfortable! The interior is beautifully decorated but also very cozy with well planned lighting to give the most beautiful glow at night. The kitchen is a dream and we enjoyed cooking every night and sitting on the porch with the string lights dimmed above us. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home we hope to return soon!
Wonderful everything! The area, the house, the decor was beautiful. Amy was so sweet. We will be back!
Enjoyed stay. Battery became low on fire alarm and beeped loudly in middle of night. Fireplace outside did not work. Did not try indoor fireplace.
Otherwise stay was very nice.
We apologize for the smoke detector going off in the night, an unfortunate time for the batteries to get low. However, we have replaced it with a new and improved one to avoid that happening in the future.
The outside fireplace works off propane and the lead pipe has to be turned on before attempting to light. We cannot leave the propane on in the outside area as the wind will blow out the pilot, leaving the gas to escape. Thank you for noting this and we have left separate printed instructions for both fireplaces in the house, in addition to the ones on our Lease Notes. Hopefully this will be helpful to future guests!
For our valued future guests, always contact Amy if you have any concerns with fireplace or anything while staying at Highland House. She is just minutes away and can solve any problems, including lighting the fireplace! In addition, she and her husband, Dan, are delightful to meet!
Thank you for your stay at Highland House!
Very, very nice
Very good. Privacy, but not far away from things
Beautiful Property for a Peaceful Getaway
We loved our stay in this beautiful home. It was like being in an interior design gallery. If you appreciate style and class, you'll love this property. The Hot Springs spa (I know this brand very well and it's top of the line) was great to melt away aches, pains, and stress. The local Mentone restaurants had delicious cuisine. Lynna was great to work with. We're already checking our calendar to plan a future visit!
Beautiful Home in the Woods - With a Hot Tub
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The house is surrounded by trees, offering privacy and much appreciated shade. Yet, the house is located very close to the area of Mentone that has the restaurants and shops. The wrap-around porch has multiple areas for reading and relaxing. The screened-in patio provided additional space for relaxation; we especially enjoyed the huge hot tub. The house itself is tastefully decorated and includes a well-equipped kitchen with a gas stove. We definitely will be renting this home again in the future.
