Wonderful Place With A Wonderful View & Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was well appointed and decorated—you can tell the owners have put a lot of thought behind it. We thoroughly enjoyed walking to and from downtown Highlands for breakfast each morning—great exercise. This place has a fantastic view. Until we buy our own place near the Highlands, we'll be coming back to stay.

Wonderful little loft with a breathtaking mountain view! All the amenities you need and fantastic location to parks/hikes and walkable to downtown. We loved everything about our stay and would absolutely come back again!

Quiet, view of gorgeous mountains

  • 4 of 5

Minihof is a “mini” drive to downtown Asheville and yet tucked away. It is upstairs over a garage but don’t let that deter you, you have a better view from there. Nice soft linens & bed, loved having the kitchen and especially the keurig. Surprisngly nice touch: giant 2-inch cube ice cube trays for cocktails and a scrabble board. Feel of a large studio apartment. What would I change? Maybe a larger TV and an ironing board. And a few more lights, we like to read...Very pleasant & comfortable stay

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The owner is easy to contact and so helpful. The beautiful cabin provided phenomenal views and was so close to the Main Street of shops, theater, and restaurants. Such a pleasurable weekend in Highlands!

Mountain Range Haven

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased!! The property was absolutely gorgeous, more so than we could have dreamed! It was very Tastefully and beautifully decorated, very clean, very comfortable! We wanted to take the bed home with us. In fact it was so beautiful and comfortable there that we didn't even want to leave the room, we could have just sat out on the decks or in the room with the beautiful view. The pictures really do not do it justice, it is even more lovely than the pictures show. And the location was perfect!! 3 minutes to Main Street. We haven't stopped talking about it since we left, and we are definitely going to return as soon as possible. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to have a relaxing time away from home with all the conveniences of home. Definitely an A+ rating for us.
