Great rental- clean and bright. Nice house on a good sized property with large, bright bedroom. Windows on three sides provided nice views of Highland Lake. Unfortunately our weather was rather chilly and rainy for a good part of our stay. Nice sunsets when the weather cooperated, though! The lake is beautiful and the location quite nice. Cell service was iffy for us but there is a landline phone available for use in a pinch. Well appointed kitchen had everything we needed to cook complete meals. Especially loved the grill top on the Viking stove- perfect for us since we weren't able to use the new gas grill because of weather. Towns of Keene & Hillsborough are within 20-30 mins. Check out Tooky Mills Pub in H'Boro for great pub food at reasonable prices. In Keene, stop by Fritz's for a beer and and the best french fries you'll ever eat! (The sandwiches were real good, too, but- man...those fries!)
Future renters should be aware that the deck had no railings on it and there was quite a drop off two sides (3 to 4 foot drop at the lake side of it). The angle of the photos are deceiving and make it appear as if it's just a short step down. The oversize table on the deck with chairs doesn't leave much room to maneuver and if one isn't paying attention it's not at all a stretch to imagine falling off. We exercised particular caution when on the deck. Also, the parking area is situated above the house with no steps down to the home, just a little slope down to the front door. It was a little muddy from all the rain, though, and I was concerned about slipping. Previous renter remarked about the steep road with a trailer in tow. Approaching or leaving the property via Pinetop Road (just a few 10ths of a mile from the road this home is on) is the way to go- much more gradual and far less hair-raising!
Owner was a pleasure to deal with and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Thank you, Natalie, for accommodating our late rental request due to my husband's unpredictable work schedule. (P.S. Dog enjoyed his vacation, too!)
