Overview

Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-10)

This charming home is located just one and a half miles from Main Street - just past the Highlands Country Club. The 20 foot by 30 foot living room is brand new with a wonderful view of the property. Below the living room, sits a new master bedroom with a jacuzzi in the luxurious master bath.

The large dining room seats ten comfortably. There are two guest bedrooms up and two guest bedrooms down - all with private baths. The kitchen opens to a covered deck with a beautiful view of the waterfalls and pond.

We have recently added a second waterfall and pond on the other side of the house. There are 4 stone patios to enjoy the outdoors as well as 5 wooden decks.

No smoking indoors, please!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great time we had in Highlands! The house is gorgeous -so spacious and pleasant - and the location is wonderful! Just a short drive to Main Street! Loved that each bedroom has its own bath. Beautifully decorated and so comfortable!

I rented this property as my children wanted to have a Thanksgiving together. It was wonderful. The owners were accommodating and very helpful. Like a museum, but nice for all ages. We really enjoyed. Would recommend for all family's to try once.

Simply outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just exceptional both inside and out!! The interior is both gorgeous and comfortable. Besides the 5 beautiful bedrooms and baths, it is hard to remember all the principal rooms within the house that we used - the spectacular living room, the cozy library, the sunny family room, the lovely lower living room, and not to forget the charming sunroom. The outdoors is equally inviting with several stone patios and decks as well as 4 gazebos. we also enjoyed sitting listening to the two waterfalls. My big group was never crowded as the property has so much room inside and out! A true gem!

We will be going back next June!

Wedding Trip

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 couples staying and all of us had wonderful things to say about the house. There are plenty of areas to get away in the house and I used the beautiful extra large living area to work on my computer, I had to finish up the rehearsal dinner video.

The property was well maintained, area quiet and close to town. The owner was always available if you had any questions. THere are many different collections in the house which we were surprised to see in a rental home.

We would recommend this home to anyone wanting an upscale home in Highlands. It does not have a mountain view but you feel as though you are in the woods. There are several areas outside to sit though the main deck off of the kitchen could have been a little larger. The water fall was controlled by a switch which was extremely convenient.

Owner was easy to work with, would stay again with large group.

Home away #183119

The house is charming and was plenty of room for my large

family. There is plenty of seating areas both inside and outside.

The kitchen is a bit small and not much room for storing groceries.

The washing machine and dryer are old and do not function well.

Some of the appliances in the kitchen are old,namely the toaster.

We would have liked to use the downstairs refrigerator but it was full of

the owner's food. The bannister going downstairs was loose and could

have caused an accident. There was a lamp in one of the rooms that had

a short and had to be unplugged. The owners were very hospitable and helpful.

Owner's Response: Seems like the guest chose to dwell on a few small problems rather than the overall charm and comfort of the house and gardens. The house and grounds are beautiful and perfect for a large group! I was never informed of a problem during their stay. I was there about 4 days after they checked in and nothing was said. I was only informed of the problem with the bannister when the guests were leaving. I was only 30 minutes away so could have taken care of the bannister and lamp immediately. Both items have been repaired. The washing machine and dryer are old but function perfectly as does the toaster. All major appliances in the kitchen are less than a year old. Also, I do not advertise that there are 2 refrigerators in the house, so why would they be disappointed that the owner's refrigerator was not for their use. The guests had the use of a side-by-side refrigerator in the main kitchen. Colin

Highlands House a Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this lovely home for our daughter's destination wedding in Highlands. It was everything the pictures and descriptions portrayed and then some! The home is spacious and warm with gorgeous decor and furnishings. The numerous sitting areas both inside and out gave everyone plenty of options to spread out or gather. The two waterfall/water gardens are especially hard to leave, even when it is time for bed. Another advantage of this lovely home is its close proximity to the town of Highlands.

This is a MUST STAY!
