We have been enjoying the mountains and especially the town of Highlands for many years. We planned and built our dream home in afer a great deal of thought and research. Our goal was to have a comfortable, warm and inviting home that could be enjoyed by our loving family and our wonderfully fun friends. It is exactly what we had envisioned, and we feel fortunate to be able to share it with others.
Rob Owen purchased this house in 1999
It is close to Atlanta, our primary home, and the temperature is typically 10 degrees cooler. Highlands is known for its excellent restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities.
Close to town, a 15 minute walk, the open, spacious floor plan and professionally decorated rooms are designed for comfort and relaxation. It affords proximity to town plus the peaceful privacy of a cul-de-sac location. Great walking and hiking in the neighborhood.
Renting Maplewood for a three-day getaway was a great experience from start to finish. Rob was so nice and easy to work with on the arrangements, and the home itself is absolutely lovely. It worked out perfectly for four adults and one small dog--providing great communal spaces as well as end-of-day privacy in spacious bedrooms with their own private baths. The home is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The location is wonderful--very close to town and all of the sites, restaurants and shopping of Highlands. Really, there was not a single thing about this rental that I would change. This is by far the best rental experience we have had, and we would highly recommend Maplewood. I hope we will have the opportunity to return.
We had a family gathering in the Highlands with extended family staying in the area, and 3 couples were fortunate enough to stay at Maplewood. We were thrilled with the home and property and didn't want to leave! We have stayed in various VRBO homes, but never one as well-appointed as this one. I cannot imagine anyone needing something that wasn't available in the house. It was beautifully decorated, cozy, warm and wonderful in every way. We also loved the close proximity for walks down into town. The deck is great for large groups, and we were able to have a sit-down dinner in the dining room for 14 people as well. It's really quite lovely and the owners are great to work with too-- very helpful and accessible. Thanks for a perfect week! The only thing needed was more time to explore, read your books and magazines, and shop!
Rob, we have stayed in a number of homes in Highlands, many of which are VRBO properties. Your home is by far the finest we have ever stayed in. We liked it so much that we stayed the whole month of September! We will certainly come again, as it is a perfect location for us and the home is superbly furnished and appointed.

Our family has had the pleasure of renting this beautiful home on many occasions and we always look forward to our next visit. The setting is picturesque for this exquisitely designed home offering every amenity. The oversized fireplace; screened porch and deck; chefs kitchen and private bath for each oversized bedroom, provide an elegant yet comfortable home for your vacation. Within walking distance of the Highlands town center, you are also close to beautiful hiking trails. A wonderful vacation retreat is in store for anyone who chooses to rent this home for their family to enjoy.
My husband and I along with good friends from Houston, Tx spent four lovely nights in this truly amazing home! I was impressed by the pictures and reviews of this house, but let me just say.....they do not do it justice. You have to see it for yourself! In over 30 years I have never rented a house in Highlands with the amenities and conveniences of Maplewood. It has every convenience of home and more! From the spotless condition of the home and the luxury linens to the well stocked, gourmet kitchen, it is just perfect!!! The weather was chilly enough for a fire in the huge stone fireplace and the front porch was piled high with firewood. The evenings were delightful and we enjoyed cocktails out on the screened porch surrounded by the quiet and beautiful hardwoods changing colors. The landscaping here is magnificent and I can't wait to go back in the spring and summer when everything is blooming.
The owner is so gracious and accommodating and was just a text or phone call away when I had a question. That was very reassuring. We had only been home a few days, when our deposit refund check came in the mail! The owner was prompt and thorough with every detail and we enjoyed our experience of renting from him.
In closing, I will just add one more comment...If you rent this house, you will not be disappointed and you WILL want to go back!
Looking forward to next time!
My husband and I and another ,couple enjoyed this ,wonderful home over Thanksgiving holiday. we couldn't have been more comfortable or ,had a better house to celebrate in. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for the kitchen and serving. After a big dinner, we built a fire and all grabbed books from a huge supply and chilled out. You would never be disappointed in this lovely house. The owner is so nice and helpful. Everything was perfect when we arrived. I will be back for sure. What a treasure this holiday was.
