Great location and close to town

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a lovely long weekend with our grown daughters and family dogs in this quiet and wooded neighborhood. The decks (upper and lower) are large and partially covered for enjoying whether it rains or shines. The fenced back yard is perfect for enjoying with pets. The owner was so very helpful and easy to reach if needed. We would love to visit again!

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5
Great location. 10 minute walk to town and to Mirror Lake . You feel like you are out in the woods but only minutes from town. Well kept neighborhood is great to walk around . House is situated on Mill Creek at bottom of large hill, so walk to town is uphill but it's downhill on the way back! Great deck off the kitchen that looks into the woods. You can hear stream from the deck. Deck has fire pit and JennAir grill. Flat panel tv in main living area and main floor bedroom, but not in kitchen/ den. We had 6 people there and we had plenty of room and space. While the house is older , it's very comfortable and has every amenity you need. Pets allowed with permission which is a big plus. Being from Texas , we really enjoyed 7 days of cool mountain air, a beautiful view , and no bugs!

Amazing with all the extra that make it so comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We came to Highlands for a wedding and we so lucky to find this beautiful home. Everything we so above our expectations. The art in the home was lovely, they extra attention to fine soaps, candles, wine on the counter, made it so comfortable. When we arrived the owner stopped by to make sure we were settled in, and reminded us that we were welcome to use their canoe. My children caught trout right behind the house (we released them). and spend most of the day building a dam while my husband and I sat in the waterfront gazebo and shared that bottle of wine.
Loved all the fireplaces, especially one in the downstairs master bedroom. Also, downstairs had a coffee maker and refrid. This was nice to stay snuggled in and not have to go upstairs and wake everyone first thing in the morning.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
Location was good. Pantry stocked well. Living room was too musty to sit in for long. Kitchen dining area wasn't adequate. Dining table cluttered with hard to move accessories which took up all the space. Chairs were much too low for the table. House was dark, with overly cluttered walls. This place needs refresh badly, and a bit of style. Bathroom mirror-cabinet was falling apart and dangerous. Light bulbs were burned out in many area. Deck furniture needs new cushions. Grill was out of gas. This should have been a lot better.

Great location

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed the house and the location. We were able to shop in town, skip back to the rental and grab our swim suits as the weather cleared and head to our favorite swimming spots. We also enjoyed being so close to the many dining options, grocery store and the Highlands Playhouse. It was a great stay.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this home over Memorial Day and loved it. The home is lovely, and the setting is perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and hearing Mill Creek. The lower deck next to the creek enjoys a lovely view. We walked to town and to the Bascom and Rec Center in the Highland Greenway. I would definitely stay here again.

Evenings you will be in the creekside gazebo with a fire and friends you meet that day on Kelsey Trail. Open floor plan is perfect for entertaining. Upstairs master and two downstairs bedrooms keeps your company close, but far enough away : ) Both upstairs and downstairs have decks and large common areas for entertaining.
