Disappointment

  • 2 of 5
The house was in a nice location. It was private and I guess on 8 acres although most of it was wooded and hilly so it didn't really matter. We had been there about an hour when we encountered bees/ wasps on the porch. One of our party got stung so we went inside. We called the caretaker the next morning and he responded. When we inquired about the cleanliness of the house (or lack thereof) he told us that he wasn't sure that it had been cleaned. It certainly had not been vacuumed and we don't think that all the beds had been changed. The kitchen was in disarray also. We spent most of our time in downtown highlands and at restaurants so it wasn't a big problem-more of a disappointment. I have been to Highlands many times over the years and have stayed in multiple properties. I would not recommend this one to friends or family.

Amazing and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of 11 people. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the furnishings. Of course, the huge screened in back porch with a wood burning fireplace, a large futon, an overhead fan and a REAL screen door was the main gathering place, but there was also a covered front porch with 4 rockers that was used quite a bit and the den had comfy love seats perfect for reading, which by the way, there was an abundance of books, games & movies also provided. Plenty of large thick bath towels and a laundry that was quietly removed from the main course of house traffic. Hot shower water and good pressure. The kitchen was FULLY furnished, to the extent that you do not need to remember to bring the odd gadget that you may use at home, because there is probably one there! The beverage cooler was a very nice plus! All spices, cooking utensils, cookbooks, tableware, etc. furnished. 3 large tables with plenty of dining seating plus a "not your ordinary" picnic table and benches on the back deck if needed, easily moveable. There was a small porch off the kitchen with a charcoal grill. I did find it odd that none of the bedrooms had curtains on the windows, but the cabin is definitely secluded so unless one of your group is out there moving around, probably not a problem. Plenty of closet and storage space. There was a firepit with large flat stones perfect for seating, a charming tree swing and a swingset in the woods slightly away from the house - a parent or older child would need to accompany small children to use it. Plus - the waterfalls in the area were amazing!

Owner's Response: Jessica - thank you so much for the "amazing" review!! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed and were able to relax at our cabin! I appreciate that you detailed all the kitchen furnishings - I love to cook so we tried to supply it as we would at home. Sorry about the curtains in the bedrooms - or lack thereof - I don't believe it them!! I want to see the beauty of the surroundings! Again - thank you so much for visiting with us - we hope you will come again!

Whole family had a great time.

  • 5 of 5
My son was graduating Navy Nuclear Power School after which he'd have ten days leave before needing to report back to base and our younger children were preparing to start their back to school ritual so we decided to do an extended trip where the younger ones could get away for a bit before heading to school and our oldest could unwind some after the grueling school he'd just finished. This cabin fit the bill perfectly, our kids (4), in age from 20 to 10 and everybody enjoyed their stay. The younger ones went out to play at the waterfalls and my son spent most of his time lounging on the screened in porch. It was cool enough during our stay (end of July/beginning of August!), to have a fire going every night. Daily trips into town to shop but did not try any of the local restaurants due to the completeness of the kitchen. My son wasn't able to be home last year at Thanksgiving so my wife prepared a full Thanksgiving dinner there which we ate on the screened in porch overlooking the woods with a fire going behind us. Awesome. We will definitely check on this cabin again next time we plan an extended stay in this area. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Great Hiking and Dining weekend!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here last weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. The house is very nice, clean, updated, and there was plenty of room for 5 couples. I wouldn't say it is particularly homey but we spent most of our time on the porch which was truly amazing! You can definitely have a fire any time of year, just make sure to bring your own wood, We all wish it had been a little closer to town, but we had a great relaxing time and did a ton of hiking and going into town for dinner. Great weekend!

Great Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much for a great time in the Highlands. We were there with our 19-month old daughter and it really was a great spot for traveling with young kids. We lived on the screened in deck the entire week. Amy was very helpful throughout our stay too! Enjoyed the Highlands as well, wonderful public library if you venture into town with little ones! Took in fly fishing arranged by the Mt. Hiker, apple picking and the Farm at the Old Edwards Inn as an amazing spot for a wedding weekend to cap it all off!

Adult Family Outing

  • 5 of 5
We three couples enjoy great meals together in a warm and peaceful setting with occasional dinners out as well as occasional shopping, antiques, etc. This house was perfect from the great kitchen appliances to the fantastic screened in porch to the wonderful bed and bath accommodations and everything in between. The caretaker was more than accommodating and even returned a hair dryer I left behind. We would go again during the holidays but the time needed is partially taken. Such a disappointment.
