Overview

Highlands Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, plus loft (Sleeps 9)

Welcome to Hunter's Lodge Elevation: 3950 FEET

(Can't find availability for this year? You can check next year's availability on my calendar below. Also check calendar often, we sometimes get a cancellation).

Spectacular, panoramic mountain view from sunrise to sunset. This custom built, luxury home is located on Highlands Mountain. 15 minutes from downtown Highlands. On top of Highlands Mountain. It is one of the the highest homes in the area, placed right next to forest service land for additional privacy and easy access to hiking trails. Maps for hiking trails are available in home.

****view is so expansive that you can see hawks and eagles soaring past the balconies*****

***this home was built by a renowned custom log home builder with handmade, custom features throughout entire home****

The house is fully stocked (towels, linens, soap, toilet tissue, garbage bags, paper towels, cleaning agents, etc.).400-1200 count sheets throughout. Temperpedic master bed. Down comforters throughout home. Thirsty towels throughout. The refrigerator has purified water. A fully stocked gourmet kitchen with mountain views awaits your culinary skills. Please bring charcoal if you plan on using outside grill. Also bring fire logs if you plan on using the outside fire pit. Marshmallow sticks are located next to outdoor fire pit in holder on side of barn. Please extinguish fire after enjoying the fire pit.

The property looks and feels like a 5 star mountain resort. Spend the day hiking on groomed, creekside mountain trails and your evening dining at an award winning restaurant in Highlands. We have run into town to buy supplies only to find ourselves still there 5 hours later exploring the many unique shops and trying a new restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. Coming home to this beautiful estate is priceless. Fireplaces inside and out will thrill you all 4 seasons with the push a a remote control button.

You have gone above & beyond to help make our visit perfect. We appreciate all you have done. We are looking forward to our visit in your lodge.

High on the Hog at Hunters Lodge in Highlands

  • 5 of 5
Magnificent 180 degree views. We watched the moon come up over the barn, the sun rise over the mountains and saw spectacular sunsets without having to leave the deck. We loved having total privacy with no signs of habitation in view and the only sounds coming from the birds singing and the mountain stream and falls in the valley below. Yet it's an easy 15-20 minute scenic drive to downtown Highlands through a National Forest along a beautiful mountain trout stream with waterfalls dotting the route. The deep covered porch area on the deck provides protection from elements and its tin roof plays a wonderful tune when it rains. We loved the new infrared outdoor gas grill. The large round outdoor dining table is sturdy and comfortably seats 6, The Kitchen is gourmet and fully stocked with every imaginable top end utensil, appliance and do-dad. The easy to operate indoor and outdoor gas fireplaces take the chill off and add romance. Beds are comfortable and the linens luxurious. Great, large TV's with excellent pictures lots of channels and extras and wireless internet that is simple to access and actually works. This truly is a lodge and is impressive in its stature, design, and furnishings. There are many nice touches like having the game room off kitchen and great room instead of in the basement. We appreciated the good paved roads to the property, the paved driveway and a real manicured lawn with flowers. The large level paved parking area and covered drive through entrance and level walk in are a bonus. None of us had a single bug bite after a week. We played horseshoes and spent most of our time outside on the deck reading, socializing and living high on the hog at Hunters Lodge. We have been coming to the mountains for years renting many beautiful mountain homes but Dj's Hunters Lodge is the best.

House had it all

  • 5 of 5
Really no complaints at all about the house. It fit our needs perfectly. Going into the weekend our only concern was what the third bedroom had to offer because there were no pic's of it. When we got there we wondered why there were no pic's. The bunk room that has 3 twin beds in it was a great room. Decorated nicely had an attached bathroom and was a nice size. Would definitely stay again. Owners are/were very responsive. When we got there we had some issues with the internet, which only needed a router reboot, and the owners helped us out immediately with it. highly recommend.

Snow on Halloween Night!

  • 5 of 5
After 27 years of mostly summer visits to Highlands, we woke up to a beautiful snow! This house is perfect- beautiful view, fantastic kitchen, interesting construction to ponder (my cold natured husband was able to stay warm as the house is definitely built for year round comfort), fabulous porch, and enough space so you have privacy if you want. We are definitely on for another stay. (Oh, and one of my favorite things was that it felt more like a hotel accommodation because we did not have to worry about about stripping the beds and washing towels as some rentals require!)

Perfect Weekend Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
I travel a lot and was only going to be home for a short break and thought it'd be nice for my friends and I to get away for a bit. We all have pretty busy lives and this location and trip was exactly what we all needed. The house was absolutely, gorgeously designed and the semi seclusion was perfect. The only thing we wish was that we could have stayed longer. Fall is by far our favorite season and coming up the mountain you are greeted with the lovely colorful abundance of trees and breathe taking waterfall. We didn't have too much time to explore but we didn't even feel the need to this time around. Just needing time to recharge, the home provided something for everyone from just being lazy on the comfy couches watching tv, cooking in the fully stocked kitchen, grilling outside on the outer deck in the crisp fall weather at night, and making s'mores for the first in the fire pit! If you just want to escape for a bit I definitely recommend this home!! We will surely return back next fall hopefully!

Great Cabin for family getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Hunter's Lodge was most enjoyable. Very comfortable digs with great view and privacy. Especially enjoyed the large kitchen, fireplaces, and ping-pong table. Would definitely go back. Caught a nice rainbow trout at the goldmine road bridge just down the road!
