About Neil Van Hoogen

We came to the Highlands area in 1996 from Palm Beach County Florida after retiring (Show & Sell publications). We fell in love with the area and became 'accidental hands on developers' of Falling Waters a fifty two acre community....long story. We attend Community Bible Church, (one of the highlights of the area) where Paula sings in the choir. We keep busy taking care of the development...mowing, blowing leaves, weed wacking, planting flowers etc. We like to take short trips in our 5th wheel when we can.

Neil Van Hoogen purchased this apartment in 1998

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5
Nest for Two is adorable, clean and just perfect for a trip to Highlands. Enjoyed the peace and quiet and the pretty scenery from our private deck. Kitchen is fully stocked and there are lots of movies and books available for rainy days. Great location - only a few minutes drive to downtown. We can't say enough about this place - great find for a short weekend or a full week. Enjoy!

The Nest for Two

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful week in the mountains. Paula and Neil were delightful hosts who made us feel right at home. All amenities were superb and attention to detail was top notch. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Even Better Than Last Year!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent 3 days at the Nest for Two celebrating our 36th anniversary. We celebrated our 35th there last year, and the Nest immediately vaulted to the top of our list. It’s the only place we’ll stay in Highlands now!

You simply can't beat the combination of an easy-to-reach wooded setting, silence that's broken only by the sounds of crickets and cacadias at night, attractive and functional architecture, privacy, cleanliness, convenience, and a reasonable price. Neil and Paula are kind, gracious, and hospitable hosts who are there for you but never hover over you.

The forest view from the second-story porch is lovely and the cushioned chairs are comfy. The king bed is top-of-the-line, as are all of the kitchen appliances. For entertainment there's high speed Wi-Fi, Dish TV with a large flat-screen, and an assortment of movies, books, and games.

As the web page indicates, there are a number of half-day and full-day side trips you can take. There are the kinds of hikes I like - short and easy - and the kind my wife likes - long and strenuous.

There are also several dozen restaurants to choose from. At the top of our list are Wolfgang's, Lakeside, Paoletti's, and the Verandah. When you want a more economical meal, there are pizza and sandwich shops and the delicious eat-in or take-out full meals or sandwiches at the not-to-be-missed Mountain Fresh Grocery. Trust me, it's not your neighborhood Kroger deli counter.

Like I said in my review last year, different people look for different things when they're searching for a get-away. You may be looking for a different type of place and experience. But if you find yourself smiling as you view these pictures and as you read this information and these reviews, and if you say to yourself, "This is the kind of place I think I'd like," trust those feelings and make your reservation. You'll find the Nest for Two hard to beat. We enthusiastically recommend it and will be returning next year to celebrate number 37.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at the Next for Two. We really enjoyed it. The "Nest" has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The Nest was clean, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the shower is hot and soothing after a long hike. It is conveniently located near town but has the feel of being in the middle of nowhere, which we love. Paula and Neil are wonderful hosts. We immediately started looking at the calendar when we returned to Atlanta to see when we could go back. We definitely will be back again and again!

Best Anniversary EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for an extended weekend for our 20th wedding anniversary. I can't say enough how lovely this is. Every detail is perfect. I worked 3 years in a very high end Bed & Breakfast. They have nothing on this adorable getaway. Paula's sense of style is seen in every detail. The quality & unique style makes it feel amazing when you arrive. Bedding & towels high quality. Loved having a real tea pot to make morning tea. We had never been to this area before. Be ready to be blown away by the beauty & diversity. It is tucked away in a beautiful area, so close to all the places to shop & eat. We did enjoy hiking some, it would have been more, but due to rain that changed some of our plans. Did we care? No, we spend lazy mornings sleeping in (a luxury from busy schedules & kids) found a great little organic grocery. They had amazing stone fire pizzas, as well as great breakfast pastries. Ugly Dog Pub was fun & good food. Enjoyed late night movies & staying in. We did venture out to Cashiers & Franklin. We found ourselves just content & very happy to have the quiet. I may or may not slept in & taken a nap in the same day. My husband is a writer, and he was writing, while I got to relax too. This was a dream trip for us, just being together. I can tell you it won't be 20 years before we do this again.

Check out our favorite singer, Cy Timmons in The Hummingbird Lounge, at The Old Edwards Inn on Friday and Saturday eves at 8pm. Highlands Playhouse and PAC theater plays are 1st rate! Be sure and meet all the wonderful people at Bear Mountain Outfitters, @ 302 Main St., corner of 3rd and Main. The Highlands Nature Center has a beautiful walking areas. Dry Sink---for cooks & greeting card & gift aficionados. For take out and/or casual eat-in try Highlands Smokehouse and Mt. Fresh Grocery Store. Finally, walk UNDER 'Dry Falls' and visit Sunset Rock and watch the sunset over the top of our town! Priceless.
