Lovely home, Beautiful property, and a Friendly, Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5
The Green House was a great find for our family over New Years week this year. The location on a mountain road in Highlands feels completely remote, but it's only a mile to the grocery store, liquor store, shops and restaurants of Highlands.

The house itself is charming--a well-kept cottage with a nice mix of old-home-charm and newer updates. Two of the bathrooms appear to be newly remodeled, and the kitchen is well-equipped--even if you're cooking for a big family. As other reviewers have said, the listing photos don't really do the property justice. You can sit on the covered porch and look out at the beautiful waterfall and down to the pond below. It's an ethereal, wonderful location we'll never forget.

The other thing that sets this property apart is the responsiveness and consideration of the owner. We had a couple small concerns on our arrival, and Leslie called me back within 5 minutes and had a handyman on site within 15. She made a point to follow up the next day to make sure everything was fine for us. We rent VRBOs a lot and are well aware that this kind of concern for the happiness of a renting family is exceptional. In addition to being friendly and helpful, Leslie has stocked the house with a ton of basic supplies our family usually has to buy for every rental. A small supply of laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, hand soaps in the bathrooms, paper towels, and fire wood meant less stress and fewer trips to the store for us.

If you stay at the Green House, be sure to visit Highland's waterfalls (we loved Dry Falls and Bridal Veil Falls) and take half a day to climb up White Side Mountain (the views are worth every step). We ate at a few of the restaurants in town and found both the service and food to be excellent at the two most basic places we visited: Asian House (by the post office) and the Ugly Dog Pub were both excellent.

We hope to visit the Green House again one day soon!

Thanksgiving Gathering

Beautiful location. Lots of room for extended family. So close to downtown Highlands. Great den and well-equipped kitchen. Cozy - even on a snowy, cold Thanksgiving Day. Owner very responsive.

Summer Shangri-la!

  • 5 of 5
My family gathered from near and far for a much anticipated family reunion at the lovely Green House in late June. Wow..what is not to love? The sound of the trickling waterfall, quiet privacy, lush gardens and fairytale pond, not to mention the cozy upgraded furnishings and spectacular covered deck made for memory making at its finest. Though it rained for much of our stay, no one seemed to mind as it provided lots of opportunity for exchanging the details of hectic lives for lollygagging and telling tales. The house is close to everything in Highlands which made a sprint to shopping, hiking trails and the Botanical Center possible between showers. On Saturday evening, we made the trek down the "waterfall road" to Franklin's Cafe Rel, a real treat, and were rewarded with a double rainbow on the drive back. When the time came to go, my most persnickety family member asked if we could come back again next year. Thank you so much for allowing us this time together in your mountain paradise!

A WONDERFUL retreat!

  • 5 of 5
A family wedding drove the need for a family reunion from across the country. The Green House offered a wonderfully relaxing environment with all the modern facilities for all the kids and all the adults alike. The yard and stream provided some exploration while the PORCH was the highlight - open but covered, a fire for the evening chill, candle light provided a most relaxing evening after a busy time at the events. Easy to get to, but away from the noise and activity, the Green House was exactly what we needed. A great alternative to the standard hotel environment for your group.
