We have traveled a good bit looking for a place to live where nature and development are carefully balanced and where the air is cool and refreshing. We enjoy the outdoors, hiking and fishing, yet we also wanted to have a garden, to admire the ever changing flora and occasionally to dine at excellent restaurants with friendly people. All things considered, we think Highlands is unbeatable, from its natural beauty and history to its culture of art galleries, music and cuisine for every taste. This is truly an enchanted place where the clouds sometimes linger in the valleys while cascading over the hills, where most animals are protected, and where the streams, rivers and lakes are wild and beautiful, yet easily enjoyed when fishing, canoeing or simply walking. The trails offer magnificent views of waterfalls, distant ranges and the early history of this land. The town and area offer enough in the way of activity to fill every day of our lives, yet privacy, peace and rest are always available on demand.

Why did we choose the Holt Knob neighborhood? -----It is not easy to find a house in Highlands that has a quiet location within true walking distance of Main Street and that also offers an exceptional view. Our home in the Holt Knob neighborhood has this rare combination. We made our decision to buy the house within a few hours after we had seen this comfortable and well appointed home. Frequently, we leave our car parked in our garage and walk to the Main Street Inn to enjoy breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the afternoon. Also, we like to spend relaxing evenings on our screen porch admiring the western sunset.
