We have been enjoying the mountains and especially the town of Highlands for many years. We planned and built our dream home in afer a great deal of thought and research. Our goal was to have a comfortable, warm and inviting home that could be enjoyed by our loving family and our wonderfully fun friends. It is exactly what we had envisioned, and we feel fortunate to be able to share it with others.
Rob Owen purchased this house in 1999
It is close to Atlanta, our primary home, and the temperature is typically 10 degrees cooler. Highlands is known for its excellent restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities.
Close to town, a 15 minute walk, the open, spacious floor plan and professionally decorated rooms are designed for comfort and relaxation. It affords proximity to town plus the peaceful privacy of a cul-de-sac location. Great walking and hiking in the neighborhood.
So glad I splurged for the house since I fractured my foot the day before our hiking trip! I had a lovely stay... we entertained our local friends for dinner and enjoyed the porch and the wonderful green space around the house. I especially (being home-bound) enjoyed the library of books (and the magazine I accidentally had to send back) and the organized manner of the kitchen. My favorite is hearing the hymns from the church bells in town and the spontaneous drop-in of cute neighbors. The commaradarie of Highlands is dear.
My husband and I rented Maplewood for 5 of us to stay in for the week of our son's wedding. (Our grand dog joined us towards the end of the week.) The house was so comfortable that we felt like we were at home. We loved the porch and started and ended many of our days there. It's like you are in a tree house up in the high branches of the surrounding trees. I enjoyed cooking several nights in the well equipped Kitchen. The weather was lovely and we had windows and doors open to enjoy the breeze. We love Highlands and Maplewood and can't wait to return.
We just completed an absolutely delightful stay in one of the most beautiful homes in Highlands. From the privet hedge with private gate in the front, to the stunning views off of the screen porch in back. It was perfection. The home was exquisitely appointed throughout. Hard to believe it was a rental. The kitchen had everything you could want or need. The floor plan was well adapted to having privacy for more than one couple. The proximity to some of the hiking trails was a bonus for us. The owner made himself available for questions but was not the least bit intrusive. We cannot wait to return next year. NYK in Houston
We have been coming to Highlands for close to 20 years now and Maplewood is by far one of the nicest - if not THE nicest - property we've stayed in. The location is excellent both in terms of proximity to town and for just taking a nice walk alone or with the dog. The home itself is very tastefully appointed, while still maintaining a welcoming air. If only we could have had more time there! It truly was a pleasure working with Rob - he is extremely easy to work with and it's clear that he really wants his renters to have an amazing experience.
Renting Maplewood for a three-day getaway was a great experience from start to finish. Rob was so nice and easy to work with on the arrangements, and the home itself is absolutely lovely. It worked out perfectly for four adults and one small dog--providing great communal spaces as well as end-of-day privacy in spacious bedrooms with their own private baths. The home is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The location is wonderful--very close to town and all of the sites, restaurants and shopping of Highlands. Really, there was not a single thing about this rental that I would change. This is by far the best rental experience we have had, and we would highly recommend Maplewood. I hope we will have the opportunity to return.
We had a family gathering in the Highlands with extended family staying in the area, and 3 couples were fortunate enough to stay at Maplewood. We were thrilled with the home and property and didn't want to leave! We have stayed in various VRBO homes, but never one as well-appointed as this one. I cannot imagine anyone needing something that wasn't available in the house. It was beautifully decorated, cozy, warm and wonderful in every way. We also loved the close proximity for walks down into town. The deck is great for large groups, and we were able to have a sit-down dinner in the dining room for 14 people as well. It's really quite lovely and the owners are great to work with too-- very helpful and accessible. Thanks for a perfect week! The only thing needed was more time to explore, read your books and magazines, and shop!
Short Walk, under a mile, to town of Highlands and there is a new Hiking trail up Big Bear Pen Mountain and down to the Biological Station.
