Great location for Highlands

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Laurel. Since we were in Highlands to get to know the town better to possibly consider buying a second home there, the proximity to shops/restaurants and even the farmer's market was very important to us. The apartment was well-equipped and comfy. It is truly walking distance to downtown Highlands. My husband also appreciated the ability to play tennis on the town courts right across the street.

My wife and I spent our anniversary here and it was more than expected! A quick five minute walk had us in the heart of downtown. Plenty of dining and entertainment options all around this home. The house itself had a VERY comfortable bed and was much bigger than expected! We had a great time here and will be staying again!

What a perfect apartment! We loved everything about this place - great location, comfortable bed, plenty of room, washer & dryer. I am so glad we stayed here! Our time in Highlands was so relaxing. We will most definitely be back, and this will be our first choice accommodation.

Noise stay

  • 3 of 5

We would like to inform the owners there is a construction going on in front of the property that make the situation very busy with trucks and workers lots of noise from very early in the morning until 7:30 pm.

Please notify people of this unpleasant inconvenience!

Sincerely yours,

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry Nancy. I've been in touch with the owners of the property under construction and was told that they are going to be finished by the beginning of July and apparently they stepped up the number of workers in order to facilitate their deadline. I certainly didn't realize the hours they were working. Once it's done, it will be a great asset for our renters but agreeably, very aggravating until then. Again, my apologies.

Close to downtown

  • 3 of 5

Clean and close to downtown. Was a bit disappointed in the outside and ambiance of the property outside. We were in town for wedding so didn't spend a lot of time there but would have liked a patio/porch with more of a view than a parking lot.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a great time in Highlands! Sorry to hear you were less then satisfied with our scenery. We landscape the property but being located on the second floor above an office this close to Main Street, we are limited in our ability to offer a yard for view. The deck is more than spacious though and there is green space bordering the parking area. We also get a variety of wildlife coming through considering our downtown location which can make the time on the porch a little more interesting!

Beautiful, close walk to downtown

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed, including a coffee maker, ironing board, linens and even corn hole boards! It is a short 3 block walk to the village. We felt closer to some of the places downtown than some of our friends who were staying on the other end of Main St. I would recommend this for a couple or family with children who can stay on the pullout couch.
