Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)

Spacious 'in-town' residence (at an elevation of 4,000 feet) located within a 12 minute walk to town, the Kelsey trail or the nature center. This family home will sleep up to 10. Upper and lower decks overlook Highlands’ main street and several mountain ranges. The home is on a 2 acre wooded lot at the end of a quiet cul de sac.

The large kitchen opens to a high vaulted great room with a beautiful stacked stone fireplace and dining room with seating for up to 10. If needed, this main floor and kitchen are handicap accessible from the garage with an elevator just inside.

On the top floor are 2 bedrooms, both with wonderful mountain views: A large master bedroom (King bed) and a double sink bathroom with separate tub and shower; and a second bedroom (queen bed) with full bath. The main level has one bedroom (2 single beds) and full bath. This bedroom opens out to a quaint covered sitting porch, which connects to the expansive deck. The downstairs has another master bedroom (king bed) and full bath. Also downstairs is a smaller children's bedroom with 2 single beds. Both are accessible from a large downstairs living area, which opens out to the expansive lower deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at your lovely home in Highlands during our daughter's

wedding weekend. It was perfect for our family with adult children, 2

grandchildren and a friend. The location was perfect to town and had a

tremendous view from the huge deck.The rooms were comfortable and beautifully

furnished.There was plenty of parking and a convenient outdoor screen porch.

Several friends asked if we could come back for a girl's weekend . I can't wait to return

and hopefully in a season to use the fantastic fireplace.

Thank you so much.

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautiful home! It was spotless when we arrived and so inviting! It's close to town and easy to get to also!

The decor is so warm and comfortable making you want to extend your trip! The views from the house were unbelievable. I would rent this home again in a heartbeat!

Ladies Group - Maggi

We stayed Sunday thru Thursday. We loved sitting on the porch in the am drinking coffee and pm with wine. We had 5 ladies and we all had our own space. The house was perfect for us and we will return again.

The Best 50th Birthday Weekend Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time celebrating a friends's 50th Birthday in our amazing Highlands mountain get-away. The space was both perfect for group gatherings but with cozy nooks for rest and relaxation. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and updated and the views were absolutely spectacular. I would love to plan a return visit!

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious house with stunning views close to downtown Highlands! Perfect for large families as there are two separate living spaces (with one shared kitchen). We ate almost all of our meals on the screen porch and enjoyed countless hours on the outdoor decks. The furniture is comfortable, the owner is great to rent from, the house is close to wonderful hikes and shops, and the views can't be beat. We only wish we would have had more time to try out the fireplace. Perfect Fall Getaway!

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Highlands for my nephew's wedding. The experience we had with this rental was perfect...from the first contact with the owner to the day we had to leave. We were a family of eight adults and two small children and this home had everything we needed. The home was just beautiful, every room was perfect, VERY clean, comfortable beds, well stocked with towels, and every day provisions that we needed. The kitchen had anything and everything we needed! The views were magnificent and the location made it easy for us to drive to all of the wedding activities and a quick trip to down town Highlands. We have rented many homes and condos over the years and the owner of this property was a joy to work with. She made us feel so welcome in her home and always communicated quickly...truly a pleasure to work with. This was a very positive experience.

Gem of a Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home with a family of 7 grown adults and it was perfect for us. Since I was responsible for booking the trip, I arrived early to find just what I was hoping to find and just what I expected. In addition to very comfortable space inside, the home has 2 balconies, 2 covered porches & a screened in dining area, so we basically lived outside, starting with our coffee in the morning and ending with drinks in the evening while enjoying the cool mountain breezes.

The owner was extremely helpful in making dining suggestions and had left great information on hiking, shopping and other activities in the area.

Although very close to downtown, it's best to plan on driving as the roads are narrow and steep.

We loved our stay in the Highlands area and would absolutely recommend this beautifully maintained home. Everyone in the family talked about how wonderful it was to share the common areas of the home together instead of staying in a hotel. An A+ stay in an A+ destination.
