Full kitchen including dish washer, new king size bed 2016.. Spacious ,light and airy with windows on 4 sides. Located in beautiful and well groomed Falling Waters community. Nice walking neighborhood, very little traffic, mostly easy terrain..go up to Hide Away Hill if you like more challenge or walk down to the bottom of the falls if you want burning buns.

About Neil Van Hoogen

We came to the Highlands area in 1996 from Palm Beach County Florida after retiring (Show & Sell publications). We fell in love with the area and became 'accidental hands on developers' of Falling Waters a fifty two acre community....long story. We attend Community Bible Church, (one of the highlights of the area), where Paula sings in the choir. We keep busy taking care of the development...mowing, blowing leaves, weed whacking, planting flowers etc. We like to take short trips in our 5th wheel when we can.

Neil Van Hoogen purchased this apartment in 1998

Clean, beautiful, quiet and secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Love the place. The owners are wonderful people and they offer a high quality experience for their guests. The place has a beautiful deck and the amenities of the "cabin" have been well thought out to give a home away from home experience for their guests. Be assured of a relaxing experience.

The hosts are wonderful yet unobtrusive.

A perfect perch for a mountain get-away. Everything you need is here and it is all lovely. You feel like you are alone in a mountain forest. Loved sitting on the little deck smelling the mountain air and listening to the birds sing.

Owner's Response: We always say--the best part of being away from the hustle of your everyday life is the part where you get to SIT STILL. It takes a few days to settle down, but once that is realized, peace can enter your soul!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the highlands and staying in the Nest. Neil and Paula were so hospitable and made our stay feel very personalized. The place is very clean, quiet, and restful. We can't wait to come back!
