About the property

Amazing Renovation, Best location in Highlands, walk to everything.

Simplicity. For over fifteen years we have been visiting the Highlands and honing our definition of the perfect weekend retreat- A simple luxurious place with plenty of room for friends and a location close enough to town so the car can stay parked as long as we want. We finally have the house to make this dream come true. With a fun rustic-modern vibe, the house is a short stroll from Main Street and The Old Edwards Inn and has room for up to ten. Three bedrooms upstairs and a separate sitting area, two bedrooms and a games nook downstairs makes the house ideal for large groups or two families to share. It has an open layout and is ideal for entertaining, wedding parties, girl's weekends, guy's weekends, dogs-playing poker weekends... It also has a two car garage. This is the place for your Highlands adventures.

Walk to world class shopping, a day at the spa, the ice cream shops, great restaurants, or take a short trip to countless outdoor adventures. The wifi will let you stay plugged in, the 48' HD flat screen will let you catch the game, and a brand new deck and grill out back invite you to enjoy the beautiful climate at 4118 feet above sea level. Walk to Harris Lake, where you can feed the ducks (or geese, we don't discriminate) or do a little fishing.

This happy house is comfortable, casual and smack in the middle of all the Highlands action...everything you need for a wonderful escape to the mountains!

Clean & comfortable with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is outstanding, light and bright inside with comfortable seating and sleeping arrangements. Linens were on all of the beds and the owners left great insight on the local attractions, restaurants and markets which we found fantastic. The location is very convenient and within walking distance to everything town has to offer.

Wonderful home which we really enjoyed while exploring Highlands. I lost a Fitbit and Laird was very helpful in getting it back to me -- I really felt he went the extra mile. You couldn't ask for a nicer host!

Excellent home just as advertised! We had four couples for culinary weekend and the house was plenty for us. It is much more spacious than pictures lead you to believe. Decor is great and the location just puts it over the top; literally a 6 min. walk to Mountain Fresh Grocery and 10 min. to The Ugly Dog. Would absolutely stay here again. Thank you Laird.

Beautiful home, great space

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful, had great space and they were so easy to work with!

We rented the home for a family wedding that was at Old Edwards and everything was walkable, convenient and the house was super clean. There is a great downstairs with 2 bedrooms if a family wanted to separate off with their kids and have some space. My sister took that for her family of 4 and it worked perfectly to give them a place to hang out. This also shares a backyard with another property they own which we rented as well, it worked out famously for our families!

We love to go to the wine garden at Old Edwards or Gem mining with the kids. Or just spend a lazy day feeding the ducks at the lake and curling up by the fireplace reading a book or watching the game.
