About the property

Sleeps 6. 2bdrm. WiFi. 2 Blocks From Main St. Newly Renovated!

Park the car and forget about your worries. Only two blocks from Main St. You can wake up and walk to town for a hot cup of coffee and return to a grand fireplace, WiFi and songbirds singing outside your window.

An easy stroll to shopping, a day at the Old Edwards spa, ice cream shops, great restaurants, and countless outdoor adventures. Or take a few steps to Harris Lake, where you can feed the ducks and geese (who amazingly ALWAYS seem hungry), or do a little fishing.

The house has an open layout with a bedroom and bath nicely separated on either side of the house, a garage for the car you won't need, and a covered porch for relaxing and enjoying the cool mountain air.

Perfect In-Town location.. Have stayed 2x in less than a year!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the best long weekend in Highlands and a 3 night stay at this lovely home! The home is cozy, well decorated with out being kitschy and has everything you need to for your stay (hair dryer, coffee maker, wine opener, washer/dryer, plates/cups/glasses, well stocked kitchen tools, towels, Netflix etc etc) Enjoy the front porch and wave to neighbors. Take an evening stroll to Sunset Rock which is an easy 20 - 30 minute walk away! Speaking of walking, being able to walk a few blocks for morning coffee (Bucks, Mountain Fresh), a fabulous dinner (Cyprus) or a late night drink (lookin at you Ugly Dog and Lost Hiker) makes the house even better. The owners are wonderful to work with and I have already recommended the house to friends who will be staying in April. They have a joint property directly behind this home. If you have a larger group/family, could easily rent both and not feel separated. All around perfect!

Perfect location, cozy home, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this lovely home while scouting out venues for my upcoming wedding. It was such a warm, inviting home! The location is within easy walking distance to Main Street - which was perfect for walking home from Ugly Dog later in the evening. We didn't eat at home but kitchen was well stocked. The home is well decorated. A mountain vibe without being too kitschy. Comfortable bed and sofa too! Walked to Sunset Rock -don't miss it! Would definitely recommend.

Highlands Wedding

  • 5 of 5

In town for SIL's wedding with two toddlers and a nanny. Very functional home with large social area and seperate bedrooms. In addition it actually is within walking distance to town and on a flat piece of land.

This is a long overdue review. Laird is such a pleasure to rent from, always going above and beyond. My now husband proposed to me in Highlands while we were staying at this perfect house. The next morning when we overslept from all the excitement of calling friends and family, Laird told us not to worry - to take our time (we were so tired the cleaning staff woke us up!). Exactly a year later we decided to stay here for the second leg of our honeymoon. It was the week of Christmas. We had been in Anitgua for a week, which while beautiful didn't have Christmas decorations hanging from the rafters, and I felt like with all the wedding craziness we had skipped Christmas all together. My husband asked if Laird could arrange for a tree to be in the house, and that precious woman made sure we had one to decorate together.

Besides the fact that these folks are wonderful, the house is great, has everything you need, and you can walk to downtown Highlands in minutes!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this thoughtful and very kind review! We are so delighted that you've stayed in our house twice and that it has been part of your engagement and honeymoon. Please know it will always be there for you at future stages in your relationship! :) Sincerely, Laird & Matt

Weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend! The house is perfect! Short walk to town, pass a lake and feed the ducks. It was also a short walk to a hiking trail. The front porch was great for morning coffee and happy hour. Loved the fireplace, loved everything!
