Great location. Easy walk to all the shops and restaurants in Downtown Highlands. The suite was very clean and true to the pictures and reviews and the outdoor space near the creek is a great addition. We really enjoyed our first trip to the Highlands and will definitely be back!

Team was attentive and easy to contact if any concerns arose. I called about not being able to work my fireplace and someone showed up within minutes to fix it!
Exceeded our expectations!! The location is perfect, within walking distance to everything. Multiple restaurants in the same building! The space was beautiful!! The decor was magazine worthy and the bed was so comfy! The outdoor area with lots of seating next to mill creek was a nice bonus. We will most definitely come back!!

The Highlands team was great. I had a chance to talk with them about property management since we do the same thing in Greenville, SC. It was great to hear their perspective and they are a very professional team.
The stay was wonderful and the unit was very clean. We really enjoyed lounging by the stream at night. The location was perfect for us to walk to everything in Highlands.

Appreciated the text messages and emails prior to arrival although we did receive some conflicting information e.g. arrival time availability...some said 4pm and another communication on the day we were traveling said 2pm. Would have planned to arrive earlier if we knew we could check-in before 4pm. Also, some info on website was not accurate in terms of the departure looked like there would be a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the suite which there was not. Suggest adding a few more pictures of the suite or a virtual tour video to get a better sense of the room...accentuate the decor and accommodations on your website for the user/prospective renter!
Excellent accommodations overall! Clean, quiet and conveniently located to downtown area. Serene creek and sitting area to relax after hiking adventures during the mornings and afternoons before walking to great restaurants for dinner.

Lori went above what was required or expected in order to accommodate our last-minute New Years Eve lodging needs. I was able to work with her via text while on a flight to secure a perfect location for our stay. She even got on the phone to make a dinner reservation for us, bc I was on a plane. This was the epitome of customer service!
This property was gorgeous; an unexpected gem in an ideal location just off the main strip in Highlands. We loved that we were able to walk to all of the local bars and restaurants. The back deck and creekside patio gave the property ++ appeal. We will DEFINITELY be back!
