AirBnB Review

by Josh S.

This was our second Christmas at this home, and we feel like it’s part of our family traditions. Love the Christmas tree and all the extra Christmas touches that were added this year, but we really missed the two stuffed bears. This is a lovely place for any family to come and relax and enjoy quality family time together. We look forward to our next visit.

Lovely house that was well supplied with things we needed to stay comfortably. The porches are fantastic! Good beds and nice bathrooms. Hope to be back!Very good service. We had to cancel our original rental time due to a medical emergency. The team members approached the owners and allowed us to move our two week rental to this time.

This is a beautiful home with lots of outdoor space on their screened porches. Very clean and nicely decorated. Remote gas logs and an outdoor beverage refrigerator were a plus. Very nice home.We have rented through Highlands Vacation Rentals before. They are very efficient and helpful with emails and text messaging.

Our week was lovely. Topped off with snow. We so enjoyed our time in this home. It did not feel like a typical rental. We felt we were invited to stay at a friends home, one that is loved. And we loved it. Cant wait to come back.Excellent

Perfect location! Excellent layout and very comfortable for our family! The location was perfect being 10 minutes to both Highlands and Cashier's. Access was easy with no steep inclines. Covered parking was kept us from getting wet when it rained. Loved the covered porch areas for dining and relaxing outside. The office area was a great added touch. Would definitely stay again!
