Located just minutes (3 miles) from the many restaurants, shops, and galleries on Main Street, this Highlands Home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the mountain air.  Convenient to hiking trails and waterfalls, guests will enjoy the large private yard, complete with expansive decks, and outdoor fireplace and fire pit.

Idlewood cottage has four bedrooms and two and a half baths, and was lovingly renovated to provide modern and spacious living and sleeping areas.  The comfortable living room features a beautiful wood-burning fireplace, smart TV, and opens into the dining room.  Lots of natural light permeates all of the rooms.  The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking tools, service pieces, and everything you will need, including paper towels, trash bags, dish washing detergent, and coffee filters – just bring your groceries!
The master bedroom suite is located on the main floor and features a King-sized bed, smart TV and large bathroom with vintage claw-foot tub & a walk-in shower.  A second main floor bedroom also has a King bed, and is next to a full bath located in the hallway.  There is also a washer and dryer for guest use.
The second-floor features two bedrooms and a small half-bath.  Both bedrooms have twin bedding (four Twin beds in all).
Each floor has its own HVAC, so everyone can be comfortable.  We also have great internet!
The outdoor space is private and beautiful.  From the wonderful landscaping to the wall of rhododendron, guests will enjoy the peace and tranquility of the natural surroundings.  A deck offers shaded outdoor seating and a new gas grill.  The adjacent fire pit provides a place to roast marsh mellows or just to relax and enjoy your favorite beverage.  We even have 6 camp chairs for guests to use around the fire pit. A new large covered deck with fireplace was just added (Summer of 2022) to expand guests options for outdoor enjoyment!

Review from Derek

The house was just as advertised. It's a nice mountain house in a convenient location. The property is well maintained, and the management was very professional. We enjoyed the long weekend and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Review from Rachel

by Rachel
Our stay was amazing. Even with the weather not cooperating for a couple days, we saw dozens of amazing sights and really enjoyed the town of Highlands, and it was all super accessible from this very comfortable, very well-maintained property. We would definitely recommend Idlewood Cottage! I believe we were the first renters here, so booking it without seeing any reviews was a risk, but we are so glad we took it. The cottage is lovely. The owners have done a great job with including enough updates to make it feel modern and comfortable, while preserving the charm and uniqueness of the home. It was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay (kitchen utensils and cookware, soaps/detergents, towels, etc.). It was extremely clean and well cared for. Even the landscaping highlighted the fact that this home is extremely well maintained. You could tell the owners went above and beyond preparing to share this home with others - new camp chairs, new fire place accessories, new towels, local guide books, etc.) It even smelled like Fall inside! The location was fantastic - close to town and so many of the sights we wanted to see. The yard definitely felt private, and there was enough room for our boys to play catch and stretch their legs. We bought wood from a local nursery and used the fire pit and the wood burning fire place. We cooked several meals inside and used the grill and found we had everything we needed to do so without having to improvise. Our family of 4 was extremely comfortable here - we didn't even use the upstairs bedrooms but they looked clean and charming as well. We had no issues whatsoever! Thank you to the owners of this adorable cottage for sharing it with us. We loved the Highlands area and would definitely recommend it, and this rental property.Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The local knowledge was a big plus.
