Laughing Bear lodge was wonderful, we greatly enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub for chilly nights and took advantage of the large kitchen and proximity to some great hikes including several waterfalls. Its very close to town and had decent wifi which was important to my husband and I who were both working remotely during our stay.The team was great, we corresponded mostly over text which was convenient and quick.

Highlands Get-A-Way! Great house in a wonderful community!The porches and hot tub were the best, close second was location of house to so many to-dos!!!Staff was courteous, responsive, efficient and kind.

All is as described with outdoor space being wonderful - hot tub and porch with fireplace AND a napping porch beside a babbling brook!!! Interior was spacious and comfortable with a well-appointed kitchen. Make sure to look at the "things to do" from the rental company's website - great waterfalls and hikes for all abilities - very close by!

Family Weekend in the Mountains We had a wonderful time at Laughing Bear mountain home. The outdoor fireplace was the highlight of the trip as well as sitting outside enjoying the beautiful yard and gardens. The home was very spacious and uniquely decorated. Lots to see in the home including the beautiful paintings.

terrific house - just what we were looking for! The house was great and was a perfect fit for our family. Well equipped and beautiful setting. Lush garden with flowers and blueberry bushes, the sound of water from large open porch. It was super!

Outside living! We spent the majority of our time outside on the covered porch. Even built fires each night (July). Enjoyed the hot tub after our day hikes. The Kitchen was so easy to cook in. Can't wait to go back!

Nice Mountain House. We enjoyed our stay in this house. It was clean inside and well-equipped, with a lot of attention to detail. The interior actually appeared better in person than in the pictures and the hot tub and outdoor fireplace were a plus. We also enjoyed its location on a stream.
