"Such an amazing space for a much needed getaway! Close to the downtown area, well stocked, and property management was super responsive! The question about “ Accuracy of online listing?”… much more than I expected!!! The pictures do not do this house justice! So comfortable and beautiful"

This was a beautiful house which offered everything we needed. Great open layout and very well equipped kitchen. The house seemed fairly new. The location in Highlands was perfect.  We love this area because of the great motorcycle riding experience for western NC and northwest Georgia. We had some amazing barbecue at Highlands Smokehouse! We shopped at Brysons grocery and also at the Ingles up in Cashiers. I would recommend this property for a small group.

VRBO Review "Spring Break at the Height of Happiness"

by Jeff D

The Listening Post was absolutely perfect for our family's needs, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. We will most certainly return in the future!

Review from Lanita

by Lanita

The house is beautifully decorated, spacious, and very clean. It has everything needed to make the stay comfortable - from pots and pans to a kayak and life jackets! Five family members, including one child, enjoyed this property for the second year in a row. In addition to the comments made above, we like the convenient location, privacy, and lake access. The lower level family room makes a great rainy day playroom.Friendly, responsive, and professional!

Review from Lanita

by Lanita
We had a great family week there with three generations to keep happy, and there were no complaints about the house all week. The house is beautiful and very clean! Everything you need and many things you didnt know youd need are there. The power went out for several hours one evening, and no problem because the house has a whole house generator, which instantly sprang to life. The beds are comfortable, and there are two decks and a screened porch too. The kitchen is very well-equipped. The dock has a Kayak, and life jackets and paddles are provided in the upstairs hallway. The downstairs family room is a great place for watching movies or space for children to play on a rainy day. Close to town but not close enough to hear any traffic noise. Love it!Professional and personable service all around! They treated us like family!

This property is very well appointed and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. The home is beautiful and has many excellent features.The communications with everyone was great and anytime we had questions the team was very responsive. We had a problem with the air conditioning and i sent a text and David responded immediately. He checked everything and had the repair team there pronto. We were back up in no time.

Loved this cabin. Its perfect! Brand new. So incredibly close to downtown Highlands. Perfect size cabin. Furniture is very comfortable. Great furnishings. Heated floors in bathrooms were a very nice touch for our winter visit. Loved the fireplaces, and the sauna was very relaxing. Cant wait to come back and stay again. Will for sure be our new go to cabin in Highlands from now on!Very pleasant. Highlands Mountain Rentals were so responsive. They text you upon arrival and you can text that number your entire trip if you need anything. Someone responds instantly. Best rental company I have used, not only in Highlands, but probably everywhere weve been.
