We stayed at this home in late July and early August, 2015 and found the accommodations to be at least as good or better than described on the internet. The house was tastefully decorated in a style that was warm and made you feel at home. We particularly enjoyed having a king sized bed and walk-in shower. The kitchen, living area was spacious and user friendly and we enjoyed the sunroom area for reading. There were only two of us, but with three bedrooms and a loft, the house could certainly accommodate more people. We rented in this area to escape the Florida heat for awhile and it was a welcome relief. The outside deck was nice for relaxing and reading.
Downtown Highlands is a short walk and I did it several times. A mild warning, if you walk, getting back requires going up a slight hill and a very steep driveway. We drove to the bottom of the hill several times and walked from there because it is much flatter. Once in town there are a number of restaurants. We tried many of them and found each to be very good. There are also a number of specialty shops with a variety of places to shop. We focused on the two Christmas shops, but there are many other choices.

Our family enjoyed eating a leisurely breakfast around the spacious dining table, playing games, and dancing/shagging in the family room. Even though the internet was temporarily unavailable (no fault of the owners), we had fun WITHOUT the electronic gizmos and gadgets.
This is a wonderful place to stay!
Lisa is the best to deal with. The house was more than expected. Very clean, very roomy, very beautiful place. As the title says..."Walk to town!!" We will definitely return for more visits!!
The whole vacation was A plus! Lisa was so nice and helpful. Booking the reservation was effortless. It was a perfect distance from town. Close enough to walk to town and yet far enough to feel lile you are in the woods. We loved everything.
This was our fourth stay, and it won't be our last. Unlike prior stays where we had a couple adults and one young teen at most, this time we had an additional teen and a 12-year-old. They loved it as well. They nestled into the loft and enjoyed that space immensely. Very comfortable home, LOVE being able to walk into town. Really nice owners (and their parents and extended relatives are nearby and so helpful). All the amenities. Just great.
