Have a Highlands Vaca Wish?


big mountain view

Enjoy this amazing view!


How about  a fall leaf get-a-way to Highlands. The air is crisp and cool up here in the mountains now—perfect for an escape from the city heat.

I found the most charming place for you to stay on while you are in the mountains. Nestled in the cool trees and surrounded by old stone walls, this cottage has it all. The location is ‘in’ town close to all the unique shops and restaurants—you could even walk!

Eat out or cook at home and enjoy the amazing views from every room in the house. Have a sneak peek on the blog today and then click on the Airbnb link or the owners link here to book your fall leaf get-a-way. Hurry—it won’t last long!

    Hi, your house is BEAUTIFUL. We are renovating an old ranch style and turning it into a craftsman. I LOVE your dark exterior paint color, would you mind sharing with me the name, brand and sheen. Thank you.

      Syndie, Thank you so very much. The paint is made my Cabot and the color is Burnt Hickory. We used the paint—not the stain. There is actually only one sheen.
