The High Gate woods abound with many species of birds including grouse and wild turkey. If you are lucky late in the day you may catch a glimpse of a brace of falcons that nest in the protected forest land to the west of the deck. On a recent morning a flock of young wild turkeys (jakes) led by a hen were on Highgate Road.

This is a special home with the interior furnished in a clean modern style that complements the mountain architecture. The ambiance is enhanced by the presence of part of the owner's art collection. In sum it is a destination for those who want to escape the noise of everyday life and renew your senses.

Beautiful, Art-Filled Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at Falcon Ridge at Highgate. Everything was perfect, from the superb views, to the beautifully appointed yet cozy great room. We particularly loved the artwork filling the home and giving it such character. We spent lazy nights after big hiking days, drinking wine and playing cards by the massive stone fireplace with the whole family. The beds were wonderful - everyone in our crew commented on the pillows and excellent linens. We brought up our telescope and really enjoyed the crisp clear night skies from the deck, warmed up by the outdoor fireplace. I especially appreciated the very well-stocked kitchen and charcoal (there is no substitute!) grill for our big dinner-in night. Walks around the neighborhood were daily treats and provided ever-changing views and a bit of exercise for us "flatlanders". The owner was super responsive and even made sure we had plenty of firewood upon arrival. Excellent, invigorating vacation - cannot wait to return to this slice of heaven.

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was well stocked and very comfortable. The beds and linens were luxurious and we all slept great. We loved having a perfect kid room with twin beds. We enjoyed the location- very close to Highlands Main Street. All in all, an excellent experience!

Lovely home with some issues

  • 1 of 5

We have rented many homes on VRBO and homeaway over the last 10 to 15 years and never had a bad experience. This home was one of the most expensive that we had ever rented. It is a lovely home in a great location and neighborhood. We had some issues - some that were dealt with by the owner some were not. The home was not clean when we arrived (example: dirty floors and very dirty bathroom with hair in the shower). The owner did refund one half of the cleaning fee and offered to send a cleaning person, which to me is too disruptive since we are paying a lot for our time at the home to relax. There were animal/rodents in the walls near the master bedroom that were loud enough during the night to wake you up. The owner also submitted an insurance claim that we had damaged a piece of furniture. We did not and stated that to the insurance people. The home is lovely but I would not choose to deal with the owner again.

Owner's Response: This negative review is about damage the renter did to my home and vengeful reaction as I confronted her with it. It's the only negative review ever. I bent over backwards to satisfy them to no avail. The criticisms are inaccurate and unfounded. The damage deposit was returned as well. They are undesirable to do business with. Read the other posted reviews from happy visitors. You can't please everyone.

Close to Highlands but Captivating Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for a peaceful and tranquil spot to vacation this is it! It is a small piece of heaven here on earth.

1541 Highgate Road is a located in an exceptional neighborhood for walking and enjoying the fall foliage.

The porch/ deck was perfect for star gazing.We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the week!

You will find all the comforts of home and more in this charming, welcoming, mountain house.

And if you require help or have any questions , the home owner is the best about looking out for you.

We will definitely be back!
