The High Gate woods abound with many species of birds including grouse and wild turkey.

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.

Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of places in Highlands and when it comes to location, this home was the best. Quiet, peaceful, no traffic, very secluded. It was exactly what we look for when we travel to Highlands. Mr. Montford was a joy to deal with -- a wonderful man.

Perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our vacation to Highlands for my sister's wedding. The house was absolutely beautiful, well stocked and much larger than the pictures show. It is also very conveniently located. Everything is a 5-10 min drive, and that's only because of the up and down mountains. 1-2 miles from everything. The open concept kitchen and living area was a great place for our family to gather and spend time together, as well as the back deck. There are beautiful mountain views from the back deck. The owner was extremely kind and helpful, and we'd book this house repeatedly if avaialable.

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!
