Beautiful mountain views. My top priority in a home when visiting highlands is that the home has a Mountain View and this one has a spectacular one. We very much enjoyed our stay here, great open kitchen, incredible views. The stairs to the bottom level where the twin bunk beds are were a little steep for small kids, but we didnt even end up needing the downstairs space because the main floor had all we needed!

The team was very friendly and professional.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mountain House. The views were absolutely STUNNING! The home was clean and well equipped. The kitchen had everything you would need to make and serve a meal along with a Kureig coffee maker and drip coffee maker. We used the fire pit nightly for smores. The beds were comfortable and did I mention the views! You can take in the morning sunrise from your bedroom or from any room in the house for that matter..The back porch with rocking chairs was my favorite spot to take in the mountain scape every morning & evening. The only words of wisdom I would pass along is to definitely make sure you have a vehicle that is equipped for mountain driving along un-paved roads. We had a large SUV equipped with 4WD & had no issues getting up & down the mountain but I could see it being a little bit of an issue in an non equipped vehicle. Roads are narrow and mostly gravel as you drive up to the home. Definitely, not a draw back because the views are breathtaking! The home was gorgeous and we highly recommend a stay. There is so much to do, Hiking trails galore, snow tubing, zip lining etc. We were able to choose a new restaurant to enjoy every evening on Main Street. Its such a gorgeous little town. I highly recommend that you make all of your dinner reservations in advance because the restaurants all have odd hours, like closed mid week odd. So, definitely pre book dinner reservations. They also fill up very fast. We highly recommend Blue Bike Cafe, The Bridge at Mill Creek, Four 65, Madisons, Wolfgangs & Russer House.

The staff was very easy to contact via email, and responses were prompt.
The house has an unbeatable view from the deck. Though it has a remote feel to it, it is a quick drive away from Highlands for shopping, dining, and any necessities. We had a pleasant experience in this house and an outstanding overall experience in Highlands.

"Lovely mountain getaway! We really enjoyed our stay here. The views are absolutely breathtaking. The beds were so comfortable and the living areas had plenty of seating. The kitchen had everything we needed and the view from the window over the sink made doing dishes an enjoyable experience. We really enjoyed building a fire each day in the living room fireplace. It was too windy outside for us to enjoy the fire pit. The house sits on a large lot and our kids enjoyed exploring outside. The location is super convenient to Highlands and other activities. During our stay we enjoyed hiking, exploring waterfalls, snow tubing, shopping and dining out. We had two families with 4 kids ages 10, 9, 4, and 3. My only complaint was the master bed creaked and made noise even with the smallest movements. Also the WiFi was spotty. Overall it was a great getaway and we would definitely stay here again!"
