"My friends and I had an absolutely spectacular weekend at the Highlands Lodge. The cabin could not be more gorgeous and impressive. It's even better in person than in the photos (which already sold me on booking it). We had perfect weather and made memories that will certainly last forever. The owners were wonderful and responded quickly to any questions. The check-in and check-out process was also very easy. We had a great time skiing, snowboarding, and tubing at Seven Springs, which is less than 20 minutes away. We had a group of 13 people and everyone had their own space. It truly couldn't have been a more enjoyable weekend. If you're thinking about booking this cabin, I highly recommend it. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!"

"My siblings and I and all our spouses and kids try to take a vacation to the beach every other summer. Ever since we started this tradition 5 years ago, however, my parents have never been involved because they prefer not to travel too far from Ohio. This winter when we were thinking about where we wanted to go we decided we wanted to stay a little closer to home so that our parents could come along as well. This cabin ended up being the perfect spot for our trip (especially for my parents). For our trip we had a total of 17 people - 10 adults and 7 children (two 7-8 year olds, two 2 year olds, and three age 1 or younger). There was plenty of room inside for everyone and we very rarely felt cramped. The openness of the inside of the cabin gave us a great "togetherness" vibe because there was lots of space for us to all be together at once but at the same time there are plenty of spaces inside for you to go and do your own thing for awhile if you want to. Everything about the cabin, from the woodworking and variety/quantity of seating on the inside to the porch and shade on the outside, made for a very comfortable stay. Our parents (the children's grandparents) had an awesome time just hanging out with the kids. They spent some of their time having Full House watch parties in the master bedroom while other times they were out on the porch playing with kids or just relaxing with them on the swing. The porch and the house itself really were a focal point for everyone and I can't say enough about the perfect atmosphere it makes for a family wanting to "get away from it all" to just spend time together. Other Pros: Tons of shade around the house so you can stay pretty cool even on hot days. Kitchen/dining area well-stocked (only missing a 9 x 13 pan) with plenty of room for eating/playing games. Short drive to Living Treasures Wild Animal Park (perfect for young children) Cons: Not much clear or level ground around the house for running around/playing games. Downstairs gets very cold. Openness of the upper levels can get tricky for anyone trying to sleep in loft areas if people on the main level are awake and watching TV/playing games. Wifi is touchy in many spots on the upper level."

"This was the perfect place for a mini college reunion. 9 of us spent the weekend and loved it. Amazing house- a bit tricky to find at night but everyone we dealt with was so friendly and helpful. Plenty of plates/silverware/glasses- consider taking a few baking dishes/cookie sheets. We will definitely go back!"

"My group of 14 HS girlfriends stayed in this gorgeous mountain "cabin" for our annual weekend getaway and absolutely loved it! We had plenty of room for gathering, eating, and relaxing. Everything in the home was perfectly appointed, very clean and obviously of the greatest quality. The pictures truly do not do it justice, nor, do they truly show you the level of craftmanship that went into building such a spectacular home. While we woke up to snow one morning, the roaring fire inside kept us all delightfully warm. The ample supply of stacked firewood provided was a bonus. Working with Wes and Bill was a delight. They never tired of answering my questions prior to our arrival, and if they did, they didn't let it be known. Matt received us and was more than knowledgeable about the house and all it had to offer as he showed us around."
