We visit Highlands often, and have stayed in a few different homes. This home has been our favorite so far. The space is great for our family, allowing for the whole group to be together, or to get some space if needed. The home is beautifully decorated and well equipped. The location is very convenient to Highlands. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon!

The house was simply gorgeous - even better than the photos! No detail was lacking - we felt welcome and relaxed immediately. The location was super convenient, but still felt like we were in the middle of the mountains, easily able to disconnect and get away for a while. With great restaurants, hiking trails, shopping and spas nearby, it was the perfect retreat for our girls' weekend!

Very nicely decorated, clean and close to town. The only complaint is the toilet on the upper floor is quite awkward. Otherwise, we had a great stay.

Roostica is such a special place. The house is situated in the trees overlooking the lake. What a beautifully decorated oasis in the Highlands. We had a wonderful weekend celebrating a family birthday. The house fits 8 people comfortably and there is plenty of space for everyone to stretch out and relax. The linens, towels and beds are all high quality which is hard to find on airbnb sometimes. I would wholeheartedly recommend this house for anyone wanting to enjoy the Highlands!

Very nice house that can accommodate 6 comfortably and 8 with the use of couches. Less than 5 minute drive to downtown Highlands. Very nicely appointed. Wonderful screen porch with views of a lake. Highly recommended.

Perfect Mountain Home! The house was convenient to downtown and had a wonderful view of the lake and open areas for our 2 year old to play. Ruthann was very responsive when we had questions and can't say enough wonderful things about their home and our stay. We will def. be back!
