We wanted to do something extra special for our daughter’s sweet 16 (OK…. just to be honest, it was 1 week before she turned 17 – we were super late on celebrating 16, but we got it in before she was officially 17!) My daughter was very excited to take a birthday trip to Deep Creek with her friends, and I was excited to get to enjoy such a lovely, peaceful environment, which she hung out with her friends.
Laurie, the owner, was amazing, and talked me through everything before we went. I had an extremely helpful list of things we needed to bring, and ideas of things we could do. Prior to completing my booking she had called me to explain that the electric company had come out and run a new wire for the pool, and that the pool was perfectly safe to swim in. She even let me know that she had personally swam in the pool, since the wire was run. She was true to her word — the pool was absolutely great and while we were there, my daughter and her friends spent nearly all 3 days in it and in the hot tub. I got to spent a very small amount of time in the pool and hut tub myself, (when I was able to get the girls to give me a chance) and it was such a joy to use them both.
Besides the pool and hot tub, the house itself is beautiful. My daughter and her friends stayed in the bedrooms on the main floor, and they loved having their own rooms, TV’s and bathrooms. I stayed in one of the bedrooms on the 2nd floor, so I could give them the sense of privacy. My room was lovely — the bed was extremely comfortable, the room (all the rooms actually) were nicely appointed and comfortable, and the shower had plenty of hot water, despite sharing the house with 4 teenage girls! The kitchen was to due for. I have a very small kitchen at home, so I loved the spacious kitchen, which was fully outfitted with everything I needed, and the girls liked eating at the kitchen island, on the bar stools. I think we ate one meal at the dining room table, but the island was so much more cozy for our little group.
We did leave the house and neighborhood, but most of the time we were there was spent enjoying the house, pool, hot tub, and surrounding grounds. We honestly could have spent the entire trip hanging at the house, and been completely content.
It was quiet and so nice to take walks around the neighborhood, and check out all of the unique homes. However, I could not have been happier with Highland Manor, and will definitely be renting this home again!
