The living area has a flat screen Cable TV, DVD player, WiFi, wood burning fireplace AND a wood stove. The upper level has two bedrooms and one bath. the 2nd bedroom is called the ‘tree room’ because you feel like you are IN the trees. Full size (Dbl) bed One ‘wall’ of the tree room is a curtain that when opened, allows you to see into the living room below and to the view beyond. The 3rd BR has two beds, one is a 3/4 (bigger than a twin) and the other is a full size (Dbl).

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Hollingwood was perfect for a long weekend retreat! House has great views from back deck. However, a couple of smaller brush trees need to be removed to fully enjoy the view. Brenda with Chambers Realty was very nice and easy to work with. Highly recommend them. While the house provides lots of privacy but the upper level “tree house” room needs additional curtains or shades on north side windows to close at night as these windows directly face the neighbors back deck. Overall, thank you for a great stay!

Response from Highlands is Calling
Thank you for your stay and review! We are working on trimming/cutting the trees that have grown into the view. We look forward to your next stay!
Spectacular 180 degree view! We'll be back next year!
This was our second stay at Hollingswood. We love the view and the homey feel of the property. The house has character, charm and an at-home feel. We’ll be back next year!

We stayed here 3 years ago. I assumed there would have been some improvements made since then.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed here 3 years ago. I assumed there would have been some improvements made since then. The location is ideal and it could have some great views but the trees still need trimmed just as they did 3 years ago except now it is even worse. I was under the impression after speaking with a gentlemen at the agency that the view had been opened up. We had to vacuum the floor when we arrived. Otherwise it was fairly clean with the exception of needing a good dusting. It needs new living room furniture and a bigger t.v. Good kitchen and the bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. I put that I would not recommend to a friend because for the money I believe the improvements I mentioned need to be made.
