This is a wonderful house that feels like home when you are staying here. The homeowners have made this a comfortable retreat that has everything you need. The lake is outside your door and Highlands is minutes away. I have stayed in lots of nice vacation rentals but this one is a notch above. We hope to be back often.


Charming, quiet mountain retreat

This was our third trip to Highlands, NC and our first trip to Maison Rouge. We were thoroughly impressed by all on offer at this property. We were less than a mile from downtown, but on Mirror Lake on a quiet road, we felt so remote! Maison Rouge was a well-maintained property and had such generous space for families or groups of friends to stay. Myself and my cousin enjoyed taking the flat-bottom boat out on the lake for a leisure paddle. Felt it was a great value and would prioritize this property in planning a return trip.
Date of stay: July, 2018

If we could stay all summer, we would!

Absolutely LOVED our stay at Maison Rouge, and can’t wait to return. The setting on Mirror Lake is fabulous, the porches are so relaxing and we enjoyed the boat as well. The downstairs entertainment kitchen was perfect while grilling.
We loved the homey feel and the owner’s personal touches. Especially enjoyed the books on Highlands history.
If we could stay all summer, we would! Hopefully we can come back and stay a whole month. The king bed was very comfortable.
