Take a walk on the quiet side



Welcome to Whittle Pines, a registered historical home that’s been in the same family since 1926. The home, updated and maintained over the years, still preserves the history and character of a different era in Highlands.

The main level has a large living area with cable TV and lots of room for gathering. There’s a separate dining room (seats 6-8) next to the well-equipped kitchen. The main level bedroom is handicap accessible and offers a King bed, room A/C unit, TV and full bath with walk in shower. There’s a nice sized back door entry/sun room accessed by ramp that has a half bath and laundry. Covered front porch with rockers overlooks expansive lawn.

Upper level has a hallway bath with an antique tub (no shower there), bedroom (#2) with Queen bed, another bedroom (#3) with two twins, and the #4 bedroom, considered to be the second Mst. BR has a Queen bed with TV, and full bath (walk in shower- no tub)

The property is protected by lush rhododendrons, trees and bushes which form a natural boundary for privacy. The large lawn is perfect for a picnic on the grounds, exploring, sitting around the fire pit telling stories, or a game of badminton.



Whittle Pines is a short,leisurely walk to Main Street, restaurants, live theater, library, churches and lots of unique shopping experiences.

Pets may be considered with a non-refundable pet fee and pet policy attached to your signed lease.

*The ONLY A/C in this home is in the Mst. BR on the main level. All other rooms have ceiling fans and windows with screens to allow the fresh mountain air inside.

Perfect Stay

by Emily R.

We couldn’t have enjoyed our stay more at the farm. Perfect location and I loved the fact that there was no smart tv to distract the children. We enjoyed the grounds and how well the family has preserved their historic home.

Great location with serene surroundings

by K.F.

This is our second stay at this location and it has served as a great “home base”, once again. The house is older and a bit dated but clean in general. The grounds are really great with plenty of green space and well cared for. The location is about three or four blocks from Main St. so it is a short and scenic walk to the center of town. We’d definitely stay again.

Thank you for your return visits- we appreciate your business. Let us know when you want to return.

Fantastic Thanksgiving with our family!!

by Edward L. H.
This was the perfect place for our family to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving! The home fit our family perfectly and the grounds were ideal, allowing for a gentle stroll about, as well as plenty of space for throwing the ball for our dog. We’ll be back!!

Great historic getaway

by Jeff M.
House is a historic gem, in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to downtown. With all the appointments of a legacy home, I highly recommend this property. Property is large and well separated from neighbors. Kitchen is very well appointed, though dish washer was broke on our visit but didn't hinder our stay at all. Our visit was during October and the cool weather didn't require us to use the a/c, so we can't comment on that though the heaters worked great in the evening.

Location, location, location!

by Kelly T.
We had a wonderful 4th of July week and could not have asked for a better location in town! We watched the fireworks from the back porch. The house was very clean and well equipped.
We will definitely rent this house again!

Home at 760 5th Street

by James A.
We loved the big yard. My grandchildren ran all around the property. Home is a
Beautiful old home located very close to city. We enjoyed walking to the downtown Main Street area. The negative about the house was the gas/kerosene system. It got down to 28 degrees on Sunday nite but we were afraid to run the old heater system after we went to bed so we nearly froze. Need to get a central electric heat system and move into the 1970’s ( which is the time when most most home had central heat installed). Also the family photos displayed in the upstairs bedroom should come down if a vacation rental. Don’t want to see somebody’s photos from 40 years ago.
