My extended family of 12 people stayed here for three nights in June and had a great time! It is a windy 20-25 min. drive from Highlands with a couple of stretches of gravel road to navigate. This is a very secluded home- only one neighbor across the street and some others down t…

This place was perfect for our big family trip. Not a single complaint. The house is huge, the amenities are perfect, the house is extremely well insulated. I cannot have enough words to describe how cool was this trip for us.

Thank you for your comments Sea. We strive for the perfect experience. When we're not renting Melbymonte, we're using it for our won family reunions, so it's much more than just-a-business to us! Thanks again and we'd love to have you back.

Thanks, it was a pleasure to have you! 99% of my reviews are great, once in awhile I get something negative - I wish they would call me when it happens so I can take care of it! (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) I use the place myself all the time and my family loves it!

My name is Tara and recently took over managing the Lodge from my dad, Craig. (You will notice his name in the reviews). Our dad built this lodge as a second home for our own use and family reunions, and we still spend time there. It is very energy efficient and well insulated…
