From here you can explore the Downtown on foot or catch another shuttle to your desired destination. When you’re ready to return to the Highbrook just go back to the Village Green and catch a ride on the #2 Eden Street Shuttle.

Our 26 unit property rests on a sloping 4-acre hillside. The Highbrook’s limited room inventory affords us the benefit of catering to a more select group of travelers. We generally do not accommodate group bookings, wedding parties, reunions or any group that we feel may adversely impact the quality of stay for any of our guests. All of our rooms have one king bed keeping all of the rooms limited to a maximum of two people. What this does is help to provide a quiet, relaxed atmosphere you won’t always find at larger properties.
