I stayed here while my house was being finished. This is what a hotel should be. d fashioned and laid back. Of course, that's how Highlands is anyway. Will stay there again if needed. Even though it was cold outside, It was warm in my room and with plenty of blankets it made it all the cozier. After staying here,...

My husband and I stayed here for a night a couple of weeks ago...it was a quick stop on Thanksgiving night and of course, it was incredibly busy at the Inn. The people that worked at the Inn all seemed very friendly so I can't say a negative thing about that. I thought the dining room was quite adorable with...

Great location near the main part of downtown. However, the motel backs up to what seems to be a back-road but is in fact a major truck street, so very noisy. People were very nice to us. No real complaints, but if we were to visit again we would stay elsewhere in town.

We visited on a Sunday during leaf peeping season in October and we very impressed with the live entertainment at brunch. The acoustic guitarist was as good as any well-known recording artist! I had one of the specials- a pork roast and my wife had lobster bisque in a bread bowl. The food was good but the service and atmosphere...

Thank you, Ashley, for doing everything you could to make our stay wonderful and thank you, housekeepers, for making our room look pretty. We arrived around 6:30pm on a Thursday in late September, looking forward to having dinner at the restaurant. Though the website indicated that it was open Thursday through the weekend, it was not open that night and...

We stayed 3 nights at this old historic Inn which is in the best possible location in downtown Highlands. We loved our comfy room with balcony - not big or fancy but certainly more than adequate. Not much offering for breakfast just small pastries but terrific lunch - we ate there everyday. Super nice and efficient wait staff. I'm sure...

A very relaxing experience. Our room was in the guest house and was very small but had privacy and comfort. No drawers for storing clothes - only a very small closet. The room was very clean and cozy. I would suggest coffee machines in the guest house rooms. Each morning I had to dress to walk to the main house...
