Had a good time relaxing. Loved the inn, highlands very nice. Town is a bit to quiet for me. Everything seem to close very early. I was disappointed with a neighboring restaurant. The staff and the menu.

We are happy that you loved Old Edwards and enjoyed the town of Highlands. Many people enjoy the more peaceful times in winter, but it you visit in the summer season, you will find a more vibrant social scene and lots of activities throughout the season, including outdoor concerts, festivals and performing arts events. We hope to see you again...

This was our first visit, and we looked forward to an experience similar to our visit to The Lodge at Sea Island, GA. Although OEI was very nice, and the staff was gracious, the level of service was not quite the same level...
