Deluxe Kitchen King Suite Room 23 Very disappointed. Shower had a trickle of water when I tried to get it hot. I asked the front desk have someone look at it. But I guess they never did. So the next time I used it same problem. The bathroom sink drain was clogged. The bed box spring creaked like crazy. The ceiling fan had a weird noise The sofa is old and Dingy. Carpet had a burn on it from an iron. Place is a mess. Would I stay there again. Not worth the $239.00 a night.

I am so sorry that you were disappointed in your stay. We would have gladly moved you to another room to make your stay one you would have enjoyed. Thank you for alerting us to the water problem in 23 and it has been corrected. I am not sure how to address your other complaints other than we strive to treat our guest as family and would have gladly moved you to another room that might have made your stay more enjoyable. Covid has not allowed us to do various things that we would do each year such as carpet but I am sure you know that. Enjoy your holidays,stay safe and I apologize again that you were not happy with your stay.

First trip in late spring was great experience. Cute place with excellent staff, good location and reasonable price. That's why we decided to put it on our seasons changing 3-4 times a year list. But last night Jason was on check in duty. Arrived at 3:25 pm, apparently interrupted his game. He actually said for future visits check in is 4pm and I wouldn't need to be hurrying and caring about your needs if you remember that. My part of the conversation was my name and a couple minutes later request for restroom. Sad start! Customer service is my reason for dropping from a 4 to a 2 for Mitchell's Lodge in Highlands

I am so sorry that you were not happy with your check in experience. We try very hard to make our guests happy and feel like they are friends when they leave. We do not have a public restroom ,unfortunately because we are a small Lodge. It has been a stressful time for everyone trying to navigate Covid and keep everyone safe. Now, more then ever before it is so important that we deep clean every room when a guest checks out to make sure the rooms are safe for our incoming guests and that the incoming guests respect our 4 pm check in time to allow for this. Thank you for staying and sorry your were not happy with your check in experience and stay safe durin these unprecedented times.

Everything would have been lovely here. Clean, friendly staff, beautiful grounds. Unfortunately the noise level was not what I had anticipated for my four day mountain retreat. Stayed in #18. Morning traffic can be heard from busy road in back. Group of men staying next door. Laughing loudly, cursing and banging door. I will unfortunately not stay here again due to noise level. If you’re looking for a quiet serene place... this is not the one.

We apologize that you did not have a quiet getaway. Your room was located in the original building built in 1939 and unfortunately sound can be an issue at times. I wish that the other guests would have been more respectful of the people around them. We do offer the Cedar Lodge which was built in 2001 and has improved sound barriers and cabins that are secluded and offer the perfect place for a peaceful and quiet retreat. We hope that you give us another chance .

We stayed for two nights for a mini “babymoon”. We were actually supposed to come in February for Valentine’s Day weekend but had to cancel due to a death in the family. The management graciously allowed us to use our prepaid nights as credit, which was super appreciated. Mitchell’s is a great spot! It’s not fancy, and there are definitely some things that could be refreshed, but it’s absolutely perfect if you’re looking for a laid back mountain getaway weekend. I also understand from an earlier review they were planning some renovation projects this year before covid hit, so completely understandable that hindered them a bit. Main Street (the downtown Highlands area) is a super quick walk, 5-10 minutes. The room was very clean and we found the mattress to be comfortable. The continental breakfast was plentiful ... hard boiled eggs, bagels/pastries, yogurt, cereal, fruit cups, coffee and juice. We had a great weekend in Highlands and at Mitchell’s Lodge and would definitely stay here again on our next trip!

Thank you for staying with us for your mini" babymoon". We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay . We hope that you will come back with your new bundle of joy so we can meet him or her. We are ready for Covid to be over so we can begin to do projects that we were going to do in 2020 . We hope after your visit to our lovely downtown shops and restaurants that you enjoyed our pavilion and small pond. We hope you and yours stay safe and well and come to see us again.
