Mitchell's lodge & cottages is in a great location just 2 blocks from town and very close to all the waterfalls, the staff were very nice, our room was beautiful the only con was the mattress in the room was old and not very comfortable, but we did ok, overall it was a great place to stay.

We just got back from a beautiful stay at Mitchell's Lodge. The property is gorgeous and the staff are the most accommodating and helpful I have seen in a long time. They are very knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area and gave us wonderful tips about places to eat...I highly recommend the Market Fresh!

This property is very close to the town center so there is a lot more car traffic than other, more remote areas to stay in the Highland's area. We rented cabin 4 and although it was near a stream that you could hear, it was also in front of the main road into town. The cabin itself was extremely nice,...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages. Some units on our property are closer to the road than others. Even though the road is somewhat nearby, we do have many trees and the stream running through our property, which our balconies sit over. We are one of few lodging that is not located directly on...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the Chestnut Cottage in the lovely time of month of April 2nd for three days. Robyn was so helpful and went out of her way to assist us with anything we needed. Roby even notified us of a Bear wandering around in the parking lot since we love wildlife sightings. The bed...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages. Usually when meeting the front desk staff at an average hotel or lodge, conversation is normally minimal and only to check guests in and send them to their room. Here at Mitchell's, are front desk goes above and beyond for our guests. We make sure they are familiar...

We loved staying at the Lodge, we arrived late and they left a little note with our name at the door, I thought that was cute, the Lodge staff as well as the people town are very nice. I loved our room choice, the furniture goes great with the area, and the view of the little creek from the balcony...

Booked Mitchell's from ratings on Trip Advisor. We stayed in the Chestnut Cottage. It was nice. A sitting room with fireplace and TV, a fully equipped kitchen and a bedroom with king bed and TV. Continental breakfast is not with going to. Other than that, very good place to stay. Would definitely return.

Thank you for your review on Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us while lodging in the Highlands. During the winter months, we do not provide as much breakfast items as we would in the "seasonal" months. For a continental breakfast, we try to keep a good variety of different foods. We are also...

Mitchell's is a perfect choice for the small family looking to relax without breaking the budget. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. This is not a boutique hotel with fancy soaps and concierge service, but when you stay here you feel like you are home. The double queen suite with fireplace, jacuzzi tub and kitchenette was large enough that...

Great price, nice staff, very clean. Bed was a little on the soft side, but I can live with that. Convenient to town. I am in the area for business and will stay here again. Make a winter trip to the area, the prices are right.

The staff members were extremely friendly (and knowledgeable; a little more on this in the next paragraph). The rooms and bathroom were clean and well maintained. The cottage that we stayed in had a rustic, warm feel to it with the knotty pine sidings and a gas fireplace. There was a TV in the sitting area and a TV in...
