My husband and I had a 3 night getaway to the Highlands area of NC a few weeks ago. My husband booked our stay at the Colonial Pines Inn. We stayed the first night in the Bargain Basement as that was all that was available at that time. It's a lovely single room with comfy king bed and adjoining bath... More

The Inn has a wonderful casual mountain-elegance and is beautifully maintained. The attention to detail is evident everywhere. The breakfasts are of gourmet quality and presentation. The inn keepers provide a warm and friendly atmosphere. It's within walking distance of the wonderful in-town shopping.

We selected the Colonial Pines Inn for our first trip to Highlands and were very pleased with our experience. We stayed in the immaculate and inviting guest house apartment, and enjoyed Donna's daily special treats (thanks for the delicious gluten free muffins!). When we needed a break from hiking and the hustle and bustle of shopping it was nice coming... More

We visited this charming inn earlier this week for two evenings. Although the weather was rainy and dreary, the inn was a perfect place to relax and recharge. The rooms are immaculate and homey. The owners were anxious to help us navigate the area, even though we were quite familiar with the town and environs. Guest satisfaction is their primary... More

Expectations were exceeded. What a great experience! Very clean and felt like home. Of course the breakfast was to die for! The owners really try hard to make you feel welcome. I will keep coming back.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Colonial Pines Inn. The owners are friendly and helpful with things to do while in Highlands. The room was comfortable and clean. Sitting on the porch was so relaxing. They serve an amazing breakfast.

My wife and I have been traveling to Highlands and staying at the Colonial Pines Inn on and off for the past 15 years. In our opinion, there's just no better place to stay. Chris and Donna Alley have been running this place for 32 years, and they know how to make you feel at home. They are also very... More
