We have been staying at Colonial Pines with Donna and Chris for 27 years and they just keep making our stays more pleasant. The inn is beautiful, walking distance to town, spotless, and they can answer every question you might have with great suggestions, You can do as much as you want or as little as you want. You can...

The innkeepers, Donna and Chris have perfected the fine art of accommodating their guests every need while never being intrusive. I just returned from a spectacular two night vacation and I sincerely mean vacation at this beautiful property. While the name of my suite was the Bargain Basement it was only a bargain price. All of the amenities of a... More

Recently spent 2 nights at the Colonial Pines inn,which turned out to be one of the most relaxing get a ways my husband and I have experienced. Breakfast was great, innkeepers met our every need. The rooms were comfortable even without a/c,fans provided needed cooling. We would definitely return for another visit.

Donna and Chris opened their home to us and made us feel like it was our home away from home. Walking distance to town. Sitting on large porch was very relaxing. This was our first stay here, but it will not be our last hopefully. Ted & Frances

What a delightful B & B. This one has been added to our favorites list. Donna and Chris are welcoming and warm hosts and Donna is a fantastic cook. Colonial Pines is a homey and comfortable B & B.

Charming B&B with the best breakfast we've found! Chris and Donna are delightful hosts and the breakfast is spectacular. In addition to the full spread of egg and cheese casseroles, freshly baked breads, ham or sausage and seasonal fruit, cereals and fruit are also available for those looking for a lighter breakfast. This is one of our favorite spots when... More

Once again we were back this year for our anniversary weekend. And once again we had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. We had a fire in the evening in the man house, a very comfortable king bed (bargain basement this year), and one of the best breakfasts ever. Chris and Dona are great hosts, so comfortable to be around and at... More

I have been enjoying the supreme hospitality of Colonial Pines B&B in Highlands, NC for about six years now and find it to be one of the best kept secrets in town! Nestled a few blocks off Main Street, within walking distance to town, the inn is cozy with pine paneled walls, four spacious bedrooms along with a wide veranda... More

Colonial Pines is a delightful, clean and comfortable B&B. The rooms are all different but each is charming. The innkeepers, Chris and Donna, have owned the property for thirty years and are wonderful to get to know. The breakfast is a delicious experience each morning. The inn sits on a hill just moments from downtown Highlands.

My husband and I stayed in the two bedroom guest house over the summer while we were visiting for a wedding. The guest house was more than we could have expected. It was very close to downtown, very clean, and very comfortable. The guest house would be good for a family of four or two couples. Donna and Chris were... More
