My spouse and I recently stayed at the Inn, and our experience was extraordinary in every aspect. The secluded mountaintop setting provided a relaxing and beautiful backdrop. Our accommodations were very nice, the breakfasts were outstanding, and the service was top notch. Owners Hiram & Mathew could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Their attention to detail is evident... More

My husband and I took a quick weekend honeymoon to Fire Mountain. Even though the tree house experience wasn't what we expected, our stay was awesome! The owners and staff were very accommodating! Because my husband gets overly hot, especially at night when he sleeps, they moved us to well ventilated cabin and provided us with extra fans to circulate... More

My wife and I came for a four night stay (8/17-8/21). It was such a beautiful retreat for us. The weather was amazing (a good 15-20 degrees cooler than Raleigh/Durham area). We were able to keep our windows open the whole time. The long-range mountain views are tremendous from the Fire Mountain Inn. We stayed in the Cloud Climber room... More

This property is just as wonderful as all prior reviews indicate. The owners of the property take loving care of this inn, and extend themselves to ensure your stay is perfect. We stayed in Red Thunder room in Inn, and the view was amazing. Breakfasts are freshly prepared, and superb. The Inn is around 15-20 minutes outside of Highlands, so... More

My husband and I enjoy nature and this area was one that we had not explored. The Inn turned out to be the perfect place. The staff are welcoming and professional and provided us with information and recommendations of places to visit and restaurants. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the environment very relaxing. We had the Star Maiden room which... More

My husband and I recently visited the Inn for an anniversary getaway. The room was immaculate and recently renovated. The staff was amazing and very attentive. We were given lots of information about the area along with great ideas about where to go and what to see. All in all it was an amazing experience. But, I think the best... More

After coming to this area for 30 years, how have we missed this perfect spot? Just minutes from the dining and shopping in Highlands, you feel like you're in the tranquility and beauty of your own private mountain... because you are! We stayed in the inn (Cloud Climber room) and could not have had a better view of the sun... More

My new husband and I chose Fire Mountain Inn as our honeymoon destination. From start to finish it was a wonderful stay. The staff was welcoming and exceptionally helpful. The breakfast was delicious and served in such a way that we felt as if we were the only guests. The views were as beautiful as advertised. Our cabin had everything... More

Fire Mountain is a mountaintop hideaway just outside of Highlands. We went based on the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed. Highlands is a bustling little town, and as delightful as it is, we were grateful for our mountain escape. We were away from traffic noise and crowded streets. At Fire Mountain you truly feel away from the... More

Fire Mountain was the perfect get away! A place to unplug and unwind, the property has all the comforts of home without the everyday hustle and bustle. Our room was serene with a superb mountain view. We enjoyed coffee and the cool morning air on our private deck, followed by a delicious gourmet breakfast in the inn's quaint dining area.... More
