A beautiful place, professionally run and our cabin was clean and very nice. BUT there is construction taking place and noise from 8:30-5:00 so if you're looking for a quiet getaway forget it. I was very disappointed that they didn't share this as we made the reservations.

My husband and I spent our 30th anniversary here in June. The place is very peaceful and is definitely an escape from a busy life. There are no TVs,etc. In rooms but we were happy with that. The breakfast were delicious! Hiram and Matthew went out of their way to be helpful. We especially enjoyed sitting in the chairs on... More

Intimate,very personal attention, stunning location. Hosts were super! A little hard to find for us, but the seclusion was worth it. Owners wre very attentive to our needs but not smothering. We called our tree house accomodation "plush roughing it!"

Mathew and Hiram were great hosts. We were provided details of the area that helped us to personalize our trip. They provided maps and directions. The breakfasts were fabulous, as was the stargazing. The accommodations were lovely-no AC, no TV- and it was all good. Fire Mountain really is committed to you unplugging and that is a good thing. By... More

As newcomers to the Highlands NC area we appreciated the warm welcome and all of the information you provided; the fishing guide recommendation , the maps and directions to the trailheads, and the the tips on places to dine. Mathew's 5 star, freshly prepared breakfasts are delicious. The vista and the landscape spectacular. We look forward to returning.

I was anticipating a fantastic vacation after all the accolades from my boyfriend but I was still blown away by the beauty of Fire Mountain. Mathew and Hiram are gracious hosts and EVERYTHING is perfect in every way. The cabins are simply appointed with pine floors and walls, white duck couches and drapes and pine accents...beautiful original artwork adorn the... More

We returned to Fire Mountain for our 13th visit in 15 years. It is to us, heaven on earth because of the beauty and serenity that it offers all who stay there. The mountain breezes the clouds drifting by and the absolute quiet and peace that is offered there is unparalleled. The cabins are well appointed and having a wood... More
