We stayed 2 nights in the Satohla room. Large room, awesome fireplace, large views, and very comfy bed. Best part of the trip was a grocery store dinner with sunset view and quiet surroundings. Impeccably clean. Wish shower stall was a smidgen bigger. Host Hiram & Mathew are both excellent and gave great advice for the surrounding areas. Breakfast is... More

We recently stayed in the cozy Cullasaja Cabin for the second time. It is a one room cabin set up perfectly for a couple's retreat: the stone faced masonry fireplace with the first fire already laid & plenty of seasoned wood on the porch are a nice touch, as is the jacuzzi tub. Every necessary detail is well thought out,... More

Fire Mountain was the perfect post-valentine's get away. Hiram and Mathew were both exceedingly accommodating. We couldn't ask for more. They familiarized us to the Highlands/Scaly Mountain area and gave us multiple suggestions on what to do and when to do it. And, of course, we had a ton of fun doing it. The restaurants in the Highlands spoil you... More

We were looking for a quiet, weekend get-a-away in the mountains and found Fire Mountain Inn. The weather was cold with some light snow...and that is just what we were looking for. The whole weekend was extremely peaceful and relaxing. The service provided by Matthew and Hiram was exceptional from the time we booked the appointment until departure. Hiram even... More

Once again we were so pleased with our stay at Fire Mountain. My husband and I went about 10 years ago and we loved it then now going back was even better. Hiram and Matthew take care of you from the time you get there. We are going to make sure to come back every year instead of waiting another... More

With the year coming to a close, we decided to escape the familiar and explore the Smokey Mountains and surrounding areas for our Christmas holiday. As we researched a place to stay, Fire Mountain resort leaped off our computer screen. After a call to Hiram we knew we had found the place to call home away from home - even... More

I am so glad we stayed at this mountaintop getaway versus staying in Downtown Highlands. I'm not going to get into details, because you need to have your own experience. But, the property is located on a mountaintop a few miles west of Highlands, which is easily accessible. The morning and evening views were spectacular and the staff gave us... More

You want to relax in middle of the nature? Then Fire Mountain is THE place to be. This fantastic ressort is just perfect to pull of the stress of the city. In October we've stayed in a luxery cabin with fire place and jacuzzi. From our bedroom we could see deep into the woods and after sundown the only sound... More

We have visited Fire Mountain every year since it has been open. The staff amazingly always seemed to have enhanced the service and surroundings each year.We have seen many wonderful changes to the inn and cabins. The friendliness and attention of the staff has always been excellent. We have toured the area and eaten at most on the surrounding restaurants.... More

By sheer luck my boyfriend and I booked a weekend at this quaint mountain top inn. The views from the property (particularly sunrise and sunset) are breathtaking. Moreover, unlike many other mountain inns, the rooms were not cluttered with tacky cabin decor but were pristine with a modern minimal look. The breakfast was delicious, substantial, and made fresh every morning... More
