Just the relaxation we needed. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel like we were a part of the Fire Mountain Family. Each morning they gave us great suggestions that were worth following! The rooms were very nice and had an incredible view. Can't recommend this place enough - and we can't wait to come back!

My family and I spent weekend @ Fire Mountain and even though I've been there many times before, I again marveled at the beauty of the setting, the tastefully appointed rooms and cabins, the superb hospitality of Hiram and Mathew. Each visit brings it's own discoveries. We were there when the weather was cloudy, rainy, overcast. But seeing it all... More

This was our first visit, and even though we only stayed two nights, we immediately fell in love with the property and the accommodations. If you are looking for resort amenities, this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a relaxing environment, then Fire Mountain Inn is an excellent choice. Our cabin was spacious, very... More

This was our first visit to Fire Mountain, and it will definitely not be our last! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, and we're going to do it again next year. Hiram and Mathew are perfect hosts and go out of their way to ensure that your vacation exceeds your expectations. Hiram knows the area so well, and... More

I have stayed at Fire Mountain several times over the years and have never been disappointed in the experience. It is definetly my favorite place to relax and unwind. Everytime I go, I wonder why I don't go more often, as it is such an easy trip from the Atlanta area, where I live. The beauty of the surroundings, the... More

We could not have pick a better place to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary than Fire Mountain. Hiram and Matthew were such gracious Hosts and made us feel special from the moment we arrived. Upon reception each guest gets a full tour of the property and they both go the extra mile to ensure each guest knows the best places... More

We love staying at Fire Mountain, especially over Halloween! Beyond the beautiful fall colors in Scaly Mountain and nearby Highlands, NC, Fire Mountain always makes us smile with its jack o' lanterns, scarecrow and harvest decorations throughout the grounds. Whenever we can, we book Satohla, the one room in the inn with a fireplace and both sunrise and sunset views.... More

What a special find. We did not know what to expect and did not want to leave, Hiram and Matthew are so gracious and hospitable going out of their way to make sure everything is satisfactory for you. They truly feel like "stewards" of this special family owned spot and it shows. We stayed in stargazer and it was cheerful... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at Fire Mountain Inn. Accomodations were great except for lumpy mattress. Breakfast was superb and fresh and hot. Managers were super helpful with tips on where to go and what to do. We plan to come back next summer.

My husband and I just returned from our 5th visit to Fire Mountain and as always we were sad to leave behind the little slice of heaven on top of the mountain. We have always stayed in the cabins and enjoy the privacy and solitude that it provides. From the moment you check in Matthew and Hiram make you feel... More
