A quiet, romantic get away with beautiful views of surrounding mountains. Offers a variety of very comfortable accomodations from cabins with hot tubs to private inn rooms. A wonderful homemade breakfast offered each morning that is worth planning your day around. The hosts are gracious and very knowledgable offering everything from hiking recommendations and maps to dinner reservations.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Fire Mountain Inn for our 29th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. To say the views were breathtaking is an understatement. We stayed in the Inn on the property and had a view of the sunset each evening. The hosts encourage guests to explore the grounds which we did.... More

My wife and I sought a romantic retreat for our 39th Anniversary. We found it and more at Fire Mountain; and we will be returning there often. We stayed in Satohla in the Inn--a wonderful accommodation with both a sunrise and sunset view; fireplace, art, and wonderful appointments and furniture. We began the weekend with a romantic mountain wildflower bouquet... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Cullasaja Cabin. It is definitely the place to go for some much needed down time. The entire property is very well maintained and our cabin was very clean and comfortable. The hosts were very accomodating and made us feel at home. Loved the adirondack chairs for sitting out enjoying the view and... More

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at Fire Mountain Inn. We stayed in laurel treehouse. Our experience was amazing from the service, breakfast, accommodations, etc.... Couldnt have asked for a better getaway. We look forward to returning.

My wife and I recently returned to Fire Mountain for another awesome experience. Quiet and peaceful, with great mountain views, cool breezes, comfortable accommodations, wonderful breakfasts and a friendly staff made for a great Labor Day weekend. The only problem was we wanted to stay longer!

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
