My husband and I spent 2 nights at Fire Mountain. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and found both Hirum and Matthew to be very accommodating hosts. The breakfasts were outstanding both days! We plan to return to Fire Mountain.

I have traveled A LOT for the past several months. I have stayed in Many places, most very nice. After this, my second visit to Fire Mountain in less than a month, I have found my paradise!

We stayed in the Star Maiden (room) in the Inn. It was nice to escape TV, clock/radio, or other annoying devices. Enjoyed sitting on our deck watching the stars come out. The breakfasts were worth the trip alone! The views from the breakfast area were breathtaking. The grounds were beautiful. We enjoyed meeting other guests at the bonfire. Hiram and... More

And Fire Mountain Inn is definitely one of them! My daughter and I spent a weekend at Hiram and Matthew's incredibly beautiful place and fell in love with everything about it! The setting is gorgeous with mountain views in every direction as far as the eye can see. We stayed in the Star Maiden, which is simply and yet elegantly... More

My husband and I were blown away with how much we enjoyed this mountain getaway. Matthew and Hiram were welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable of the area from hiking, dining, directions and to tailoring their information to what we wanted to do. The sunsets were incredible , the property beautiful - the breakfast were different every morning and delicious. Matthew was... More

"It's all about the Journey not the destination." This is true in that our original destination was to visit the Highlands and just decided to stay at Fire Mountain to base our day trips from. This quickly changed and Fire Mountain became the destination. We decided to remain at the Fire Mountain cabin and enjoy the peacefulness of the area... More

The Inn's website does an excellent job of explaining what guests can expect, and it was just what we were looking for. Matthew and Hiram have created a place that is relaxing and immerses guests in a magnificent environment. The personal touch began on arrival, when Matthew asked about our interests. His recommendations as to hikes, local activities and restaurants... More

This gem is located close enough for a wonderful getaway. The setting is lovely, you can walk to a sweet waterfall near the property. The breakfast is amazing and changes every day. And the welcome from the owners is refreshing. We are going back! Cant wait to try the new restaurant they are building.

My husband and I totally unplugged for three days at Fire Mountain, relaxing in the ambiance of the inn, the warm hospitality of Hiram and Matthew, the sunsets, the fields of wild flowers, the nuzzles of horses, and the silence. It is an experience that we intend to recreate in the near future. Thank you again, Hiram and Matthew, and... More
