My new husband and I chose Fire Mountain Inn as our honeymoon destination. From start to finish it was a wonderful stay. The staff was welcoming and exceptionally helpful. The breakfast was delicious and served in such a way that we felt as if we were the only guests. The views were as beautiful as advertised. Our cabin had everything... More

Fire Mountain is a mountaintop hideaway just outside of Highlands. We went based on the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed. Highlands is a bustling little town, and as delightful as it is, we were grateful for our mountain escape. We were away from traffic noise and crowded streets. At Fire Mountain you truly feel away from the... More

Fire Mountain was the perfect get away! A place to unplug and unwind, the property has all the comforts of home without the everyday hustle and bustle. Our room was serene with a superb mountain view. We enjoyed coffee and the cool morning air on our private deck, followed by a delicious gourmet breakfast in the inn's quaint dining area.... More

Fire Mountain is an awesome property located outside of HIghlands in the NC mountains. Close enough to the surrounding tourist communities, but it feels like a million miles away. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed, and will definitely be back!

The owners are incredibly helpful and are willing... More

My new bride & I just completed a lovely stay with Mathew and Hiram at Fire Mountain. We were in one of the cabins, and the quiet, privacy and beauty of the surroundings was exactly as we had hoped. We especially enjoyed the hot, freshly prepared breakfast delivered to our cabin each morning ... Absolutely delicious and a wonderful way... More

Fire Mountain is a MUST for anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing get away. The view is unbeatable! There are many options for you to choose from as far as rooms or cabins. The breakfast is all fresh made from their garden and is different daily- five stars! Hiram and Matthew go over and above to make sure all their guests... More
