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

Had our first visit to Fire Mountain this past weekend, and it was fantastic. From the customized welcome from Hiram to getting us properly parked and settled into our room by Matthew, we had an excellent weekend. Their recommendations for Highlands activities were right on! So pleased with the visit that we took time right after dinner on Saturday evening... More

Like being on another planet, Fire Mountain is the total opposite of urban Atlanta in late July. Expensive but worth the price. Absolutely the best when it comes to hospitality, Matthew and Hiram really know how to make you feel welcome! Best parts: the purity and coolness of the mountain air, the delicious well water, the nearly total silence, the... More

My wife and I visited for a weekend getaway. The property and views are absolutely beautiful. You can easily roam the property, plenty of roads and trails to walk. We enjoyed a fire in the fire pit with another couple while watching the sunset. The location is about 20 minutes from The Highlands. No restaurant on-site but there's a great... More

My wife and I stayed for three lovely nights last weekend while attending performances at the Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music Festival. Our room, the Inn itself and the overall experience were as delightful as we expected after having been given a glowing recommendation from friends. Hiram and Mathew were gracious and welcoming, and guided us :) with great information about the... More

What an amazing experience from beginning to end! My husband and I found Fire Mountain Inn online and made a last minute trip to the mountains in July. We were so glad we did - the weather at Fire Mountain Inn was twenty degrees cooler than Atlanta! Mathew and Hiram were amazing hosts and made sure we were familiar with... More

So, thankfully my mom took me with her to Fire Mountain Inn! I was allowed to stay in a cabin and upon arrival, found my own dog bowl with a bag of treats. I spent the evenings curled up by a nice, warm fire and the days hiking in the cool 73 degree temperatures. I even got to swim in... More

We stayed in one of the cabins which was a great choice! The owners of this property are the perfect hosts from arrival to departure. They provided great information, recommendations, and maps for anything and everything we wanted to do. They were even able to arrange for in-cabin massages. The cabins are fully equipped with all necessities. Each cabin is... More

My wife and were very impressed with Fire Mountain Inn. You know how certain people pay attention to every detail and do everything to an amazingly high level? Well that's what we found here. The owners have been doing this for 20 years and obviously love what they do. Just a magical setting, beautiful room that was well appointed, gracious... More

My husband and I have been coming to Fire Mountain for many years. It truly is one of our favorite vacation spots. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there this past weekend and it was amazing. From the cozy feel in our cabin to the magnificent sunset on Saturday night, our visit was perfection! Thank you, Hiram and Mathew!
