With the year coming to a close, we decided to escape the familiar and explore the Smokey Mountains and surrounding areas for our Christmas holiday. As we researched a place to stay, Fire Mountain resort leaped off our computer screen. After a call to Hiram we knew we had found the place to call home away from home - even... More

I am so glad we stayed at this mountaintop getaway versus staying in Downtown Highlands. I'm not going to get into details, because you need to have your own experience. But, the property is located on a mountaintop a few miles west of Highlands, which is easily accessible. The morning and evening views were spectacular and the staff gave us... More

You want to relax in middle of the nature? Then Fire Mountain is THE place to be. This fantastic ressort is just perfect to pull of the stress of the city. In October we've stayed in a luxery cabin with fire place and jacuzzi. From our bedroom we could see deep into the woods and after sundown the only sound... More

We have visited Fire Mountain every year since it has been open. The staff amazingly always seemed to have enhanced the service and surroundings each year.We have seen many wonderful changes to the inn and cabins. The friendliness and attention of the staff has always been excellent. We have toured the area and eaten at most on the surrounding restaurants.... More

By sheer luck my boyfriend and I booked a weekend at this quaint mountain top inn. The views from the property (particularly sunrise and sunset) are breathtaking. Moreover, unlike many other mountain inns, the rooms were not cluttered with tacky cabin decor but were pristine with a modern minimal look. The breakfast was delicious, substantial, and made fresh every morning... More

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
