Beautiful Inn and surroundings! The furnishings in the Inn and our room were very nice and comfortable. They serve a delicious breakfast and also serve wine and orderves late afternoon. Our only complaint is that we had a room on the ground floor in an adjacent building and were disturbed by the couple upstairs. The floors are hardwood and it... More

The Inn is absolutely lovely, and so are the staff. They make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door! We were given a tour around the inn on the way to our amazing room (#18 Bridal Veil Falls) and invited to have wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening. The bed was so comfortable, it... More

Stayed here for honeymoon, and the experience was truly remarkable. We were the only guests when we arrived as it was the start of the summer hiking season. The management made us feel welcome, and our room was outstanding. Breakfast and appetizers each day where PHENOMENAL, so much so that my wife and I bought the cook book to try... More

The Inn was bought by Old Edwards Properties the week before we arrived. Staff is in flux, but performed well. The location is perfect - in the country but just a few miles from Highlands. Ideal for a visit to the Highlands/Cashiers Chamber Music festival.The garden and lake view from the front porch is spectacular, but few rooms have this... More

Beautiful view and accommodations, from the person that greets you on arrival (Carol) to the wonderful breakfast which includes "Katy" and her playful manner will delight you. If you don't enjoy this stay… shame on you :)

This is the perfect place for just about any reason/occasion. The rooms are beautiful and private and luxurious, with every possible accoutrement. The property is idyllic...woods, lake, walking trails. Breakfast is a daily gourmet treat. Kate and her staff are charming and efficient and helpful. We are always treated like family. The Inn has become a yearly pilgrimage for us.... More

From the moment I called to reserve a room to the end of our delicious weekend- we were treated with a sincere interest in our experience! Beautiful grounds, inviting room and 5 star breakfast... close to great hiking and restaurants. Will definitely return! Thanks to Jason and Vivian for helping to make our stay the best!

We just returned from the most very nice stay at The Inn at Half Mile Farm> We really enjoyed our stay there. Amazingly, we were the only couple there our first night but the inn was full the following weekend...so we really got the "royal treatment". The Inn is not what what I would call "fancy" more of an elegant... More

Upon arrival we were very happy with what we saw. We were eager to tour the place. The property is beautiful but then we had issues with our room. The primary issue was that the heater made a horrible nonstop roar that never stopped! Every 8 minutes it roared louder for about 30 seconds then went back to the normal... More

David, We are very sorry that you had a bad experience... and wish you had mentioned it to us that evening -- as we would have gladly moved you to a different room or adjusted the heater for you. We did go check the heater once you told us about the problem - but you had already checked out! It... More
