My husband and I just returned from a few days at Half Mile Farm! It was an absolute PERFECT stay. The room was truly amazing. The cutest. A perfect mixture of nostalgia with all of the modern amenities! We stayed in Room 18th which was truly amazing and known as the honeymoon suite! Gorgeous fireplace, modern bathroom & a splendidly...

We are so happy that you loved your stay at Half-Mile Farm, especially as guests who have already experienced Old Edwards Inn and Spa. One reason we purchased Half-Mile Farm is that it rounds out our offerings and gives our guests even more choices for tailoring a stay that is perfect for you. We love Carol, Vivian and Jason too!...

Half Mile Farm is so perfect, that writing any review cannot do it justice. Mirror Lake Road travels along the beautiful lake with trees changing color reflecting in the water. Large groupings of different size pumpkins flanked the entry. My memory is flooded With wonderful glimpses of falls years ago in New England! The public rooms are well decorated and... More

My wife and I recently visited The Inn at Half Mile Farm which has only recently been taken over by Old Edwards Hospitality. If you are looking for a place that is quiet, peaceful, has an idyllic setting beside scenic Mirror Lake and gives you the feeling that you are completely away from the rush of this world then Half...

The Inn was the very best B/B we have ever visited. From the greeting at your arrival from Carol and Kiley to the very end everything was top of the line. The setting is very bucolic and picturesque. The rooms are large and very comfortable, we stayed in the main house. The Inn is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We... More

We stayed here a few weeks ago for two nights. Although a very different property than the rest of OEI, Half Mile Farm is just as charming and offers other delightful perks. We arrived just before the daily reception where guest can enjoy wine and snacks in the sitting area and rocking chairs on the back porch. Fresh cookies are... More

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 :)
