One of our favorite quickie getaways, since it's only 2 hours northeast of Atlanta, Highlands is a fun spot for some R&R. Our favorite place to stay is The Inn at Half Mile Farm. The suites are wonderful, with the best beds anywhere, fireplaces, high ceilings, great baths with huge showers and jetted tubs for 2. Private balconies with views... More

I'm not sure how this can't be #1 in it's category. We've been going to Highlands for years, but only just got around to staying here, back in November. It was great. It's an old farm house with a number of rooms tastefully added onto the back. Plus, they manage three, old, extremely well renovated log cabins just across the... More

Perfect getaway! We arrived on Friday afternoon and Jason(chef) had wonderful hors d'oeuvres and red and white wine setting out by the fire! Our room was upstairs with a queen bed and beautiful view of the lake. The bed was so comfortable we slept until we smelled the delicious breakfast cooking. We enjoyed our stay with wonderful company and food!... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here last week. Everything was wonderful. We loved the jetted tub and the private porch. Breakfast was great. The property is beautiful, the staff couldn't have been better. Can't wait to go back!

I don't consider myself a "nature girl", but this was a weekend getaway fantasy with all the bells and whistles. It was cold and a little rainy when my husband and I arrived, but you can't help but love your surroundings. The next two days were pure sunshine and icicles...we loved our room, the wine and hors d'oeuvres, hot tea/coffee... More

I am not one's typical Bed And Breakfast guy. My introduction to the proposition was several years ago in Nantucket, and I was in no particular rush to repeat the experience.

My wife and I always enjoy our stays at the Inn. Their attention to detail and their gourmet breakfasts are always a pleasant surprise no matter how many times we have stayed here. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing and the home made cookies in the sitting room makes your stay even more cozy as you sit around the fireplace.... More

We visited for an anniversary getaway. We were fortunate enough to get the last room they had available with little notice. Things couldn't have been better when we arrived. Driving up to the farm was beautiful. The driveway is long and winding with a great view of an apple orchard and the pond that the farm sits on. It was... More

Unreal experience. From the minute we arrived at the Inn, we were amazed. The staff (Jason, Carol, & Vivian) were truly amazing and made us feel like friends from the moment we met them. We stayed in Room 1, which we learned was the original master bedroom. The view from the room is unreal, two large ponds, huge Pines/Hardwoods, beautifuly... More
