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

My wife and I travel to Highlands often all year long as we have family that lives there and in nearby Cashiers. We love to stay at the Old Edwards Inn but it is often full and quite pricey especially during the Spring to Autumn seasons. We have stayed at other places such as 200 Main, an Old Edwards Property,... More

It is a magnificent place... and thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers! One of my favorite things about the inn is that you feel like you are a million miles away from anywhere -- seems you found that magic, too! I believe that hospitality never goes out of style -- and it makes me very happy to... More

My husband and I just spent a relaxing weekend at the Inn and had a great time. We stayed in one of the cottages rather than the main house because the bathrooms looked larger online. We had stayed in the cottages before on the lower level and it felt small and sad but this time we went for a larger... More

We just returned from the most restful stay at The Inn at Half Mile Farm and loved every moment there. The Inn is simple, yet refined; with our room offering a serene woodsy view, a comfy bed, and elegant country decor. The breakfasts and the evening wine/appetisers were always delicious and creative. After a fabulous breakfast, one does not need... More

We had a wonderful time! This was our second time staying here. The staff is friendly, the room was perfect, and the food was excellent! We will definitely be returning. I only wish our stay had been longer.

We stayed in Room 14 and loved every moment of it. Wonderful deck, tub, fireplace, big comfy bed and high thread count sheets. It was so great to have a getaway and just remain on the property because it had everything we needed to relax. Breakfast was delightful and always special treat. Valentine's dinner was paired nicely with wines. Staff... More

We just returned from a weekend in Highlands and were lucky enough to stay at The Inn at Half Mile Farm. The property itself is just gorgeous - even better in person than the photos on line. The old white farmhouse looks out onto a serene lake and you immediately feel peaceful and relaxed on this special property. We were... More

We have stayed at the main part of the Inn at Half Mile, but over Thanksgiving, we rented one of the cabins that they have on the property. We were delighted with it's rustic charm and warmth. Stove made to look old but has the conveniences of new. Claw Foot tubs. Fireplaces in every room. Great covered deck with a... More
