I was so pleasantly surprised and delighted when we drove onto the grounds. The web page does not do this place justice..The grounds are beautiful, peaceful and just about perfect.. The staff went out of their way to help us as we arrived late and had to take our motorcycles off the trailer. We stayed in the Blacksmith's Shop cabin... More

I decided to surprise my Lady for a weekend stay at Highlands NC. It was a last minute plan. At first we could not find vacancy and we're told this is high season. That did not sound too promising. I was so determined to make it happen and googled B&B listings . I came across The Inn At Half Mile... More

Stayed here about 10 years ago and loved it- decided on a whim to go back for a weekend. The property itself is not only beautifully kept but also inviting. The staff is absolutely top notch from the five star chef, Jason to Vivian to the housekeeping staff. The food is incredible as well. We met some really nice and... More

My husband and I met my parents for the weekend at this lovely and charming Inn last weekend. We had no expectations and were more than pleasantly surprised at the rooms, the grounds and the wonderful staff. What a beautiful place to get away from it all. I had called earlier to ask if they would have almond or soy... More

My wife and I stayed at The Inn at Half-Mile Farm over the July 4th weekend. It was our first time to visit the amazing bed and breakfast, but it definitely won't be our last!

This place is the best. Scenic quiet tranquil. Best service ever - and the breakfast was fabulous. The room was so spacious and to be able to sleep with the windows open in July was heaven. The pond and ability to fish was an added bonus! And they are fur friendly-

Being able to leave the windows open in July is a luxury we're continually grateful for! I'm glad you could get some R&R while you were here -- more than anything, we want everyone to be able to slow down and enjoy some of the simpler things. I hope you'll come back and see us soon. Warmly, Kate More

We stayed in room 18 and it was absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The food was fantastic starting with checking in with the great homemade cookies, the afternoon wine and appetizers. We can't say enough about the gourmet breakfast. The staff and the owner was great and so friendly. We are already telling everybody about what a great place and we... More

Cannot say enough about this property. Great location, 5 minutes from town, great layout for everything from just relaxing and reading a good book to fishing, canoeing, hiking, swimming and, of course, shopping in town. The staff and owner were wonderful and very helpful and Jason, the chef, prepares a most unique gourmet breakfast each day. The rooms are very... More
