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! We stayed in room #2 in the main house. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. AMAZING breakfast both mornings. Skip the high end hotels... More

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.

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

A beautiful inn that feels like a remote mountain retreat, but it's just outside the town of Highlands. We would definitely stay here again! Excellent service, immaculate rooms, and so comfortable! Exactly what we were hoping to find to decompress and relax in the mountains.
