This is the perfect place for just about any reason/occasion. The rooms are beautiful and private and luxurious, with every possible accoutrement. The property is idyllic...woods, lake, walking trails. Breakfast is a daily gourmet treat. Kate and her staff are charming and efficient and helpful. We are always treated like family. The Inn has become a yearly pilgrimage for us.... More

From the moment I called to reserve a room to the end of our delicious weekend- we were treated with a sincere interest in our experience! Beautiful grounds, inviting room and 5 star breakfast... close to great hiking and restaurants. Will definitely return! Thanks to Jason and Vivian for helping to make our stay the best!

We just returned from the most very nice stay at The Inn at Half Mile Farm> We really enjoyed our stay there. Amazingly, we were the only couple there our first night but the inn was full the following weekend...so we really got the "royal treatment". The Inn is not what what I would call "fancy" more of an elegant... More

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 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
