We reserved approximately 3 weeks ahead and received a prompt confirmation. But then while driving to the Inn on the scheduled day of arrival, we received a call from the owner informing us that the entire Inn staff was in Atlanta, but that our key would be waiting for us and to make our selves at home. We were amazed... More

My wife and I spent our 35th anniversary at the Main Street Inn, Highlands North Carolina. A wonderful place to stay. The food at the bistro was excellent! The filet was exceptional and the quinoa with sautéed vegetables was absolutely fantastic! Wonderful service and friendly people.

My wife and I had an amazing time at the Main Street Inn this past weekend. The location couldn't be more perfect and the owners and staff were more than helpful with anything that we asked. The price was more than reasonable for such nice accommodations. We will absolutely be staying there in the future.

My wife booked a room at this Inn after viewing it on the Chamber of Commerce website. We had eaten at the Bistro restaurant in the Inn a number of times and were always pleased with the food. But when we were shown to our $165/ night room in the Guesthouse we were appalled. The room was very very small,... More

We are a 1885 Historic house that has been converted many years ago into the Inn you see today. Our rooms are in keeping with the room sizes of... More

We were told by a few locals that the Main Street Inn has new owners. Whereas, it was once a true bed and breakfast, that is no longer the case. Coffee was put out downstairs at 8:30 a.m. with one-inch square dry sweet bread. We ate delicious breakfasts during our stay down the street at the County Fresh Market. The... More

Mu husband and I spent 2 nights here in 2003 for our honeymoon. The value was good, the rooms were very pretty and what I would have expected. We stayed in the front left room in the building in the back, I think that the rooms in the house would have had much better views, but we enjoyed the room... More

We loved the Main Street Inn!!! The rooms are beautiful and charming. We stayed during winter so the restaurant was not open but the atmosphere was so warm, friendly and inviting!!! We were told to make ourselves at home. We enjoyed sitting out on our balcony and downstairs in the common area by the fire. The staff was very friendly,... More

The location could not be beat. This was a last minute day trip that my husband and I went on and the old Edwards was sold out so we booked here. Our room was spacious. The tv was super tiny and Not close to the bed- off to the side. The shower is so small and water pressure was not... More

Had a wonderful weekend at the Main Street Inn with a group of friends. The location is perfect, the staff friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable, unique and eclectic at this historic inn (although we spent very little time in them). Most of our time was spent in the common areas and around the fire, enjoying the ambience... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Inn. This time was for New Year's Eve. Highlands is not a rocking town on New Year's but that is what we wanted. There were 3 couples in our group and I think maybe another two to three rooms were rented. The staff was very accommodating in letting us have a pre-eve party... More
