This was my second time at the Old Edwards and will now be a yearly trip. Lush beautiful landscaping everywhere you look, beautiful rooms in the historic inn and lodge cottages and impeccable service. The town provides at least 2 full days of awesome shopping, and if you are lucky enough to have sunny warm weather, the pool is exquisite.... More

What a beautiful resort! Our family of four went for a long weekend and totally enjoyed our stay. The grounds were beautiful and the staff very courteous and friendly. We will have to save up to come again!

After camping for 5 days we ended our trip at Old Edwards and it was blissful. We stayed in the Falls Cottages, right next to the pool. Our room was beautiful with a huge multi head shower, huge tub and heated floor! I got a hot stone massage and pedi and could easily have spent the entire day at the... More

Highlands, NC is a beautiful little resort town with loads of outdoor activities, nice shopping and restaurants with lots of relaxation and Old Edwards is just the place to unwind! I went for a girl's weekend - simply fabulous! We stayed in one of the Falls Cottages which was lovely, most comfortable and luxurious. I loved the balconies, bathrooms with... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to be treated to free champagne and an Dove ice cream bar at check-in. We stayed in a luxury suite and it met the mark of being called 'luxury'. These brand-new wonderfully appointed properties left no expense and upgrade spared. The four-jet, water can head shower was wonderful. The balcony offered a lovely... More

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend here. The accommodations were luxurious and the staff friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the spa after hiking several miles on mountain trails each day. Don't miss stopping for a cocktail in the Hummingbird Lounge. The atmosphere is charming and relaxing. We will definitely return.

What a wonderful place Old Edwards is. It was our first time to the area and we will be back. We stayed in Falls Cottages and it was terrific. Both pools are spectacular and the service was very, very good. We didn't really eat on property, with the exception of small eats from the cabanas. Pimento cheese was very good,... More

Everything is done the right way at Old Edwards. Excellent amenities, rooms are exquisite, staff is friendly and helpful, and the spa was perfect. It was a great place to visit. The pool (and bar staff) made you feel like you were the only people there.

Our first stay here to celebrate our anniversary - the staff was very attentive and took great care of us including upgrading our room to a wonderful spa suite - cannot wait to return for a longer stay!

This is a beautiful place that stands out for its lovely atmosphere and accommodations, it's excellent food, and most particularly, it's attentive staff - many of them on hospitality management internships from other countries. An example is Jonathan (born in China but grew up in Indonesia, I believe). He brought me champagne when I checked in, and when I ran... More
