We had previously driven through this tiny but charming city and saw this historic looking Inn with every intention of returning to visit. I can tell you it 100% did not disappoint! Myself and my fiance were in for a treat to the most staff friendly and wonderful experience of our lives. We were greeted at the door with complimentary... More

My wife and I needed a little weekend away. Although this is only 2 hours from Atlanta our home it is truly a wild away. We were immediately greeted by a gentelman who gave us a tour of the hotel and took us to our Luxury Spa Suite. Absolutely amazing suite this was. We highly reccomend utilizing some of the... More

Amazing accommodations at the Hickory Lodge which is comprised of a private lodge with 4 hotel rooms opening to a large common area. The heated tile in the very large bathrooms was such a treat. Fresh cookies, robes, slippers, complimentary dove bars, an amazing fitness room with with many classes and complimentary spa access made this hotel over the top... More

A getaway with my husband - spent a day in the spa eating in the Cafe and two spa treatments, and ended two nights eating at Madison's (the mushroom bisque was to die for!) Excellent! I must go again!

Beautiful room in the original building. From heated tile bath floors, separate shower and bathtub, beautiful bed linens and excellent HVAC controls, all was done in spectacular fashion. The staff very attentive at check-in (champagne!), bellman, and service in the Hummingbird Lounge all very cordial. Terrific way to unwind after a full day in Highlands.

There's a reason this place is consistently well rated. The room was total luxury. The employees eager to please. The spa was top notch and the town quaint though a bit sleepy since it's off season. The main restaurant, Madison's, was maybe the best food and service I have ever enjoyed and I am a true foodie. Eager to find... More

Went for wife's 38th birthday. Stayed in spa suite which is very spacious with two separate indoor sitting areas, fireplace, DirectTV flatscreen, long outdoor terrace, mini-fridge, canopy king bed, jacuzzi tub, fantastic shower, dual sinks, and separate vanity mirror. It is mentioned many times before but the heated tiles in the bathroom are awesome. Walking into bathroom becomes a destination... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Old Edwards Inn and Spa on several occasions. Once at the Cottages and twice at the Lodge. Each experience has been five star. From the amenities to the service, this is truly a wonderful place to stay and get away from it all. I highly recommend utilizing the spa. Although it's not... More

Truly an amazing experience at this wonderful inn. It's set in one of our favorite towns because it's so quaint and quiet. We visit Highlands often but this was our first time to stay at Old Edwards and we were not disappointed. They fully understand the meaning of customer service. They catered to every request we had. I absolutely loved... More

My wife and I are natives of North Carolina and mysteriously have never heard of the Old Edwards Inn. An old high school buddy told me it was a great place so we made the drive. Put simply it is the best couples get away we have ever had. We are 52 years old and married for 25. We have... More
