My husband an I recently went to OEI. We got a Falls Cottage and the decor and room was AMAZING! I will say to ask for a room not near the road as we had some road noise from the nearby school beginning around 5:45 am which bothered us the first night. We were offered another room, but loved our... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights here in September. We stayed in a 1 BR cottage and it was delightful. This Inn knows how to make you feel welcome and special. Every last detail is perfect. From the Dove bars in the lobby to the warm, welcoming desk personnel we felt like we were the only guests. Our lunch at the... More

Second visit just as wonderful as our first one! Detailed in every way: warm welcoming; complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival; free room upgrade; soft music and fire logs on when we arrived in the room; welcome letter; lamps on; etc., etc. On ohhhhhh, the room!!!! Check out the pictures! If you enjoy first class lodging and dining in quiet... More

What a wonderful vacation! It takes a while to get to but well worth it. Located in the NC mountains, until you get on the property you don't realize how unique and peaceful and perfect everything is. Guests stay in the Inn proper or we were in a beautifully furnished cottage. The Spa was peaceful, beautiful, and I also had... More

We had a 3 BR cottage in Church Street Cottages and it was nothing short of spectacular! The rooms were huge, the family room area was cozy with a big fireplace and location was nice and secluded. Beds were great, heated travertine floors were wonderful, and overall we were very impressed. Our only negative was that these are set up... More

Spent my birthday at Old Edward's Inn. We were given a beautiful room in the new Falls Cottages which was exactly what we had asked for. What we did not ask for was the noise. The free standing cottage is built on the corner of two streets with a school one block down the road. Our bedroom windows were no... More

This is our fourth year at Old Edwards for Culinary Weekend and it's better every time we come. From heated floors and plush linens, Old Edwards pampers perfectly. The spa is not to be missed- as the only spa reminiscent of a library in a fine English home.

We just got back from our first visit and have already made plans to go back as soon as possible. My husband and I completely agree that Old Edwards Inn set a new standard for service and hospitality. Everyone provided absolutely outstanding customer service. I really do mean EVERYONE from the waiters in the restaurants to the spa technicians to... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 day R & R at the famous Old Edwards Inn in Highland, NC. Courteous staff, great breakfast in the Madison Room restaurant and simple, yet exquisite accommodations in the old lodge made for a great getaway.

We stayed a couple of nights at Rockwood Lodge (part of Old Edwards Inn) for my brother's wedding this past weekend. The house is amazing! Fully stocked with everything you need (paper towels, cleaning supplies, full kitchen, toiletries, etc.). It's gigantic, almost every bedroom has 2 huge beds and a sitting area with a fireplace and a bathroom. The views... More
