Old Edwards is phenomenal! We stayed here in June 2014 while considering the resort as a wedding venue. We ultimately did not choose it, but let me be clear that our choice in NO WAY reflects the service or quality of this resort. From the moment we entered the grounds were were treated well by the staff. The grounds are... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful property over the 4th of July weekend. While they were booked full the service did not skip a beat. Jonathan at the Hickory pool was amazing and took great care of us. We loved our room in the Falls Cottage Suite. The room was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. We had... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Old Edwards Inn/Lodge and absolutely loved it. Our room was beyond cozy and the cool mountain weather allowed us to use the fireplace in our room in the evenings. The OEI grounds are beautiful! We enjoyed both pools, the main OEI and just relaxing.

Highlands North Carolina is a great place to relax and get away from it all. We have stayed at OId Edwards Inn numerous times. We just came back and were very pleased with our room, the lounge area and of course the wine garden. Normally we enjoy reading at the beautiful pool but the weather did not cooperate on this...

Once again had a fabulous stay at OEI! This time we were in the Rainbow Cottage- a 1 bedroom with sitting area which was so cozy. We used the Falls pool since we were right next to it and it was lovely. Special thanks to Hannah for taking care of us. Breakfast in Madison's was a treat- thank you Lily... More

We came up to escape the heat and had yet another wonderful stay at OEI. This time we stayed in the lodge and enjoyed the pool, spa, and great game room at night. Ford and service were fabulous. Can't recommend enough!

Old Edwards was incredible from the beginning. I almost hate to give it a review because I'd love to (selfishly) keep it a secret, but my new husband and I loved it there! We cannot wait to head back. It was relaxing from the beginning and in such a great spot that you could stay completely on the property and... More

We stayed here for four nights during a family wedding and fell in love with this property. As you drive in (we stayed in the Lodge rooms), you are greeted by a uniformed employee who takes your name and guides you to parking and check in. You are met with a glass of champagne and then taken to your room... More

Pulling in up front and not being sure where to park or check in I was greeted at the door, offered champagne taken to check in. Greeter went to car to get keys from husband, park... More

We discovered this 'Perfect Place' in the spring of 2011 and now just can't stay away. 'Perfect' meaning both our beloved OEI and the elegant mountain town of Highlands. We've been in March, April and September but this was the first time we went in the Summer and I was a bit afraid that we would find it to be... More
