My husband and I stayed here in May during a road trip through the area. The food, the beautiful room and the comfort of the inn remain a great memory. Rick and Helene were extremely helpful and friendly; Rick provided valuable assistance in fixing my husband's drone.. We enjoyed a relaxing pre-dinner cocktail with tasty raspberry chipotle relish (which we... More

Ricky and I are so happy you have such wonderful memories of the the Inn and Highlands. It is truly a special place. Our spacious yard was a great place for your husband to play with the Drone, and it is good that Ricky is so good at fixing things so we could all see it fly. Thank you so... More

My wife and I have stayed at the 4-1/2 Street Inn some 20 (or so) times, and would not consider staying any other place in Highlands. We love the town, the Inn, but most of all, we love the InnKeepers - Helene and Rick, who have become like family. If you want "fancy" or "highbrow", go elsewhere. But if you... More

Thank you so much! You all feel like family too. I am glad you are able to have as much interaction with other guests as you want, but feel like you have enough privacy when you want to, or need to, just retreat. We try hard to pamper and spoil our guests, but without pretense. You are so right, it... More

This was our first visit to Highlands and we loved the area. A great find was 4 1/2 Street B&B. It is very close to town but far enough away to still be able to enjoy nature. The B&B is quaint, comfy and located on a large lot with beautiful surroundings. Rick & Helene were wonderful hosts! And the big... More

This was our 1st stay at this welcoming inn, and Rick and Helene were so friendly and hospitable; we quickly felt at home. Breakfast was fabulous and they gladly shared recipes. Their yard and porch are beautiful and relaxing. Very short drive to downtown shopping and restaurants. We also enjoyed our visit with their dog and cats. We'll definitely return!

We are so glad you felt at home here, and were able to enjoy the grounds and Highlands. Although Jake, our black Lab, is in the common areas of the inn, we always invite our guests into our personal owners quarters to enjoy the kitties. We find we cannot let them into the inn as many people have allergies to... More

Wonderful little B&B. The place has 10 rooms, all nicely decorated...but not elaborately. This is a rustic B&B. Host Rick supplies good humor at cocktail hour, hostess Helene supplies a mighty fine breakfast. People, including my wife, were asking for recipes which she gladly shares. The B&B is within walking distance of a wonderful downtown. And is one block from... More

My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Inn back in August. This was our 4th stay at this lovely inn and I'm sure we will have many more visits in the future.

We had a great stay at 4-1/2 Street in to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. Highlands is a beautiful place and so is the inn. Lovely breakfasts and the cocktail hours were fun too, having a glass of wine and a bite before heading out to dinner. We'll stay there again for sure.
