My husband and I recently went back for our second stay at 4-1/2 Street Inn B&B. As with our first visit, this one was great. Lovely clean rooms, excellent breakfasts, beautiful lawn, peaceful and quiet setting - what more could anyone want? We highly recommend 4-1/2 Street for anyone visiting Highlands.

Rich and I found 4 1/2 Street Inn waaaaay back in 1994. We are still coming back after twenty years. That tells all about the hospitality and excellent service Helene and Rick provide in their lovely home. They have a way to make their guests feel like family and that is so special. The setting is peaceful and quiet. Love... More

Thank you both so much for welcoming us into your home to help us celebrate our 1st anniversary. We had always wanted to stay in a B&B and could not have picked a better one than 4 1/2 Street Inn. We will cherish the memories always. Highlands is such a beautiful area and we hope to return soon! Tony and... More

Everything about the inn is comfort and relaxation and Helene and Rick seem to anticipate your every need. These wonderful... More

Great setting, few blocks from town, beautiful grounds, wrap around porch and rocking chairs. Looking for peace, serenity, and relaxation this is it! Rooms are Immaculate and have top of the line bedding and linens. Made a call to get information about a reservation, received great assistance over the phone from Helene. The staff, Helene and Rick are relaxed, but... More

Delightful accommodations and wonderful hosts. We will definitely return. Helene and Rick go out their way to maximize each visitor's experience. Local hiking and scenery is virtually next door an the local restaurants are excellent.

I am so happy you got what you needed here. This whole area is amazing, and you all were able to explore so much if it for the week you were here. My biggest challenge was trying to make sure there was something new on the menu for you every day. Thank you for bringing your friends, and being such... More

My husband and I first discovered the 4 1/2 Street Inn 8 years ago and have been coming back ever since. We absolutely love this place! There is a unique aura about this fabulous inn that truly makes you feel like you are at home. And honestly, for me at least, it feels like I'm in my own grandmother's home... More

Wow, thank you. Sometimes it is nice to travel back to a simpler time. Rocking on a porch sharing experiences in the cool mountain air definitely does that. There is something about Highlands that is so grounding. Before we moved here, I always thought we were better here than anywhere else. And now look, 18 years later we are still... More

If you like that lay back, feel like you're home kind of feeling, you'll enjoy your stay, when visiting the town of Highlands, tucked away in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Hosts, Rick and Helene love what they do and if you're a dog lover like me, you'll want to get to know Jake, a friendly black lab, who... More

My husband and I plus our three grown children met here for a vacation. We've stayed in bed and breakfasts before, but this was our best experience yet. The inn itself is beautiful and comfortable. The breakfasts were awesome and happy hour each evening was a nice surprise. The owners, Rick and Helene, made us feel so welcome and at-home.... More

We are so happy you found us and enjoyed your stay here. You are so right. It is hard imagine how cool it can be here, especially in the evenings and early mornings.
