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. The Inn is much like a comfortable home and that's the way the innkeepers Rick and Helene make you feel, right at home. Our... More

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.

Great place to stay. We were able to walk to town, very clean, bed linens high-end, loved the decor and rooms, food was fabulous - breakfast was not just a simple serving but they even had healthy options that were fantastic. They helped us make dinner reservations (even tho the restaurant was booked already) and we got a beautiful window... More

It is always wonderful to see you all. You are so right, it is like being in the middle of the country here, yet just a short, safe walk to town. When Main Street is busy, this is such a nice respite, and many of our guests enjoy just relaxing on the porch listening to the birds and reading a... More

This was our fourth stay at the Inn. Everything was wonderful as usual- gourmet breakfast, fresh from the oven cookies, happy hour and the peace and quiet! Rick and Helene make sure you always feel welcome. Thanks for another wonderful get away! We highly recommend staying there if you are in the highlands area.
