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

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 were looking for a nice quite B&B to help celebrate our 30th Anniversary. We found 4 1/2 Street on Trip Advisor and made a great choice. The owners Rick and Helene were great hosts and truly made you feel at home. Very nice wine and appetizer greeting at night with delicious appetizers. The bed was extremely comfortable and the...

Just outside the center of town is an oasis. Quiet, beautiful and hidden away, the 4 1/2 Street in is the only place you should think about staying if you make it to Highlands, NC. The owners, Rick and Helene, treat you like family and are quick to help with anything you need. The food is wonderful and the place... More

If you are looking for laid back luxury in one of America's best mountain towns, look no further than the 4 1/2 Street Inn. The rooms are quaint, the food is great, and owners Ricky and Helene are spectacular hosts. An easy bike ride or drive from town or a two minute drive, you won't go wrong at this inn.... More

This was our second stay at the 41/2 Street Inn and it was a fantastic experience. Helene & Ricky are great people, friendly and very accomodating. The room we stayed (#1) was very clean and had a large bathroom which was great since I'm 6"2"' tall. The afternoon cookies and wine hour are second to none., We really enjoyed meeting... More

This is such a wonderful place to stay in Highlands. Our stay was too short and we plan to come back again for a longer stay. Helene & Rick are so welcoming and make you feel like you are a dear old friend up for a visit. Most of the people staying at the Inn were repeat customers and it... More

With small children it is so hard to get away. I am so happy you all got what you needed and felt welcomed here. It is such a peaceful place with the gardens and birds and decks and porches, yet so close to town. Thank you for the kind words and taking the time to write this review. Mostly, thank... More

Simply a charming inn in Highlands. The B & B is located in an old house that has been a boarding house for nearly a century, so it's got that comfortable, old-house feel, but with modern amenities. The best part, though, are the owners, Rick and Helene. I was in Highlands for a week-long conference, and I had to maintain... More

2 friends stayed with my husband and I for one night and all had an excellent stay, as always. The rooms were both lovely, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The hors d'oeuvres and breakfast were great, as they always are (and Helene doesn't mind giving out her recipes!!). Helene and Rick are great hosts - friendly and helpful. The location is... More
