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.

In the midst of our stay right now. This is a really wonderful and relaxing place and Rick and Helene are fabulous innkeepers. You've found the place...no need to look elsewhere. Everything you could want or need is here.

This is our third time staying with Rick and Helene at the 4-1/2 Street Inn in Highlands. I can't imagine a better place to spend a long weekend (or week if you have the time). They work so hard to make you feel like you're among friends/family (which I'm convinced we are). Always good to catch-up with Jake and to... More

Thank you for the kind words. We try very hard to make people feel like they have a home in the mountains. My brother gave that Taylor guitar to the inn for the sole purpose of our guests to have a nice guitar to play. It was an amazingly generous gift, and many happy notes have crossed its strings. We...

We visited Highlands for our 38th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed in the Inn. The Inn is close to the town center so you can walk "downtown" if you want. The house is charmingly old with a history, well kept and clean. Helene's delicious B'fast was served buffet style so you could eat inside or take it out... More

The porch is a favorite part of the inn for many. People often comment on how sitting on the porch, watching the birds, reading, or engaging in conversation takes them back to a simpler time, before all of our electronic devices. I am so happy you were able to enjoy it. Happy Anniversary again, and thank you for the kind... More

You won't be disappointed. The house was perfect for a girls weekend with plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Helene, Rick and Jake went out of their way to make us feel like family; we felt so at home we sat on the patio for hours playing cards. The breakfast was delicious; the evening wine and fellowship allowed... More

You all were so much fun! Motorcycles, cars, card games, shopping, dining, wine... You could not have helped but to have had a wonderful time.

My daughter and i had a lovely stay at the Inn- great breakfasts especially the apple pancakes and Helene and Rick were very helpful. Very nice to sleep with the windows open, rock on the porch and read, and meander into town.

Rick and Helene made us feel completely at home in their home! My wonderful daughter planned this "Mother/ Daughter birthday weekend" for us at the Inn and it couldn't have been more perfect!

When you stay in this over 100 year old Inn, filled with antiques; you come away having been treated like not just the Inn keeper's guests but like their friends. I got a peek at most of the bedrooms and they are true to the photos on the website. I asked questions by phone and got all the answers. There... More

Ricky and I so enjoyed meeting you both. It is such a small world that your husband connected with a family friend on our porch, and you all will stay in contact with that couple. It often happens on our deck and porch that people find new friends to keep up with outside of the Inn. I am glad you... More
