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

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

My daughter myself and my mother in law stayed at 4 1/2 Street Inn for 2 nights may 16-18. The weather turned cool and we had a delightful fire in the parlor fireplace with afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres that were truly out of this world delicious. Forget dinner. These were the best I've ever had and all prepared by... More

Although you have to leave, you can always look forward to coming back. We loved meeting 3 generations of such interesting and accomplished women. It is a shame to have found out so late in your stay that your mother in law and Ricky shared a passion for theater and she is such an accomplished thespian. Although, we might not... More

My husband and I came here for a quick getaway from Atlanta to celebrate our two-year wedding anniversary. The Inn was just as I pictured it--cozy, nestled in nature, and yet lively when it came to social hour! In addition to meeting many wonderful guests (all return visitors of the Inn--a great sign for us, I should add!) we had... More

We have been to many B & B's over the years, but this was definitely one of the best: very clean and comfortable, conveniently located with a quick walk to downtown Highlands, delicious buffet breakfast, and a really fun get-together with wine and appetizers each evening at 5:30. Helene and Rick know how to make their guests feel special!
