We stayed at the lower single story (older) rooms. Be sure that you are OK with "rustic" before booking one of these units. The other areas of the facility looked newer and are probably more user-friendly. We had to put black garbage bags over the bedroom window at night becuse of the light streaming in. The shower is very small... More

This had the basics - nothing fancy. Jacuzzi in kitchen pretty funny. Kids liked that. Clean and functional. A drive into town. Smoking on premises allowed unfortunately. Probably would keep looking for another stay unless finances tight.

We have been staying at Mitchell's for over 20 years. Highlands is not really a place for kids but they loved this motel and have fond memories of it. It is the only place in Highlands proper I would take children. A little mountain stream bubbles behind the lodge and a pond with fish is steps away. Very cozy and... More

Our stay here was wonderful. It is a charming place. If you want brand new and modern please don't stay here. You won't be happy. If you want a cute place in the mountains this is it! They have a few cottages a newer lodge and an older lodge which is set up like a motel. We stayed in the... More

We love coming to Highlands to beat the heat of Summer. Staying at Mitchell's Lodge was comfortable and quiet. We have stayed at two other places before and this place became top on our list. Beds are comfortable, Rooms are clean, the small Kitchenette is a plus. The only suggestion is they should upgrade the TV sets to 32" HDTVs.... More

What a pleasant surprise. Just as we had abandoned our Internet search for reasonably priced last minute accom in Highlands NC, we drove upon this little gem just off the main drag (a short two block walk to the shopping and restaurant precinct). We walked in and $98 later we were lying down on a reasonably comfy bed looking out... More

Our 6 nights at Mitchell's were great. We stayed in two of the cottages ( Hemlock and Chestnut) during our time there. Both were clean, comfortable, and spacious. We spent some very pleasant time sitting on the porches of both of our cottages and enjoying the mountain air. We especially liked that we could bring our dog with us. The... More

Wonderful, secluded gem in the mountains. Stayed in one of the cabins. It was equipped with everything we needed. When we arrive windows were open, lamps were on and it was quite a nice experience. Fireplace with gas logs, very easy to turn on. Quite cozy!

Very nice, well appointed room with cabin cozy atmosphere. The staff was very friendly, breakfast had a good selection of items, and we were able to bring our dog with us. We loved that we could walk into town for dinner, and the market just down from Mitchell's had an amazing selection of adult beverages. We will return again. Loved... More

This is a charming and rustic hotel just 3-4 blocks from Highlands Main Street. My room was large and comfortable. The furniture and fixtures gave it the appearance of a mountain cabin, gas log fireplace and all. The room was clean but a bit dark with the lighting and the wood walls and furniture. The staff was extremely attentive and... More
