Stayed a couple of nights in the cold season as a getaway. Was happy with the room, rate and service. Room was clean, service was good and the location was appropriate for our limited activities. It's not fancy but we didn't want fancy.... we wanted clean and homey. That's what we got. The hotel folks went above and beyond when... More

This is a great, family owned property in a place that can be very pricey. For me, Mitchells is a homey, comfy lodge for a third of the price of downtown Highlands hotels. Friendly staff with coffee and cookies every afternoon, comfy rooms with fireplaces and has an old lodge feel without busting the bank.

Stayed at the Mitchell Hotel from Saturday, December 5th thru Monday, December 7th and had a wonderful time. We stayed in room 19 and loved so much about the room. We were greeted by Robyn at check in. She was absolutely delightful and very patient with us as newcomers to the Highland area. The warm baked cookies and fresh pot... More

Great location, great people, great price. Beds were really not comfortable but it was clean, charming, quaint and cozy. Breakfast was good enough. We enjoyed the board games and cards provided. Disappointed that we had to provide our own firewood for the pavillon fire place.

I have stayed at Mitchell's Lodge & Cottages several times in the last few years, both in their basic room and also in one of the cottages. I just spent two nights there during a brief trip to Highlands. As it always has been, the best thing about Mitchell's Lodge is the friendly atmosphere and staff. Nice touches such as... More

We have been staying at Mitchell's motel for more than 20 years. At our most recent stay we were acutely aware of the lack of attention being paid to detail and cleanliness. We stayed in a "kitchen" suite and were extremely disappointed by the lack of basic kitchen utensils - all that was provided as dishware was service for 2,... More

We stayed in one of the Deluxe rooms of the lodge and it had the feel of being in a Log Cabin. The room had log furniture and a gas fireplace. It also had a private deck with rocking chairs. We loved the fact that the screened windows could be opened to let in fresh air! However, you could hear... More

Clean cozy and rustic close to downtown we had a suite was very nice home away from home, staff very helpful wish we could have brought our dogs but we didn't realize the cabins are the only rooms for pets next time we will book a cabin.

We were in Highlands for a wedding and this was our first stay at Mitchell's. We entered from Dillard Rd and found that the parking spaces were opposite of our direction of travel. No problem, we just drove past the office and turned around. There are actually two entrances to the property. We stayed in room 17. The room was... More

Mitchell's is well-located in Highlands, has nice grounds and setting with small stream running through the property, and has a nice outdoor pavillion with fireplace and tables and chairs. The accomodations range from cabins, rooms, and suites in the 3-story lodge like we rented. We had a deck overlooking the stream; a hot tub (in the kitchen?), a gas fireplace;... More
