This was our third time at this historic hotel. The room we were in at the back of the hotel had been recently refurbished, painted, tiled etc. We had a king bed that was comfortable and a little balcony that we didn't use, preferring to sit on the front porch or in the rocking chairs downstairs at the front. We... More

We spend the night at the Highlands Inn. There is not a more convenient place to stay in Highlands, NC. You have a central location on the Main Street. Makes walking to shops,restaurants, boutiques very simple. The Inn is approximately 130 years old. We stayed in room 36 which had a nice high Queen size bed. The hotel does show... More

We had a great time at the Historic Inn. Loved the Gazebo cottage in the garden area. Lots of peace and quiet for us away from hustle and bustle off main street. Everything was perfect. Coffee in the early morn listening to the birds is a must when visiting.

This Inn is fabulous. It has history, great staff, and great location. You are right on the middle of town. We did not have to get in our car for a couple of days, walkers every where. The beds are comfortable and rooms very clean. Sit on the porch and relax with a glass of wine - what more can... More

We found this wonderful little Gem while driving down main street. Had a look at some rooms and the prices werent bad considering it was right in the heart of main street. Loved the front porch people watching and the close proximity to all the restaurants. The staff was lovely. We will return. Glad to know you are here.

From the moment we checked in we were blown away by the hotel team. The front desk made us feel like old friends and were so knowledgeable about the area from dining to hiking. We loved our room. It really reflected the charming mountain town feeling that brought us to Highlands. A glass of wine on the 2nd floor porch... More

Annual road trip with twin granddaughters took us to Highlands NC this year and for something different we stayed in this hospitable 134-year-old Inn on Main Street. The girls were delighted with the old-fashioned ambiance, as we were. Good restaurants nearby (Wild Thyme for one), ice cream, lots of shopping, jaunts to see waterfalls and a 400-year-old poplar tree so... More

Loved the rocking chairs and travel back in time. Great location and friendly front desk with good recommends (Mountain Fresh Grocery) and friend clientele. Appointed to match the time period with all the touches.

Hands down the most charming inn in town! The location was perfect being in the heart of Highlands. The staff was very accommodating and sweet. I would recommend this to anyone visiting! Wouldn't stay anywhere else next time I visit. Cannot wait to return!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in a front porch room. We absolutely loved our stay. The people watching on the front porch in the cool afternoons is delightful. I wish we could've stayed longer. What a charming place this is right in the center of town. We are looking forward to our return visit in the... More
