“Beautiful Pet Friendly Boutique Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

This was our first time visiting western North Carolina and The Park on Main really made our time there special. The hotel had its grand opening just two weeks before our stay. Everything was immaculate, beautifully decorated and the staff was beyond accommodating. We are avid dog lovers and even though we weren't able to travel with our dogs on this trip, we really appreciated the attention to detail that Park on Main demonstrated for those traveling with their furry friends. There was a comfy Orvis dog bed and big ceramic dog dish in the room, along with. gorgeous dog portraits throughout the lobby and rooms. Our room was very spacious and had a separate sitting or working area outside of the bedroom (with large flat screen TVs in the sitting and bedroom area). The décor and furnishings in the room were lovely and the in-room Keurig coffeemaker and complimentary continental breakfast made us feel right at home! Parking is conveniently located in a brightly lit parking garage under the hotel at no extra charge. Lastly, you can't beat the perfect location right on Main Street were you have a variety of gourmet restaurants and local shops to choose from.

I have nothing but great things to say about this new hotel and its staff (especially Jessica at the front desk) and encourage people to visit the gorgeous, pet friendly town of Highlands and stay at The Park on Main while you are there!

This hotel is absolutely beautiful!, comfortable, and right on Main Street. You couldn't ask for a better location or friendlier staff. Liz an Tim were great, as well as the remainder of the staff I encountered. The hotel is centered around a wonderful courtyard and fountain. This would be the perfect venue for an event or social gathering . Everything you need is within a short walking distance, from great shopping to fun dining. It really is a magical place!. A great small town to walk and explore. I will definitely return. Pet lovers are accommodated and welcome to this upscale hotel as well!

The hotel is squeaky clean new, nicely decorated, beautifully landscaped, with wonderful attention to detail (lush linens, lots of flowers, and an excellent breakfast is included), and a perfect location along Highland's Main Street. AND it is pet friendly. Wanting to escape the heat and humidity of lowlands South Carolina I consulted tripadvisor, made an online reservation (clicking on the very reasonable AAA rate), grabbed some kibble and my dog, and hightailed it to Highlands! Aaah, the fresh, cool, clean mountain air. Heaven. So nice to have a friendly, safe, pretty place to stay--all within walking distance of downtown Highlands attractions: shopping (retail hiking) and sidewalk restaurants (an important consideration for those traveling with dogs). I will definitely go back.

Room Tip: My room was on the courtyard, a short walk to lobby breakfast bar.

at the time of our stay, this hotel had only been open 2 weeks.

Right in walking distance to restaurants, theater, shopping and more, this pet friendly setting is striking with its beautiful courtyard in the center and convenient parking. The real WOW factor strikes you when you enter your room. We had a beautiful fresh living area, perfect for relaxing or having a drink with friends. There is a Keurig coffee maker, small fridge and large screen TV with more channels than any human really needs. Comfortable looking pet stations were in the living area.

The showers were huge marble showers with a bench seat. Marble countertops in the bath area came with clean scented soaps and shampoos. Use of a blow dryer was also provided.

The beds were spa fresh with an unbelievable comfortable mattress and the clean white linens were snuggle soft along with plush white pillows. Generous closet space. One of the best features are the French doors and small balcony off every room. And the price... Very reasonable. I have paid more in Highlands for a single room without half these features.

Hope this little gem keeps it up, I may become a regular, even without a pet. :)

Room Tip: Make reservations early. 2 night min.

There Is a wonderful staff at this fabulous upscale boutique hotel. The Park on Main Hotel has its very own park in the middle of the hotel that gives you the New York park feeling, with tables for guest to enjoy a nice glass of wine with the view of the elegant water fountains. The rooms are very spacious with very nice Italian FRETTE Linens, the bathrooms are so nice with the walk in showers and the heated Italian marble floors. Coffee in the room in the morning with each room equipped with a Keurig Coffee Maker along with a mini fridge good for left overs from the dinning of the near by restaurants. Also, available is a light continental breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay at The Park on Main Hotel and planning to stay again very soon. Thank you Michael & Cristen and the rest of The Park on Main Hotel Staff for making our stay so enjoyable. Also, really enjoyed the grand opening celebration. Mr. Pickles was so handsome in his outfit.

We were referred to The Park on Main Hotel by a local restaurant because it was dog friendly and they knew we were traveling with our sweet Hudson (a12 yr old cocker spaniel). The hotel front desk was very helpful and when we asked about a dog sitter they were more than happy to assist us. Within 30 minutes we got a call back and was told they found us a pet sitter. The photos online don't do the property justice. When we arrived it was a very pleasant surprise. What a charming entrance and the beautiful pet portraits on the walls were so tastefully done. From the decor, to the staff, and the layout of our suite, we could tell a lot of thought and love went into putting this lovely boutique hotel together. We hope to have our Hudson around for many more years, but even without him, we still plan to make The Park on Main our home in the Highlands whenever we visit.

We stayed at the Park on Main last weekend over the 4th of July. The hotel opened on Tuesday and we checked in on Thursday. We were greeted by Jessica at the front desk and the Manager Michael. It was amazing how together they had things only 2 days running. The lobby was very pretty, there is a beautiful courtyard with flowers, 2 fountains and many places to sit and relax enjoying the morning or anytime. The rooms were beautiful, several types to fill all of your needs.
Highlands, NC is a beautiful and The Park on Main Hotel and staff made it a great weekend. Our family could not say enough, we loved the Park on Maine! We hope to visit again soon. Thank you to Michael, Jessica and the entire staff!

Room Tip: Great experience! Loved our room, you could walk right out into the courtyard.
