“Great First B&B Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

This was our first time to stay in a bed and breakfast, and Donna and Chris at the Colonial Pines Inn greatly exceeded our expectations! The accommodations were great, the food was outstanding, and the overall experience was terrific. We highly recommend Colonial Pines Inn to Highlands, NC, visitors and we plan to return when we can.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be very nicely appointed.

We have stayed at several B&Bs in Highlands and have found that Donna at the Colonial Pines Inn makes, without a doubt, the best breakfast in town!
Donna and Chris are also the nicest inn keepers that we have ever met. It is a real pleasure staying with them.

I wanted a quick get away in the mountains in a great B&B. I was looking for a nice country warm feel and a great breakfast. The brownie snacks and the incredible southern breakfast were outstanding. The room was comfortable and very clean. Donna was great on giving us super hiking recommendations and dining suggestions.

We will definitely repeat!

A quick get-away to Highlands was made perfect by our choice of Colonial Pines Inn B&B. We prefer B&Bs because they provide a truly "local" experience - this one is excellent. Because of the last-minute travel plan, the only available room was the "bargain basement." I was a bit skeptical but absolutely delighted - we will definitely stay there again! Breakfast was super, the innkeepers very informative and gave us some sightseeing suggestions we had seen nowhere in our brochures, etc. That made our trip a perfect getaway and we will def8initely return - and will try to always stay in the "bargain basement." That was A+!

I have been traveling to Highlands for 40 years. I have stayed with friends, rented houses, stayed in motels and B & B's or just visited for the day, but I have finally found the best place to stay. The breakfasts were wonderful, the bed comfortable and the company enjoyable. I will definitely be returning.

We live a little over an hour away from several wonderful mountain towns: Asheville, Cashiers, Hendersonville, Flat Rock and Highlands. We've stayed at inns in those towns, but not since we found Colonial Pines Inn in Highlands. We love bed & breakfasts and prefer to stay in them over hotels whenever we can.

Its very simplicity is what appeals to us. Their beds have high quality queen or king size mattresses, the breakfasts are fantastic and the inn's atmosphere is cozy and very relaxing. Located at the top of a hill, the inn gets clean mountain breezes. Beautiful sunsets are visible from 2 huge porches that have a hanging swing, and comfy chairs to read in. What the Inn lacks: noise, crowds and television in most rooms. It also lacks the outrageous room rates common to many bed & breakfast inns in desirable "getaway" locations.

From the painstaking restoration of the Inn to the vigilant maintenance of everything on the property; from each carefully chosen antique to the crispness of the ironed sheets on your bed, no detail is missed. From your first call or email to the innkeepers until you hand them back their keys, they are professional and polite as well as warm and friendly.

Like all good innkeepers, they are familiar with the local attractions, from historical to cultural to natural, and the local restaurants, from the sandwich shops and the ice cream shops to the different fine dining establishments.

Check out their website--it is as beautiful as the pictures show it to be!

This is the place we like to stay in Highlands. Probably the best value in town. The accomodations are clean. Breakfast is delightful. You can pay a lot more for lodging in Highlands. So if you want a nice stay without emptying your wallet, this is the place.
