Highlands NC can be an expensive area for travelers, but we stopped at the Chandler Inn, because it looked so quaint and comfortable; a real mountain setting. What a surprise when we discovered that it was also incredibly reasonable for a comfortable room that included a delicious hot breakfast. The owners are delightful. Call ahead if you have a pet to find out if their "pet room" is available. The Inn is close to the retail district of Highlands, but not within walking distance. We cannot wait to return; wouldn't stay anywhere else in Highlands.
