“Mountain Wildflowers in Bloom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

Stayed Friday through Sunday in Highlands at Chandler Inn.
In my opinion having a Inn keeper that personally answers the phone, thanks me for staying with them, and provides what they promise means a lot.
Chandler Inn is very nice. Beds and linens very comfortable. Gas fireplace in room very nice. Grounds were full of flowers and they are right! Best Breakfast in the Mountains. Conversation at breakfast is fun. Within walking distance to town. Walk across highway and use 41/2 Street for less traffic. I would recommend booking one of the quite rooms in the back, second floor. Weather was perfect, Inn was very comfortable hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Book early, this is a favorite of wedding parties

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.

The Caretakers really greet you and make you feel at home. Randy really gives you the info you need to enjoy your stay and encourages you to make his in. Your own. My wife and I have had mixed experiences with B&B's (admittedly we've only visited a few) but we will return to Chandler Inn. In fact we already booked a return visit to enjoy the fall leaves changing color. You won't be disappointed.

Quiet, comfortable, great location. Wonderful friendly owners. Fireplaces in every room, and gourmet breakfast makes this inn a must visit in North Carolina...

Really more of a small inn than the usual B&B, which is a plus in my book. Separate entrances for all the rooms. Each room has its own bathroom & temp control. The rooms themselves are a bit dated, but they do the job. Ours (#201) had a cozy gas fireplace and a mini-fridge, as well as a little table and chairs on the small porch area out front that looked over the inner courtyard.

Location is a quick drive away from the center of town. You could walk it in a pinch, I suppose. Wireless internet was available, but the signal was a bit weak/slow in the room. Parking is out front or around back--either way, very convenient to the rooms.

The highlight was the breakfast though. The usual toast and cereal was available, but they also provided two different "hot" dishes each morning, baked up and served in two-person-sized ramekins. French toast, baked oatmeal, fluffy omelet casseroles... all of it was very good!

OK, if you cannot stay at The Old Edwards Inn because its booked up; Then do not blow alot of money on anything else in Highlands. The Chandler Inn is just a stones throw off main Street and is a very charming little place. It reminds me of a place in Carmel California. The rooms are clean and neat. White linens on brass beds. Decorating is not fancy, but rooms and baths seem updated. The guy running it is a hoot; and his wife makes a killer breakfast ................I loved the place because it is what it is. This is not a B&B trying to be something its not. The location is great the rooms were very nice, and from what I could tell all very different. Breakfast is served with the owners and other guests just hanging out and having a good time............ The best thing is that all the rooms are entered from the outside, so no shared halls or creepy next door neighbors................ Like I said Old Edwards Inn in Highlands is one of the nicest places in the country, very $$$$$ and hard to book ; The Chandler Inn is a bargain, clean and fun....................... I have now enjoyed both. And would gladly stay at either again.
