“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

A group of us stayed at the Chandler for a wedding in late June. Highlands is a spectacular area and we could not have been more pleased with the quaint and convenient Chandler Inn. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owners and staff are friendly and extremely helpful for 1st time visitors to the area. Breakfasts are delicious! Thanks for a great visit.

I found this place on-line while searching for a nice spot where my wife and I could observe our 56th wedding anniversary. Owner Randy up-graded us to a suite close to the parking area to make it more accessible for my wife, a cancer patient. Complete with kitchen, sitting room with remote gas fireplace and TV, king bed with luxurious Sealy Ultra Plush mattress, and well-appointed shower and dressing area--all convenient to downtown restaurants, shops, galleries, and the playhouse, where we got into opening night of "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story." And the sumptuous breakfasts served by Leta--baked souffles and French toast--were superb. Private entrance to each facility. All of it at a very reasonable rate. Going to Highlands? Make it The Chandler Inn. No regrets.

This rather European establishment is nestled in an amazing rain forest replete with luxurious flowery plants. There are several areas where one can simply sit outside in the shade and read a book or have a quiet conversation with another guest or companion. Each room seems to belong to a separate establishment. Great modern flat screen TV does not detract from the affluent bedding and big fluffy bath towels. The entire room was immaculate; the bed really comfy.
WE also appreciated suggestions about restaurants as we were new to the area. Both restaurants the owners recommended were high quality!! Also, they actually arranged for us to go to one restaurant when it had a cancellation(unusual event in the town).
Breakfast is so special here. Individual quiches, baked sweet toasts and cereals, good coffee with plenty of cream all contribute to a hotel which really cares what the patrons need.

This was the third time we have been at the Chandler Inn in Highlands. As always it was outstanding from signing in to signing out. Breakfast was great and room was clean, comfortable and very private. The host provides information of the area and treats everyone as thier personal friend and house quest! Thanks for a great week end "Up there!"

My wife and I spent a very quiet early spring weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed it, rain and all. Rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Even though we were the only ones there they made sure we had an enjoyable experience, and a great breakfast spread. We will be back to stay again.

Excellent, personable service. Delicious breakfast (even breakfast in bed!!). Terrific location for Highlands or Cashiers. Clean, cozy rooms. Felt right at home--like visiting family in the mountains. Thanks for the Valentina!!

Randy and Lety are awesome innkeepers.We went to Highlands for a long weekend and were delighed to spend the weekend in a beautiful king room with gas fireplace,rainhead showers and a bed that had the same mattress that is used by the Ritz Carlton Hotels.The gourmet breakfast prepared by Lety was savored at the community table while enjoying the wonderful company of couples from Cornelia,Easley and Decatur.On top of all this was a beautiful two inches of snowfall.We will definitely return soon to spend another weekend with Randy and Lety.
