“wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Our small group was fortunate enough to find this treasure on our first visit to the Highlands area. Our hosts Colin and Raleigh were delightful and directed us to great restaurants and shopping. Each morning started with coffee around the table with other guests followed by Raleigh's delicious breakfast.
We are already planning our next year's return trip!

My finance and I had a wonderful stay with our delightful hosts Colin and Raleigh. They are experienced innkeepers and have created a gem of a property very close to town (on the Atlanta side next to Highlands Country Club). You feel like you are at home in their home, which has a small number of rooms but is BIG on decor, places to relax, and has beautiful grounds with multiple water features. The house is easy to access, and the breakfast was excellent. Really a great experience.

My husband and I stayed at Highlands House over Labor Day weekend. Our downstairs room was very large and had a sitting area and a fireplace. The Inn is on a large private lot and has streams and waterfalls all over the property. It also has secluded outdoor sitting areas all over the property. It is very private and quiet, which we like. The inn had beautiful decor and was filled with many unique items. The owners, Colin and Raleigh were the perfect hosts and helped us with selections in Highlands. They are charming and friendly and liked to get to know us. They welcomed our 2 goldendoodle dogs and they had a great time exploring the property. It was a perfect vacation and we will definitely be going back many times!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful.

Every year I head to one of my favorite destinations - Highlands NC - and stay with my favorite innkeepers, Raleigh and Colin at Highlands House! It is truly a magical place - starting with a fabulous breakfast by the waterfall and ending with cocktails in the very elegant living room.
Raleigh and Colin are very hands-on and love to spend time with their guests! Their stories of 30 years of innkeeping are often hilarious and often very touching!!
I love this place and will always stay there when I travel to the mountains!

Room Tip: Book early as they fill up quickly!

Staying with Colin and Raleigh is such a special experience.We have enjoyed their warmth and graciousness over the years. We have always especially loved having cocktails with them in different areas inside the house or their beautiful gardens. They have a flair for design and have decorated their home with lovely antiques and true elegance. Their wonderful breakfasts are different each day and have been much appreciated. We would highly recommend this B & B to anyone and look forward to our next visit.

Excellent in every respect. Owners Colin and Raleigh are great conversationalist who love learning about their guests. You will come away with great memories. The house itself is amazing. Make sure you also see their collection of porcelain and obelisks. The Waterford crystal chandelier in their great room is spectacular.

Our visit and stay at Highlands House was wonderful. The owners are so accommodating and welcoming, you feel like you're family! You have lots of privacy, with every opportunity to visit with the owners or other guests. The house is very clean, our room with a balcony was very comfortable, and the common areas, such as the living room are delightfully decorated and inviting. The breakfasts are delicious and served in a beautifully decorated dining room. Our experience was so relaxing and peaceful. The cocktails and conversations with the owners were very enjoyable. Their precious pet, Tallulah, and ours,Tulip, got along beautifully; the owners are really neat people who love people and pets! I don't ever want to stay in a hotel/motel again. We will return to Highlands and we will always stay at the Highlands House. This is a most exceptional place to stay in the Highlands area.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are clean and beautiful. Every room has a private bath. Every room has easy access...
