Rick and Helene were great hosts, they made us feel welcome. The back yard is beautiful and so relaxing sitting on the porch listening to the birds and watching the different kinds of birds feed. Our room # 7 was on the second floor and very nice. We went out hiking and came back to fresh baked cookies.The breakfast each day was wonderful. The 4 1/2 street Inn is walking distance to downtown Highlands but not directly downtown. This was more appealing to us, as the location was quiet but still convenient. Each room is decorated in it's own motif, and the sitting room was well stocked with games, books, and a brace of guitars. The weather was perfect, highs in the low 80's and lows in the low 60's. We slept with the windows open and it was wonderful after a heat index of 100+ in Florida. Overall a very pleasant experience.
