Beautiful little place out in the middle of nowhere! The landscaping was beautiful and the rooms were very pretty and rustic. Here's our list of pros and cons... Pros: wonderful wine and appetizers at social hour, delicious breakfast, beautiful scenery. Cons: Mattress wasn't very comfortable, AC is a wall unit and we could never get the room very cool, window... More

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Half-Mile Farm, including the food at breakfast and social hour which always seems to be a guest favorite (thank you, Chef Jason!). It is true that a three-minute drive into Highlands can seem like a long way since many of the inns are located right in the downtown area. Guests... More

Having stayed at Old Edwards a number of times, we decided to mix it up and stay at the Half Mile Farm. I am so glad we did! We still did a day at the Old Edwards spa and were able to use the amenities, but we were able to gain such an amazing sense of peace and tranquility that... More

There are no bell man or help to your room. However the front desk woman helped me but I felt bad asking her to help me. Also there are canoes for the pond but I was alone so couldn't turn them over to put in pond to enjoy. Also there is only breakfast so you have to get in your... More

We stayed at a cabin at Half Mile farm for one night. We asked to move to a courtyard room the next day. They graciously complied and we were so happy with the change.

First visit to Half Mile Farm and the grounds are quite lovely. We stayed at the end of June for husband's birthday. The main Inn was sold out so we stayed in the Blacksmith Cabin.

This is a great escape. The grounds were wonderful and the room was awesome. We enjoyed walking the gardens and sitting by the pond just relaxing. This is not like the run of the mill B&B.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For guests of age 18 and over, Half-Mile Farm is that place where you relax as soon as you drive onto the property. A hilly expanse of green lawn welcomes you, and the main historic farmhouse reveals itself at the crest. Along the drive, Apple Lake glistens and offers canoes along its shore for guests to enjoy a soothing paddle. A chef-prepared breakfast begins each day for every guest, and evenings bring complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft beverages to enjoy with other guests or to take to your own little corner of the farm. A seasonal outdoor heated pool, grape arbor, vegetable garden and apple trees all cascade along the grounds. ... more   less
