A major part of our decision to return to Highlands this summer after two years was to stay at 4-1/2 Street Inn. We have loved visiting Highlands for many years but finding this wonderful place and experiencing the pampering of Helene and Rick made our visits truly memorable. Words fall short in trying to convey how enjoyable the total experience... More

Staying at the 4 1/2 Street Inn is always a really nice experience. Very homey and comfortable. Helene makes her breakfast yummy and with special attention to favorites - like the pineapple casserole. Delicious! The Inn is within walking distance to downtown Highlands. Wonderful restaurants and shopping. Try the Highlands Playhouse. Enjoy your stay! Willy

It is always nice to see you. The Highlands Playhouse has great musicals, and now shows movies too. It is great to walk to town, and back, especially after a big dinner. Thank you for the kind words and taking the time to write this review. We look forward to your next visit. Take care, Ricky & Helene. More

Surrounding Highlands are spectacular water falls, hiking, lakes, fishing, and shopping for art. But what brings us back time and again to 4 1/2 Street Inn is the amazing hospitality with personal attention! Those outstanding breakfasts served on the deck while sitting near the fresh homegrown herbs and vegetables; their sweet and polite dog, Jake, watching for a fallen morsel;... More

Cannot recommend this wonderful place highly enough! My suggestion is to use the word 'Heaven' some how in the name, as had a truly Heavenly experience. Absolute peace, beauty, lovely gardens, ultimate comfort, fantastic breakfasts each morning. Every detail of the way each suite is appointed has been created with Elegance and Warmth, extremely welcoming. The hosts, Helene and Rick,... More

Lovely and comfortable! My husband and I really enjoyed the convenience of being able to walk to downtown Highlands for dinner and exploration while staying at this friendly bed and breakfast. The owners were very helpful - made dinner reservations for us and provided celebratory champagne our first night.

The Inn's rooms are quaint and cozy and quiet. The food prepared there is delicious.
