Had a room on the first floor,had two beds. No complaints. Was concerned about no ac, but it was cool enough that it wasn't needed.The happy hour was great along with the breakfast. cookies are made fresh each day. Also the housekeeping was great as well. You won't be disappointed.

Staying at the 4 1/2 Street Inn greatly added to my wonderful experience in Highlands. Helene and Rick go out of their way to make one comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent and the comfort of the home is all anyone could wish for. I was in town by myself, working on an article and looking at homes there as well.Within... More

Helene and Ricky work extremely hard to make sure your stay in their home is comfortable and enjoyable. My wife and I spent two nights here while celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary in Highlands. The house is located in a very pristine mountain atmosphere. Ricky does a tremendous job taking care of all the large trees and other landscaping and... More

First time for us at this Bed & Breakfast but most everyone else we met the there had been there multiple times. That was obviously a good omen for us. Helene and Rick are gracious and charming hosts. The inn is beautifully and comfortably maintained. Lovely porches and grounds provide opportunities for solitude and relaxation. The 5:30 cocktail hour is... More

The 4 1/2 Street Inn defines the word charming. The Inn is a large country home sitting atop a hill just a few blocks from Main Street with a wrap around porch, deck for breakfast and happy hour and lush gardens with hammocks. The rooms are individually decorated and each has their own charm (there's that word again.) We celebrated... More

Sue and I stayed there two nights. If we return to Highlands we will stay here. The breakfast is very good. Wine from 5:30 to 7 p.m. was enjoyable. It has antiques and is run by a couple that have been doing it for 20 years. Do call well in advance because it is hard to get a room.

Nice B+B. Helene and Ricky were very hospitable, pleasant and gracious. Short drive to Main Street. There dinner recommendations were spot on. See other reviews of Wolfgangs, Meriage and Wild Tyme. Property needs some updating but generally nice. Ricky is in a community play in Sept. Hope someone goes to see and updates on their site.

I can only reiterate what others have said and add that the 4 1/2 Street Inn takes you to a peaceful place back in time where you will feel that you should disconnect from your devices and connect to nature. It is a real respite complete with the gracious hospitality of Helene and Rick providing a delightful array of food... More

Your review was so beautifully written, and describes all that I love about our property and gardens. I find the cool breezes and songs of cicidas at night magical and cannot imagined being lulled to sleep in any other way. Thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to write this review. Take care, Helene More

We love staying here! Comfortable, relaxing, wonderful location with very sweet and totally accomodating hosts, Helene and Rick...a step back in time, but close to town and wonderful mountain roads and scenery all around.

We have had so many guests on motorcycles and car clubs come and stay with us to enjoy these amazing roads. We are so happy you find our inn comfortable enough to return for the 3rd time, and we look forward to seeing you next time. Thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to write...
