We chose Mitchell's because it is a long established business in Highlands. On this trip we had our grandson and my goodness, it was such a treat! Just the right amount of vintage mountain lodge charm and close proximity to town. Having known of this place and knowing friends and relatives who stayed here, it was an easy choice. Nice... More

My wife and I decided to escape the Florida summer heat by taking a trip to the NC Mountains. We stayed at a really nice little place called Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages which has been there for many years. We stayed in a second floor lodge unit which offered a generous King size Bed, a couch in front of a... More

The room was there standard room with high ceilings, wood paneling and two high double beds. The bathrooms were small, especially for this big boy, but I would stay in this room again. For a...

Room was very clean, but not a relaxing place to stay...uncomfortable beds makes sleeping difficult. Plus, property surrounded on 2 sides by roads, so there was lots of road noise...not a peaceful mountain setting.

I chose Mitchell's because of the proximity to downtown retail shops and restaurants and the reasonable rates. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating, the guestroom was modest but comfortable, and the lodge grounds were very well maintained and beautiful. I look forward to staying there again.

We stayed in a cabin. all the furniture was old, in crappy condition and out dated. I wouldn't sit on the couch. The beds were cheap and creaky. It was with a 30 year old mattress or just a cheap mattress. The sheets were old scratchy polyester. It was like sleeping in your grandmothers dusty old basement,

I have stayed in all of the top hotels in Highlands over the past 10 years. This time I was looking for a more rustic setting, but within an easy walk to Main Street. I stayed in the King Kichen Suite and absolutely loved it. Rocking Chairs at the front door and back Deck and the Pavillion was great. My... More

We came to Highlands for the weekend so my husband could ride in the Tour of Cashiers on Saturday. We spent 2 nights in the King/kitchen suite. It was very clean and pleasant, nothing fancy. It looks and feels like you're in a cabin in the woods - wood panelled walls, adirondack furniture, etc. We loved the hot tub [great... More
