We thoroughly enjoyed our room at Mitchell's. It had everything you would want for a weekend getaway, with lodge like touches. The room was roomy, with a fridge, microwave, fire place, coffee pot and huge balcony with rockers. It felt like a small cabin but was one of the lodge rooms. The staff at Mitchell's truly seem to enjoy the... More

We booked the Oak cabin for 3 nights during the week to relax and explore the area. It was perfect in every way for us. Weather for us was great as it was 90+ back home and high humidity and in Highlands we left the windows open in the cabin and did not run the a/c in the car while... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages. Our cottages are perfect for larger families, or friends that would rather lodge together. Highlands is the perfect location to escape from the summer heat. That's why all our units include windows to enjoy the cool, fresh mountain air. Our staff is always amazing as well. We want...

We bring 10 people to highlands every year at this time for work. We have stayed here for the past 11 years and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. The staff treat us like friends and the accommodations feel like rustic North Carolina. I read a few of the poor reviews of Mitchell's and totally disagree. This is not the... More

Our room was very clean with a mini kitchen and bathtub in the same area. I thought the location of the tub a bit strange. We had a lovely patio off the kitchen. The location of the room faced the highway so it was quite noisy at times. The staff was very nice and helpful.

What a great property with so much to explore with young children (boys, ages 3 & 5). We arrived Friday and stayed thru Monday. We stayed in one of the cottages, which was 2 bedroom, one bath and full kitchen. Great porch with swing, rocking chairs and a picnic table. Loved the pond, ducks, fish, babbling brook, breakfast in the... More

We thought we were only staying for one night. Upstairs in the lodge. Fireplace, nice balcony, totally cozy! Loved it so much, we decided to stay another night. We were moved downstairs - and we loved this room even more!!

We didn't have a reservation when we arrived in Highlands Friday evening. We were able to get a room at Mitchell's for Friday and Saturday, although we had to change rooms because we were last minute and the room from Friday was already booked for Saturday. We loved both rooms (just 3 doors down). Each had its own setup, both... More

The rooms were clean and adequately furnished. The staff could not have been nicer - so pleasant to deal with. The rooms were noisy since we had windows open. We stayed in the Cedar Lodge. Route 106 had a lot of traffic (noise). It is a very short distance to town but walking on either road is difficult (no sidewalks).... More

We had a wonderful three day weekend stay recently at Mitchells. We stayed in the Cedar Lodge and enjoyed a beautiful clean king-size Suite with porch with two rocking chairs overlooking a small Mountain stream. The room had a gas-burning fireplace which we did not use as the temps were still very warm in August. The Furnishings were very Charming... More
