“Nice people, Budget accommodations,”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The rooms are nice -not great. The main positive for the inn is the close proximity to town. This is good because we had to go to town every morning we were here to get coffee. The owners are not early risers. Breakfast is served on styrofoam p,ages with plastic utensils. The food was pretty much the same each day. A blueberry French toast that was overly sweet and didn't taste like blueberries, a bland egg soufflé and an overly sweet baked oatmeal. Good news is they have cereal and English muffins -definitely the way to go. Wifi is very poor and not accessible from most rooms. But for many people that isn't an issue. If it is an issue, make sure you get a room close to the office.

Randy and Leti are very nice people. This just wasn't the get away We were looking for.

Chandler Inn was our haven while visiting Highlands, NC. Our room was clean, comfortable, well appointed and very cozy. The remote controlled fireplace was nice touch. We had a king size bed in one room and a double in the main room where fireplace was located. The breakfast was splendid. Short stroll to main St. Just first rate accommodations, breakfast and hosts. Randy and Letty Power were top-flight hosts. Enjoy your stay.

Room wonderful and clean. Randy made us feel welcome. But be prepared for hwy noise if you sit outside. Inside not so bad. Beautiful setting. Easy one half mile walk to Main street. Breakfast at 8:30 was delicious but had to go to town for coffee at 7:30. No coffee or breakfast before 8:30.

Room Tip: there are two rooms on the back side of the Inn. They are quieter.

A group of us stayed at the Chandler for a wedding in late June. Highlands is a spectacular area and we could not have been more pleased with the quaint and convenient Chandler Inn. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owners and staff are friendly and extremely helpful for 1st time visitors to the area. Breakfasts are delicious! Thanks for a great visit.

I found this place on-line while searching for a nice spot where my wife and I could observe our 56th wedding anniversary. Owner Randy up-graded us to a suite close to the parking area to make it more accessible for my wife, a cancer patient. Complete with kitchen, sitting room with remote gas fireplace and TV, king bed with luxurious Sealy Ultra Plush mattress, and well-appointed shower and dressing area--all convenient to downtown restaurants, shops, galleries, and the playhouse, where we got into opening night of "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story." And the sumptuous breakfasts served by Leta--baked souffles and French toast--were superb. Private entrance to each facility. All of it at a very reasonable rate. Going to Highlands? Make it The Chandler Inn. No regrets.

This rather European establishment is nestled in an amazing rain forest replete with luxurious flowery plants. There are several areas where one can simply sit outside in the shade and read a book or have a quiet conversation with another guest or companion. Each room seems to belong to a separate establishment. Great modern flat screen TV does not detract from the affluent bedding and big fluffy bath towels. The entire room was immaculate; the bed really comfy.
WE also appreciated suggestions about restaurants as we were new to the area. Both restaurants the owners recommended were high quality!! Also, they actually arranged for us to go to one restaurant when it had a cancellation(unusual event in the town).
Breakfast is so special here. Individual quiches, baked sweet toasts and cereals, good coffee with plenty of cream all contribute to a hotel which really cares what the patrons need.

This was the third time we have been at the Chandler Inn in Highlands. As always it was outstanding from signing in to signing out. Breakfast was great and room was clean, comfortable and very private. The host provides information of the area and treats everyone as thier personal friend and house quest! Thanks for a great week end "Up there!"
