The Chandler Inn was a great place to stay for a night in Highlands. Clean, well-run, convenient access to Main Street, and run by such nice people. The breakfast in the morning is delicious too! It has a quaint, mountain atmosphere that makes you feel like you are living the Highlands lifestyle.

Highlands is a pretty expensive place to stay, and The Chandler Inn is no exception, although more reasonably priced than some.

On arrival I was a bit disappointed that it looked nowhere near as nice as on the website and had an extremely rustic feel – a little too rustic for my tastes. Our room was nice enough, but very dated and pretty typical of a North Carolina mountain cabin i.e. not particularly modern, lots of wood paneling, basic fittings, etc. Definitely not a bad thing, but not what I was expecting at the price we paid. The air conditioning unit was a window mounted one and heating was through some rusted vents on the floor, which didn’t look particularly nice, but were very efficient. There was also a nice gas-log style fire, which didn’t add much to the heat element of things, but did add a nice ambience to the room.

The bathroom was also quite dated, but clean and with lots of hot water. There was a fridge but no coffee facilities provided in the room.

The inn is about 10 minutes easy walk into the main town and the path is reasonably well lit, if returning in the dark, although we were glad we also had a torch.

Breakfast the next morning was nice enough – freshly cooked sweet soufflé and egg dish with lots of other things to choose from, good coffee and nice orange juice. Shame about the styrofoam plates and cups and plastic cutlery – not at all what I was expecting! The dining area is also extremely small and seats around 6 or 7 people at a push, so goodness knows what would happen if everyone arrived for breakfast at once! There is some nice outside seating too, but it wasn’t really the weather for sitting outside.

Overall we had a nice stay, but considering the price I don’t think I’d rush back. I think it is probably a nicer to stay in the summer months as there are plenty of nice little nooks and outdoor areas to sit, and strolling into town would be nicer also.

Some friends of ours stumbled on this B&B last year on their annisversary and insisted we make a trip. We visited this past weekend and absolutely enjoyed it. It was a much needed getaway! The rooms are quaint and cozy - perfect for a place to lay your head. We didn't spend much time in the rooms - we wanted to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the great outdoors and this was perfect! The atmosphere is simply breathtaking! All the rooms are decorated differently and set up differently but all were very clean and comfortable. The garden patios were set up nicely with rocking chairs and swings. The breakfast was perfect! We were not restrained to any time limits so we leisurely got up and got ready for breakfast around 8:30. Breakfast was available on the patio and brought to us as we enjoyed the fresh air and coffee. We weren't getting away to find a place with wifi or fancy china for breakfast, we wanted to getaway and relax and enjoy God's beauty and that's exactly what we got at the Chandler Inn! The breakfast was great and would have tasted the same if served on china. The owners were very pleasant and was very gracious to help accomodate us with anything we needed. Planning our next trip already!

My husband and I love this place so much. We stumbled upon it last year looking for a cozy get-a-way near the charming town of Highlands NC. Now, we go back as often as we can. It's quaint, cozy but with all the amenities of home. It's perfect for couples who want the bed and breakfast experience but with privacy. Plus, the breakfast is far from the ordinary and is always delicious. You have to visit to truly understand how amazing this place is.

My husband and I were in Highlands for a wedding and stayed at the Inn.It is very charming and the breakfast was wonderful!! Very laid back and peaceful.Rooms were extremely clean and cozy.Every room has its own private entrance.We stayed in a king room that was quite large and had a TV and sofa. The rooms also have a small fridge and microwave.We hated to leave but we will return again!
