Idyllic! I spent a long weekend at the Old Edwards Inn and Spa on a mother-daughter trip and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! The service from the staff was impeccable – greeted with warm, friendly smiles and handed a glass of chilled champagne upon check-in. Classy! The layout of the grounds where we stayed offers guests their own cottage, private entrance, with a cozy porch to enjoy and relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of your favorite beverage. The room itself was clean and orderly with a comfortable bed and fresh linens; although in the summer, only as a suggestion, you might consider requesting the feather bed on top of the mattress be left off because it became too hot for sleeping. The bathroom was elegant with a marble finish and roomy enough for two people to get ready in without overcrowding one another. The shower/tub was marvelous with luxurious bath products. And, the floors were heated; which would be terrific in the winter! The property is situated in the heart of charming downtown Highlands; just a leisurely walk to delightful restaurants, stylish boutiques, and awesome outfitters. We ran out of time but next occasion, we plan to schedule an appointment at their top-rated spa. You won’t be disappointed!
