From the time you check-in (with a glass of champagne) to the time you leave (with a Dove bar hopefully in hand) this inn is wonderful. The staff here is so well trained it is a joy to stay here. All the staff is friendly, attentive and helpful. The room we had was a suite and it was magnificent. Plenty of space including drawers and closet space. There was a microwave, fridge and coffee maker in our room. The place was spotless, not only the rooms but the gym, pool area and grounds. The sheets and towels were actually soft a nice surprise. This was our first stay in the area and if we return we will be coming back to OEI! We know we couldn't do better than this!

World class rooms, service and food. Played golf at Old Edwards Club....the front nine in no way prepares you for the extraordinary experience of the back nine. My wife enjoyed the Spa massage. The weather was perfect. Madison's food and service was excellent. The staff here are the best!!!!

Well, this is my fourth review of our beloved OEI - not to mention a few more of Madison's and the Club. Once again - the total experience was a WOW. As in previous reviews, I like to say thanks to the incredible people that make up this great place. I don't know what they do to find the Best of the Best, the Nicest of the Nicest. But I suspect it has a great deal to do with the ownership and management which every staff member speaks of with love and admiration. We were there last April and were anxious to stay in the new Falls Cottages which we did last week. Oh My Goodness - these new spaces are beyond compare, literally. We've visited many elegant hotels but nothing compares. The fabrics, trims, accessories, antiques - all beyond compare. The bed was divine (this from someone who only really loves her own bed). But what makes this place so perfect are the people - When we walked up on the Lodge porch to check in, Jack and Cody were standing out there and my cool autistic son ran up a couple paces ahead of me and both gentleman welcomed him with a big, "Hi Alex" and shook hands. Then they said to me that our suite was just gorgeous and that Alex would want to use his laptop more in the living room than in the bedroom due to reception (although both worked fine). Reading between the lines, you'll see my point is that they not only remembered Alex so well but that that he doesn't like to be separated from his laptop. We had the extreme fortune to interact with Caitlin at Art's at the Lodge almost every day at some point. She is an amazing person who made us feel like we'd known her for years. Also thanks to Wade, Julie, James, Patti, Sean (Madison's breakfast each morning). Also Karen in the Main Lobby - one of our favorites at OEI as she is so so kind to Alex.
Okay - I've gushed now. Just have to say, if you've never been to OEI....... What are you waiting for??? Oh, P.S. One of the highlights this time around was sitting around the new fireplace at the Falls pool talking to other guests (who all fell in love with Alex instantly). I think all the guests at OEI are so nice and kind because when you're being treated with such kindness, you just naturally adopt that same attitude. Love You, OEI !!!

Room Tip: Tell Julie in reservations what's important to you - she'll bend over backwards.

We just returned from a long weekend at the Old Edwards Inn and Spa in Highlands, N.C., and had a spectacular time as usual........If it were possible, I would rate our experience as "6 stars", as that is truly how wonderful it was. Incomparable staff and facilities, providing the most perfect retreat anyone could hope to have.

Room Tip: If possible , stay in the lodge rooms that are situated behind the historic inn building.....they are magnificent.
