This is by far the nicest place to stay in highlands and one of our favorite . We come to highlands to enjoy the waterfalls , hike, and have nice dinners after a full day of outdoor activities. The hotel is beautiful with all of the natural outdoor beauty you can imagine surrounding and on the property and pool. The heated pool is salt water and feels amazing. The staff are very attentive. You will know you are in a wonderful hotel when upon arrival you are offered champagne , bottled water, and chocolate ice cream bars for the children. The bathroom has marble floors that are heated and even in the summer this feels cozy when you wake up in the morning. The rooms are all a little different but all very nice. Upon turndown service , fresh cookies were delivered nightly and slippers are laid out. My husband was expecting a fax from work and the staff brought it right up to the room. You will feel you have privacy and relaxation here. This is a very special place and one that you will vacation in and come back relaxed and refreshed.

Room Tip: We love the rooms that are close to the pools.we have only stayed in the lodge and fall cottages and love both!

Very well written! If I didn't know about Old Edwards, this would definitely make me want to stay there. You managed to capture the essence and "tell a story" with your writing, which is a great talent. Thank you so much for writing about Old Edwards on TripAdvisor. We hope to see you back soon!

Outstanding service and well appointed rooms. Enjoyed Madison's for great dining and the server Maxine was super. We have already booked a return trip. The spa was great, they have thought of everything.

Old Edwards Inn (OEI) knows how to make relaxation even more enjoyable! The property is expansive offering multiple options from simple rooms to large home type accommodations. Beautiful public areas, awesome spa, fully equipped gym, pools, very good restaurant and lovely outdoor bar makes this the top luxury choice for a mountain getaway. Service is also spot on. Location is central to the Highlands village so put your car away and enjoy a walking weekend! Highly recommend all aspects of the hotel. Pricey...but worth it!

We go once a year to this spa at the end of a month in Highlands and each year it is an all day treat! One of the best Spa's in the country truly, it is peaceful and quiet. Now if only the occasional selfish guest would just please... please leave your "smart phone" in your locker or even at home.
You are not nearly as important as this spa is a peaceful opportunity for others!!
Don't be "that guest"!!

We're glad to hear that you continue to visit the spa every year and that it continues to enhance your visit to Highlands. We also appreciate your advice to guests to leave the phones alone when coming to relax. We try to enforce that to the degree possible, and we will have a look at what more we might be able to do to maintain the blissful silence in the spa. We look forward to next year's visit!

Absolutely incredible place to stay. A beautiful hotel, with amazing service, in a gorgeous part of North Carolina. It's a classic hotel, with hard wood floors, libraries you can just relax in and/or have a drink, a great spa to boot. Wonderful restaurant as well. Will be going back, repeatedly. Recommend, recommend, recommend.
