“Cute Victorian B&B with a great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

My teenage daughters and I stayed here for two nights on spring break. We had room 1 which has a king size bed and a day bed. Perfect for the three of us. The room was lovely with Victorian charm used to accommodate your every need. The ensuite bathroom was small but had lots of storage space and the shower had nice pressure. Breakfast was wonderful. Homemade apple cake with fresh fruit and nutmeg sprinkled yogurt to start followed by scrambled eggs, bacon and a warm croissant. Perfect for the apple butter. After our first breakfast they noticed my older daughter did not eat her eggs. She does not like them. They offered her something else for the second day. This was a very nice accommodation especially since they prepare food for 12 rooms. They have several cats. "Little Girl" ran right up to me at breakfast and jumped in my lap. another kitty greeted us one night after dinner for a cuddle before bed. The Inn is with in easy walking distance of the downtown. Would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

My wife and I have been going to Highlawn off and on for years, since we were first married -- it's a great getaway spot only a short drive from Washington, DC. We've stayed in a number of different rooms within the main house, and have also taken a nearby cottage with friends which they manage. The owners, Sandy and Tim, have always been gracious hosts, and put on a delicious weekend brunch. Take the Roman baths and massages at The Berkeley Springs State Park spa house, and enjoy the shops and restaurants in town,only a short walk down the hill!

I love to visit Highlawn and from my first visit in 1986 until my most recent, the constant care and devotion Sandy showers on her guests is the most memorable. She and all of the Highlawn Staff, generously and warmly look out for your comfort and total relaxation. A generous and glorious buffet greets your each morning, plenty of choices and the charm of a tearoom setting. The rooms are each uniquely decorated and appointed with fine linens, fragrant amenities and spotless care. Please, visit soon and enjoy a retreat in the historic town of Berkeley Springs. With nearby antiques, art and wineries as well as spas, you will have a marvelous time!

Sandy, her staff and the cats are the best. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. We stayed in the Parlor room which was in an adjoining house. Very nice with a jacuzzi as well. Since the spring water runs throughout the town we had a spa in our room. The breakfast is outstanding. Even after doing this for 20+ years Sandy knows how to keep it fresh.

This was our first visit to Highlawn Inn. We chose to spend our anniversary weekend there after reading several good reviews. We certainly made the right choice! We arrived in the snow and Sandy and her staff could not have done more to make us comfortable. They even cleaned the snow off of our car!! It was wonderful to sit and warm by the fire and enjoy the company of the resident cats. We stayed in the main house in Algernon Room and it was beautiful as well as comfortable. This gorgeous Victorian home is very clean, well kept and interesting. We really enjoyed the dinner with the winemaker as well as the scrumptious breakfasts that Sandy painstakingly prepares to perfection. We really felt right at home and feel like we made new friends while we were there.

Room Tip: Algernon Room is bright and sunny with lots of windows and a nice sitting area. There is also a sepa...

I have been going to Berkeley Springs for a number of years staying at various places (starting with Coolfant). I would see brochures about Highlawn Inn and was curious, but didn't think a b&b was for me. Was I wrong! This past December, I changed my plans (the inn was closed for part of the month) so I could stay there. It was wonderful. Sandy was a perfect hostess and serves the best breakfasts in town and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant. It is helpful if you like cats and if steep hills scare you, make sure you get alternate directions to the Inn.

I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: While the rooms in the main inn are lovely, you should check out the accommodations in the additiona...

We have been frequent guests at the Highlawn—we have been going for over fifteen years. Sandy and Tim are wonderful hosts and the cats are adorable:) The atmosphere is relaxing and quiet and the breakfasts are "to die for." To us it feels like a home away from home. We highly recommend the Highlawn to anyone who desires a relaxing stay in a small artsy town.
