We have been here since 1986, providing a wonderful experience for couples, individuals and groups who are looking for a retreat to the mountains. We are in the Nantahala National Forest, a natural playground for hiking, waterfalls, golf, fishing, and relaxation.
We're about a 10 minute walk from Main Street, with sidewalks all the way to town.
When to Come Visit...
Open year 'round, each season provides a uniquely different reason to visit the Inn. Our most beautiful seasons are Summer and Fall.
In the Summer you are surrounded by blooming azaleas and rhododendrons and birds sing harmoniously from dawn til dusk. Highlands is the perfect escape from the heat. Just bring a light sweater and a rain jacket for refreshing nights and light rain showers. In Autumn the mountains are brilliant as the trees glow in shades of orange, red and gold. This is a beautiful time for a romantic getaway or for celebrating an anniversary. We also have fire places for when you want to cozy up with your beloved.
Our Gourmet Breakfast
As a special part of your stay, every morning we serve our delicious homemade breakfast with souffles and casseroles.
Join other guests in our coffee room, to socialize and sit by the fireplace, or enjoy the morning outside at our tables on the outside deck.
Or if you prefer, you may take trays back to your room and enjoy breakfast on your private balcony.
