Mountain getaway

We just returned from our second stay at the Old Edwards Inn Lodge cottages. We love the serenity and service at this resort and spent a whole day at their wonderful spa. I will definitely ask for the same cabin next time we visit.

oasis in the middle of Smoky Mountains

First stay at the Old Edwards Inn. Just looking for a weekend getaway and we found a perfect place in Highlands, NC. Beautiful scenery and wonderful specialty shops. Old Edwards Inn was everything we needed-perfect location, comfortable and spacious rooms and helpful staff. Would recommend this hotel to everyone and don't forget to try out the hotel restaurant before venturing to other food venues. Loved touring the grounds and the historic hotel. This will not be our last trip.

Fabulous mountain retreat

Over the top service and staff. Definitely a five star experience. Never felt so relaxed. Food was excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our party of four couples all loved this inn and will return.

This is an excellent property. It covers three city blocks in Highlands, NC. The staff is outstanding and helpful in every way. The spa is expensive. The food at Madison's is the best in Highlands and the price is a good value for a resort. We had dinner and breakfast at Madison's and really enjoyed the experience.

The Lakeside Restaurant was just average and very expensive. Madison's is a much better value.

Do not miss Madison's for dinner, but don't forget breakfast either. Pricey, but that is because of the quality of the food.

One of a Kind

My boyfriend's niece just got married in Highlands so my boyfriend and I, along with the bride, groom, and everyone who attended the wedding, stayed at the Inn. Everyone was great and the whole family was well taken care of. The rooms are beautiful and the staff could not be anymore accomodating. The wedding reception was held at the Farmhouse and it was beautiful. I would highly recommend the Inn as a wedding destination or for a nice getaway to a quiet little town.

Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. You could spend a day just browsing through all of the shops. Also, check out the beautiful waterfalls located within a short drive of the Inn.
