With out a doubt one of the nicest Inns we have stayed at. Everything about the property brings one back to a more simple time of relaxing and just enjoying life. Try it you will see exactly what I'm referring to.

We are here with friends and really enjoyed our stay here. The spa is one of the best we've experienced in our worldwide travels. The massage therapist was able to work a kink out of my back that many others couldn't manage. The whirlpool also was a big help. It was nice to spend time in the quiet rooms. The...

My husband and I took a drive to Highlands and stopped at, Old Edwards Inn to have lunch. He had the steak and cheese sandwich and I had Madison's chicken salad. Both were delicious. For dessert we ordered the TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE!!! It was so good. The staff did a great job at helping us select the best dessert wine....

Old Edwards perfectly combines luxury with coziness. So instead of cool, modern furnishings and icy staff, like you get at many spas and resorts, this place is all old wood, comfy couches, warm decor, fireplaces and friendly people. The spa is worth every penny to relax, enjoy quiet time, and have lovely treatments. I enjoyed a trigger-point massage with Amber...

Old Edwards is a special place! The rooms are so pretty. We had a gas fireplace in our room which was wonderful on this very cold night. The staff is very nice. The spa was booked, so you need to plan ahead to go to the spa!

We stayed in the Lodge Cottages for a weekend to celebrate a birthday. We were treated as VIP guests from the moment we arrived. The resort is so amazing, the decor, accommodations, spa, etc... Highlands, NC is so beautiful, lots of cute shops, places to eat, and the surrounding trails and mountains. We absolutely loved our stay and plan to...

I rarely post reviews as I visit too many places. But this hotel and its staff deserves 6 stars. I did not experience a single weak link in their service. Amazing staff without exception, large comfortable suites, great food, and a beautiful little town full of pleasant surprises.

We tried to reserve a room two years ago but it was booked the entire time. This trip we booked a room at the Old Historic Inn in advance. It was exceptional! Dining in their Madison's was one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere! Highly recommend you stay at this place when you visit Highlands!

Like many of the recent reviewers, we were here for our anniversary. If you want a glitzy new hotel, look elsewhere. This is an old historic inn that offers an amazing celebration destination. The spa is great, the restaurant and those within walking distance of it are magnificent, and the aura of the hotel itself is quite enjoyable.
