If you have never tried the B&B experience you should make your first reservation here. However, it may spoil you for others. What makes a B&B a place to enjoy? It has to have a great location - check. It has to have thoughtful, considerate, warm owners - check. It has to have outgoing, interesting guests - check. It has...

The Inn's rooms are quaint and cozy and quiet. The food prepared there is delicious. And Highlands is a beautiful town high up in the mountains for walking, hiking, shopping, being lazy around the Inn, and don't miss the sunset hike to Sunset Rock; it is fantastic.We love this Inn for its atmosphere and ambiance and quiet location, and it...

4 1/2 Street Inn is absolutely my favorite place to stay! Rick and Helene are wonderful through and through. They're welcoming, friendly and just about the most genuine people I've met.

We have been staying here for years - it's a beautiful house that is very relaxing and peaceful. I've never slept better; it's a very comfortable environment with great furnishings. The hosts are amazing and make you feel right at home, and I can't get enough of the food - specifically the cheese grits.

I've stayed in many B&Bs over the last 15 years, both in the Southeast and the Pacific Northwest. Hands down, of them all, the 4-1/2 Street Inn is still my favorite!

Seemed a bit overpriced, but lovely staff. Enjoyed the evening munchies/social. I can't for the life of me understand why bed and breakfasts don't update their bedding....seems like a very inexpensive update, but other than that, I was very impressed.

Once again we enjoyed an amazing getaway to Highlands, NC and the 4 1/2 Street Inn. The Inn is the perfect place for rest and relaxation. So nice to be able to walk to all the restaurants in town. As always Rick and Helene were wonderful hosts. If you're looking for someplace to stay in Highlands look no further.
