My now husband and I spent our first visit together at Mitchell's. The two things I liked about it was the large bathtub and it's proximity/walking distance to the town of Highlands. We visited in July 2010.

Great price, nice staff, very clean. Bed was a little on the soft side, but I can live with that. Convenient to town. I am in the area for business and will stay here again. Make a winter trip to the area, the prices are right.

The staff members were extremely friendly (and knowledgeable; a little more on this in the next paragraph). The rooms and bathroom were clean and well maintained. The cottage that we stayed in had a rustic, warm feel to it with the knotty pine sidings and a gas fireplace. There was a TV in the sitting area and a TV in...

This was our first stay at Mitchell's and we're already planning to make it a Thanksgiving weekend tradition. The room was much more than we expected, and the staff go out of their way to make it a positive experience. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at Mitchell's Lodge the first weekend in November. While it is not in the downtown area, it was a very short walk. If you go out the back way, there is only about a 50ft stretch where there is no sidewalk. The staff was very friendly and helpful and showed us the best places to hike and eat....

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages. Our location is not directly on Main Street, however during the seasonal months, it is fairly nice to be away from the congestion of the crowded roads. We are only 2 1/2 blocks from Main Street. One of the main importances of Mitchell's is to make...

Well, the place is nice. We stayed in one of the pet friendly cabins a Saturday night. As its a 2 night policy I overseen that is was so expensive. We were also charged $50+tax for the 2 dogs we brought with us which made the price expensive. That was n''t the biggest issue. Not only at that pet fees...

Thank you for the review. We apologize for the inconveniences you had during your stay with us. With having much competition in the Highlands' area, Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages keeps their rates exceptionally low but also at a competitive level. Not many lodging in the area has cottages like we do, and is also pet friendly. We do require a...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Lodge while visiting family, celebrating our 43rd anniversary, and taking in the beautiful scenery. The staff were extremely kind and generous. We stayed in the Log Lodge while there. The accommodations were comfortable, warm , very clean and cozy. We had hoped to stay in the Cedar Lodge section because they...

Mitchell's is rustic and quaint and perfectly situated close enough to town to walk, but away from the hustle and bustle (not that there is a lot of that in Highlands, but it's nice not to be on the main road). We began staying here when we had very little money just starting out of college. We could not have...

We had a very enjoyable stay at Mitchell's Lodge. It's right off the main shopping area with plenty of restaurants nearby. We ate at a different place each night.
