My wife and I decided to go to Highlands after our daughter visited this past summer. We tried to stay at the same location where she stayed but it was booked. The Main Street Inn was recommended by a friend so we "took a chance". We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. You can never be sure if the pictures on the...

Location is ideal. Close to everything you need, but private enough to feel at ease. Southern hospitality. Breakfast is five stars. Excellent coffee. Manager and staff very kind. This is the real Highlands experience. Five stars.

This was our first visit to Highlands and we were very fortunate to stay at the Main Street Inn. This is a very charming house with tons of character. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were very clean. We will definitely be back to stay at the Main Street Inn.

My husband and I chose to stay at the Main Street Inn on a whim. We were coming in town for a wedding and figured location was the key as we probably wouldn't be in our room much! We made the perfect decision and will continue to stay there for future visits (especially if we bring the kids in the...

I recently stayed at the Main Street Inn for a friend's wedding. The service from all the staff was exceptional. This is a beautiful Inn located in a great area of Highlands, NC on Main Street close to shops, restaurants, etc. I look forward to staying there again on a future trip. Greg

My Wife and I have stayed at the Main Street Inn many times over the last five years. For the money, there is no better value in Highlands! The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food is excellent and the service is wonderful.

First i will say that I made a last minute reservation so I got what was left. The pictures on their site of the Guest house make it look like it has some trees around it so you might think it is secluded. Well it is actually in the parking lot. a parking lot that is extremely well lit through...

The innkeeper Sherry Owens gives her all to make your stay absolutely wonderful! The rooms are very comfortable with period furniture. The food is extraordinary in the Bistro with delightful filling breakfasts included in the price of the room. Outside or inside dining was available. Excellent location within walking distance of shops & restaurants. All employees go out of their...

Service was impeccable. Clean, beautiful, understanding people. Lost our room key and management drove from their home at 1130PM to give us a new one. They also provided us a ride to town when we needed to buy things for a wedding we were attending. Overall was very impressed!

This was my first time ever staying at anything but a true hotel/motel, so I have nothing to compare it to. I got in really late on a Sunday night and only stayed one night. There was nothing negative about the experience. Since I was a late arrival check in was "self serve" and I got my key and brought...
