Great place to stay. Comfortable, great staff and great food. Only complaint would be they could use a larger common area if guests want to read books or play games.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

My husband and I met my parents for the weekend at this lovely and charming Inn last weekend. We had no expectations and were more than pleasantly surprised at the rooms, the grounds and the wonderful staff. What a beautiful place to get away from it all. I had called earlier to ask if they would have almond or soy milk since I have a dairy allergy. I was assured they would and left it at that. When we checked in, the chef, Jason, sought us out and asked me several questions about my allergy and proceeded to make special appetizers and meals that I could eat. I felt so well cared for and it made me appreciate this beautiful inn even more. Thank you to all of the staff for a wonderful weekend. We cannot wait to come back!

My wife and I stayed at The Inn at Half-Mile Farm over the July 4th weekend. It was our first time to visit the amazing bed and breakfast, but it definitely won't be our last! We stayed in room #2 in the main house. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. AMAZING breakfast both mornings. Skip the high end hotels and enjoy this amazing gem five minutes out of town. It's the little things like the cocktail hour with beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres each evening or the 24 hours access to free waters, sodas and snacks that put this over the top.

This place is the best. Scenic quiet tranquil. Best service ever - and the breakfast was fabulous. The room was so spacious and to be able to sleep with the windows open in July was heaven. The pond and ability to fish was an added bonus! And they are fur friendly-

We stayed in room 18 and it was absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The food was fantastic starting with checking in with the great homemade cookies, the afternoon wine and appetizers. We can't say enough about the gourmet breakfast. The staff and the owner was great and so friendly. We are already telling everybody about what a great place and we will definitely go back. Thanks for making our stay so great!!!!

Spent an evening at the Inn at Half Mile Farm, this lovely inn is a must visit if you are ever in Highlands, NC. Beautiful grounds with shimmering ponds, Civil War history, Amazing staff and wonderful breakfasts.
This beautiful inn and the adjacent cabins feel like home in the mountains! My husband and I visited Highlands, my childhood hometown, to meet my cousins for a family gathering. We decided to come a few days early to enjoy the spring weather and chose the Inn at Half Mile Farm after reading the excellent TA reviews and looking at the pictures which reminded me of my grandparents' house. From the moment we drove down the driveway and up to the house, we knew we had made a great decision. The yard was gorgeous, the porch wide and welcoming, and Carol's welcome warm and genuine. She gave us a quick tour of the main house and we were then shown our rental, Lamon's Cabin. The cabin, which can be rented with the larger adjacent cabins to form a three bedroom home, was just right for two. We loved the clawfoot tub in the big bathroom and all the comfortable touches, including fridge and microwave hidden from view to preserve the rustic cabin decor. Unfortunately, my husband became ill shortly after we arrived and we spent part of the first night at the ER (good reviews for the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital!). When Carol learned of our plight, she couldn't have been more helpful, even helping us find an open drugstore "down the mountain." Chef Jason, Innkeeper Kate, and Carol were so kind, and we enjoyed their fellowship and hospitality. Of note, the Inn serves an absolutely scrumptious breakfast and wonderful late afternoon hors d'oeuvres and wine. Everything we ate was beautifully presented and delicious. Kate even sent my husband's breakfast back to the cabin with me when he didn't feel like coming to the dining room on the second morning. It is hard to create a new and unique review after so many other positive ones have been posted, but this is really an extraordinary spot in Highlands. The location is close enough to town to make shopping/sightseeing convenient, but you really feel like you are in your own mountain niche when you are on the property. There are the comforts of a bed and breakfast with the feel of a fine hotel, more accurately a laid-back fine hotel! The flowers, the sound of the creek, the sun reflecting on the pond... absolutely perfect! Thank you for a great stay. I hope we can return soon.
"What a gem in the mountains"

Cannot say enough about this property. Great location, 5 minutes from town, great layout for everything from just relaxing and reading a good book to fishing, canoeing, hiking, swimming and, of course, shopping in town. The staff and owner were wonderful and very helpful and Jason, the chef, prepares a most unique gourmet breakfast each day. The rooms are very spacious as are the baths. Our room had a king bed, 2 lounge chairs, a fireplace, and a deck. The bath had a whirlpool tub, a nice size stand alone shower and many extras which showed a lot of thought. Being a B & B, you must unload and transport your luggage which could be an issue if steps are involved. There is no question that we would again make this our selection in the Highlands area.
"Still our favorite getaway!"

We were given a fantastic opportunity for a spontaneous Memorial Day weekend at our favorite get away in Highlands....The Inn at Half Mile Farm. We have been going to this inn since it opened and going to Highlands means going to TIAHMF. We are treated like family and just like at Granny's, there are always cookies in the cookie jar! Jason's breakfasts are always delicious (and so big!) we don't eat again until hors d'oeuvres before dinner. If we get the munchies, there are always soft drinks, water and snacks at the snack bar. The gracious hospitality, impeccable service and overall casual atmosphere makes for a very relaxing place to stay. The staff is wonderful but not pretentious...it's a jeans kind of place! Sleep late, then a gourmet breakfast followed by a reading session while rocking on the front porch overlooking the lake, and back to a clean and made-up room! My kind of place! Thanks, Kate, Vivian, Donna, Jason, Wendy and the "cleaning fairy" whom we never see!

A beautiful inn that feels like a remote mountain retreat, but it's just outside the town of Highlands. We would definitely stay here again! Excellent service, immaculate rooms, and so comfortable! Exactly what we were hoping to find to decompress and relax in the mountains.
"Fantastic mountain location & a very relaxing stay!"

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Half Mile Farm for a great weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It was a surprisingly short drive from Atlanta! The property is immaculate and situated on a beautiful mountain pond. The room was fantastic, comfortable and very private. We left the balcony door open so we could hear the birds and had the fireplace on to take the morning chill out of the air. Jason and the team there are just fantastic! The breakfast is so good you need to get in a hike in to work it off. We prefer staying here to staying in town. This is the quiet mountain experience we were looking for, but it is less than 5 min drive in town for great shopping /dinner.
