Awesome! Private, secluded, great mountian views, great food, wonderful staff. Great get-a-way for a romantic few days or longer. Close to the Highlands offering shopping and good restuants as well. Great place for hiking!

This was our third rejuvenating visit to Fire Mountain Inn. This time we stayed in one of the cabins, having stayed at the inn previously. No TV, no phones, no worries. I actually read 2 actual non-electronic books while I was there. When did life get so crazy??? Hiram and Mathew are superb hosts. Since our last visit, FMI has...

I can hardly find the correct words to describe the recent visit my husband and I had this past week @ Fire Mountain. Of course, the scenery is second to none with beautiful mountain vistas, wooded walking trails, autumn colors in the trees. But also the ambience @ Fire Mountain itself is also second to none. As quiet and relaxing...

Fire Mountain Inn was restful, immaculate and included beautiful mountain vistas. The weather was gorgeous and fall colors were near peak all three days of our visit. The inn room in which we stayed was small but adequate. Breakfasts were quite delicious and served each morning by the innkeepers. We regret that dinners were not served on the evenings of...

This was a wonderful 4 days of resting and renewal. Hiram and Mathew are gracious and helpful hosts who spent a good bit of time sharing insights, maps, information and helping us plan hikes, restaurants, and general exploring. The dinner they host is amazing. The food is delicious and well worth spending an evening on site, beginning with drinks, conversation,...

I brought a big group here (three adults, three kids) and stayed in the Hemlock cabin. The cabin was great - slept us all comfortably, had a nice deck with a little hot-tub, and had a functional kitchen with plenty of utensils, plates, pots, etc. The cabin looked as if it had been freshened up recently with a new floor...

It's easy to find a nice bed and breakfast, but it is the warmth and expertise of Hiram and Mathew the owners that make the difference at Fire Mountain. Every detail has been thought of to ensure you want for nothing. The food is wonderful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the views are fantastic and Hiram and Mathew make...
