We were in town for a dear friend's wedding. This inn was one of a few suggested by the bride & groom. The location was perfect, right in the midst of the downtown area ... walking distance to all the shops, bars and restaurants. The room was simple, but had everything we needed as we weren't going to spend much...

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.

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!
