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...

My husband and I spent our first summer holiday here, were married here and had our second and fifth anniversary here. We love the mix of classic and contemporary. Pure white linens and excellent food. Friendly staff make you feel so welcome every time.

We've stayed at the Main Street Inn in the past and were thrilled to bring our friends with us this time around. We loved sitting by the fire with wine and snacks! I would highly recommend the Main Street Inn for any couples weekend get away!

Sherry was great, the location was great and the room was great! We enjoyed sitting by the fire with a glass of wine in the evening. The inn is beautiful and we would definitely stay here the next time we go to Highlands.

The staff cordial and courteous and the location was within walking distance of everything. Breakfast delicious. The big drawback is that room #8 is not large enough for one person and impossible for two people. The closet was inadequate so we had to use the only place to sit(besides the bed) to put our clothes. I suggest you join room...

I'm old and tired and just want to be left alone. I dislike social media. So, why am I here? Because, once in a great while, you experience a place so wondrous that it compels you to shout its praises from a mountaintop. However, since mountaintops are thinly populated, my compulsion has led me, reluctantly, to this cite. The gem...

Great breakfast and location but we stayed in guest house which has tiny rooms and was disappointing for the price. The rooms had window units in the guest house ors wasn't cooling but weather was mild so wasn't a problem.

Spent 3 nights and wanted to stay longer. Great location, with easy walking distance to restaurants and shops of Highlands, and access to some of the most beautiful roads in the region. We traveled by motorcycle throughout the area, but really enjoyed returning to the Inn after a long day's ride. Our room was spotless and fresh every day, soft...
