“Very attentive staff”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Fire Mountain is definitely the most unique place I have ever stayed. You are truly away from it all. By far the most positive comment I can make is about the staff. Everyone we came in contact with, specifically Matt, went out of their way to ensure we were having an enjoyable stay. Customer service is top notch here. The breakfasts each day were excellent and the view was remarkable. If you are looking to recharge your batteries and be pampered this is definitely the place to make it happen.

I believe that the best and most complete thing I can say about Fire Mountain and THIS STAY is that they are DEPENDABLE. I’m a multi-repeat visitor, and I’ve posted high praise before.

An earlier posting is at http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g49215-d262981-r91563211-Fire_Mountain_Inn-Highlands_North_Carolina.html, and I’d write the same things today.

For THIS trip, I wanted to KNOW what to expect, and my expectations were again delightfully met.

Read the large number of very favorable reviews here. They are very believable, based on my several visits. No, they’re not the cheapest option, but the best won’t be the cheapest. Fire Mountain is exactly what it says it is.

The retreat is a delight, as are the hosts. I’ll be back…

Room Tip: Study the website, trust it. Cabins, Tree Houses, the Inn...all distinctly different. CALL and ask q...

Once again, we had a lovely new years weekend at our favorite cabin at fire mtn inn. After a busy holiday, how wonderful to be quiet and still and reflect on the past year and dream of the one to come. My husband and I laid by the fire, read and napped. Excellent accommodations and most gracious hosts, we look forward to our next visit....

We decided to escape to the mountains between Christmas and New Years and couldn't have been happier with our choice in accommodations. This was our first time in the highlands area so we didn't know what to expect. When we arrived we were greeted by Mathew and Hiram and their two King Charles Spaniels. Both took the time to recommend sights to see and restaurants around the area before showing us to our suite. We stayed in the Satohla room in the Inn and it was very spacious with beautiful mountain views. The whole property is secluded and makes you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere which was a plus in our eyes. Each morning they prepared a delicious breakfast which was a great way to start the day. The attention to detail and service by the staff was exceptional and I would highly recommend Fire Mountain if you are looking for a few days to get away from the craziness of life.
The one piece of advice I would give to future guests is to call ahead and have Mathew or Hiram tell you about the different accomodations available at Fire Mountain. Some have bathtubs, some do not. Some have fire places, some do not. Take the time to make a phone call and find out which room (or cabin) has the features that you want.
Overall, a fantastic experience that puts you close enough to Highlands to take advantage of the town, while being far enough away to feel like you are the only people around. We will definitely come back.

This vacation was everything it promised and more. The accommodations were clean and beautiful. The breakfasts were excellent and set in a lovely atmosphere. Every attention to detail was made so our anniversary stay was exceptional. We chose to participate in some of the extras - massages and wine and fruit baskets - and I'm so glad we did. The views were incredible at both sunrise and sunset. The fireplace had limitless supplies of wood. The staff was friendly, helpful, articulate, and informed. We truly felt like royalty when we wanted help - and were left alone and undisturbed the rest of the time. The Inn is close to lots of hiking and shopping and dining and sightseeing yet removed enough for complete tranquility. We can't wait to go back!
