“Cozy, Friendly Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2012

These innkeepers, Helene & Rick Siegel, aim high to please. The rooms in this historic house are clean, comfortable and cozy. They offer up a delicious breakfast and a stimulating Happy Hour. There is an outside hot tub within the gardens and many porches and decks so to feel and smell the cool mountain air. We can't wait to return for a repeat performance!

Many trips have been made to Highlands, but this last trip was because "Highlands is calling and I must go". This I told to Helene, and she and Rick fulfilled my wishes. From the moment I parked my car until the moment I drove from the street, I had no concerns or worries, and I was able to experience Highlands as I had hoped. A most comfortable bed, cookies, cheese and wine, fabulous breakfast, great conversation on a welcoming porch of a home filled with history. Books, birds, flowers, rain showers, gleaming sunsets, fresh air. Downtown shopping and restaurants within a few blocks. At this inn, you are able to be alone or be involved, knowing that you are cared for, safe, comfortable and welcome.

Room Tip: Some rooms have large baths, some have no countertops.

A long, winding road up a mountain led us to 4 1/2 St, a charming, comfortable home with wonderful host and hostess. The rooms are an interesting variety, all with exquisite linens and comforts. The food! Yikes! Each morning we had 3-4 hot servings, plus fresh fruit and home-made granola. Always a French toast variation, quiche, frittata, sweet goodie. Oh my. During cocktail hour/s, with another delicious food offering plus wines, we sat on one of the 3-4 porches and enjoyed the fabulous grounds and interesting company. It is a short walk into Highlands, a surprisingly high-end little town with good restaurants. Go--you'll love your time at 4 1/2 Street.

Room Tip: Book early.

Making a random stop in Highlands on our recent road trip, Helene and Rick could not have been more welcoming. We have stayed at B&Bs throughout the world, but this experience definitely ranks among the top 5. The inn is charming, being an eclectic mix of antiques and tchotchkes, and historic facility with all the modern conveniences. The grounds are beautifully manicured and one could spend an entire day relaxing in the hammock or sipping a favorite beverage from the wrap-around porch while the many varieties of birds chirp with delight. For those more energetic, your delightful hosts are an invaluable resource of suggestions for hiking or other nearby activities. They can also assist foodies with various recommendations for the many options that Highland has to offer. You'll find no better value anywhere than the 4-1/2 Street Inn and we look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: We chose a room on the main floor as it opened onto the porch for direct access to the beautiful yar...
