Mountain Laurel Rest is a luxurious bed and breakfast inn. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains we provide the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, cozy overnight with the family or simply a peaceful retreat. We are just minutes away from many wonderful hiking trails, waterfalls, gorgeous mountain views, shopping, cafes and gourmet restaurants in Highlands, NC. One of our focuses is providing a peaceful environment to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.

We recently returned from a weekend getaway. After reading many positive reviews on Mountain Laurel Rest, we decided to book two nights and we definitely were not disappointed. This place was beautiful, well decorated, very quiet and tranquil. Our room was very spacious with comfortable bedding and a cozy fireplace. As an added bonus, the steam shower was a feature we really enjoyed. The breakfast was delicious each morning as well as the snack/coffee stations that were available throughout the day. This is not your typical Bed & Breakfast, we enjoyed a peaceful and private romantic weekend. Downtown Highlands is only a short drive (8-9 miles) with beautiful scenery and great places to eat. We are already looking forward to a return trip - we highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed. Tommy & Cindy

My wife and I visited this charming inn in early October. We were thrilled with the ambience and peace of the place, and our time flew by in a flash. It was hard to leave our large, well decorated room, but with so many hikes and waterfalls a few minutes drive away, there was enough to keep us busy. We'll definitely come back. Oh, Joel and Lacey, the innkeepers were extremely welcoming and they made our trip that much more special.

My wife and I visited Mountain Laurel in late September and were very pleased. The setting was beautiful, the atmosphere was quiet and so relaxing. Joel and Lacey could not have been more friendly or accommodating! Everything was so warm and inviting. We would absolutely go back!

We had 3 peaceful days surrounded by some of the most amazing beauty. We visited in October and couldnt have been more pleased with our accomodations and the special welcoming hospitality of Janis and Dave. They made us feel at home and at the same time like royalty. I highly recommend Mountain Laurel Rest and can't wait to visit again. A+++++

We stayed at the Inn for the first time in July 22-24, 2011 for a weekend getaway at the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted at the door as family by Janis. We had a great time. The rooms are new and huge, the bed was extremely comfortable. Dave and Janis went out of their way to make us feel at home. The breakfasts and late afternoon appetizers and refreshments were outstanding. It felt as though we were visiting family with all the attention and long conversations. Great visit and great value. Before we left, we booked another weekend getaway for October 2011 to be pampered again
