The Fish Cabin may be the best room on the property. It has two large sets of French doors that open on to the Inn's private fish pond up next to the house.

There is a small kitchenette off of the king bedroom with gas log fireplace and dinette. There is also a very large shower and a jetted tub in the spacious bath. Renting this cabin with the Captain's house makes a wonderful two bedroom, two bath cabin.

Always amazing

5 on July 02, 2013

My husband and I visit the Inn at Half Mile Farm every year . Every year for the last six years we spend a relaxing week at the inn. We love everything about the inn! Beautiful , very clean rooms. Breakfasts are always amazing along with wine and appetizers everyday. The staff is always professional and very friendly. We look so forward to this peaceful and serene place every year! We always recommend it to friends and family. Thank you so much for making this a place we always want to return to.


Home away from home.............

5 on November 13, 2012

We love the quiet "gentility" of this very special place....the friendly staff make you feel as if this is your private residence. the food, view, service are "spot on" can't wait to go back!


Simply the best!

5 on October 23, 2012

5 of 5 stars We had an ideal lodging experience. The staff and management at the Inn at Half Mile Farm simple know how to do it right! The accommodations provided everything you wanted, when, where and how you would want it. I wouldn't have changed a thing about our room or the Inn common spaces. Some "mountain" retreats trend too folksy or try too hard and end up too formal and stuffy. This was neither. The room and common areas were luxurious and comfortable, sophisticated and tasteful. But the real thing that sets this place so far and above all others is the service! The staff is friendly and attentive. Fresh homemade cookies all day. An evening wine and hors d'ouevres hour that you actually want to schedule your day around attending and a gourmet breakfast that is both filling, comforting and YUMMY. I've never put much worth into amenities such as a turn down service, an evening wine and treat hour, or even a breakfast, but when they are handled with such care in their planning, professionalism in their execution and quality in their production, they are SO worthwhile. Simply put, this inn is simply the best.


Wedding Celebration!

5 on September 17, 2012

The quaintness and off the beaten path location made the Inn the perfect locale for my youngest daughter's wedding the last weekend in August. The attention to details and the friendliness of all who worked at Half Mile helped to make the weekend a true treat for all of us. The pace allowed for a pefect celebration and as the mother of the bride, I had nothing to worry about. Priceless!! Oh and did I mention the blueberry pancakes or the eggs benedict?? I also enjoyed the previous two visits planning the event. Every room offers a unique factor. I'm looking forward to returning to the Highlands and to Half Mile Farm.


Good for our marriage... Summer 2012

5 on July 09, 2012

I'm thrilled that my husband loved our stay at the "Inn at Half-Mile Farm" in Highlands, NC. The service was just perfect for our personalities. We enjoyed the choice of engaging in conversation or, as much privacy as we desired. We found a perfect balance at this B&B. The breakfast was outstanding...beautiful and delicious. Being surrounded by blooming mountain laurel and flowers made for awsome morning walks. We hope to return regularly...Love & Cherish


Stay for a Wedding

4.6 on July 02, 2012

The stay at the Inn at Half Mile Farm was absolutely outstanding! I have never had a hotel staff as concerned for my needs as the Half Mile. Everyone was courteous and first-rate in every detail. I was only invited to attend the wedding, but the staff made me feel like my presence added to the event...that's how much they cared! Finally, I went running in town after the wedding was done, and I had left my keys out while enjoying the scenery. I got back and had realized I had left my keys out in the middle of the run. The staff actually drove me back into town to help me find my keys to my rental car. How first-class is that? If I find myself back in NC, count on my return to the Inn at Half Mile! -David


Heavenly!!!

5 on June 12, 2012

This was our second stay at The Inn at Half Mile Farm in Highlands, NC and definitely won't be our last. The Inn is pure heaven - you feel it as soon as you make the first turn up the winding, gravel driveway. Beautifully maintained grounds with flowers everywhere. Sit on the front porch and take in the beauty of the lake and mountains. It is so serene....all you hear are crickets, birds, and frogs. The rooms are spacious and clean, with stone fireplaces, each with their own porch, jetted tubs, walk-in showers, comfortable beds with divine linens. The staff is more than friendly and accommodating - they make you feel so welcomed (thank you Vivian & Jason, in particular), housekeeping is excellent and we can't say enough about the food. Breakfast is superb and the appetizers in the afternoon are incredibly delicious. Jason and Kim are amazing chefs! We wouldn't stay anywhere else - by far, THE BEST B&B in Highlands. Just go, you will love it!


Spectacular Service!

Gorgeous location, very private. Amazing service, they have thought of everything. Would definitely return.


Perfect get-a-way

5 on March 20, 2010

My husband and I had a delightful couple of days at this inn. Beautiful room, fantastic breakfast and hors d'oeuvres, and a lovely setting. The chef catered to my specific food allergy with special dishes just for me, and also recommended some great restaurants. The surrounding area is incredible with many hiking trails and waterfalls.


Close to Highlands; wonderful breakfasts; great rooms

5 on March 14, 2010

This is a wonderful in located on a small lake. The rooms are lovely, clean and most have private decks to enjoy coffee or cocktails. Many of the rooms not in the main house have transom windows which can let in more light at night than desired. If you have trouble sleeping if it's not pitch dark, you may want to ask about rooms that don't have the transom windows. That's the only issue we had with this lovely place. We've stayed here 3 times after staying at several other B&B's in the area - searching for the right level of comfort, seclusion and proximity to Highlands. The breakfasts are delicious and creative. Stuffed french toast, baked eggs and other breakfast treats as well as choices of yogurt and cereal if you like a lighter breakfast. They have a wine and cheese hour in the evening and it's a great way to meet the other guests and chat. They always have a selection of home made cookies as well as water, soft drinks and packaged snacks. The inn is very close to Highlands which is very convenient on those dark nights on winding mountain roads driving back from dinner or entertainment.
