Highlawn Inn Weekend

4.8 on July 20, 2016

A peaceful retreat for a getaway weekend, the charming Highlawn Inn has a gracious, friendly staff and delicious food. We are never disappointed when we visit.


Wonderful Weekend away

Sandy was the most gracious of hostesses....and breakfasts were plentiful and varied. Great location in Berkley Springs....I'll be back.

High lawn Inn is a charming and elegant B&B nestled I the trees in Berkeley Springs WV.


Best Anniversary Gift

5 on July 06, 2016

We stayed here for our 10th Anniversary. The suite was great. Quiet and comfortable. Great breakfast. Catered to our special dietary needs. A few blocks from downtown, a very short walk. We loved it and will book another stay again soon.


Professional and charming

4.6 on July 05, 2016

The Highlawn is showing its age but then, that's what many of us like in a B&B. It's easy to see how their awards were achieved in the 1990s and early 2000. But at this time, it's ready for some updated decor in the guest rooms. Aside from that I have never stayed at an Inn with that was more professional and accommodating. Sandy, Tim and Laura (breakfast server), and the house keeper were amazing. I requested a gluten free breakfast and no eggs. I'm used to modest breakfasts due to these requests. However, Sandy prepared a creative and exceptional meal booth mornings. My request often feels like an inconvenience to innkeepers, but Sandy treated it like a welcome challenge. Great coffee too. Awesome! We enjoyed our favorite wine and the antics of the cat on the large porch each evening. The location of the Inn is perfect for walking to town for dinner, the park, a spa or enjoying the local art in the shops and yet, you feel secluded in the mature trees and gardens of the Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.


Lovely place to unwind

4.4 on June 28, 2016

This was a wonderful place to stay for a nice weekend celebrating a friend's marriage. The owner is so sweet, and makes sure to walk around in the morning and check in on everyone and say hi. The cat who walks around at breakfast and lives on the first floor (Little Girl) is adorable (but DON'T try to pet her on her belly, seriously). The room was comfortable, and the bathroom was HUGE. It was cozy, and felt very homey, and everyone working there was absolutely attentive to all your needs. There are so many reasons why this is a better place than settling for Best Western or something. Take a chance on something more personal, and you'll have an excellent time!


Sweet & Darling Place

4.6 on June 23, 2016

Met family for a weekend and reserved two rooms: Lovers Loft & The Garden in "Aunt Pearls" adjacent lot from the main house. Lovers Loft may not work for those over 6ft as it has slanted roofing in areas. The Garden was roomy and a little larger than the Loft. Breakfasts included for two and included a combination of eggs, traditional breakfast meat options, and cut fruits. There was also coffe cake-type options, and one or two other items that changed, such as grits/corn dish and baked tomatoes and asparagus, seasonal type of options. No lunch of dinner available at this location. Rooms and breakfast settings all very Victorian.


Lovely spot for a weekend

4.2 on June 20, 2016

We stayed in the back room with the side porch. A little noisy in the evening because it backs onto the kitchen. But that is a small complaint for what was a lovely stay. Walking distance to the springs themselves and downtown. Easy access for getting elsewhere. Very friendly host and fabulous breakfast. We booked the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend because it was the only night she had available. So glad we could get in (and she was willing to take a one-night stay with such a busy weekend coming up!). We'll be back - for longer next time.


A charming home

5 on June 15, 2016

My mother and I stayed recently for the weekend. The home was exceptionally clean, everyone was very pleasant. The towels and sheets were nice and they had nice toiletries in the bathroom. We had the large front bedroom with a king bed and a day bed in the main house and the room was very spacious. The water temperature and pressure were good. Breakfast was good with a wide variety. I have pretty basic tastes so I had eggs, meat and a croissant both days but they also had fruits, breakfast veggies, cakes and other assorted goodies that my mother enjoyed. Neither my mother nor I cared for the coffee which was...not exactly flavored, but flavory sweet roasted or something. We like more plain coffee. The only thing we would have liked to have had that wasn't available was an ice bucket for the room and access to ice, however there was a water cooler in the parlor so that was nice. All in all a pleasant stay and we would stay again.


Awesome Experience

We go every year for our Anniversary. Sandi makes the best breakfast. Wish she would have a recipe book. They are all so nice there. You feel like it is your home.
