Just far enough out of town to get away from the tourist confusion. The setting was inspiring as was the service, We stayed at the Inn, but conversations with guests that had the cottages said they were interesting. We had a very small issue with our room, but it was taken care of right away. Breakfast was excellent. A few... More

Half-Mile Farm, like Highlands itself, is a charming blend of rustic mountain surroundings and upscale amenities. We spent two nights in the Blacksmith Shop Cabin. The cabin was very roomy, extremely clean, and quite comfortable. We loved the gas fireplace; I told my husband that I would have a fire all the time if all it took was a push... More

We stayed in one of the cabins, Elizabeth. Not being in the main house/courtyard, we were not ignored. Welcome turn down service and curtains adjusted for evening-cookies on pillows. The room, while rustic, had all the necessities, including a jetted tub and flat screen tv. Wifi is included, but cell service in not good at all. To remedy this, management... More

What a really nice, relaxing stay at Half-Mile Farm. We had stayed there years ago before Old Edwards bought it and enjoyed it very much. Now, Old Edwards has added to that by stepping up every aspect to a higher level. We felt totally pampered. The room was top notch with a very comfortable bed, the grounds were beautiful, and...

extremely pleasant location, quiet, many scenic places to visit and the accommodations were quite handsome and the breakfasts outstanding - what else can I say? Only trick is in finding it as the GPS doesn't quite have it right..

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For guests of age 18 and over, Half-Mile Farm is that place where you relax as soon as you drive onto the property. A hilly expanse of green lawn welcomes you, and the main historic farmhouse reveals itself at the crest. Along the drive, Apple Lake glistens and offers canoes along its shore for guests to enjoy a soothing paddle. A chef-prepared breakfast begins each day for every guest, and evenings bring complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft beverages to enjoy with other guests or to take to your own little corner of the farm. A seasonal outdoor heated pool, grape arbor, vegetable garden and apple trees all cascade along the grounds. ... more   less
