Great location near the main part of downtown. However, the motel backs up to what seems to be a back-road but is in fact a major truck street, so very noisy. People were very nice to us. No real complaints, but if we were to visit again we would stay elsewhere in town.

We visited on a Sunday during leaf peeping season in October and we very impressed with the live entertainment at brunch. The acoustic guitarist was as good as any well-known recording artist! I had one of the specials- a pork roast and my wife had lobster bisque in a bread bowl. The food was good but the service and atmosphere... More

Thank you, Ashley, for doing everything you could to make our stay wonderful and thank you, housekeepers, for making our room look pretty. We arrived around 6:30pm on a Thursday in late September, looking forward to having dinner at the restaurant. Though the website indicated that it was open Thursday through the weekend, it was not open that night and... More

We stayed 3 nights at this old historic Inn which is in the best possible location in downtown Highlands. We loved our comfy room with balcony - not big or fancy but certainly more than adequate. Not much offering for breakfast just small pastries but terrific lunch - we ate there everyday. Super nice and efficient wait staff. I'm sure... More

A very relaxing experience. Our room was in the guest house and was very small but had privacy and comfort. No drawers for storing clothes - only a very small closet. The room was very clean and cozy. I would suggest coffee machines in the guest house rooms. Each morning I had to dress to walk to the main house... More

We've stayed at the Main Street Inn on several occasions -- the most recent was over the July 4th weekend in 2016. If you are looking for a relaxing laid back atmosphere this is it.

Lovely restaurant in middle of Highlands, NC. Their signature salad, Bistro Salad is delicious. Inn established in 1885. Alfresco dining perfect for a summer afternoon. Prices are very reasonable. My waitress, Tiffany, was very personable.

This is my new favorite Inn. The rooms are beautifully furnitured with antiques and white linens. There is hand milled soap in each of the claw foot bathtubs that carries you away to simpler times. The food at the Bistro is a local favorite and I can understand why... Everything my husband & I ate was delicious.

The Man Street Inn has a history of length in Highlands. We ate our meal inside although there is ample outside tables on a lovely patio surrounded by trees and all is beautifully landscaped. The trout on our salads was fresh (raised in Waynesville, NC), well grilled and the greens were fresh, cold and crisp.
