Absolutely wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend. Spent 5 nights in the Whiteside Cottage Master Suite. Loved being so close to all hotel amenities but having the feeling of a secluded mountain cottage. Bedroom and living room were huge and perfect for an extended stay. The hotel was at full capacity but never felt crowded. Nightly entertainment at the lodge...

Old Edwards was outstanding! The drive through north Georgia and North Carolina was beautiful. Once we arrived, the staff was welcoming and outstanding. The hotel was older, yet very charming. The amenities were superb, especially the spa shower! One of the staffers was beyond excellent , Evan Bryson. We will definitely return.

This is a nice place! Yes, it's a twisty mountain drive to get there; but the ambiance, service, atmosphere, etc., is really top of the charts! Ok then, is it worth the price? Yes, but it sure comes easier with a bit of an off season break (if cost is not an issue for you, then go ahead and make...

The peace and quite of the location is a draw for anyone to get away from the bustle of the city clutter. The spa rooms and amenities are first class and worth the extra $$.

If you have unlimited excess funds and want exceptional service, this is a great choice. Highlands is much like Aspen east, upscale shops and lovely history in all directions. Be prepared to have every need attended.
