The rooms are very clean and the grounds of the property are beautiful. You xan see that the rooms/nathrooms are dated in the pictures, and I was okay with that based on room size location and price. However the mattresses are horrible and the other log furniture has very thin

This was the first time we had stayed here so we didn't really know what to expect. My wife and I were met at the front desk by Cindy and she was so very helpful. She was very friendly, informative, and excellent at her position. We were offered to look at the rooms before

We are glad you enjoyed your stay here a Mitchell's Lodge and Cottages! Our front desk and housekeeping are very professional to make sure our guests feel right at home. Unfortunately, winter is not a time to enjoy the balcony, but the perfect time to sit by your gas fireplace!! Spring is great time to come to Highlands when you can use the balcony during the day, and the fireplace on the cool nights. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to Highlands!

Perfect recap of my fiance's Birthday week. I haven't stayed here in 22 years but the hospitality hasn't changed at all. Stayed in the cedar lodge with jacuzzi and was very relaxing. We look forward to seeing the summer season with y'all.

I would highly recommend. Much nicer than a Hampton Inn type stay, without the pretense & expense of competing places. Great location just off main street, with a pretty creek below. Continental breakfast served. Friendly staff as well.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The ambiance of Mitchell's Lodge is to reflect the rustic feel of Highlands. We want our guests to take a step out of the modern world and slow down with the mountainous vibe. We are located only 2 blocks from Main Street, but still tucked back like a cabin in the woods. We look forward to seeing you on your next mountain getaway to Highlands!

This is one fantastic Lodge especially when you consider the price in the rooms compared to others in the area. You can go anywhere from a cabin down to a standard room all with reasonable prices. My preference is the room with a kitchen and a in room sauna. The staff is very

The distance between the two locations is about 0.6 miles and walking would take about 12 minutes. Nevertheless, I would take Bonnie's suggestion and not walk it.
