Does not apply to the Bargain Basement.August & September are the best months for viewing hummingbirds in Highlands! The babies are hatching and there are families of the cute little creatures buzzing all over the porch where we have added seven new feeders to see if that would attract more hummers. Well, it did and they also buzz red hats, shirts, or lipstick! They’ll be with us until mid-September or beyond when they begin their fantastic journey south. This great photo was taken last year by one of our guests.
Recently, we made the 75-minute drive through bucolic backroads into Pickens, SC to pick up local honey from Carolina Honeybees Farm. Here, Chris is making friends with the goats and you can see the “Rainbow Row” of hives in the background.
An array of beautiful hens wander around annoying the goats and providing color and humor for visitors to the farm. We bought honey, lip balm, beeswax candles, and creamed honey (sort of like butter). For more information go to www.carolinahoneybees.com.
It was a Honey of a Trip!!

Prettiest jam color you’ve ever seen.
All the summer berries: strawberries, raspberries & blueberries,
plus cranberries for an unusually bright flavor.
As you can see, I’ve been busy in the kitchen since things slowed down after an especially busy summer season. Thanks to everyone who visited for making it a great come-back year here in Highlands! We’re still offering the Mon/Tues discounts in September, and October bookings are looking good, so please call ahead for all stays during Leaf Season.
And we don’t roll up the sidewalks in November & December either, so check out special events like Highlands Culinary Weekend (Nov 12/13), the Christmas Tree Lighting (Nov 27), and Highlands Christmas Parade (Dec 4). There’s nothing like a twinkly small-town holiday celebration to lift your spirits and we hope you will join us during this fun and festive time of year!
