Fall In Love….

Leave a comment
…with the REAL Highlands! Before there were fancy hotels, fine dining, boutique shopping, spas, and a multitude of special events, there were still plenty of reasons to fall in love with Highlands. Pristine mountain air and a natural setting like the one shown above will take your breath away and calm your soul for a weekend, a season, or a lifetime.
Give your wallet a break, too, when you take advantage of “Second Night Half Price” by arriving on Monday or Tuesday, excluding holidays and October. This offer does not apply to The Bargain Basement, which is always discounted to $90 per night.
The amazing spot pictured above is right in town at Highlands Nature Center (across from Miss Rebecca’s Cottage, our three bedroom rental house) and is one of many special locations throughout our beautiful mountain area. Come to Highlands and find your favorite place for relaxing and renewing – compliments of Mother Nature!

Must-Do Hike to Sunset Rocks & Sunrise Rocks

Leave a comment
SUNSET ROCKS is a short popular hike right here in town to a magnificent overview of Highlands as it is nestled in the mountains. You can drive to a parking area on Main Street and take the 15 minute walk to the top, but we prefer to start off from the Inn. Ask us for a map showing a shortcut through the Nature Center to the beginning of the trail. (Our 3-bedroom vacation rental, Miss Rebecca’s Cottage, is adjacent to this trail.)

SUNRISE ROCKS can be found by going left at the clearing at the top of the Sunset trail. You will enjoy an intimate but sweeping view of Horse Cove Valley and Black Rock Mountain. There is also a very interesting view of Whiteside Mountain (which looks like the head and shoulders of a gorilla) from a slightly different angle not shown in this photo. order a picnic lunch from Fressers Express or Mountain Fresh Deli and we will lend you a backpack! www.colonialpinesinn.com
