  • Introduction

     

    Tucked away on a quiet street in the heart of Highlands, North Carolina, the 4-1/2 Street Inn is the perfect getaway. Complete serenity in peaceful surroundings. This delightful Bed & Breakfast Inn, nestled in the cool elevations of the Blue Ridge Mountains and less then an hour from the Great Smoky Mountains, will ease you into a simpler time. Whether you choose to settle in with a good book, relax by the fire or ride our bicycles into town, our 4-1/2 Street Inn offers the ultimate comfort, charm and convenience.

    We are just a short walk from many of Highlands' unique restaurants, some of which hold the prestigious Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. Rich in culture, Highlands offers a full calendar of events including Chamber Music, Theater, Art Exhibits, and more! We're a half day's drive or less from Atlanta, Knoxville, Charlotte, Columbia, Birmingham and Raleigh-Durham. Once here, the Biltmore Estate is an easy day trip through beautiful mountain roads. Come visit!

    Imagine breathing clean mountain air while you relax on a hammock and listen to the sounds of gentle music... or sit by a crackling fire and munch warm freshly baked cookies after a healthy mountain hike... or relax in a rocking chair on the deck after a therapeutic soak in the hot tub or identify the over 40 species of birds that visit our backyard. Your own private retreat from the workaday world, the 4-1/2 Street Inn offers a secluded sanctuary that will revitalize you, melt away stress, and pamper you beyond your imagining.

    We invite you to take a journey back to a simpler time, when the faint rustle of leaves from a quiet breeze lulled you to sleep and the melodies of songbirds awakened you in the morning. A perfect combination of romantic country charm and understated elegance, the 4-1/2 Street Inn is designed to be your home away from home... and then some.

    Ten unique and beautifully decorated guest rooms are appointed with luxurious Charisma bed and bath linens and fluffy terry cloth robes. Handmade quilts provide cozy comfort when there is a chill in the mountain air.

    Gift Certificates are available.
