The Old Edwards Inn and Spa Highlands, North Carolina
Our rooms shared a very private balcony, overlooking the main street.
The grounds were lush and green.
A distinctive European feeling in the hotel and village shops.
Old slate and stone buildings.
Inside the inn, the atmosphere resembled a English country manor .
The hotel's restaurant - the Madison- served us a divine meal.
Goat cheese fritters on a bed of mixed greens with a strawberry rhubarb gelee and dressing.
The little cubes of the rhubarb gelatin were garnished with black sea salt- a wonderful
Soup of the day garnished with micro greens and candied bacon.
Blueberry cobbler garnished with a sprig of lavender.
A medley of paper thin radishes are showcased on this beautiful salad.
A Champagne infused orange dessert
Cozy dining alcoves.
Coffee and tea service set out in the morning for the hotel guests.
And a freezer full of dove bars for midnight cravings.
There was plenty of shopping in the town to keep us busy. Across the street, a charming
florist shop caught our attention.
The Old Edwards Inn has a beautiful spa.
And after that massage- enjoy a libation in one of the comfy chaise lounges.
This is a wonderful getaway spot. The inn's staff was charming, the accommodations were
delightful and the food was sensational. This was one of the best dinners that I have ever experienced in a restaurant. I highly recommend spending a couple of days in this charming inn in Highlands, NC. It is an easy drive from Asheville. I will be back soon!
