We love, love, love this place. We have stayed in the guest house and the main house, both are great!! The hotel is so clean. They have coffee and breakfast breads out every morning. There is a great bar and restaurant in the hotel. They had a lady playing music outside during lunchtime. You can dine outside if you like.... More

Main Street Inn is a very average place. While the rooms are accommodating and quaint, we were disappointed, only a little, in the morning coffee where replenishment was absent for a while. Its not a true Innkeeper experience. When you pull up to it, there is a great deal of ambiguity with regard to the road appearance and it took... More

OK. It is not quite the season yet and Highlands is still hibernating! There was nobody at reception but I spoke with Claire by phone, and got keys for several rooms to review. Rooms are cozy and pleasant other than a rattling window (Room 8) Coffee was available (not until after 8am) in the lobby along with some muffins donuts... More

DISCLAIMER: My sister-in-law is the manager of this property. We didn't really know if we were going to stay here or at my SILs home when we arrived mid afternoon.

We had a great time here. The rooms were super clean, comfortable and adorable. The claw-foot tub was amazing. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location and the innskeeper was very pleasant and welcoming. There were complimentary beverages and snacks, and coffee/breakfast was served each morning. We will definitely be returning to the Main Street Inn next time we... More

Main Street Inn is cozy and quaint. We love to wake up in the morning and end the evenings by the fire in the lobby. Often we connect with another couple or two there and enjoy the fellowship. Conveniently located at the end of the main drag, all the shopping begins right outside our door. Claire and the staff make... More

We initially planned on a family/pet weekend at a VRBO, but when that fell through at the last second, we asked around for recommendations for just my wife and me, and we managed to snag the last available room at the Main Street Inn.

Love the bistro outside on a pretty day. Inside, old highlands charm atmosphere. My favorite is the Main Street Inn's Sunday Brunch. Service for us has always been fast and friendly. Family friendly as well.

Disappointing...expected so much more after reading some reviews. Wish we would have had the experience that others who rated this place highly had. Location is good, room was clean (although very small), and I really like the bayberry soap - but other than that, there was a lot left to be desired. Staff was not polite or helpful, and could...

The hotel was in a great location, and the staff were friendly. However, we had a maintenance issue that was never addressed. We arrived on Friday and reported a leaky tub that dripped continuously.

I am sorry about the shower faucet dripping in the tub. I can assure you this was not an ongoing problem. The person that went to try to correct the leak realized it was a broken part, and the part had to be ordered. (not available locally). I have since ordered several replacement parts in case this happens again. I... More
