“Awesome Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Fire Mountain was a perfect getaway weekend! Beautiful setting in the mountains, comfortable sleep, delicious breakfasts!! Restaurants and shopping/sight seeing in the area was really fun and all our meals were fantastic. We will definitely go for another trip perhaps to enjoy a different season of the year.

Room Tip: As it was in March when we went, we chose the room with the fireplace. It was nice and cozy!

Cannot say enough nice things about our stay at Fire Mountain. Our hosts, Hiram and Mathew were knowledgeable of everything to do in the area. Our main goal was to enjoy the views from different mountains and their suggestions on how to approach each excursion were invaluable .
This is a great place to wind down and enjoy your favorite person's company .
Also , If you stay in the inn versus a cabin , you will find that Fire Mountain Inn breakfast are inspired as well as delicious . I highly recommend Fire Mountain Inn as a great place to get away with your spouse .

We had a perfect weekend in Highlands, NC. Fire Mountain is about 9 miles south of Highlands off of Dillard hwy (106). The property is wonderful and it's a perfect location to get away for a weekend. We stayed in Red Thunder, which has the best sunset views. Great location for hiking, seeking out waterfalls or traveling into Highlands for shopping and incredible restaurants. The accommodations come with breakfast and they really did a great job with it. This would be a great place for a group of friends as well.

Room Tip: We stayed in Red Thunder. It has the very best Sunset views and the breakfast area is right outside...

My husband and I go there every year in the summer for our anniversary and count down the time before we can go back. This year we were too impatient to wait and decided to see what it is like in the winter. We were blown away as usual. Everything was perfect and the views were spectacular with the leaves off the trees. The staff is always warm and welcoming and Matthew and Hiram always greet us like we are family. If you are a returning guest, they always find something new to recommend as far as outdoor recreation and great dining. WE CANT WAIT TO GO BACK TO OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

Went up there for Valentines weekend and had a great time! It was great service and the owners were more than helpful. They had great suggestions on where to go and the popular things to go see. Our room also had one of the best views I could imagine. I would recommend fire mountain to anyone looking for a nice and relaxing trip up to the highlands. I can't imagine returning and staying anywhere else.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet get-a-away in the mountains and found Fire Mountain Inn on tripdvisor. From the first drive up to the property we knew we had found our new favorite place. Check in was easy and informative with Matthew and Hiram. They gave us great tips for restaurants and day hikes. Our room was PERFECT! My husband and I called it rustic elegance but the only thing rustic is the simplicity of it all. The room was beautiful; the view breathtaking. The champagne and strawberries were waiting for us as we were celebrating my husband's birthday so we sat on the balcony and enjoyed a beautiful mountain sunset. Edith prepared gourmet breakfasts every morning. When we would wake and go to the library/dining area for breakfast a roaring fire and hot, delicious coffee were always waiting. One morning we mentioned to Matthew and Hiram that one of our turn signals was out on our car and they called the auto shop down the road and had us fixed up within minutes. Even after taking trail hikes around Highlands I always came back to Fire Mountain and walked around the property again. I just loved the setting, the quiet, petting the horses, being greeting by someone's dog who would join me on my walk. Throughout the week my husband and I kept saying that we would love to return each season. I honestly can't think of a single thing that could improve our stay at Fire Mountain Inn.

Room Tip: When choosing a room the most important thing to know is if you're a "sunrise" person...

Fire Mountain Inn came to our attention through Trip Advisory ...and once again we are so thankful that Trip Advisory exists for us busy people with a need to find just the right place in a location we had previously not been. Our stay at Fire Mountain Inn surpassed our expectations in everyway and we left sure we would return... The InnKeepers Hiram and Mathew have caringly created an atmosphere for self emptying stress and refueling the human spirit ... though serene decor, gourmet cusine, precautions for our privacy, attentive listenig to guide us to leisure walks and driving trips, music and the arts and eateries, exquisite views from the top of Fire Mountain Inn with sunsets second to none, evening fireside reading, memorable morning chats with fellow guests whose background and interests were uncanningly similar. The InnKeepers' caring touches made a special celebration a time to remember. For not even a special occasion this is the place to come for the specialness we need to punctuate our lives.

Room Tip: Our room was very conveniently located to access the fireplace lounge and dinning area.
