I took my wife and elderly mother up for a one-night stay at the Highland Inn, and we couldn't have been more pleased. This place obviously has a lot of history...more, in fact, than can be absorbed in a single-night stay. So we saved some for next time. My mother loves the place to death, and she can be right critical at times. Our accomodations suited us to a "T": my wife and I had our own bed and bath, while my mother had her own bed and bath in an adjoining room...all for the price of what you'd expect to pay for one room! My only disappointment was that the in-hotel dining room is not open but about four nights per week, and Tuesday was not one of them. But perhaps next time we'll plan accordingly. (There are a couple of other eateries within very easy walking distance.) P.S.--This place makes a nice stayover spot if you're visiting either the National Radio Telescope and visitor center in Green Bank, WV, or the Cass Scenic Railroad, also in West Virginia.
