The Main Street Inn

Bistro On Main Is Now Open CELEBRATING OUR 128th SEASON SOUTHERN LIVING MAGAZINE "FAVORITE INN"

Who We Are

Highlands Premier Historic Boutique Inn located directly on Main Street. The Main Street Inn has been welcoming guests for over 125 years. It was restored to its original c. 1881 Federal Farmhouse style and luster in 1998 by New York Architect and Designer Christopher E. Dubs. Original hand-hewn beams were exposed, and many original sand-forged windows were saved.


The Inn now offers 20 charming and cozy rooms with private baths, individual heating & air conditioning, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi. Many have private balconies.

The Lobby

Large stone fireplaces in the dining room and lobby add to the atmosphere. Rooms in the Main House and Guest House are decorated to reflect the character and grace of this historic structure; many are furnished with antique furniture and appointments.


Situated within the five block business district of the beautiful mountain town of Highlands, North Carolina, fine dining and elegant shopping in local specialty shops are just a short level walk outside the Inn.
