200 Main by Old Edwards Hospitality Highlands Reviews
It's the Main Thing Nov 27, 2014
A much enjoyed hotel for three nights during a visit to Highlands. As of 2014 a newer facility that sits just past the hill on Main Street (a sprawling Baptist Church commands the crest of the hill). It is managed by Old Edwards Inn, so a higher price point and higher expectations, but they delivered for the most part.
Room was pleasantly appointed and bed very comfy, though square footage was spartan – my room was a double and no problems since it was just me, but had there been more I suspect things would have been cramped. Won’t itemize the amenities, but the bases were amply covered with one delightful extra – the bathroom floor was heated! Felt really nice and toasty on the toes each morning.
And there were other heat bonuses. 200 Main has a splendid terrace area overlooking Main Street. All stone with a bubbling brook (artificial, but the sound is splendid) and a fire pit. The pit got fired up every evening and I could never resist stopping by for a few minutes to warm my hands in the chilly weather. They also have a heated mineral pool, but it was closed when I was there (sadly it seemed to be closed for winter, which should be prime season?).
They offer a very pleasant lobby area with roaring fireplace and free WiFi throughout the property (better yet, no password to access). The best attribute, however, was the service. Most places I visited in Highlands featured mediocre service --- not bad, but not polished or terribly sincere. It did not bother me as I could appreciate the difficulty in recruiting folks for low paying jobs in a remote location, but no issue at 200 Main. The entire staff was helpful and cheerful, making this lodge a true treat.
