Hummingbirds Galore

Thank you so much for your hospitality, delicious breakfast, cozy room & great conversation during our stay last weekend. We loved the Bargain Basement room & sitting on the porch. The hummingbirds were so much fun! We look forward to the next time we can stay!

Charming & Yummy

We loved our two nights in your charming B&B and felt so comfortable and "satisfied" while staying there. Your home is so welcoming and spotless, and the breakfasts were delicious! We thank you for all the above - as well as the yummy goodies & warm drinks made available.

Wonderful Family Celebration

A heartfelt "Thank You" for the more than wonderful hospitality during our family celebration. All our gang loved everything about those special unforgettable days. And you both contributed much to making it so. Love your place! Thanks too for the birthday gifts. Great reminder of great days!

What a Great Experience!

My wife and I had never stayed in a bed & breakfast here in the States (we are retired military and frugal) until this week when we lucked out and spent 3 nights at the Colonial Pines Inn in Highlands, NC. Wow, what a great experience! The room was spotless, rustic, cozy, charming and comfortable, and the common areas (fireplace and seating area, dining room, and pantry with 24 hour snacks) were also well-appointed, homey, and inviting. The gourmet breakfasts were exceptional and the proprietors, Chris and Donna Alley, were perfect hosts, anxious to meet every need and offer great advice on what to do and see in Highlands. The rates were very reasonable, especially when compared to other nearby B&Bs. We are planning to return in the early summer and we can strongly recommend the Colonial Pines Inn without any hesitation.

We love the Colonial Pines Inn!

We have been coming to Highlands and the Colonial Pines Inn B&B for at least 8 years. One year we tried staying in several B&B's over a week, but we'll never do that again. We find everything we want at the Colonia Pines. It's quiet, peaceful, interesting, fun, relaxing. Donna's afternoon beverages and dainties are delightful on the porch. Her breakfasts are superb every single morning and fills one up for a day of hiking or shopping or mountain climbing. Chris is the most reponsive inn keeper we've ever met, and he's very knowledgeable about many topics. Every third week of July, you'll find us in the "Sunflower Room" (they call it the Bargain Basement, but that's not a nice enought name for it). Thank you, Donna and Chris, for another lovely stay. ~Dee and Ricci Black

Just right for us.

We don't have much B&B experience yet: but, I'm sure that Colonial Pines will be the standard to measure all others. The accommodations, the food, location ambiance were just right for us. The hospitality was the very best.

InnSide Tip - Fly fishing,
Get a guide for the most fun. I had a great experience fishing small streams with Gordon Vanderpool, a local.
