Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Highlands Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Highlands, NC discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Highlands hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Highlands got its start in 1875 when two developers from Kansas predicted that the area would become a major trade route in the future. They came to that conclusion by drawing lines from New York to New Orleans and from Chicago to Savannah. The lines crossed in what is now known as Highlands. The developers were slightly off, however, as Highlands rests about 120 miles from Atlanta, but their logic was sound.

After Highlands was founded, the community became a health and summer resort atop one of western North Carolina's highest crests. As the highest incorporated town east of the Rockies, Highlands became a popular option for pioneers settling after the Civil War. By the 1880s, nearly 300 people called Highlands home.

Today, Highlands serves as a cultural center for authors, photographers, musicians, scholars, scientists, and artists. It's just isolated enough to retain its small-town charm and just cosmopolitan enough to attract visitors from all over. If you're looking for a memorable getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains that lies beyond the overcrowded and touristy Asheville, give Highlands a try.

Whatever drew you to this beautiful nook in western North Carolina, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to experience everything Highlands has to offer.

When is the best time to visit Highlands, NC?

The best time to visit Highlands is in the summer when the weather is warm enough to enjoy the area's outdoor attractions. Given Highlands' elevation of 4,118 feet, summers are quite mild. In fact, average highs top out at 78 degrees Fahrenheit in July, with lows dipping just under 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keep in mind, however, that summer is peak tourist season in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hotel rates increase with the influx of visitors, so you may want to reserve your room well in advance.

Fall is a breathtaking time of year in western North Carolina. From late September through November, brisk temperatures provide an ideal environment for hiking and viewing the changing leaves. Pack a few layers and book your hotel early, especially if you're visiting when the leaves are at their most colorful.

Spring warms up slowly in Highlands, giving you the perfect chance to save money on your hotel and beat the crowds. April and May experience average highs in the mid-to-upper 60s, and the mountains come alive with greenery and blooms. Just be sure to pack a raincoat and umbrella, as Highlands gets an average of 81 inches of rain per year.

Wintertime in Highlands is quiet and hotel rates hit rock bottom. If you're wanting to visit the area on a tight budget, you can't beat a wintertime getaway. Temperatures fluctuate between the mid-20s and upper 40s all winter, so dress accordingly and book refundable flights if necessary. As long as any inclement weather stays at bay, you can still enjoy a brisk stroll in the Nantahala National Forest.
