On the fun and scenic southwestern plateau of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, Old Edwards Inn and Spa is woven into the community, culture and setting of the vibrant town of Highlands. Situated in the heart of downtown is a European-style resort and mountain retreat with luxury guestrooms, suites, cottages, and vacation homes, premium leisure amenities, farm-fed restaurants and a world-class spa.
September brings the last of summertime celebrations but, fortunately for oyster lovers, it also means the return of their favorite shellfish. For this annual Old Edwards tradition, guests will gather in The Orchard with lawn games and live music. Passed hors d'oeuvres, a lavish raw bar and creative cocktails from James Beard Foundation award-winner Miles Macquerrie (Kimball House and Watchman's) will set the stage for deliciousness to follow. Bryan Rackley, Kimball House's oyster expert, will present an array of Southern raw oysters from farmer friends on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts while Chef Bryan Wolfe of Kimball House and Chef Sara Prezioso of The Darling in Charleston round out the all-star culinary talent with an array of festival stations for an informal Old Edwards-style feast. Craft beer and fine wine will also be served and dancing to the live band will be highly encouraged.
