The Highlands House is a charming antebellum style bed and breakfast located on the South Side of 30A in Santa Rosa Beach. We have a private beach entrance from our property and 30A is one of the most upscale and secluded parts of the area. The waters here are emerald green and the sand is sugar white. It’s absolutely breathtaking and peaceful! Our venue can either accommodate a beach wedding or garden wedding, and garden reception. Our beach is more secluded than most in the area and our garden is plush, with a beautiful array of colorful flowers throughout.

The house includes accommodations for up to 26 people, private bathrooms in each room, an ocean view from most rooms, high speed internet access, full usage of our bicycles, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. We also have a beautiful dining area overlooking the gulf where we can host your rehearsal dinner. If grilling out is more your style, we have a huge grill and outdoor patio that can accommodate that is well.

We will definitely do what we can to make this time with your loved ones extra special and with having everything that you need onsite, it definitely brings an added convenience to your event. If you have any further questions, please email highlandshouseweddings@gmail.com or call 850-267-0110. Thank you for considering Highlands House for such a special occasion and we look forward to hearing from you! Read less

Our relationship with Highlands House Inn began a year before our daughter’s June 21, 2014, wedding date. Our daughter found Highlands House through an online search and loved the style and old world charm of the house. During an onsite visit, Sherry arranged for a cake tasting and food tasting and a tour of the house and the grounds. We loved her enthusiasm and were convinced she would do everything she could to give Sarah the wedding she was dreaming of.
We liked the option to choose a package based on the number of guests we expected to attend. We also decided to rent Highlands House for four days for the wedding party to stay in so that all the bridesmaids and groomsmen would be together during the days leading up to the wedding. Having all the wedding party together made it much easier to coordinate activities and make sure everyone was on time for events.
The wedding and reception were flawless. The officiant had performed numerous ceremonies for Highlands House weddings and did a wonderful job of directing the rehearsal and performing the ceremony. We brought a number of pictures and other items to use as decorations for the reception and the staff worked them in beautifully. They created the flower bouquets and table centerpieces right on site. The food was excellent, the cake withstood the summer heat and most importantly the guests had fun.
We appreciated the professionalism and friendliness displayed by everyone at Highlands House. Sarah was able to really enjoy herself in the days leading up to the wedding and spend time on the beach relaxing with her friends because she knew the staff would handle all the details. They offered suggestions for things we had not thought of doing but got approval from us on numerous details before proceeding. Their goal was to create a dream wedding for our daughter and they succeeded beautifully.

We recently had our wedding this past weekend, April 26, at Highlands House. I have been planning for over a year and am one that likes to be involved in every detail, so planning a destination wedding was a large leap of faith with me. I'm happy to say that Sherry happily answered each (probably hundreds) of my emails and worked very hard to make my vision come true. We had never seen the site before, only through pictures, so we visited a few months before the wedding. She set up a mock reception table and showed me all the decor I wanted and more vintage items the Inn owns that I could rent for use as well if I liked. She also had the chef do a tasting for us for our reception meal, Chef Ryan was great! When wedding day came, Sherry, the owner Mark, and their staff, pulled everything together to have the most perfect wedding I could have ever imagined. They did everything from placing our sand ceremony, place cards, and guestbook out, to adding a couple extra last minute needs at no cost when I decided I needed them, such as a shoe basket and sign at the end of the boardwalk. One of the staff even held my train the whole way to the ceremony so that none of my guests had to miss the processional. The owner Mark even came up during the weekend and offered to bring some baby stuff from his home such as a bouncer and highchair to enteratin my little one, which was so sweet and helpful! I could go on and on, but it was perfect, the location was beautiful, the set up couldn't have been better, and I thank them so much!! We are blessed that Sherry put up with me for a year with a smile the whole way.If you want a Emerald Coast Wedding, Highlands is PERFECT!!

Our wedding weekend was unbelievable due to the hard work of Ms. Sherry, Carley, Ryan, Mark, in addition to other staff. They all were so incredibly accommodating & gracious to us & our guests. Our guests, myself, & my husband (!!!) left feeling like we just watched a beautiful movie, but in fact, it was reality! We rented the house for the weekend & held everything here: welcome dinner, wedding day 5k run on the beach, breakfast in the cozy cafe for our guests Saturday morning, ceremony Saturday evening, & beach bonfire Saturday night. The house has so much space & character with great proximity to shops, beach, in addition to other condos & cottages, which was beyond convenient for our 100 guests whom traveled to our wedding. Our guests had a great time relaxing on the porch & deck on the chairs & playing bags/cornhole.
The Highlands House is such a great value & I cannot emphasize enough how great the entire staff is. The food is unbelievable & all of our guests loved it.
We highly highly recommend Highlands House for any event & weekend getaways. We cannot wait to come back for anniversary trips!

Our Valentine’s wedding at the Highlands House turned out to be a complete success! The house itself is a bed and breakfast and has a very charming, vintage, old Florida feel. The owner of the house, the planner Sherry Graziani, as well as all of the staff, were friendly, helpful and couldn’t do enough to make sure our stay and wedding were perfect! We felt very well taken care of. Chef Ryan McNay, the head chef of the house, and Chef Tommy Nocito prepared fabulous breakfasts for guests of the house each morning of our stay, and truly exceeded expectations on the wedding night dinner with hot, beautifully prepared plates for each guest; all the food came out quickly and tasted great. rooms was clean, spacious and very charmingly decorated, the vintage décor made for some really great photographs. We are very grateful that we decided to choose the Highlands House on 30A as our wedding venue; this gorgeous house and its wonderful staff were integral to making sure that our wedding went smoothly and beautifully, and we are sure to remember this special event with joy forever!

Sherry, Mark, and the rest of the staff at Highlands House bent over forwards, backwards, and sideways to make sure that my wedding was the best day of my life, and it was! They made sure that the grounds were in perfect shape for the tent and all the festivities before the wedding. They also made sure every guest was accommodated as we rented the entire house. While I did not use their coordinating services, they were still very involved to make sure everything ran smoothly and on-site during the event. The house and lawn are really a unique gem on 30A for weddings. From the initial site visit to leaving for our honeymoon, I was very happy with my selection to use this venue. The guests were also very happy with the location. Parking was not an issue, the beach was just down the boardwalk, and guests could sit on the front porch and watch the waves. It was perfect! Thank you for a wonderful wedding!
