After spending a lovely Christmas at Highland Lake we came back to experience summer at this restful resort. Booked three rooms and this time we brought our dog so my husband and I stayed in one of the cabins which was rustic, but clean and well appointed and close to the pool and restaurant. My mother-in-law stayed in a handicap...

They call themselves rustic and out of the way. It is rustic but also old. The most problematic part of this is for those like my wife and I was they are not handicap compliant. We had a very disappointing stay of two nights. The biggest problem was parking. The restaurant is good/expensive. They have a handicap drop off spot....

This is an oasis in the mountains. Very secluded and quiet. I've only stayed in the Lodge.Once upstairs and once downstairs because the steps to upstairs are too hard to climb for us older folks. The Woodward House would be very nice also. The Seasons restaurant on the premises is worth the trip in itself.The breakfast provided for residents of...

We went here for our family vacation. There are multiple lodging options. We stayed in the cabin rooms (rented a small and large so that we had the whole thing to ourselves). The rooms were not fancy, but very clean with comfortable beds. Right in front of our cabin were 2 swings and 2 hammocks and a huge yard for...

We stopped over for one night at this resort. It is a lovely, idyllic spot where you can unplug and enjoy nature. I would recommend paying more to stay in one of their better rooms - we stayed in one of the cabins and it was a little too rustic for us but the lodge rooms look more comfortable. But,...

Amazing and restful experience. We checked in late and experienced true "southern hospitality." The warm welcome made us feel at home. Thank you Highland Lake Inn.

We stayed here for a family reunion and what a great place to stay!! We sat on the porches and visited with a glass of wine in the afternoons and with coffee in the mornings. The dinners were great and the breakfast buffet was excellent. You can't go wrong staying here.

We stayed in a rustic cabin room this time (very small, with aged wood paneling - cozy) but with updated bathroom, a/c, fridge & coffeemaker.

This unique property started its life in 1789 and has lived as a Victorian club, a naval academy, a convent and a summer camp before becoming the resort that it is now. It is decidedly rustic, but it has a charm all its own. I have only been in a few rooms in the Lodge, but they were roomy and...
