My wife and I stayed again at the Highland Lake Inn B&B over the New Year's weekend. The Inn is as comfortable and attractive as ever, and the hospitality of Pecco and Gail is warm and welcoming. The new wrinkle is that the barn next to the Inn that used to be used for storage has now been transformed into a lovely event space. They had just added illuminated stars hanging from the beams, which swayed gently in the breeze from the heating system. We were pleased to attend the first New Year's party held there. A DJ provided music (at a volume level that permitted conversation!) and Pecco and other local chefs produced delicious food. After midnight, we adjourned to the outside for a fireworks display. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. If I weren't already married (for 42 years!), I would have to seriously consider this venue for a wedding.
I have stayed at this Inn several times, and have never had anything less than a wonderful time there.
