Stayed here to visit friends and to escape the August heat in Florida. This is a well maintained piece of property. Great lobby with some nice antiques (or reproductions). Loved the gas fired fireplace in our room. Yes, I did light it to see if it worked, and it did. Enjoyed the balcony outside our room. Breakfast was pretty slim... More

The room was solid; tidy and clean though very slightly in need of paint and touch ups, hard floors (a major plus!), easy access to main street (walkable if you choose), and the best part--it's dog friendly! There are only a few rooms which allow dogs, and I was pleasantly surprised to find ours like no dog had been there.... More

For those who may not know, this was a Hilton property prior to being taken private. Can't remember which brand of Hilton, but rooms are standard Hilton style rooms. Fireplace room are larger and a fireplace in Highlands is recommended any time of year. At 4118 feet, summer nights can be chilly ... I have stayed here many time prior... More

We love Highlands and have been going there for several years as often as we can. This was a very excellent inn. The staff was extremely friendly, the grounds are beautiful, very comforting to walk around.

This lodge is just a little off the beaten path. It is quiet and peaceful. The lobby is furnished with some awesome antiques but you won't find it stuffy. We found the outdoor fireplace and wanted to start a fire...the desk clerk found some old matches and said go for it. So we did and it was a delightful evening.... More

We were passing through Highlands and stopped for the night. Just needed a decent place to crash and shower, but was very surprised. This place is beautiful. It was clean and the staff was awesome. The front desk clerk spent time helping find fun things for my teenagers to do. She even printed directions to several places for us. The... More

Patio rooms force you to wake up with sun. But the suites have sleeper sofas so an extra child has somewhere to sleep. The tubs are huge and my two year old loved it. Breakfast has cows milk and cereal, bagels, muffins, frozen sausage sandwiches, juice, ok coffee, waffles, fruit. Fine place to stay in Highlands. Across the street from... More

Upon entering the hotel I was greeted by friendly staff, they really made me feel at home! The room looked very modern and updated, with a HUGE TV. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and fireplace. The breakfast had a wide variety, and a short 5 minute walk to mainstreet. Overall our experience was great!

Recently stayed at the Lodge and LOVED it! We stayed in one of the suites and it was awesome! The Jacuzzi tub in the room was great! Fits three grown men comfortably! The staff was INCREDIBLE and accommodated every last one of our many, many requests! This is hands down the only place i'll stay in Highlands!
