For years ours our family has been going to the Highland Lake Inn for our annual Family Reunion. Couldn`t have had a better time. Everyone is very cordial and accommodating. In review of the history of the place I wanted to mention that in the 70`s and 80`s I knew this place as Our Lady of the Hills Catholic Camp....

The setting is lovely, quiet, allowing you plenty to do or to do. The grounds are pleasant for walking. The location is near charming Hendersonville, but you are also "away from it all." All the staff are kind. The layout and accommodations in Woodward are a bit quirky, but thoughtfully decorated, roomy, and comfortable. The deck with two wooden rockers...

We stayed here for two nights as we wanted to visit the Biltmore Estate but did not want to stay in Ashville. Lovely location and the property is beautiful. We stayed in a small cabin as we had our dog with us so accommodation choice was limited. The cabin was fine but the walls were extremely thin and we could...

This time, it was just a two night occasion while in mountains for other reasons. We had a large cabin with gas-fired fireplace, which we enjoyed very much. And, of course, the fabulous buffet breakfasts.

We've celebrated Thanksgiving at Highland Lake Inn for the past 6 years. We have stayed in the little cabins as well as the Lodge and like both. They have the feel of N.C. mountain properties that I remember as a child (and love!). Comfortable, yet clean, with updated accommodations. The spacious grounds are so nice and well-maintained for taking walks...

This is our third trip to the Inn. We were at a wedding and we have previously done 2 family gatherings here. It's casual, comfortable, has a great breakfast, and a helpful efficient staff. Not fancy but comfortable beds and nice size rooms with a lot of different accommodations.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since the early 1900s-when a group of visionary gentleman from the South Carolina low-country founded Highland Lake Club-the land that now comprises Highland Lake Inn & Resort has been attracting visitors looking for rest, relaxation and recreation. Set amid 26 scenic wooded lakeside acres in Western North Carolina, perhaps no other destination in Western North Carolina combines an authentic mountain experience with such an array of amenities and services. Each season offers guests something special, something unique, which beckons exploration. Our guests enjoy full access to our on-site amenities that will satisfy or exceed the expectations your family, group, or significant other. We pride ourselves on a unique brand of service-that's both anticipatory and responsive-to make sure you and your company enjoy everything we have to offer. Our amenities include dining at our award-winning Season's Restaurant; exploring our 26 wooded-acres either on foot or riding our complimentary bikes; discovering the 40-acre lake by fishing from the dock (catch-and-release) or boating using our complimentary canoes, kayaks and paddleboats; staying outdoors enjoying our swimming pool (Memorial Day - Labor Day), volleyball, tennis, horseshoes and badminton; heading inside to our family game room for pool, ping pong and foosball; or, relaxing with an in-room massage. ... more   less
