We live in Hendersonville and chose Highland Lake Inn Grand Ole Hall for our daughter's wedding. What a wonderful choice it was! Kim, Kasi, Robin, and all the other staff were wonderful to work with and took very good care of us during the planning process and over the course of the weekend. We had guests from all over the...

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.

We stayed in the Mountain Air Suite and although it was dated it was a wonderful room. The room was quaint, we loved the fireplace. We ate dinner at Season's and yes it was expensive, but it was top notch food! The breakfast that was included with our stay was very good as well. We stayed for our 17th wedding...

Lodge is old, quaint, and quiet. Not a lot available to do during winter months but this was just to get away and relax. The restaurant was great food, but very expensive. $30 for steak dinner and $6 for a side salad and $9 for a slice of cheesecake. Breakfast is free if you stay in the lodge but if...

Common areas are a huge addition to the lodge and Woodward House. Having a complete kitchen if you want to cook, available to any guest, almost makes this a 4+ star review.

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
