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...

This place is very beautiful, has variety of places to stay on the grounds, some are pet friendly. The breakfast buffet is amazing and worth the price. The main issue we had was with the wifi, you can typically connect to it but it never works. Multiple calls to the office when we would try to use it but it...

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. And how homey, cozy and warm. HOWEVER, the bed in room 10 in the Woodward house is almost unsleepable. The carpets are worn and stained. The door to...

There are areas for conferences, motel style for family gathering, and smaller cottages at Highland Lake. We have stayed in one of the cottages at Highland Lake Inn. We felt cozy with the patchwork quilts, warm fire and rocking chairs. However, we often go for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. It is close enough that we also go for...

The staff at Highland Lake Inn are simply wonderful! They are always very accommodating and helpful in assuring a good stay at their property.

We have been around this area several times but never stayed here. It was a great visit. Room was a nice size with a fireplace. Homey furnishings and comfortable. Bathroom is a little out dated but was fine. Located in flat rock not far from Hendersonville there are plenty of restaurants within a few miles. The hotels restaurant closes as...

Peaceful and beautiful with great staff and first class accommodations. Restaurant served variety of food with efficient and cheerful wait staff. Our room was spacious and luxurious. The lake and benches offered the opportunity for quiet walks and contemplation. Locale is beautiful in the fall, even though by November 14 when we were there the leaves were past their peak....

Beautiful property, excellent restaurant and staff are friendly and courteous. Cottages a bit dated. I understand it is supposed to be a bit rustic, but the cottage we stayed in just seemed somewhat dilapidated.

This is one of the most beautiful, serene places at which I have had the opportunity to stay. The rooms are gorgeous. The people are thoughtful and kind. The surrounding area has a lake on which one can paddleboat. Lots of places to walk without the noise of the world interfering. I would stay more but it is very expensive...

This is a great place that will take you back in time. You'll either appreciate the simplicity/old school nature or hate it. The grounds are wonderful and the people who worked there were helpful. I wasn't able to eat at the restaurant. I would stay there again.

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
