To be honest, I expected a lot more for what we paid ($159) to stay for one night in a duplex cabin. The room was smaller than most hotel rooms, the bed was small and very wobbly, the bathroom was ok, but for the shower to be SO dark with a floor to ceiling shower curtain and a shower head... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last fall for a relaxing vacation and were very pleased! We stayed in the older building, was very quiet for the most part (except a drunk guy lost in the hallway one night, some creaky doors/floors). The room was beautiful and comfortable. Our stay was reasonably priced, considering we got a fantastic breakfast every... More

Thank you so much for sharing you stay with us last fall. You are correct "the grounds are worth the trip".

we recently spent a weekend here at Woodward House. Though there were over 25 guests in the house and two family reunions there was no sense of being in a crowd, and it was very quiet when we were in our room. The restaurant food was exquisite, seasoned with fresh vegetables and herbs. Presentation was very creative. Cool in July!... More

We stayed in the Lodge for a last minute summer getaway. Definitely on our list for a return visit. We enjoyed the property immensely, the gardens, the chickens, the goats, and kayaking on the lake! The staff were all very friendly, and the complementary breakfast buffet at Seasons was delicious!

What an amazing weekend we had staying at the Boathouse! The house was perfect for my girlfriends and I. The house was neatly decorated, very cozy, and had everything we needed.

We used the Inn for a family reunion in June 2015. We rented the entire lodge, which meant that our family had sole use of the Great Room and Porch. Our kids loved playing in the game room.

The great: the property, the walking, the lake, the beauty! The other great: the restaurant attached to the property. I suggest a reservation--the food was excellent, the best in the area, I think, with (appropriate) live music, too, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls looking out on all that nature.

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.

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
