I'm 22 years old and I stayed in room 107 with my parents for two nights. We were up for a wedding at a hotel down the street, but there were no more rooms available there, so we received a suggestion to stay here and I am SO happy we got the opportunity to stay here. I prefer this hotel... More

We were on our way to Storyland when our car radiator finally decided to give up. We were stranded in Bridgeton without a vehicle (all rental places closed by then). After our car was towed to a shop, the shop owner, being an incredible guy, recommended this place. When we arrived Woody even gave us a small discount seeing the... More

We found this hotel online in a bit of a panic when we realized upon late arrival that the lake cabin we rented had no heat during 45 degree weather. Woody, the owner, was so nice, he called us right back after leaving a message and got up to check us in a 4am. The place has a bit of... More

We needed a place to sleep and have a hot shower, the only thing this place was, was clean, room decor looked like it all came from a yard sale, the bed was like sleeping on rocks, the shower was STONE COLD, a room for 4 people, 1 tiny mirror in the bathroom, none in the main room, boiler ran...

Wow. I am so sorry you didn't have a good stay. I was never told about any of these problems that weekend, so I can only guess on some of them. I know that our guests tell me that they love our "immediate" hot water (we have a circulator running to bring hot water to the faucets within seconds), and... More

We stayed at the Highland Lake Resort in the Deluxe 2 room suite for 2 days while visiting Maine. The overall experience was great. No major issues. The hotel is well maintained for it's age and it's pretty clear that the owner cares about upkeep. There are some rough edges but there are also signs of repairs and upgrades being... More

I've been coming to the Bridgton/Naples area for 40 years. When my family and I decided to stay at the Highland Lake Resort back in 2001, we realized immediately we'd found our home away from home. We've been coming back every year since. The owner, Woody, is a great (and funny) guy who is always making improvements to the rooms.... More

Horrible experience!! Rooms were very outdated. Musty and stale, clothes ended up smelling like the rooms. Sign above sink, stating $250 charge if didn't wash dishes. Mold growing in another families shower and host was extremly unaccomodating, not available to discuss situation after he received our cash for a two night minimum stay and over charged us by $40 from...

Well, I was threatened by the bridal party this past weekend with bad reviews if I didn't allow them to keep their loud music on till "10 or 11", and I see that at least one of their friends has done so. This review is obviously SO far in left field that you can see why many businesses hate the... More

A truly "magical" place to stay. Friendly and jovial host who has a delicious sense of humour! Woody made us so welcome. Excellent room. Wonderful setting and the opportunity to canoe could not be wasted. Also close to golf course where again we were made most welcome. Sorry we broke the coffee machine

So nice to have someone visit with a similar sense of the absurd. Even if you DID break the coffee maker! (Actually, I was able to fix the minor problem, so please don't feel guilty.) Thank you for joining us from so far away. Meeting people from other countries is just one of the benefits of owning a lodging property.... More

Always glad to have you both visit here for your summer vacation. We truly appreciate those who make their trip to Highland Lake an annual tradition. We've had people visiting with us since we bought the property in 1997, and are happy that people are starting their "new" traditions all the time. See you next year! More

Clean rooms fun trip for the family. Wifi was free. And use of paddle boat was fun. Lots to do in area and nice people all around. I found the staff at the hotel very kind and helpful. We met people that have been going to this resort for 40 years.
