I booked this hotel for a visit to Highlands in October. The drive to Highlands was beautiful, but the Skyline Lodge was a big disappointment. In fact, we got little sleep due to a corporate party that was taking place. This group of loud, rude, so-called professionals did too much drinking and had no consideration for other guests. Unfortunately, the... More

I have always wanted to stay here because I love the area and the prices for other lodging is so much higher, plus I like staying off the beaten path. I had average expectations after reading previous reviews. Our first impression was checking in -- it seemed like we stunned the girl at the front desk by showing up and... More

Very rustic but elegant hotel with surprising 5 star Chef! A hidden treasure. Am afraid this review may ruin my ability to get a great room at a great price, just outside Highlands, NC!! Can hear the waterfall out our room and from our balcony!!

The location of the property is nice and the food for dinner and breakfast was truly great, but the room we had was terrible. Run down and extremely musty. Not good, especially if you have allergies and asthma like myself. Sheets were like sandpaper, tons of crickets in the room, and the hot water took forever to run. A shame... More

I'm not much for sitting around and relaxing. I'd rather bike, hike and explore. Skyline Lodge changed that. What an incredible setting. Perched on a mountain in an old-growth forest of pines and hardwoods. The tranquility puts everyone in a similar mood. Time slowed down but never went away. Every minute was peaceful. The staff was welcoming and addressed us... More

Beautiful views, great staff and very well priced! Loved the breakfast basket each morning and the trails surrounding the lodge are great for an easy morning hike. Skyline is the perfect place for a weekend getaway out of the city!

Such a beautiful place. Very peaceful and so relaxing.....We loved it. The staff was so friendly. Well worth the short drive from town. We felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. Planning another visit to stay longer.

Most relaxing vacation we've had in years! This historic hotel, built in the Frank Lloyd Wright-style on the summit of Flat Top Mountain, is just a few minutes from downtown Highlands, but offers unsurpassed service, food, and views at an incredibly reasonable price. The 4300 foot elevation of the hotel enables stunning sunrise and sunset views from the restaurant patio... More

You get what you pay for... sometimes. We spent our wedding anniversary at the Skyline Restaurant. It was just perfect. Secluded, not cowed, clean, nice people. Mary Jo at the front desk was welcoming and chatty... in a charming way. Helpful in getting us to our room and giving us ideas on things to do and stuff to see. The... More
