This is one of the few places I've stayed that surpassed my expectations based on the website photos. Don't get me wrong - it is definitely old-school, sort of early 60s style, and not high end, but we enjoyed the quirky charm. And the more we looked around, the more impressed I was. The room was quite comfortable, with a... More

Skyline has always been our favorite place to stay when visiting Highlands. It's perfect for us when we are there on business. This year, we decided to sexend our stay for personal reasons and booked one of the cabins. They are fantastic! I highly recommend any of the cabins, as they are all unique in an individual way.

Really liked the location, restaurant, outdoor areas, staff very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean, bed very comfortable, fresh linens every day...but, the room had a very, very musty smell that we could not clear out even with door open & AC on. Not good for someone with allergies. Read the long history, which is very interesting, but it needs... More

Skyline Lodge is just wonderful. There are tons of woods and walking trails, and beautiful views. We stayed in the Eagles Nest, and it was just wonderful. The room was super big, with a good mixture of function and aesthetics. The balcony overlooking the wooded mountains and tasty complimentary coffee was a perfect moment. I would, and will, absolutely be... More

I love the feel of the Lodge! The property is beautiful. Great views of the mountains and a Waterfall below on the property. It is clean. The food at the restaurant was very good. People working were friendly. I feel that they need some serious investors to bring the property back to its former "Glory". It has enormous potential. It... More

Our honeymoon... After paying $200 for a room, we were expecting something quite nice. Our room, Eagle's Nest, was very outdated. The sheets had places on them and the hot water barely lasted 3 minutes for a shower. The check out lady apologized and the maintenance man said he didn't have a work order. Never again.
