The Paul and Dora are great people, my grandsons and I stayed in their cottage which was very nice, I have stayed in their motel off and on over the years, it is "always" well kept, and Dora and Paul are super people to go along with it.

We stayed for the week end to go atving. The owners had one request to respect their property and other guest. After seeing the pristine condition of the grounds and the cleanliness of the rooms the request was easy. Not exactly a atv resort due to the nature of the sport but the host Paul and Dora went out of... More

Myself and four friends stayed in the loft. It was beautiful. The people are lovely, the area is gorgeous and the rooms are outstanding. Waking up the sunlight everyday and beautiful scenery. I highly recommend anyone stay, family or friends! Great place.

I stayed at the Highlands motel this week and it was the third time I've been there. I can recommend this motel without reservation. The owners are wonderful hosts--friendly, helpful, welcoming and accomodating. The room I stayed in was quiet, quaint and comfortable, but particularly, it was immaculate. There's a kettle in the room to make tea (with real mugs--not... More

I stayed at the Inn in February for a week. The proprietors were a young couple who lived on site with their children. I felt at ease immediately upon meeting my hosts. The surrounding area looked very pretty when fresh snow covered the trees. I didn't have high expectations about quality because I was there for business, booked last minute... More

Don't be put off by the garish colours on the website or the animated graphics, this place is just PERFECT! Initially we just booked one night here but after checking into our room we soon confirmed a second. It's perfectly placed for Winterdance (about a 45 minute drive in snow) for the husky sleds. The room was nice and clean,... More

This is our 3rd annual weekend staying at the Highlands Motel while playing in the Minden Rockbuster curling bonspiel. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable and the owner/operators are wonderful people who go out of their way to ensure you have a very enjoyable stay. The "Lodge" entertainment room is terrific for relaxing and enjoying the company of friends... More
