Love this place. Our third trip. Centrally located to so many great things to do in the WNC area: Lake Lure, Dupont Forest, Sliding Rock, Asheville. Its a beautiful compound with a great swimming pool, great little lake, gardens, goats, sheep, turkeys. We stayed in one of the poolside cottages, the Periwinkle cottage. Lovely. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Pet... More

We stayed in cabins that once were camp cabins but we had every needed amenity and it was great. Some areas of the facility were in need of restoration but the overall experience was reminiscent of summer camp. We tried to do it all! The breakfast was outstanding! Made us wish we had taken all meals there! What a fantastic... More

We stayed at the Highland Lake Inn & Resort just last week for a long weekend. We had originally booked a cabin and were upgraded to a cottage due to a mix up on our reservation. Everything about this place is amazing! Beautiful gardens, trails to walk on, hammocks to lounge on, wood swings hanging from giant trees. My children... More

Highland Lake is a perfect place for taking the grandkids! I needed to get my daughter's 3 kids away for a few days and Highland lake is a perfect location. Only 30 minutes from Greenville, South Carolina so we got to spend time enjoying the area and not spending time cooped up in a car traveling. Since check-in time is... More

We just returned from a weekend at Highland Lake Resort. (me, husband, and kids age 8 and 10) We stayed at the Lodge. Our room was okay - a bit dated, dark and small but immaculately clean with good AC and had a mini fridge for our leftovers. (TV was really small but who cares? We weren't there to watch... More

Relaxing mountain property perfect for a getaway, family reunion, retreat or function. Small pool, hammocks, swings, spacious green area, pavilion, all great for a family gathering. We stayed in the Woodward House one night, it was particularly special. We had room #2 which had it's own deck and chairs. Gorgeous house with sitting areas and porches. Even a large kitchen...

Loved the property. So many activities at no charge - a nice lake, farm animals, a white peacock. A big pool. Pool table and other activities in the lodge. Historic cottages are quaint. Staff is very helpful. Great for families.

Wonderful place for family or couples. We've been visiting there for 15 years. Love staying in their Woodward House! Season's Restaurant is delicious or you can take a short car ride to Flat Rock Bakery. Flat Rock is a historic little village with beautiful estate hidden off of HWY 225.

We stayed at the resort for a small conference (about 40 of us) and it was excellent. The rustic, small room was perfect, the setting is beautiful but simple, the grounds are well kept, the food was excellent and the service top notch. We drove 13 hours to attend this conference and we were very pleased with the resort. If... More

We spent three nights here--two in a cabin and one in the Woodward House. We found the Woodward House attractive and loved the huge porch/deck outside our room (#1). However, the room was very small, the TV was tiny and we thought it a bit expensive as a result. The cabin rooms were much more casual but were priced accordingly.... More

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. Each season offers guests something special, something unique, which beckons exploration. 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
