We have been around this area several times but never stayed here. It was a great visit. Room was a nice size with a fireplace. Homey furnishings and comfortable. Bathroom is a little out dated but was fine. Located in flat rock not far from Hendersonville there are plenty of restaurants within a few miles. The hotels restaurant closes as...

Peaceful and beautiful with great staff and first class accommodations. Restaurant served variety of food with efficient and cheerful wait staff. Our room was spacious and luxurious. The lake and benches offered the opportunity for quiet walks and contemplation. Locale is beautiful in the fall, even though by November 14 when we were there the leaves were past their peak....

Beautiful property, excellent restaurant and staff are friendly and courteous. Cottages a bit dated. I understand it is supposed to be a bit rustic, but the cottage we stayed in just seemed somewhat dilapidated.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We’re delighted to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful property and our excellent restaurant.

This is one of the most beautiful, serene places at which I have had the opportunity to stay. The rooms are gorgeous. The people are thoughtful and kind. The surrounding area has a lake on which one can paddleboat. Lots of places to walk without the noise of the world interfering. I would stay more but it is very expensive...

This is a great place that will take you back in time. You'll either appreciate the simplicity/old school nature or hate it. The grounds are wonderful and the people who worked there were helpful. I wasn't able to eat at the restaurant. I would stay there again.

This is the sixth year in a row that my wife and I have celebrated Thanksgiving at Highland Lake Inn--so that should tell you something! We even brought another couple with us this year.

56 years of being married has a lot to be thankful for and is deserving of a nice celebration at a nice place. Highland Lake Inn & Resort qualifies for such an event. Yes, it is a little old in comparison to motels and hotels, but, that is what gives it the "charm" of being different and more laid back...

We stayed here for 2 nights with a two kids, 13 and 10. Great area for them to play in, as well as enjoying canoes. Restaurant very good, but pricey. Cabins clean but somewhat outdated. Bikes were not in good shape and we couldn't ride them. Beautiful setting among very tall trees.

The grounds and the breakfast are extremely nice. The rooms and cabins are a little out dated and needed to be remodeled. They were clean and served the purpose but seemed expensive. We had a fun bike ride around the property (Resort has bikes to borrow) and really enjoyed the hammocks and swings. The entire staff was extremely helpful and...

This was our first stay at Highland Lakes Inn ...it won't be our last. There just aren't all that many places to stay set on 27 acres...where you may use paddle boats or canoes on the house. Where there are homes, motel type units, or rooms in an inn type setting. Where you get a real breakfast, served by real...

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
