Stayed at Highland Lake Inn last October with Sally. Recalling that trip and writing this note makes me want to return. Pecco and Gail were so gracious and interesting, you couldn't imagine better hosts. The old house was beautiful, with just the right amount of modern upgrades to make it very comfortable without losing any of its original charm. Besides wonderful breakfasts, there was the optional dinner courtesy of Pecco, trained as a chef in Europe. Delicious, with interesting dinner companions from many distant locations. Rural New Hampshire is like another (better) planet. It was just starting to get cold, and we new the beautiful first snowfall was coming soon, but we had to leave. Highly recommended.
