Stayed at the Highland Lake & Resort for two nights in early October, and was pleasantly surprised. The lodge is where we stayed and the only complaint was the rooms could use some updating. The breakfast was included, and was excellent. The staff was great, no problems. The area is beautiful and would definitely stay again.

We loved this place for its mix of camp-like AND luxury setting, its proximity to Carl Sandburg House, town of Hendersonville, Apple Alley, etc. and for the exquisite food. Loved the basil microgreens topping on one dish and could eat a small bowl-full. Also enjoyed walking the large property, seeing lush garden in summer and swimming in large outdoor pool...

The Woodward House and the cabins are a few of our favorite places to stay as well! Although we love every option we have to offer of course! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and also your yummy breakfast at Season's...isn't it divine? We hope you will come "relax" with us again soon.

Highland Lakes Inn and Resort is a very beautiful site with lovely hiking areas. We were there for a family wedding and there was a lot of space for group activities. Our room was large and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and the food at the restaurant was delicious. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again...

We stayed at Highland Lake Inn & Resort for three nights, for my wife's birthday. We stayed in the Woodward House and ate breakfast and one dinner at Seasons. Everything -- the room, the food, the grounds -- was quite nice. We especially enjoyed just being able to stroll around the property and walk on the paths. Highly recommended.

Would not stay here ever again. Not worth the price. Amenities are not up to par. If you want to go back to 1975 where nothing has been updated since then this is the place for you. If you're going to spend the price of a 5 star resort for a 1 star property then look elsewhere. So disappointed.

To say the lodge is rustic is an understatement. The place needed renovating 30 years ago so you can imagine what it looks like today. Trust me - take your money and business elsewhere. One caveat - the food in the restaurant is amazing - some of the best I have ever had. In short - eat here. Sleep somewhere...
