“Karen and her family were absolutely amazing and really went out of their way. We had the most amazing time at Highlands Lodge and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to stay in the area. We attended a wedding at an estate which was only 5 minutes away from the lodge,” wrote Candice Jansen on their TripAdvisor page.

My 11 year old daughter who is a picky eater enjoyed the personal touches at breakfast such as pancakes, omelets and quesadillas. Thanks for a great stay, we will be back in future!”
