My wife and I are just back from a four night stay at The Highland Lake Inn Bed and Breakfast and want to share our enthusiasm for the Inn and its host and hostess. The house is charming, as was our room. The breakfast was delicious (fresh fruits, farm-fresh eggs, locally baked goods and excellent preserves) served in a lovely room with beautiful views of the surrounding meadows and a glimpse of the lake. The lake itself is clear and gorgeous, the swimming at the nearby beach was great. Our host and hostess, Pecco and Gail, could not have been warmer. They were extremely helpful in accommodating all our needs and directing us to points of interest and activities in the area (we spent five fascinating hours at the Shaker Village in Canterbury). We thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories and laughs with them over the course of our stay.
