We truly enjoyed our stay at the Highland Lake Inn and will recommend this hidden gem to our friends and relatives. Anyone looking for a relaxing visit to the NH countryside, would appreciate the location of this Inn. Restaurants and shops are minutes away, we also climbed Mt. Kearsarge (about 10 min away). A sandy lake beach is very close from the Inn, and is very private and picturesque. The activities were great, but the highlight of our stay was certainly the Inn itself. Our room had a very high-end feel, very comfortable and clean. The common areas are decorated with elegant furnishings, rugs, and an impressive collection of art. The overall feel of the space is very European... a nice compliment to the surrounding nature. Pecco and Gail are exceptional hosts, and are also very warm and good-humored. Their table presentation and quality of the breakfast far exceeded any expectations we had. We had a very pleasant stay and breakfast, and enjoyed the company of our hosts and their adorable well-behaved Niki and Jeter. We hope to return again soon.
