Most relaxing vacation we've had in years! This historic hotel, built in the Frank Lloyd Wright-style on the summit of Flat Top Mountain, is just a few minutes from downtown Highlands, but offers unsurpassed service, food, and views at an incredibly reasonable price. The 4300 foot elevation of the hotel enables stunning sunrise and sunset views from the restaurant patio and covered deck. Mary Jo and other hotel associates made us feel welcome throughout our stay. Since the hotel has an entire pet-friendly wing, we brought our border collie with us. The restaurant food was delicious, and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Our room was spotless and well appointed with a large flat screen TV, cable channels galore, desk, and free wi-fi. We had a lovely sunset view of the courtyard, jacuzzi and deck. The pool was sparkling clean and uncrowded. Other recreational opportunities abound, with tennis courts, stocked fish pond, hiking trails, and horse shoe pits on the grounds (tennis rackets,fishing poles, and hiking staffs available at the front desk at no charge.) One of the hiking trails leads to a private 45 ft tall waterfall and trout stream. The resort also has a beautiful wedding deck and arbor with lovely mountain views right next to the restaurant - the perfect spot for a small wedding. My girlfriend and I agreed that we'd like to get married here one day. Mature chestnut oak and other huge hardwood trees surrounding the hotel promise spectacular fall colors. We cannot wait to visit the best kept secret in Highlands again soon.
