Verified reviewexcellent

The lodge and the staff were everything that we expected. It was an absolute pleasure to stay with Highlands Lodge. The peace and quiet is beyond anything one can experience easily for the amount of money charged per night's stay. It is worth every cent and I will - and look forward to - visiting them soon again!
