I went to tour Highland Lake for a potential wedding venue. It was nice, but clearly old and probably needs some renovating. The staff were wonderful and accommodating, but we decided on somewhere else.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Thank you for sharing your feedback on your visit with us on your potential wedding and congratulations on your engagement. We take great pride in retaining the rich history of our property while we continually update and improve each facility to keep the original character of each facility while ensuring all modern amenities and professional services are available to each of our guests. The 10,000 square foot Grand Ole Hall reception hall was once an open air gymnasium from 1955 – 1985 during the time it was occupied by the Catholic diocese. During that ownership, the Grand Ole Hall was utilized for many camp activities for Our Lady of the Hills camp. Before that, it got great use as a historic part of the Carolina Military Academy….it is indeed quite old with a rich history…it is also lovingly and continually maintained by our professional staff who have been doing it for over 16 years. Over that time, we have hosted hundreds of events with delighted new couples and their guests, along with large corporate groups, who have danced on its rich wooden floors, dined with views out into the fields, lake and organic gardens and partied into the night with live bands playing on its stage. Thanks so much for your visit. We would love the opportunity to host you on one of your anniversaries so you can dine in our award-winning on-site restaurant Season’s or stay in one of our 53 rooms or cottages across our 26 acres on a private lake. I think you might then realize more that old can also be delightful when served up with professionalism and full-service amenities.

Pros: Decent price ... exceptional customer service from staff we dealt with. The food was exceptional, the buffet breakfast was top notch. The area was beautiful and while dated was not without it's charm. Cons: Facilities are in need of repair, upgrade or preventative maintenance. The watercraft for the lake (kayaks, canoes and paddle boats) are in pretty rough shape ... as is the dock. The HVAC for the room we stayed in (Woodward House) was zoned and while the sitting area outside the upstairs rooms was nice and cool the room was muggy. The AC went off about 9:00 and started blowing warm air out the vent. Bathroom is in need of repairs from the shower rod to the valve seats in the facets. We didn't use the pool but it appeared to be quite nice. We were going to look into the bicycles but as we found none and after seeing the conditions of the boats ... we just decided not to pursue it. Would I recommend it? Most likely ... might even give it another try. Strictly for the staff and food ... and area. Just needs an infusion of repairs, more proactive maintenance and up keep. The Grand Hall isn't so grand anymore.

Thank you for the review. We sincerely appreciate your kind words regarding our staff and top notch breakfast buffet! We would like to apologize for the maintenance issues you experienced during your stay. We have carefully reviewed each and every item you listed and have already begun making improvements. The curtain rod and facet valve seats in the room you stayed in have been repaired. We have also ordered all new parts for our complimentary boats. Our bikes are stored at our front office and can be checked out at the desk for complimentary use throughout a guests stay. It is our hope that this experience will not deter you from visiting us again. We would love for you to give us another chance at a wonderful stay. It’s feedback such as yours that help us drive to exceed the expectations for each and every one of our guests. We appreciate your business and hope to have you back soon!
