Great Property Awesome People

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this property. Gwen and Bob were fantastic hosts. They took the time to get to know us and shared their insights and stories with my inquisitive 'City Slicker' kids. They just loved every minute of their stay and my wife and I felt very relaxed after our stay. A great place to stay Summer or Winter. Highly recommended.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time, especially the kids. They were able to roam around looking at the animals, collecting eggs, riding bikes (already on the property), playing in the playground etc.

Being only 15mins from town and 40mins from ski fields meant this stay had everything. That's no mean feat when you're travelling with 5 kids aged from 18mths to 11 years.

Incredible hosts and lovely farmstay

  • 5 of 5

My 5 friends and I had such a great time staying at Highland Lodge this year on our 4 day snow trip. We thought the room was great value and a very comfortable size however it was everything else on the property that made our trip so memorable! We will definitely be back. Thanks Gwen! We enjoyed the Discovery Trail and all the animals.
