Overview of Skyline Lodge

Skyline Lodge

A Mountaintop Retreat

Serenely situated on a mountain-top in Highlands, North Carolina, The Skyline Lodge already knows why you are here. Steeped in the design of Frank Lloyd Wright, there is a palpable sense of place. Through the entry, your curiosity awakens at the first look of a beautifully arranged and whimsical courtyard. Enjoying a sip of arrival drink and smoky
baked oyster, you release your luggage and explore. A slight breeze carries the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, clinking glasses, and soft laughter through the mountain air. The smell of steak on the Oak Highlands Steakhouse grill wafts from the restaurant stacks. Twinkling lights beckon you to come and see the view. Onto the lawn, soft blankets draped across lawn chairs encircle fire pits. With all your senses engaged, an energizing relief overtakes you and you know…
You will be taken care of at The Skyline Lodge.

“My business partner, Larry Spelts, and I could not be more excited to be involved in the world-class destination that the Highlands and Cashiers area has become. I am a native Georgian and Larry is a South Carolinian, and we both have enjoyed the Highlands-Cashiers area our entire lives—we are thrilled to serve and be involved with the plateau and continue the legacy of Skyline Lodge.
