We spent a lot of time thinking about where we wanted our special day to be and considered many different options. We wanted a venue that was unique, accessible to our guests, and somewhere that would maximize our time together throughout the weekend.
We're were thrilled when we found the Skyline Lodge in Highlands, North Carolina. We had the chance to spend a weekend at the venue and were impressed with the quality of the accommodations, staff and of course, food and drink. Some of our other favorite things about the venue and hotel are the surroundings, privacy, pet-friendly policy, and modern mountain vibes. We believe it will be the perfect place for a weekend spent together celebrating with our closest friends and family.
All hotel rooms at Skyline Lodge will be reserved for our guests.

Located in the popular and picturesque mountain town of Highlands, North Carolina, the building’s storied history dates back to the mid-1930s, when it opened as a luxury escape catering to the wealthy who survived the 1929 stock market crash. The lodge’s original owner, Howard Randall, commissioned Arthur Kelsey – a working student and friend of the iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright – to design the building, resulting in signature FLW touches like native stone, chestnut wood, and hand-cut cedar shakes. Despite its one-of-a-kind design and great popularity as one of the only places to stay overnight in the increasingly popular destination of Highlands, the lodge closed its doors in 1938 following the death of Mr. Randall.
Luckily, in the 1950s, it was rescued from disrepair, and by the 1960s was welcoming back guests with additional rooms and a much needed update to the structure. More than 80 years after its original construction, the lush greenery has flourished and now completely surrounds the lodge, exemplifying the Wright design tradition of architecture slowly becoming one with the natural environment. Today, Skyline Lodge, with its storied history, is newly reopened by Indigo Road Hospitality Group, which extensively renovated the property before reopening in summer 2021.
