Mitchell’s Lodge & Cottages is celebrating its 75thseason this year!


What began in 1939 by Al Bolt’s Grandmother, Margaret "Peggy” Mitchell, as 2 cabins and a simple place to lay your head has become a tradition for so many families on their visit to Highlands. The ever familiar sign that hangs in our office, "Enter as Strangers and Leave as Friends” rings so true.


We’d like to extend our gratitude to all of our previous guests and hope that you help us celebrate 75 years of Hospitality.


For the month of September, Sunday – Thursday nights (9/9/14-10/2/14), choose one of the Fireplace Suites which were the 2 original cabins, built in 1939, on the property and are now part of the Log Lodge or a Deluxe Room in the Cedar Lodge for only $75 per night. 75 Years = $75 rate…. And, of course the cookies are always ready every afternoon at 4:00!


October brings cooler days and nights and of course the beautiful Fall foliage. Mitchell’s will continue our 75thAnniversary celebration into October by having nightly fires in the lobby, just as Peggy had for so many years, and S’mores, board games and just some great family time.


We consider you family and would love if you would share some of your stories, memories and pictures of your visits to Mitchell’s and Highlands through the years. We know you have pictures that you’ve cherished of all of the fun times spent here with us. So, from now through October 2nd we want you to post your stories, memories and pictures on our FACEBOOK page. We will also be doing the same everyday


Post your favorite pictures, stories and memories to our Facebook Page and you will be entered into a drawing for a free weekend or 2 nights of your choosing in the room, suite or cottage of your choice. Of course based on availability. Drawing will be held on 10/3/14 and will be posted on Mitchell’s Lodge & Cottages Face Book page.


Help us celebrate 75 Years of welcoming guests to Highlands!!!

And thank you for being such a big part of our lives over the years!
