January 2017 Newsletter


Happy New Year!! Welcome 2017! What a great year we had in 2016. We stayed so busy this previous year; we didn’t realize how quickly it was flying by. We predict this year will be even better! We were truly blessed to come out of the major drought with very little damage to the immediate Town of Highlands especially with all of the major wildfires we had burning all around us all Fall. Certain weekends are ALREADY booking up, especially those peak leaf color weekends in October. The leaves this fall were gorgeous and seemed to better because of the drought. We hope this fall will be just as beautiful. Not only have we been staying busy at the Lodge, the sidewalks of Highlands have been busy too. The warmer weather this Fall have kept the crowds around even with all of the wildfires and smoke around. This time of year may seem like there is not much to do. However, there is always something to do in Highlands.


You can enjoy a snow day at the Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center. With help from their machines, the outdoor center is a winter wonderland. They offer snow tubing for any age. They include 2 snow tubing slopes for adults and the other for smaller children. You can also show off your skills on their ice skating rink for a separate price. They also include an onsite restaurant with great food and a gift shop. Check out their website for prices and hours


The Kelsey- Hutchinson Park also includes an ice skating rink for only $5.00. The park is right in town. You can walk there from the lodge. This is a great workout after a large meal from one of our exquisite 5 star restaurants. Or put on some skates after a day of shopping. Just looking for something to do? Ice skating is a perfect downtime, especially for the whole family. The park is easy to get to whether you walk or drive.


If ice skating is not enough of a work out for you, switch up the seasons and go swimming at the Highlands Pool Complex. That’s right! The local pool is open year round. With their new retractable roof, the outdoor pool is now a heated indoor pool. They offer aerobic classes, lap swims, community swims, and even a great place to host a winter birthday party. Which child would not want a pool party in the middle of the winter!? For pool hours and scheduling, look up


Another fun, adventurous activity is zip lining! The Highlands Aerial Park is open year round (tentatively depending on the weather).  They offer different levels of zip lines, with one being 210 feet high and ¼ mile long. They also include a children’s course for those who are too young for the larger courses. For those who are terrified of heights, they have their chair swing to slowly conquer your fears. Reservations are required for the adult zip lining courses. Call 828-526-8773 or check out there website at


After a thrilling day in Highlands, wind down at the movies. The Highlands Playhouse shows today’s popular movies on their retractable movie screen. They ended 2016 with Will Smith’s “Collateral Beauty.” This month they will be showing movies like “La La Land,” “Manchester by the Sea,” and “The Founder.” You can see which movies are playing and show times on their website,


Don’t fight the Florida crowds this winter. Come relax in the mountains and snuggle by a fire with a rich cup of hot cocoa. Be the first of another successful year. With our rates already tremendously low, how about taking $10.00 off per weeknight for any room or cottage for the whole month of January!* Stay during the week for only $69.00 per night! Remember that this month includes a 3 day weekend for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. That means, there may be an even better special to come! Call us at 800.522.9874 to make your reservations.


Keep an eye on the radar for snow, or we can do it for you! Follow us on Facebook for any information and pictures of snow when it arrives. We also have our live cam straight off our website for those who don’t get to see the snow fall from home, or want to make a quick trip to the mountains to “play” in the snow. We also have a snow e-mail list to keep our guests informed when snow is in the forecast. If you are not on the snow list, simply respond to this e-mail.


Mitchell’s Lodge had an incredible year and we owe all of that to you! Our job and passion is to help you and your family have the best possible vacation in Highlands and we certainly hope that we lived up to our end of the bargain! We are thankful for all our guests that have stayed here throughout our 78 years. We can’t wait to see what our 79th season will bring. We hope each of you can be apart of the new season and we hope that we can always be a part of your family and your memories in Highlands!


From all of us at Mitchell’s Lodge and Cottages, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas Season and we wish you a great start to the New Year!
