February Newsletter


What a great start to the New Year! January has been a beautiful month here in Highlands. We received over a foot of snow about a week ago! The week before that we had some downright frigid temperatures that froze our pond. Our ducks have enjoyed the weather just as much as we have. Even with snow still on the ground, many restaurants, shops and boutiques have remained open this winter. Winter in Highlands is the best time for everyone of all ages to have some fun.


Be sure and "Like” us on Facebook. We post something almost daily. During all of the snow, we posted several times per day. So, don’t forget to "Like” us now.


Highlands has its own ice skating 1 block from Main Street. It is in Kelsey Hutchinson Park and is a fantastic place to hang out and learn to skate or practice for the Olympics. Well, maybe...If you don’t skate, watch everyone else while sipping a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. This is the best addition to Highlands and everyone needs  to check it out. They are scheduled to be open throughout February.


Did you also know that Highlands received a grant last year to enclose the Recreation Park’s swimming pool? Now you can swim year round. Along with their brand new weight room there is no reason not to stay active in Highlands in the winter.



If you come to Highlands to enjoy this Winter Wonderland, The Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center is the perfect place to visit. The Outdoor Center is just right down the road from Mitchell’s Lodge and Cottages. They offersnow tubing for the young and the young at heart, and also include an ice skating rink. Once you have worked up an appetite, they also serve great food at their onsite restaurant. For information on the different activities they include, view their website at




For the "brave at heart,” Sapphire Valley Resort offers, snow skiing, snow boarding, and also snow tubing. If this is not enough for you, they also include a winter zipline course. There are plenty of activities to choose from if you go to the Sapphire Valley Resort. For information and session times, check out their website at




The Appalachian Mountains look dazzling this time of year. To get a great view of the frosted mountains, try ziplining at the Highlands Aerial Park. They offer different levels of ziplines, including a child’s course called "The Brave Indian.” Call 828-526-8773 in advanced to reserve a spot or check out their website at





The Martin Lipscomb Performing Arts Center will be showing several productions throughout the month. To start out the month, National Theatre Live will be showing a Donmar Warehouse production,” Coriolanus” on Saturday, February 6th. The following weekend, National Theatre Live will perform another Warehouse production called, "Les Liaisons Dangereuses” on the 13thOn Saturday the 27th, the PAC will be showing Shakespeare’s comedy, "As You Like It,” also by National Theatre Live.  For show time and ticket information, you can contact 828-526-9047 or view their website at


If you have not made it to Highlands to see the snow, come soon before it is all melted! Mitchell’s Lodge and Cottages is the perfect winter getaway. You can snug up next to your gas fireplace right in your room. The lobby is just as cozy, with our wood burning fireplace. We offer hot chocolate, cappuccino and coffee everyday during our office hours.





Valentines Day weekend is only 10 days away! Have you made plans yet? We only have a few vacancies! So, call us before we sell out! We hope to hear from you soon!



There's a long life ahead of you and it's going to be beautiful, as long as you keep loving and hugging each other.
