Enjoy the Beautiful White Mountains!
Located on 100 private wooded acres
in New Hampshire's beautiful White Mountains, The Highlands Inn is truly "A Lesbian Paradise."
The Inn has 18 guest rooms, all with private baths. Several rooms have special amenities, such as a private deck, fireplace, two-person spa, or both a spa and fireplace. Rooms and common areas are furnished with antiques, fine linens, original artwork, and fresh flowers, creating the ambiance of a Victorian country home. In keeping with this atmosphere, guest rooms feature distinctive period pieces; many have a four-poster or canopy bed handcrafted by local craftsmen.
In the winter, our trails provide outstanding cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. We have a private indoor hot tub located in the Main Inn. Our living room is a wonderful spot for a cozy glass of wine by the fire, or a game of scrabble, after a long day of skiing at one of our nearby ski resorts.
In the summer, guests enjoy the heated 54-foot pool with its surrounding sundeck. Leisurely walks and more strenuous hikes on the Inn's 15 miles of well-maintained trails are always popular ... the trails are also great for mountain biking. And New Hampshire's fall foliage is world-famous!
A massage is the perfect way to relax on your vacation! Our massage room is on the second floor of the Main Inn, so you can enjoy your massage without leaving the property. You can request a massage when booking your reservation, or by contacting the inn. A relaxing one hour massage is only $70.

WOMEN HELPING WOMEN
Please support us as we build a partnership with a wonderful local support service agency. The Burch House provides shelter, direct services and assistance to victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence. We would love for our community to support their community through donations of toiletry items such as toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products. Many women in crisis are unable to meet these very basic needs that we all take for granted.
When you are packing for your Highlands Inn vacation, please include a new toiletry item in your luggage. We will have a donation box available, and will make sure the items get safely to the Burch House. If you wish, you can enclose a note of support and encouragement.
Thank you for helping us to support our sisters in need.

We just enjoyed another relaxing vacation at the Highlands... There is nothing more peaceful than a walk in the woods on a beautiful winter day. We met new friends and had an excellent winter wonderland holiday. Can't wait for our next visit! By July, we'll be ready for some pool time. -Philadelphia, PA
Everything you want it to be... I first visited the Inn years ago as a solo traveler and adored the respite it gave me. Now I bring my wife and my friends for the perfect weekend getaway. The energy of the new owners is warm and friendly and I wish them the greatest success! I love the horseshoe pit, the hot tub, the hiking trails, and most of all the people you meet. -Cambridge, MA
We stayed up there in Sept. 2012. If you need to relax and unwind, this is the place to go. The hosts, Jenny and Gia are great. There is lots to do in the area or you don't have to do a thing, your choice... we will definatly go back. -Peabody, MA
The Highlands Inn is such a safe haven, such a very special place. The atmosphere, the friendliness and the amenities that you take pride in providing are very much enjoyed and appreciated. We were able to relax (let's hear it for the outdoor jacuzzi!), sleep, laugh and shop to our hearts' content last weekend. We really needed all that. - Quebec, Canada
