This recently renovated mountain lodge is now open and booking rooms starting at $201/night.

What to expect: Skyline Lodge is a 40-room boutique hotel from The Indigo Road Hospitality Group, which also owns Charlotte’s O-Ku, Oak Steakhouse, Indaco and Mizu.

  • The 1930s-era inn, located three-plus hours west from Charlotte in Highlands, is the group’s first venture in the hotel industry.

The building was originally designed by a longtime architecture student of Frank Lloyd Wright, which explains the mid-century modern look and natural elements like reclaimed wood.

  • The whole lodge is flooded with natural light from its large windows.
  • There are 39 rooms and one suite coined the “Wright Suite” with two private balconies and a hand-carved granite fireplace.
  • The back terrace has fire pits, panoramic mountain views, lounge furniture, bocce ball and a fountain.

Dining: The lodge will also house another location of Oak Steakhouse, one of Charlotte’s best steakhouses. If you go (or if you’re dining here in Charlotte) order the Certified Angus Beef prime ribeye or bone-in filet.

Details: Room rates range from $200-$800 per night. Rooms can be booked here.
