Day Events

If you’re looking for an attractive space for a family holiday gathering, a catered midweek meeting for a business or club, or a summertime pool party with friends, day use of Highland’s facilities could be the answer. Rent a meeting room or pavilion without the expense of overnight accommodations, and enjoy a day at Highland!

Reservations for day events in peak times (weekends and summer) may be made a month in advance. Reservations for day events in non-peak, midweek times may be made 3 months in advance.

Meetings & Meals (Year-Round)

Have your family gatherings have outgrown the family home? Are you looking for a special setting for a holiday party for your business or organization? Do you have a small group, committee, or club that would benefit from a mini retreat? Enjoy a day away in one of Highland’s meeting rooms in any season, with the option of delicious meals catered by our food service staff.

Due to the higher volume of overnight guest groups on weekends and summer mid-weeks, day use of our meeting rooms is mainly available during the non-summer months, Monday-Friday (2:00 check-out on Friday). Check our availability calendars to see which days might be available.

Pavilions & Pool Parties (Seasonal)

Bring your family, friends, club, or church group out to Highland for a day in the great outdoors! Choose from several pavilions that provide sheltered spaces for eating and socializing, enjoy some outdoor recreation, and swing by the pool to cool off.

Hikes around Highland’s property are available to all groups, and facilitated challenge course activities can be scheduled in advance for an additional fee.

Time in our pool can complement any summer outing! The pool has regular hours each weekend from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, and may be rented for private events at other times. See the pool page for more details.

Pavilions are available in the warmer months; the bathhouses are typically closed for the winter in November and reopened in April.
