Skyline Lodge, steakhouse, open in Highlands, N.C.

Skyline Lodge and Oak Steakhouse, newly renovated historic properties, have opened in the mountain town of Highlands, N.C. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Skyline Lodge was a 1930’s-era property and has 39 guest rooms and one suite. It also offers stunning panoramic views as well as easy access to hiking trails, waterfalls and shopping destinations.
Oak Steakhouse is located on the lodge’s second floor and offers certified Angus beef and locally sourced produce from area farms. The first and only steakhouse in Highlands, Oak is led by Executive Chef Kelly Vogelheim, and guest will enjoy a variety of starters, entrees, sides, and more, including Braised Rabbit Agnolotti with White Wine, Hazelnut, and Lavender; Wild Mushroom Tart with Shaved Turnips, Garlic Confit, Sherry Cream, and Gruyere; Duck Fat Poached Lobster Tail with Saffron Risotto, Pea Tendril, and Chive Oil. Executive Pastry Chef Anne White offers delectable treats such as her signature Sorghum Caramel Cake (which is sold both by the slice at Oak and as a full cake to take home), a gluten-free Eight Layer Chocolate Cake, and a Honeysuckle Sorbet with Fried Sage Leaves and Baked Honey Meringue Shards.
In addition to Oak, Skyline Lodge’s central lobby bar, Butlers Lounge, serves mid-century cocktails and  features expansive lounge seating, vaulted load-bearing ceilings, and two large scale fireplaces of hand-carved, locally quarried granite.
  The lodge is part of the Indigo Road Hospitality Group, led by group founder and   three-time James Beard Award Outstanding Restaurateur nominee Steve Palmer and Indigo Road President of Lodging & Lifestyle Adventures Larry Spelts.
