Testimonials 

"Everyone had a great time at your beautiful lodge. The meeting was a success and folks were very pleased with the accommodations and meeting space. The staff was exemplary at providing great service. Your rates combined with your level of service make for an excellent business meeting venue." -Corporate Meeting Planner, NY

"Thank you again for all your help booking our accommodations for the July Mindful Trekking trip. Our participants were thrilled with the experience and really enjoyed their stay at the Highland Lodge". -Yoga Trip Leader, MA

"Our group stay and accommodations at the AMC Destinations were wonderful. Thanks to you and your staff for making the process so easy -- and for all your professionalism". -Corporate Retreat Organizer, PA

"It was a great trip, overall. Our group really meshed well together, and so when we encountered any "hurdles" we jumped them together. Our AMC guide did a great job of keeping everyone together and on the same page, and patching things up after our itinerary changed due to bad weather" -Adventure Trip Leader, Seattle, WA
