Thirty years of memories!
Our 30th anniversarycelebration was an afternoon of great memories. Many former employees and guests joined Sandy and Don to celebrate thirty years of Highland Manor Inn. The very first guests, a family from Indiana who stayed here June 6, 1982, returned for the weekend and reminsced fondly about their first stay. They remembered that they had come to east Tennessee for the World’s Fair, but their 4 boys were disappointed because it wasn’t the kind of “fair” with rides. So they came to the mountains and stayed at Highland Manor Inn, which was not completely ready yet with a swimming pool but no water! Other former guests came from as far away as Georgia and Louisiana to help us celebrate. We’re asking everyone to write about their memories of staying at Highland Manor Inn, so be sure to add your story to our journal when you visit this year…….Jennifer
