Event planning

At Highland Meadows Resort, we want your event to be a success, so we've compiled a list of resources and a guide to local:

  • Event planners

  • Caterers

  • Photographers

  • Party supplies

  • Rentals

  • Etc.

Our event planning page and site map can help you visualize the space available and plan for activities as well as which guests will occupy which units or tent spaces. 

Once you contact us about hosting an event, you'll be sent a questionnaire so we can ensure you have everything you need from us — and we have clear expectations about what your event entails.
