  1. Endless Activities. There is never a shortage of things to do at High Hampton Inn! Take advantage of the warming weather by participating in one of the many awesome outdoor activities High Hampton Inn has to offer. Trek one of the eight well-marked North Carolina mountain hiking trails, fish for rainbow trout in glistening mountain streams or enjoy the privately-owned, 35-acre Hampton Lake with some peaceful rowing and pedal boating. High Hampton Inn is the perfect place for anyone looking to unplug and unwind.
  2. Quality R&R. Escape the woes of everyday life with a tranquil and relaxing stay at our Western North Carolina mountain oasis. At High Hampton Inn guests can swing out some stress with a round of mountainside golf or by indulging in a little spa pampering. High Hampton Inn even offers a special package for guests looking to play and pamper their way into a little R&R.
  3. Scenic Views. Stunning scenic views are in surplus here at our mountain resort. Whether golfing, hiking, fishing, swimming or strolling the grounds, the breathtaking scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains abounds. In fact, High Hampton Inn was recently featured by BravoTV Jetset as a top spot to snap a selfie!
  4. Signature House Parties. High Hampton Inn knows how to throw a party. Exciting family-friendly events are held all season long and promise fun for the whole family. Kick off High Hampton Inn’s 95th season with Spring Golf School and the Memorial Day House Party.
  5. Seasonal Temps. This spring, beat the southern heat and make for the mountains! The weather in the Western North Carolina mountains is phenomenal. With temperatures 15 to 20 degrees cooler than in lower lying regions, there is no better place to retreat and rejuvenate.

Celebrating our 95th Season

High Hampton has been a beacon of Southern hospitality since the nineteenth century and we look forward to continuing this tradition during our 95th season. The High Hampton story began with the Hampton family’s yearly summer travels, by train from Columbia to Greenville and then by horse and buggy up the rough mountain roads to Cashiers. Many things have changed since 1818 but the charm of High Hampton Inn has remained throughout the years.

Mountain Vistas & Memorable Vows

January 23rd, 2017

Weddings are no longer one evening or even one day events. Weddings are a weekend of memories for the bride, groom and their family and friends. While there is something to say about the nostalgia behind getting married in your own backyard or hometown, more and more brides are looking for a unique destination offering activities for all their guests.

According to The Knot, destination weddings offer a cost-effective and stress-free alternative to a traditional wedding as well as the chance to reunite with friends and family for a weekend of fun. Does this sound like something you have been daydreaming about? If so, it is time to choose a location.

If your fairy tale visions feature beautiful woodlands and breathtaking views, High Hampton Inn is the dream destination for you. Still need more convincing? Here are a few of our favorite activities available for our High Hampton Inn wedding parties.

 

Pre-Wedding Adventure:  Regardless of whether or not you have already celebrated your bachelorette or bachelor party, the days leading up to your big day are special moments to spend with friends and family. What better way to cherish them than a mountain adventure hike for 360 degree mountain views at the peak of Chimney Top Mountain, or with a lake excursion casting a line or grabbing a paddle on one of our on-property lakes. The photos alone will leave all but your wedding party with a serious case of FOMO.

 

Pamper, Unwind and Relax: It’s a given that you have worked hard to plan your wedding and deserve some much needed R&R to unwind before the big day. In fact, wedding experts suggest that wedding parties take time to relax before heading down the aisle (or in this case mountain vista). Relieve your planning stress and let your worries slip away by checking in to our spa for massages, yoga, mani/pedis, hair styling and more.

 

Personalized Day-Of: The key to a unique wedding is an authentic destination with plenty of ceremony and reception locations. We are excited to work with you to turn your very own wedding fantasy into a wedding day reality.

 

Send-Off in Style: Brides and grooms aren’t just sneaking out the back door anymore. The send-off day is everyone’s opportunity to gossip about the best dance moves from the night before and how incredible the bride and groom looked during the vows. Plan a morning brunch with your guests for the occasion in our dining area or have the team at High Hampton Inn help you to set-up a brunch event.
