Fall in Love with Nature at High Hampton Inn

August 5th, 2016

With the end of summer approaching, Mother Nature will begin to paint the world with a whole new palette of colors. The bright green of the leaves will fade to the warm colors of fall, the summer heat will be replaced with a cool, autumn breeze, and new types of flowers will emerge. There is no better environment to experience these changes than at High Hampton Inn. With surrounding mountains, a private lake and a variety of foliage, the 1400 acres of private grounds make for the quintessential destination to embrace the tranquility of nature.
