Dirty Dancing Debut at High Hampton Inn

May 8th, 2017 by Staff

May is here and that means Dirty Dancing is near! Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, High Hampton Inn has been a multi-generational mountain getaway for decades and recently served as a filming location for the Dirty Dancing remake. With its scenic views and southern charm, it was no surprise that producers chose the resort for the 30th anniversary remake of the 80s classic.

 

 

As fans of the film know, the story follows the journey of Baby, a budding young woman on vacation with her wealthy parents when she unexpectedly falls for Johnny, the resort’s rugged and charismatic dance instructor. As with all classic romance films, the couple must overcome obstacles, but we won’t give up too many of the details! The upcoming ABC TV remake will air on May 24th and High Hampton Inn is celebrating with a special viewing party.

 

Access to the exclusive event is $44 a person and includes a special dinner menu, games and dance lessons to help guests move and sway like Swayze. The festivities will also include a cash bar serving up hand-crafted cocktails inspired by the film. The event will make you feel as if you are the star, with the staff wearing custom Kellerman’s t-shirts. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best 50s and 60s attire. Dinner will be served starting at 6:30 p.m. and the movie screening will begin at 8:00 p.m.

 

 

For those traveling for the special event, High Hampton Inn is offering a special May Weekday Getaway package starting at $125 per person, based on double occupancy. Due to limited availability, this offer may be unavailable on select dates. Please contact reservations at High Hampton Inn for more details and to secure your reservation: 800-334-2551.

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.
