  1. Comfort Food to Crave

Start your day off right with our delicious southern eats. Dining at the High Hampton Inn is a social experience; indulge in an upscale buffet of scrumptious offerings in the traditional style dining room, that was recently featured in ABC’s adaption of Dirty Dancing this year. Grab a biscuit and savor the flaky, buttered center. Make sure to commemorate the moment with a picture guaranteed to make your friends mouths water.

 

 

  1. Picturesque Hiking Trails

Work off your meal by hiking along some of our more than 15 miles of scenic mountain trails. The top of Chimney Top or Rock Mountain offer stunning nature views with no end of photo possibilities.

Make your day even more memorable by visiting Ed and Fred at our iconic donkey pasture. This bucket-list item makes for funny stories and better photos.

 

 

  1. Wine Down Your Day

Stroll over to the Rock Tavern and grab a glass of wine while taking in the surrounding scenery. Sit back and enjoy the live music and feel of the fall season. Be sure capture a photo of the luscious lawn and beautiful Rock Mountain terrace.

 

 

  1. What Dreams Are Made Of

Before heading to bed in one of our cozy rooms, make sure to snap a picture of our historic Inn. Whether sunrise, sunset, mid-afternoon or dusk, the Inn serves as the heart and focal point of our 1,400-acre property. Once you’ve sufficiently made your social media followers envious with wanderlust, it’s off to your cozy accommodations to dream about mountain views, comfort food and, of course, donkey pastures.

Summer is always a special time at High Hampton Inn, but this season our property is part of a select portion of the country that will witness a rare celestial phenomenon – the Great American Eclipse! August 21 will be the first time in decades that a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States, making this an essential part of any traveler’s bucket list.

 

 

This once in a lifetime spectacle is a can’t miss performance put on by our planet that will completely morph day into night as the moon blocks the sun. High Hampton Inn will experience 2 minutes and 23 seconds of total darkness, which is one of the longest totalities in the country and the longest totality in Jackson County.

 

High Hampton Inn is offering front row seats to the spectacle of the season. In honor of the eclipse, we are hosting the Total Eclipse on the Rock Mountain House Party, where guests can celebrate with great food, signature drinks, live entertainment, special eclipse viewing glasses and more.
