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.

As any true mountain lover knows, a bird’s eye view is the best kind of view. Hikers who make the trek to the 4,618-foot peak of Chimney Top Mountain will be rewarded by stunning, near 360-degree views that soar even higher than the birds.

If the four-hour round-trip hike up and down Chimney Top isn’t enough, guests can stop by High Hampton Inn’s front desk for information on any of the property’s eight well-marked hiking trails. For a shorter trek, hikers can make the two-hour trip to the top of Rock Mountain for excellent westward views. For a more up-close experience with the property, guests can wander the one-and-a-half-mile Lake Trail which follows the edge of High Hampton’s privately owned, 35-acre Hampton Lake.
