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.

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.

High Hampton Inn Officially Opens for 92nd Season

April 25th, 2014 by Staff

The start of our 92nd season is officially here, and we are eager to welcome you back to our family-friendly mountain retreat! Tradition and Southern hospitality continue to play a huge role in the culture at High Hampton Inn , and this year we have some exciting new changes waiting for you to indulge in when you return.

When you walk into the lobby this season, you will see a new friendly face waiting to help you plan your perfect North Carolina mountain getaway. A full-time “adventure specialist’’ has been added to our family to help you take full advantage of the incredible activities available in the area surrounding the inn.  Adventures in water sports, horseback riding, rock climbing, canopy tours, and more can now be booked from the comfort of the lobby with help from our concierge service.

Our younger guests can spend time playing on the new ark-style playground located next to Noah’s Ark. It features a miniature climbing wall, smaller slide, and plenty of places for climbing and hiding out.  The older kids will love the Teen Room makeover, which makes it more comfortable and inviting. The air-hockey, foosball, and ping pong tables are prepped and ready for siblings to settle their rivalries once and for all.

Afternoon tea is a long-time Southern tradition, and High Hampton Inn has added more options to appeal to every palate. Now you can quench your thirst every afternoon with a flavored lemonade or on Fridays you can indulge in a delicious root beer float. If you are looking to satisfy that little pang of mid-afternoon hunger, you can treat yourself to a variety of scones, mini-muffins, lemon squares and more during afternoon tea.

Our gentle giants are back this year to caddy your clubs or lead you on a llama hike. The bocce ball and shuffleboard courts have been resurfaced and are ready for a little friendly competition. Nature lovers can enjoy the magnificent and award-winning specimen trees on our Champion Tree Trail. The trees can be found alongside the inn and lake, and we have added markers to help you appreciate their significance and beauty.

You will also notice subtle improvements in the comfort of our dining room and the classy touch the new copper chafer serving dishes bring to the atmosphere. In addition, minor changes have been made to our stunning golf course. For those wanting to pamper themselves, new treatments have been added to the spa menu.
