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.

4. Family History

A celebration at High Hampton Inn is a celebration of American history.

Adding to the High Hampton Inn legacy, the Inn was also selected as a filming location for the upcoming Dirty Dancing remake. With its rich American history, join us at High Hampton Inn to celebrate our nation’s birthday.
