A summer stay on our stunning mountain property is just the ticket to an unforgettable family vacation. Our impressive array of amenities, expansive grounds and one-of-a-kind activities make our mountain resort a top spot for a little fun in the sun.

 

Our guests can enjoy clay tennis courts and mountainside golf, or lace up their hiking boots and head out on some of our property’s more than 15 miles of hiking trails. No matter the activity, guests are sure to score scenic views and make plenty of family mountain memories.

 

 

In addition to temperatures averaging 10 to 15 degrees cooler than in lower lying regions, guests can beat the heat with some time at our privately owned, 35-acre Hampton Lake. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and swimming are just a few of the ways to make a splash this summer.

 

High Hampton Inn also offers guests unique experiences such as special llama hikes and the popular falconry program. The llamas venture out on their weekly walks every Thursday and Saturday lead by High Hampton Inn’s llama wrangler Mark English. Following an afternoon llama adventure, be sure to say hello to Fred and Ed, the two resident donkeys of High Hampton Inn.

 

 

With all the fun in the sun you’ll be having, be sure to schedule some time to experience all of High Hampton Inn’s impressive amenities. Visit the spa, enjoy signature Southern dining, plan a picnic, play some lawn games and more! Guests can also head over to the Rock Mountain Tavern for drinks and live music.

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.
