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.

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.

Tips on Putting Together the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner

November 1st, 2016 by Staff

With Thanksgiving approaching fast, we are excited to share some tips on how to make your Thanksgiving dinner successful and memorable. Below are some insider tips from our culinary and event teams on how to make this Thanksgiving one for the books!

1. Preparing Your List

One of the best ways to tackle the big meal is by taking care when prepping your grocery list. Think through your guest list, taste preferences and portion sizes to better gauge your culinary needs. We recommend kicking it old school by jotting everything down on paper. Based on your guest list, plan on 4 oz. of each item per person. With so many courses to prep, keep it simple by offering only two to three veggie or protein options. This is one way to ease some stress without compromising taste.

 

2. Timing is Everything

While in your planning process, figure out how long each item takes to prep and cook. Create a production chart to better keep track of course prep order and cooking times. The planning process will help coordinate space and your table setup.

 

3. Not Everything Needs to be Homemade

Home-cooked meals are always a hit, but time and space constraints can make cooking an entire meal from scratch a daunting task. Dishes like cranberry sauce can easily be purchased from your local grocery store, but you do not have to settle for store bought. For that from-scratch touch, cranberry sauce can easily be spiced up with candied pecans, raisins or apples!

 

4. Deciding on Décor

When deciding on décor, start with a color scheme. Once you have a color scheme in mind, begin researching current tablescapping trends. Do not be afraid to mix themes like vintage with rustic or stainless steel with wood. For that final fall touch, use flowers in full bloom and pine cones for an especially festive look.

 

5. For a Big Impression, Try Sprucing up the Small Stuff

Sometimes smaller details like your bread rolls, hollandaise sauce or gravy can get overlooked. This time around, make small tweaks like glazing the turkey or sprucing up your sides can go a long way.

 

6. Remember to Have Fun!

While it may be stressful planning out a dinner party, always remember that the guests are coming for more than delicious food. They are also here for friends and family! Planning a party and prepping a meal can be stressful, so take a year off and instead plan a trip to High Hampton Inn! We will do all the work for you.
