Total Solar Eclipse Makes for a Totally Stellar Summer Event

July 7th, 2017 by Staff

Summer is always a special time at High Hampton Inn, but this season our property is part of a select portion of the country that will witness a rare celestial phenomenon – the Great American Eclipse! August 21 will be the first time in decades that a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States, making this an essential part of any traveler’s bucket list.

 

 

This once in a lifetime spectacle is a can’t miss performance put on by our planet that will completely morph day into night as the moon blocks the sun. High Hampton Inn will experience 2 minutes and 23 seconds of total darkness, which is one of the longest totalities in the country and the longest totality in Jackson County.

 

High Hampton Inn is offering front row seats to the spectacle of the season. In honor of the eclipse, we are hosting the Total Eclipse on the Rock Mountain House Party, where guests can celebrate with great food, signature drinks, live entertainment, special eclipse viewing glasses and more. For even more ways to experience the natural wonder, check out other Jackson County eclipse weekend happenings and events.

 

 

Whether eclipse chasing, stargazing, leaf peeping or simply unwinding, High Hampton Inn is the premier mountain getaway destination. Can’t make it for the eclipse? Check out our fantastic fall packages that help put your mountain vacation within reach.

July 1st, 2016 by Staff

We have become famous for our festive house parties over the years, and our Fourth of July celebration is the biggest of them all! Here are four reasons to celebrate our nation’s birthday at one of America’s historic inns!

July 4th Picnic

1. Feast

Barbecue, watermelon, s’mores, oh my!

In classic, High Hampton Inn style, our lawn will be transformed into an outdoor picnic complete with a patriotic feast. Our chefs will prepare Southern-style ribs, watermelon, mac & cheese and more. Finish your feast by roasting marshmallows around the bonfire — the perfect recipe for a classic all-American summer barbecue!

 

 

2. Festivities 

Family-Friendly fun and entertainment!

Our guests know there is never a lack of activities available at High Hampton Inn, and our Fourth of July picnic is no exception. While the sun is out, take a splash in Hampton Lake with private docks and non-motorized boats, the lake is a summer staple for all of our guests. As the sun sets, dance to live entertainment, challenge your family and friends to lawn games and relax surrounded by the serene mountains.

3. Freedom From Responsibilities 

Let freedom ring!

At High Hampton Inn, we recognize that life can be stressful. Our resort is tucked away 1,400 acres back in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, making it is easy to get lost in the beauty and wonder of nature. This summer, families looking for a respite from the everyday will find solace in the tranquility of the Resort. You can be free from your busy schedule and spend the weekend relaxing among friends and family.

4. Family History

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

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Inn’s doors have been open to guests since 1922. Over the years, High Hampton Inn has undergone updates and renovations, all while still retaining the classic Southern charm guests have come to love. 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.
