Celebrate Summer at High Hampton Inn

June 15th, 2016 by Staff

Have you ever had such a great day you never wanted it to end? Here at High Hampton Inn, guests often say their days here never seem long enough. On June 20th, guests don’t have to worry about the day ending too soon. To celebrate the Summer Solstice, the official start of summer and longest day of the year, High Hampton Inn is throwing one of our famous house parties!


House party Picnic


Civilizations have been honoring the beginning of the summer for centuries, and what better way is there to commemorate the occasion than with an outdoor party in our beautiful mountain setting? High Hampton originally celebrated the Summer Solstice House Party more than 50 years ago. This year marks the fourth anniversary of this tradition in its recent incarnation, with even more food, fun and festivities! A full picnic-style dinner will be served on the lawn featuring chef’s Southern-style ribs, pork, potato salad, mac & cheese and more for all the necessities for a proper summer feast.


Setting the stage for the summer soiree, our favorite band, Chuck Courtney, will play beach music favorites alongside a dance floor to give party-goers the chance to sway or shag along to their favorite summertime tunes. What summer beach party would be complete without a bonfire? Gather round the fire as the sun sets behind Rock Mountain, and who knows, we might have a marshmallow or two available for roasting! Keeping with a southern tradition, guests are encouraged to wear their summer whites to honor this special occasion!


Summer at High Hampton is full of traditions that will have everyone working up an appetite before the party starts. With a 1,400-acre backyard, hike to the top of Chimney Top or Rock Mountain, or for a more leisurely pace, explore the trail that winds around Hampton Lake.


Speaking of Hampton Lake, this 35-acre lake is the perfect place to cool off with paddle boats, kayaks and canoes, or sit back and cast a line for brim and trout. We have a lot more deck space constructed for the filming of the highly anticipated Dirty Dancing remake so there is plenty of room to relax.


Our special children’s programs keep kids entertained all day with donkey-cart rides, arts and crafts, nature walks, picnics, sporting and recreational programs. Best of all, our mountain elevation keeps temperatures generally 17 degrees cooler than the lower lying cities, making for the perfect summer destination!

Hollywood Comes to High Hampton Inn!

April 11th, 2016 by Brianna Wagenbrenner

Characterized by its exciting music, passionate romance and vibrant dancing, everyone in 1987 was in awe of what would become one America’s most beloved romantic movies – Dirty Dancing. Much has changed since the movie’s release date, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the desire to indulge in a resort experience like Kellerman’s and relive the iconic romance between Baby and Johnny. Now, you can do both!




ABC recently announced its decision to produce a three-hour remake of the romantic comedy. Filming in part at High Hampton Inn is the highly anticipated television remake of Dirty Dancing, which is set to star Scream Queen’s Abigail Breslin as Frances “Baby” Houseman and Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle. The remake follows the journey of Baby, a budding young woman on vacation with her wealthy parents in the Catskills as she unexpectedly falls for Johnny, the resort’s rugged and charismatic dance instructor.


Taking place in April and May, principal filming locations span across Western North Carolina. Embodying the spirit of Kellerman’s, High Hampton Inn is a filming destination for this highly anticipated television special. With the reputation of being a “Dirty Dancing style” resort, High Hampton Inn guests will see this multi-generational vacation favorite come to life in true Hollywood style!
