High Hampton Inn in Cashiers, NC is perfect for all seasons, offering a variety of vacation packages. Unplug and unwind at 3,600 feet in elevation in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ceilings and floors made from the natural wood of the estate enhance the historic charm of the 1,400-acre property. Surrounding the Historic Inn, you’ll find peaceful cottages where families can truly unplug, as there is neither wireless internet access nor television. For longer stays and a less rustic experience, High Hampton proposes the vacation rental homes. These private homes, located among the trees and wildflowers of the mountains, offer up to five bedrooms, TVs, DVD Players, phones, cathedral ceilings, beautiful stone fireplaces, and fully equipped kitchens.
Every visit to High Hampton Inn allows for new special events and holiday weekend celebrations providing guests with flares and elements unique to each visit, while presenting the same relaxing vacation they remember. A previous guest described families playing together at the High Hampton Inn: “At night, there are 4-generation families playing Bingo or Skittles, talking and laughing together. People call it ‘adult’ camp, and that's a fitting description. The rooms and cottages feel more like your favorite pair of old, worn Levis and a pair of slippers.”
High Hampton Inn is truly a vacation destination for every season. In the fall guests can enjoy dinner in the dahlias, an annual family-style Thanksgiving house party, a Labor Day BBQ cookout, fly fishing, ziplining at Sapphire Valley, and horseback riding in the area, all while enjoying the trees changing colors. If that isn’t enough, their llama Olympics takes place throughout the year, and the 35-acre private Hampton Lake offers exceptional water adventures. Plan a trip during the summer months and take part in the summer solstice house party, complete with flowery adornments, a bonfire, and plenty music and merriment. The concierge can help get you set up for the hands-on falconry program. Guests can partake in many activities all season long. Unwind while playing golf, tennis, fly-fishing, climbing the beanstalk, or hiking 15+ miles of hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Hampton Health Club & Spa is a great way to unwind after dropping kids off at Kids’ Club or Youth at Hampton High. Lawn games and the dahlia garden are wonderful ways to relax while enjoying the mountain air. “The atmosphere will take you back in time, and we love that,” remarked another guest. “My children especially enjoyed the miniature donkeys, and we all had a great hike around the lake. My kids' favorite part, though, is the bottomless ice cream at dinner. Don't plan to bring your work here with you, though. We had no cell service, which was refreshing.”
Special events for Children and Teens include the Kids’ Club for children ages 3-9. Kids ages 8 and up can partake in zipline adventures, and mom-approved rafting adventures. Teens are invited to the Teen Room for foosball, Ping-Pong, air hockey, video games, and movies. Finally, lawn games for adults and children include croquet, bocce, corn toss, tetherball, volleyball, badminton, and putting.
