Cool off with a leisurely lake stay in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Hampton Lake, a private 35-acre water wonderland, is teeming with aquatic adventures for all ages. Take a dip in the wading pool, make a splash in the swimming area, or catch a tan on the sandy beach. Two docks and swim platforms serve as your gateway to the lake while a children's playground keeps the little ones entertained. Explore the pristine mountain waters sailing, canoeing, rowing, or paddle boating. With so many fishing options, anglers will be reeling. Because the lake is private, there are no fees, meaning fishers can hook rainbow trout, bass, and bream free of charge. Transfer from the blue lake waters to the greens of the High Hampton Golf Club, an 18-hole course lined with towering pines and mountain scenery. Afterward, retreat to one of the 116 guest rooms and suites or a cozy cottage and soak in the rustic yet refined charm!
