Keeping the Home Fires Burning

February 14th, 2011 by Staff

Here at High Hampton, we are known for our numerous fireplaces that always feature a roaring fire that warms the heart and the body.  At an elevation of 3,600 feet, you will often find fires burning during spring, summer and fall, as well as the winter off season.

We have 23 fireplaces located throughout the property. The most famous is the large four-sided stone fireplace that is the centerpiece of our spacious lobby. This beautiful structure acts as the heart of our historic Inn and has been bringing guests together for generations. Everyday, people gather around its glowing flames to read a book, play board games with their family, catch up with old friends, or enjoy afternoon tea. The fire is always burning in the lobby, inviting guests to cozy up and make themselves at home.

One of peoples’ favorite places to sit in the dining room is in front of the large fireplace.  Its flickering flames and inviting glow give visitors the feeling of sitting in their grandmother’s country cottage. Being here takes one back to a simpler time, when emphasis was put on spending time with family and friends. The demands and stresses of everyday life slowly begin to melt away.

High Hampton’s fireplaces aren’t only found indoors.  The secluded Lakeside Laurel Garden, surrounded by towering trees, features a full stone fireplace. Often reserved for private events, it’s the perfect space to spend an evening toasting marshmallows for S’mores. We also have fire pits located throughout the property, making our stunning patios the perfect place to gather on a cool evening to watch the stars twinkling in the sky.
