Love is in the Mountain Air

February 22nd, 2018 by Staff

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but romance is still in the air at High Hampton Resort! Whether relaxing with your sweetheart during a treatment at Hampton Health Club & Spa, snuggling up under the covers in the secluded Honeymoon Cottage or bringing the adventure outside and exploring High Hampton’s eight scenic hiking trails, romance and fun times go hand-in-hand at the Resort! Check out our list of ways to celebrate your sweetheart all year long.

 

 

Take it Outside

Eight hiking trails that range in difficulty from first-timers to veterans pass through over 15 miles of the High Hampton property. Trek to the peak of Chimney Top Mountain at 4,618 ft. for an incredible view of Cashiers valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains or take it slow and go for a leisurely stroll along Hampton Lake.  Each trail is lined with hemlock, blooming rhododendron and mountain laurel that provide you and your sweetheart with a scenic and memorable hiking experience.

 

 

Your Own Private Getaway

High Hampton Resort emphasizes enjoying the company of your loved ones minus the fetters of phones, social media and television. Seventeen cabins sit on High Hampton’s 1,400-acre property, but the Honeymoon Cottage is a great private bunking option for those who want some special time alone. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage is the only bungalow located along the beautiful Jewel Lake. Sweep your sweetie off their feet and enjoy some one-on-one time together walking on your private beach, visiting the romantic water wheel or snuggling up by the roaring built-in fireplace.

 

 

Relax and Unwind

Take advantage of the world-class Hampton Health Club & Spa during your stay and help your special someone relax, unwind and rejuvenate. The couple’s massage is a great way to clear the mind and focus on spending time with the one you love. The “Sweetheart Surprise” is a great option for her which includes a full sugar scrub, chocolate truffle body wrap, a manicure, pedicure and wine! Many other spa treatments are available to help relax any level of stress or tension such as the deep tissue massage, warm river stone massage, deep reflexology treatment or the basic foot massage. The Hampton Health Club & Spa features organic skin care treatments as well that all visitors can enjoy. The organic chemical peel, detoxifying body-wrap or the Hampton signature facial are sure to leave you feeling revitalized and ready to make memories with your honey that you won’t soon forget!
