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!

Total Solar Eclipse Makes for a Totally Stellar Summer Event

July 7th, 2017 by Staff

Summer is always a special time at High Hampton Inn, but this season our property is part of a select portion of the country that will witness a rare celestial phenomenon – the Great American Eclipse! August 21 will be the first time in decades that a total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States, making this an essential part of any traveler’s bucket list.

 

 

This once in a lifetime spectacle is a can’t miss performance put on by our planet that will completely morph day into night as the moon blocks the sun. High Hampton Inn will experience 2 minutes and 23 seconds of total darkness, which is one of the longest totalities in the country and the longest totality in Jackson County.

 

High Hampton Inn is offering front row seats to the spectacle of the season. In honor of the eclipse, we are hosting the Total Eclipse on the Rock Mountain House Party, where guests can celebrate with great food, signature drinks, live entertainment, special eclipse viewing glasses and more. For even more ways to experience the natural wonder, check out other Jackson County eclipse weekend happenings and events.

 

 

Whether eclipse chasing, stargazing, leaf peeping or simply unwinding, High Hampton Inn is the premier mountain getaway destination. Can’t make it for the eclipse? Check out our fantastic fall packages that help put your mountain vacation within reach.

In addition to temperatures averaging 10 to 15 degrees cooler than in lower lying regions, guests can beat the heat with some time at our privately owned, 35-acre Hampton Lake. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and swimming are just a few of the ways to make a splash this summer.

 

High Hampton Inn also offers guests unique experiences such as special llama hikes and the popular falconry program. The llamas venture out on their weekly walks every Thursday and Saturday lead by High Hampton Inn’s llama wrangler Mark English. Following an afternoon llama adventure, be sure to say hello to Fred and Ed, the two resident donkeys of High Hampton Inn.

 

 

With all the fun in the sun you’ll be having, be sure to schedule some time to experience all of High Hampton Inn’s impressive amenities.
