Thankful for You

November 21st, 2018 by Staff

Here at High Hampton Resort, we are thankful for our amazing guests and visitors that made our 96th season so wonderful. This past season was one to remember with events like Dinner in the Dahlias, our signature house parties, General Manager receptions and more. We hope you experienced our unmatched Southern hospitality and cozy accommodations. We wouldn’t have had such a successful season without you all.

Let’s take a look back at some of our favorite memories during the 96th season:

 

 

Dinner in the Dahlias

In August and September, guests were invited to experience a phenomenal dinner in our dahlia garden. August’s event featured a picnic, bonfire, flowery adornments, amazing dishes, music and merriment. September’s event was a spectacular gourmet dinner with wine pairings in the fully-bloomed garden. Both dinners were a huge hit among guests!

 

 

General Manager Receptions

The General Manger receptions were a weekly event held at Rock Mountain Tavern where our wonderful guests were able to meet our staff, take in breathtaking views and enjoy some tasty appetizers and drinks.  The meet and greets with our staff featured great conversation and wine and cheese, of course! We loved having the opportunity to meet some of the incredible people who come back to High Hampton year after year.

 

House Parties

With big events for Memorial Day Weekend, the Summer Solstice, Fourth of July Weekend, Labor Day Weekend and Thanksgiving, this season has been stacked with only the best celebrations for our guests. Our seasonal house parties are one of our favorite traditions at High Hampton and involve incredible dining, exciting entertainment options and the best company.

 

 

 

 

We truly cannot thank our guests enough for this amazing 96th season, and we are pleased to announce plans for Phase 2 of the re-imagination of the treasured High Hampton Resort & Club. Beginning this off-season, and working with the North Carolina State Historical Preservation Office, we are committed to building additional resort amenities and renovating the historic inn and lodging accommodations while continuing the renovation of the golf course under direction of Mr. Tom Fazio and his team. While Vacation Homes will still be available to rent for the 2019 season, reservations for the Inn and cabins will be suspended for the season due to the construction that will be taking place near to these lodging facilities.

We are so excited to welcome our amazing guests back in 2020! For more information or to book one of our vacation rental homes, please visit www.highhamptonresort.com, or call 800-334-2551.

Falconry

Whether you are looking to learn something new or simply gain a new skill, High Hampton Resort provides the opportunity for guests to learn about the art and sport of falconry. The resort offers lessons in the history of falcons and hawks, falconry equipment and the special training and handling involved in caring for the birds. High Hampton Resort helps bring the sport of kings into guests’ hands.

 

 

Miniature Donkeys

High Hampton Resort’s most iconic animal encounter is that between guests and resident donkeys Fred and Ed. Make sure to stop by the pasture and say hello to the two resident miniature donkeys, a staple at High Hampton Resort over generations. These two adorable donkeys love a good apple or carrot snack, but be sure to check for signs about donkey dietary restrictions. For even more animal fun, swing by in summer or stop by one of the resort’s signature seasonal events to see Fred and Ed taking younger guests on hayrides.
