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.

Fall Foliage Fun in North Carolina

October 18th, 2012 by Staff

Now that the middle of October is here, we have finally reached the start of peak foliage time in Cashiers!  Everywhere you turn, the trees are awash in bright reds, oranges, yellows and purples. Fall is really one of the prettiest times of year in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Now is the perfect time to book an autumn getaway to experience fall’s favorite hues. Our special packages help put a mountain vacation easily within reach!

In addition to the rainbow of colors awaiting you, we also offer access to some very unique experiences that will make your fall trip even more memorable.

Our Heirloom Tree Garden features a variety of large trees like the Ginkgo tree, Bottlebrush Buckeye, Bald Cyprus, a fiery Copper Beech, and America’s largest Frasier Fir. These trees were planted more than 100 years ago and offer amazing fall color every year.  They are the perfect complements to the main Lodge, which was built in 1932 as a North Carolina vacation destination and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

If you love waterfalls, southwestern North Carolina is the place to visit. This area is home to dozens of stunning falls that are even more amazing when surrounded by fall foliage. Many of the falls can be easily reached by following scenic U.S. Highway 64 east or west from High Hampton Inn.

For one-of-a-kind views of the fall foliage, you can hike the many trailsthat wind throughout the property. Climb to the summits of either Rock Mountain at 4,370 feet or Chimney Top Mountain at 4,618 feet for a bird’s eye view of the the miles of autumn colors in the valley between Cashiers, Highlands and Whiteside Mountain.

Last but not least, mid-to-late October is the ideal time to view the Cashiers Valley’s unique natural phenomenon – the Bear Shadow. During this time of year, a perfect image of a Black Bear dancing across the tops of the colorful trees is created when the sun sets behind Whiteside Mountain. The best places to view the ethereal bear are along U.S. Highway 64 in Cashiers, about one hour before dark.
