This was my first visit to the High Hampton and unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations. The location is absolutely beautiful and the grounds around the original inn are well kept. The lobby/common areas are well maintained and charming with roaring fires and lots of places to gather with family and friends. Beyond that, this place is a... More

I've read a lot of varying reviews of this place and all I can say is every time I've stayed at the High Hampton, I left with a real sense family and the old ways. The grounds are superb, the staff attentive and the dining experience is one you will see nowhere else. Keeping it as traditional as possible is... More

Thank you. Yes, there have been mixed reviews over the years for many different reasons. We appreciate what you wrote and that High Hampton Inn is a place you find some solitude. Adhering to our traditions is sometimes tricky in this ever changing world however, we believe after 92 years of service that that adherence is an attraction all unto... More

We have stayed at High Hampton a few times. The setting is beautiful and the rustic family atmosphere very nice as well. The buffet is adequate. Gets the job done. Not as good this visit as times past. And yes they could definately do a better job cleaning the rooms. The beds are very comfy! Upon arrival we were assigned... More

I don't even know where to begin. I have stayed at High Hampton Inn every summer since the year I was born and it is always my favorite week of the year.

Remember what family resorts used to be? High Hampton Inn captures that hospitality and rustic elegance with cabins, porches, trails, delicious meals, and friendly staff. Families and couples share the delight of the mountain air and the many activities. Spectacular is word to describe the beautiful gardens especially the Dahlia garden. Don't miss it. Eating in the dining room provides... More

I have thought a long time about how to write this review. It is a place you really want to like. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept. The rooms are absolutely filthy.

Our family has been going to High Hampton over the last 28 years and simply enjoy every visit. The best part is that the ambience remains true to it's historical roots of 1922. It's a great place to take a hike in the mountains, play a round of golf, go canoeing or take a swim in the clear lake or... More

If you want to experience a resort that has been around for years and probably hasn't changed much, then this is nostalgic. The resort has no AC. We were in a cottage with a portable fan and ceiling fan and were comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the cottage was quaint. The buffet meals were great and had something for... More
