“Great place to build family memories.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Step back in time and experience gracious, upscale mountain hospitality as it has been practiced for 100 years at High Hampton Inn. It's like staying at your grandfather's very genteel old country club. Rustic and proper at the same time. Love their traditions - no motorcycles allowed (noisy), dress for dinner, etc. Well scrubbed, polite crowd, many of whom have been coming to the High Hampton Inn for generations. Loved it!

We are avid travelers and have stayed in hotels ranging from stilted tree lodges in Africa to five star hotels in Europe. We would not hesitate to book High Hampton Inn (HHI) again and recommend it to other travelers.

We had our first stay at HHI on May 10-12 and thoroughly enjoyed this step back in Southern culture. My Southern culture would be Atlanta and the surrounding Southern states. My wife’s Southern culture would be Durban, South Africa and the Drakensberg Mountains. The HHI reminded us of places we had visited as youngsters and all the good memories they provided.

The grounds were stunning, particularly as you first drive in the winding driveway. The trees, flowers and grass were in bloom and very beautiful. The lodge looked like a cross between the Walton’s house and a New England inn. The lodge was decorated in a kind of hunting/country club lodge style, very understated but very nice. Real fires were in the fireplaces.

The dining room was the main attraction in the lodge. The room was all wood, floors, walls and ceilings, very traditional looking. Tables were wooden with linen table clothes. Silverware was appropriate for eating meals in courses. A real fire was in the fireplace in the dining room too. The food was comfort food such as, fried chicken, shrimp and grits, barbecued pork. New York strip, baked turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli casserole, strawberry/rhubarb cobbler, hummingbird cake, etc. The food, while not gourmet, was very good and very plentiful. We especially liked the fresh salads and homemade dressings. All meals were buffet style with different carving, omelet and stir fry stations. We thoroughly enjoyed our three meals a day. At 4:00 in the afternoon we enjoyed tea time, both hot and iced tea and cookies.

As clearly stated on the website and brochures, the rooms were rustic without air-conditioning, televisions or telephones. They were quite rustic but clean, nicely appointed and quaint. Our room was in the Lake Cottage and it was equipped with two double beds (quite comfortable), a ceiling fan, a chest of drawers and bathroom with tub and shower. The room had a hairdryer, an iron and an ironing board. The room had a very nice porch that overlooked the lake dam (great sound) and parts of the golf course.

The resort had many activities from which to choose. We played tennis, practiced putting/chipping, canoed, played shuffleboard, bocce, table tennis and golf. There were many other activities for all ages. We particularly enjoyed the tennis with the resident pro Mariona and a local minister/guide Steve. Both were great fun! The golf course was very scenic and very fun.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were particularly impressed with our reservationist Tina. She was very friendly and informative. Additionally the maître d, Corey was very friendly and accommodating. The staff all seemed to really enjoy their jobs.

The only negatives for us: the walls were thin in the rooms and the service at the restaurant was slow. One of our servers Queenie was very good and very personable.

We look forward to returning to HHI in the near future. We liked the walk back in time and enjoy starting another tradition.

We spent Mother's Day weekend here. It was our first time - but won't be our last. It is a charming setting, very rustic and very comfortable. The meals were great, the grounds are beautiful, and it is very relaxing to just sit in the lobby area and read. The Tavern has some wonderful entertainment.
Most of all the staff are simply wonderful and engaging. This will be my most enduring memory
- being treated like royalty!

High Hampton has been the same for over 20 years...a wonderful place for families and relaxing in the mountains. The food changes each day...desserts are made from scratch. Kids activities each day. Loads of hiking and golf can be enjoyed. Waterfalls are plenty around this resort. The resort is certainly rustic...don't expect butler service or 5 star meals but you should expect and will get good clean fun and wonderful memories. They have added a spa in recent years but I haven't had the pleasure of visiting it.

Room Tip: Choose a cabin rather then a room in the inn...there are many to choose from. Some are bigger then o...

This place is completely charming and exactly what we wanted for a quick break. The scenery is fabulous. Mountains to climb, canoes to paddle and games everywhere to play. We unplugged and our kids explored everywhere. I had two teenage boys who loved the food and actually were full after every meal. Okay cookies and milk at 9:30pm every night and roaring fires.....my kind of place. If you are looking for new, flat screens, and cell reception go elsewhere. We loved our trip here!

I literally looked from the mountains to the coast for the perfect destination wedding location, and am so excited to have found High Hampton Inn! Of everyone we met with, Caroline was so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. From a planning standpoint, she outlined every option available to us and kept us on track and on budget to plan our dream wedding! They are the best!

Since my first review of the High Hampton Inn, I had the amazing experience of getting married there surrounded by friends and family. In one word, it was perfection! While I may be slightly biased, we've heard the same feedback from so many of the guests. From the rooms to the food to the overall experience, we heard nothing but positive, wonderful compliments from guests that traveled from around the world to attend our big day.

We had the great pleasure of working with Caroline, the events director at the Inn. From day 1 she made the seemingly stressful planning process so easy and enjoyable. Whenever me or my mom had a question, she went out of her way to provide helpful, honest feedback. We relied heavily on her and her previous experience and couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. I'm confident our wedding was as wonderful as it was due in large part to Caroline and her attention to each detail to ensure our special weekend went off without a single hitch!

I think it's safe to say our guests found the High Hampton Inn as special and wonderful as we do. We received several notes from guests during the holidays that were eager to tell us they'd just hung their HHI ornaments on their trees and loved reliving all of the great memories from their experience there.

I can't recommend the High Hampton Inn enough -- whether it's for a weekend away, a family gathering or a wedding, it's truly a wonderful place! We look forward to returning for many years to come!

Catherine,
Thank you so very much for your glowing review. We are grateful that we could play such an important role in one of the most exciting day of your young life. Weddings are just one of the elements we feel we do well and Caroline is a symbol of our dedication to that goal. She immerses herself into each and every event and we thank you for the recognition you shared and experienced. Two families coming together could not be more important to us. We look forward to your anniversary and will be here with open arms. Thank you again!
