“Birthday Bonanza”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I planned a surprise getaway for my husband's 75th birthday, and it was a success in every way. Instead of the full meal plan, I had asked for breakfast only, and the reservations hostess couldn't have been more accommodating. Because the website tends to be general, she was able to offer room/cottage descriptions that helped us make an excellent choice.

Our cottage was immaculate, comfortable,and well-located.
Breakfast buffet was varied, well-prepared and well-staffed so that everything was always hot/cold /fresh--delicious! The service was also excellent.
The Inn's high standard of maintenance only enhances the natural beauty that is part of the Cashiers area. Many activities are offered that will appeal to people of all ages.

We enjoyed ourselves so much we will be returning in September--to celebrate my birthday at High Hampton too.

Room Tip: Speak directly to a reservations staff member and be specific about what you want/need.

I wanted to love this place. The setting is spectacular and the rustic environment really encourages you to "get away from it all". We were disappointed with two things: all the food is served buffet-style (they refer to it as "family style" which is different from buffet where I come from). So we didn't love the food. Second, we were *extremely* disappointed with the children's program. My kids were there for an evening and they spent the whole time sitting in metal folding chairs watching a tv screen not much larger than a smartphone. The were fed chicken wings for dinner and water from the bathroom sink. I had been told that they would be making Disney-themed costumes and having chicken tenders for dinner, but the staff did nothing creative or fun with my kids while they were there. We did go on some great hikes, though, and enjoyed the lake. So overall, a mixes bag.

We spent four nights in a house through the High Hampton. It's rustic and marvelously relaxing. The view from the back of the lodge down to the mountain and lake is fabulous, and we loved post dinner cocktails outside where there is live music being played.

If doing water activities, do not rent the paddleboats (too much work). We promptly exchanged for a canoe and had a fabulous, relaxing time. Walks around the lake were scenic, cool, fun exercise. Our 4 and 6 year olds had a ball.

Can't wait to visit again.

Wife and I stay at High Hampton every summer. We love it. Wonderful place to relax and forget about the stresses of daily life. Rustic cabins, great food, and fantastic people.
We recommend at least a five night stay. They also have a very fun golf course.

A wonderful mountain retreat.

My wife and I have spent a long weekend the last two Octobers at this resort. We love the simple, rustic accommodations. We love the fact that there is no TV in our room. We love the fantastic hiking trails, the clay tennis courts, the lakeside setting, the evening entertainment and the bfast/lunch/dinner buffets. And we love meeting the other guests.

Last week, we returned to High Hampton for our second visit. Travelling with my wife and I were our two children - seven and five.

We had a truly wonderful 5 days.

I used the Inn as a fitness "bootcamp" : I signed up for 1:1 fitness lessons with the trainer at the health club plus with Marianna the tennis pro. They were excellent.

My children begged to be enrolled in Noah's Ark which is the kids Club.

My wife worked on the Inn's front porch.

We spent our afternoon's together as a family --the kids Club closes at 2:00 pm --relaxing at the Lake.

So many positives, most of all the friendly staff especially at the restaurant.

Truly a wonderful place.

That said, it is woth setting expectations: The rooms are adequate and charming. They are not luxorious and I hope will never be.

This is a PRETENCIOUS DUMP! What a joke! COMPLETELY OVERPRICED and NOT SAFE! This "lost in the woods" resort is a want to be and I have vacationed at the likes of The Homestead Spa & Resort, Nemacolin and the Greenbrier. What a joke! No elevator and we had many elderly and disabled individuals in our party, no phones in the rooms, no AC, dead bugs were in the room, there is a foot gap between the floor and the door so that rodents, bugs, etc....can enter your room. NO HAND RAILS in the bathroom for those that assistance when bathing and the fire exits in the event that the popsicle structure went up in to flames was frightening to say the least. THE ONLY redeeming quality of this resort is the picturesque view of a rock face overlooking a murky and nasty pond and the food. The food was pretty good and the young staff was polite. Save the money and RENT an RV if you want to go camping instead of staying at this dive. We left a family wedding and opted for the HAMPTON INN in Cashiers and it was LOVELY!

Once in a while get do get guests who are not in tune with who we are and what we offer. Sadly, this appears to be in case in this instance. When we discover this we hopefully can resolve the apparent discomfort while they are on property but even that cannot always be done. High Hampton goes to great length to describe who we are even by posting this statement in all of our literature and web site content. “Over the years we've found that not everyone likes it here. Those who don't like it usually want more plush accommodations - ours are simple and rustic. While there are many planned daytime and evening activities, there are no neon lights or crowded casinos. Commercialism is not part of High Hampton's beauty. But fortunately, most people do like it and come back season after season”.
This review in our estimation clouds the joy and memories that High Hampton Inn is known to produce. We wish there was a re-do for this family so that we could have them depart on a very different note and submit a very different message. Our invitation to them stands open.
Respectfully,
