Begin a Longstanding Family Tradition at High Hampton

In a community that is every bit as steeped in history and tradition as it is in culture and natural beauty, the people of the greater Cashiers area of Western North Carolina share many happy memories of good times spent in the established subdivisions and country clubs that dot the landscape. Nowhere is this perhaps more true than in High Hampton. With so many generations of families growing up in and around this prestigious network of neighborhoods, bordering the historic High Hampton Inn and Country Club – it is as central to the community as the Village Green and the Cashiers Crossroads in the hearts and minds of our citizens and seasonal visitors. Many of High Hampton’s sought after neighborhoods are located just south of the Crossroads, offering easy access to the unique shops and restaurants that line downtown streets. A collection of upscale High Hampton homes is located along Chattooga Wood Road, Heaton Forest Road and Sheep Laurel Road. High Hampton is not only a fine example of luxury mountain living, but pays tribute to a long tradition of “heirloom” properties – as many families return year after year and pass these homes down from generation to generation. Because it is such a prestigious and established community, resale homes in High Hampton are extremely hard to come by. If you fall in love with this distinctive assortment of neighborhoods in the Blue Ridge Mountains and hope to purchase a home here one day, the dedicated team of real estate professionals at Silver Creek Real Estate Group is happy to keep watch for you.  As soon as we learn of a real estate opportunity in High Hampton, we will contact you.  To put us on alert, simply call Silver Creek at 828-743-1999, e-mail us at info@ncliving.com, fill out our online contact form, or drop by our offices – conveniently located near High Hampton in the Shoppes at Creekside on Highway 64 West, next to Wendy’s Restaurant.  We can be your eyes and ears on the mountain!

In the meantime, you can begin your own special family tradition by spending part of each year at the renowned High Hampton Inn and Country Club. Rich in history and brimming with Southern hospitality, High Hampton Inn and Country Club has been charming visitors of Western North Carolina since the early 19th century. Beloved mountain retreat of South Carolina’s Civil War Brigadier General, Governor, and U.S. Senator Wade Hampton III (1818-1902), many of the buildings and historic artifacts from the original family estate were lost in a fire in 1932. Construction began almost immediately of a three-story inn in place of the previous Hampton Hunting Lodge. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn still stands today, and continues to serve up unrivaled service along with its famous fried chicken and decadent desserts.

With all the natural beauty and outdoor activities available at HHI, patrons of the historically accurate rustic Inn will hardly miss the fact that there are no telephones or televisions in the guestrooms. Visitors are invited instead to enjoy swimming, boating and fishing on the 35-acre private mountain lake, as well as golf, tennis, hiking and spa. For more than 175 years, guests of High Hampton have been enjoying grand views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Chimneytop Mountain and Rock Mountain. A wonderful retreat for families and noted for its imaginative children’s programs, High Hampton Inn has been honored as one of 100 Best Family Resorts. Vacation homes and quaint cottages are also available throughout the property’s 1,400 acres. The Inn and Country Club is a favorite spot for corporate retreats, weddings and family reunions. Pay regular visits to the Inn while you bide your time patiently waiting for a Silver Creek broker to call with the good news that a High Hampton home has hit the market.
