Fodor's Review

With its rustic rooms and cottages, the High Hampton Inn (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) feels unplugged and family-oriented. You won't find TVs, phones, Wi-Fi, or air-conditioning in most rooms, and even cell reception is spotty. Meals are served buffet-style in a hunting lodge–like dining room. On the front lawn of this mid-19th-century inn are some of the most ancient trees in the region, including a giant Fraser fir with a circumference of more than 134 feet. Many of the buildings are bark-covered, and inside the main building, you'll find rare wormy chestnut and a large four-sided fireplace. There's an 18-hole golf course, tennis, and a 35-acre private lake (but no swimming pool), along with many hiking trails. There are some modern amenities, such as a 5,500-square-foot fitness center and spa. Rates in the rooms and cottages generally include all meals, while those in the vacation rentals do not.
