Fodor's Expert Review High Hampton Resort

1525 NC 107 S, Cashiers, North Carolina, 28717, USA

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

With its rustic rooms and cottages, the High Hampton Resort (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) feels like you stepped back in time. You won't find TVs, phones, or air-conditioning in most rooms, and meals are served in a hunting lodge–like dining room . The resort is undergoing a much-need upgrade and many changes are under way.
