There are great lodging choices in both Highlands and Cashiers. Our top choices include:
The Inn at High Hampton: Located in Cashiers, this is a resort that has been there since 1933. It is known for its golf course and beautiful grounds. Guests stay in rustic cabins located around the main club house. The main lodge has a comfortable living room area focused on large stone fireplaces and rustic dining room.. First constructed in 1922, the structure is now included on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
This mountain retreat is re-opening in April 2021, with restored rooms, cabins and two restaurants, all overseen by the team behind Blackberry Farm. The food and beverage crew includes Blackberry Farm and Blackberry Mountain alums. I am excited to visit on my next trip. I have been to Blackberry Farm twice in the past, and the food is always incredible.
