Experience Hay Creek Hotels

A Collection of Timeless Boutique Hotel Properties

Your real journey begins once you arrive. Hay Creek Hotels are created for travelers who seek a deeper natural connection to the places they visit. Drawing inspiration from the architecture, culture and lifestyle that make any destination unique, our hotels are intrinsic reflections of their surroundings, whether it’s Charleston, South Carolina’s antebellum graciousness; or the charm of a 19th-century retreat on Lake Winnipesaukee. With a passion for sharing our favorite local cuisine, traditions and experiences, we offer a rich and authentic immersion into the locales we call home.

Hay Creek Hotels. As unique as the destinations we serve.

Who We Are

Hay Creek Hotels specializes in providing management solutions for full service, independent hotels, inns and resorts that are smaller in size yet grand in character.  Understanding early on that upscale full-service boutique hotels cannot be successfully managed by using standardized franchise hotel management practices, we developed the “Hay Creek System” management platform to implement across all of our properties. Our system actively provides precise and agile management solutions designed to offset the traditional operating shortcomings experienced by most small independent hotels. 



Hay Creek has built its reputation on creating one- of-a kind properties and experiences that capture the essence of each destination.



Each Hay Creek restaurant is distinguished by sophisticated yet casual ambiance and cuisine that delivers both comfort and surprise with each bite.



Our holistic spas are known for all-natural treatments, inspired by local traditions and products that soothe the mind, body and soul



Our golf courses compliment our hotels by offering guests an escape to explore the natural landscape of their locations.
