I loved this place! You will go up a windy road and then down a gravel entranceway. You will see a beautiful arts and crafts inn with huge fireplaces, broad porches, lovely rooms with gorgeous bathrooms with a view and the highest thread count sheets on which I have ever slept. Oh and each room has a wood burning fireplace. Real wood-not electric.
The breakfast is great but the dinners, ah the dinners. Some of the best food we had on our vacation and we went to Charleston after this. The friendly chef made a southern whipped cream cake that was amazing. Bring your own beer or wine. They have snacks in the afternoon .
We took a long hike on the beautiful trail. We kept coming across areas where they had placed lounges for looking at the view , or horseshoe pits or badmitton courts.
They have three friendly but very well behaved black labs who will walk a bit with you if you are in the mood. They have a good library They have a staff which truly enjoys what they do and shares that joy with you.
We will be going back
