What to Do: Relax and do nothing, or as an alternative you could:

Hike along the foothills trail; two access points are within a mile of the cabin.

Visit Sassafras Mountain, the highest point in South Carolina. Follow Van Clayton Highway across Highway 178 from cabin, about 5 miles to parking lot and short walk, about 200 yards, to marker.

Golf: Follow Highway 178 to riding stables just before Highway 11 to the Rock, a picturesque mountain golf course with a spectacular waterfall on one of its holes.

Fishing:Try our trout stream or other close at hand trout streams. For serious trout fishermen the Davison River, over the hill just past Brevard, is considered by many to be one of the worlds best native trout streams. Lake Jocassee has record sized trout and good small mouth bass fishing: Lake Keowee is known for its large mouth bass fishing.

Swimming: Swim in the pool near the basketball goal, Rocky Bottom creek, the lakes or scores of other close at hand locations.

Hunting: Close access to large and small game hunting in the Jocassee Gorges Wilderness. The Laurel Valley access point is less than two miles from cabin.

Bobís Place: Approximately 5 miles down Highway 178 toward Pickens is the oldest continuously operating beer joint in South Carolina. It looks rough but it isnít, and Mrs. Johnson, the proprietor, is a delight. Bobís was the primary location used for the filming of the award winning film, The Long Journey Home, a Big Foot Movie. Mrs. Johnson and her patrons made up most of the cast of characters.

Twin Falls: Turn right at Bobís place, right again after bridge over river then right at sign for falls, cross river again on wooden bridge and follow gravel road to parking lot. Short walk to Twin Falls aka Reedy Cove Falls. Well worth the drive and walk.

Dining: Several fine dining establishments can be found in Brevard. The Jordan Street Cafť, The Falls Landing, Hob Nob Restaurant and Dugan's Pub are all worth the drive. You can enjoy a good country breakfast or lunch at the Holly Springs store at the intersection of Hwy 178 & 11 or further on up Hwy 11,near Table Rock at Aunt Sueís.

Brevard: There is always something to do in Brevard and it is a fun place to visit and shop. The easiest way to get there is to follow Highway 178 to Rosman and Highway 64 to Brevard.

Blue Ridge Parkway: The premier scenic parkway East of the Mississippi. An enjoyable day trip is to follow Highway 178 thru Rosman, turn left on Highway 64, then right on Highway 215 up through Balsam Grove to the parkway. At that point you could go left toward Cherokee and the Great Smoky Mountains, right toward Ashville or continue straight over the mountain to Waynesville, have lunch, shop and then travel back over the mountain to Brevard and back to the cabin.

Waterfalls: There are an abundance of waterfalls to visit in both South and North Carolina, all within easy driving distance, so many that it would take several weeks to visit all of them. We try to keep waterfall maps and books in the cabins, or you will be able to find them at the Holly Springs Country Store or over in Brevard. Some waterfalls are just off various highways and most are but a short walk from a parking area.

Moonshining: There are several distillers of high quality shine alleged to operate in the area however we are not permitted to give out their names and most especially their product. Sorry about that.
