TreeHouse-like Setting next to Gorges State Park
We loved the awesome mountain view and peaceful forest setting of this 3rd Story Condominium that literally borders beautiful Gorges State Park. I never got tired of hearing the crickets at night and awaking to the sounds of birds singing every morning. We hiked a trail behind the property that led to an upper branch of Bear Wallow Falls then drove a couple miles the next day to hike the awesome Rainbow Falls and Turtleback Falls Trail at Gorges SP. (Bring your bathing suit! :) We spent another day at nearby Dupont National Park (30 miles); another must see and do! You won't find more beautiful falls than Triple Falls and Rainbow Falls.
The unit has a well-stocked kitchen with an generous supply of dishes and linens, bath towels, pillows, blankets, and soft bed sheets :). Plenty of reading material abounds. The furniture is a bit dated but the many toss pillows made it more comfortable. They even provided night-lights and a flashlight, and a yoga mat that enabled me to do my floor exercises each evening. We met several neighbors while there and all were very friendly. Ingles Grocery Store (with a great salad/food bar) is less than 10 miles away in Cashiers. The best homemade pies are two miles away at the Sapphire General Store!
Our one disappointment was that the appealing rock waterfall and heated pool shown in the pictures functions only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. We missed it by a week. Still, for those who like the outdoors and don't mind the two flights of stairs (good exercise), this place is an exceptional value. We miss it already and hope to return again soon!
Thank you for your 5 star review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
