I'm trying to plan a short mountain jaunt to see the fall color. I've pretty much decided on a two day tour of the Cherokee Foothills Highway, a 115 mile scenic road that runs from Gaffney to the GA/SC border.
What I'd like to do is stay somewhere in the middle - around Greenville - and tour the highway in two chunks, one way one day, the other way the next day. That'll leave plenty of time for hiking to waterfalls and stopping by interesting places.
Problem is what appears to be a profound lack of hotels in the area. I have been told about cabins for rent in a couple of the state parks, but I am afraid to book one sight unseen. Remember, my idea of "roughing it" is a hotel without room service.
I'm looking at two B&B's in Landrum - The Red Horse Inn and the Barking Fox Farm. Anyone out there in blog land know of them? Or anything else in the region you'd like to suggest?
Loki sez: What do you mean you are going out of town? Who will feed me? I mean, us? How will we open the cans? We don't have thumbs! We'll starve! That's right, starve! You'll come home to three dried up cat skeletons and it'll all be your fault! I...what? Oh, granny is coming to feed us? Nevermind.
