CAROLINA SECLUDED MOUNTAIN RETREAT - CAESAR'S HEAD STATE PARK

Caesars Head House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Back Deck might be your favorite place to relax with a drink in the afternoon while enjoying near perfect 75 degree mountain breezes. Morning coffee might best be enjoyed in a Front Porch rocking chair. As nature surrounds, you spot a 'white squirrel' at play, some happy hummingbirds or a small deer hidden quietly in the woods. While walking around the community you see numerous stands of rhododendron on your way to the Clubhouse. There you'll find 2 Tennis Courts overlooking our beautiful 7 acre lake, playground, 2 swimming pools (one heated) and WI-FI Internet.

Just ¼ mile away is the dramatic overlook at the heart of Caesar's Head State Park. Hit the hiking trails to Raven Cliff Falls, where a suspension “Mountain Bridge” overlooks the 420 foot falls as they splash deep into the mountain cove below. Where the Eastern US Continental Divide marks the NC / SC state line you can ride up to 'Pretty Place', the aptly named open-air chapel popular for weddings with panoramic views.

Since it had a starring role during filming of 'THE HUNGER GAMES', nearby DuPont State Recreational Forest between Brevard and Hendersonville has become a must stop for movie pilgrims. Here, among the trails shaded by pines and popluars, is where you can discover a dramatic landscape of waterfalls, hidden lakes and fishing streams.

The quaint college town of Brevard, NC, famous for its summer music festivals, is a must stop for groceries, one-of-a-kind local shops and fine restaurants. Near Brevard is Pisgah National Forrest, where you can take a mountain stream plunge (if you dare) down the famous naturally formed “Sliding Rock”.

In Asheville tour the majestic Biltmore Estate or the NC Arboretum on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Discover a street festival in delightful Hendersonville or head south to visit vibrant, thriving Downtown Greenville's shops, restaurants and parks. From spectacular Lake Lure to the Blue Ridge Parkway, there's lots to see in every direction during your getaway to Caesar's Head, SC.

Caesar's Head State Park is located in the northern tip of Greenville County, South Carolina along scenic Highway 276 and is easily accessible from I-85 or I-26. Nearest Airports are Greenville-Spartanburg, SC International (GSP) and Asheville, NC Regional Airport (AVL).

* On Sunday mornings, from Memorial Day weekend through September 12, Faith Memorial Chapel @ Cedar Mountain hosts visiting clergy from throughout the Carolinas. These open-air, Nondenominational services continue a 72 year mountain tradition and begin 11 a.m.

Keywords: Your quiet adventure begins with this cozy, one-level “hideaway” in a naturally serene setting 3,000 feet above it all. You'll love this unique, open layout with every comfort you'd expect, and more. A traditional Kitchen “Keeping” section keeps visitors 'out from under' the busy Chef'. It flows openly into Dining / Den / Fireplace, TV area with 1/2 bath & double bed fold-out sofa. Front and Rear covered porches provide rocking relaxation. The 2 identical large Master Suites (1 w/ King & 1 w/Twin Beds) are on opposite ends for ultimate privacy. Each Suite includes new bedding, full bath & walk-in closets. Has Garage +additional parking. With lots to see and do nearby, it's IDEAL FOR 2 COUPLES OR FOR A FAMILY to enjoy and an AFFORDABLE mountain getaway.

We live in Texas yet found our slice of heaven at Caesar's Head, SC. In addition to the wooded environment we love the comfortable daytime temps and cool, crisp star filled evenings, especially when elusive 'Blue Ghost Fireflies' light up the night. When we're not here, it's great that others can enjoy it as much as we do.

John Hicks purchased this house in 2000

We knew this was someplace special when we first visited in 1995. Our attraction was the combination of quiet seclusion, natural beauty, perfect weather, beautiful plants, unusual wildlife, state parks and wonderful towns. For us there is no better place to relax and unplug.

The seclusion of 'Hicks Hideaway' provides a peaceful uncrowded, away-from-it-all feeling. While simple in design this nicely laid out home seems just perfect for us! When we're not working in the yard, fishing, hiking or exploring, we love getting together with our family & friends for cookouts and cocktails. Sometimes we just do nothing. The spender of Spring & Summer combined with the Fall foliage and mild Winters make this enjoyable anytime of the year.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
The home was clean and we were very comfortable. We enjoy hiking and most of our time was spent outdoors at DuPont and Caesars Head. The location of the home was perfect, we have spent a lot of time in this area and never get tired of the beauty. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. The Hick's were most accommodating.

PLEASANT SURPRISE

  • 5 of 5
Very relaxing and beautiful place. The location and Cliff Ridge Colony were great. Close to Brevard, Hendersonville, Greenville etc. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay without any surprises. Peak of the fall season added a lot as well. Very easy dealing with the owners and we had a smooth rental. Had been to Asheville and the Biltmore before, but it is close and worth a visit also. Nice restaurants in Brevard and Greenville as well. Again, just a very pleasant vacation.

RETIREMENT AREA HOUSE HUNTERS

  • 5 of 5
The house was spotless when we arrived. We met Robin the property manager and she was very helpful. We used the house as a base for looking around the area for a potential retirement move and were impressed by the natural beauty. We think it will work. The stars look like you can reach out and touch them, the white squirrels welcomed us and it was a very peaceful and restful place to stay. The motorcycling roads are awesome with plenty of curves and hills. John was very easy to work with and we thank him for allowing us to use his home.

Owner's Response: Roger, we happy to hear that the house served you well as a base to explore the region for possible relocation. I think biking a perfect way to truly experience this hidden gem in Upstate of South Carolina. We hope to see you back and thanks so much for your kind words.

NATIVES OF THE AREA.

  • 5 of 5
As a native returning after 59 years we were intrigued to learn of the white squirrels. We subsequently learned from two different sources that these animals are found only here and one place in Illinois. We saw several in the back yard. The house was exactly as advertised and a very nice place to stay. We spent much time on the back porch admiring the mountain cool weather, trees and humming birds. This place is close to many scenic and historical attractions. We were impressed with the Flat Rock Playhouse's presentation of Les Misarables, The view from Cesar's Head, Pretty Place, Lunch in Brevard and at Lake Keowee.

We plan to return.

Owner's Response: We're happy your return "home" was so enjoyable and thanks for sharing your experience with us. We find the elevated porch especially relaxing, almost like being at eye level with nature. We're glad you discovered us on VRBO and we look forward to your return!

HUMMINGBIRD HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The Hicks's home was in the beautiful community of Cliff Ridge. The house lacked for absolutely nothing, we had all the dishes, towels, everything we needed. The beds we so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the morning except the hummingbirds were calling us from the back porch. Oh boy were there hummingbirds, more than I have ever seen, darting in and out of the back porch to the feeders which we filled at least three times during a week! The house backed right up to the woods and it was so quiet, we saw a couple of white squirrels and just enjoyed the sounds of nature as I daughter was swinging in the large hammock below. Also took time to enjoy the beautiful 2 level community pool, although the water was a bit cool, the pool was just gorgeous! On our way out the morning we left we saw a deer and her 2 new born babies just barely walking, so incredible.
I would totally come back and stay. House was in a great location to visit, Brevard, Hendersonville, Flat Rock and other local attractions. We really enjoyed our stay!!

Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks for bringing in more Hummingbirds! It seems like everyone who visits has a uniquely different experience and we loved hearing about yours. It really is a great spot and it seems like more people are discovering it. We're delighted you found us on VRBO and we hope to see you again soon.
