Overview

Caesars Head House Rental Photos and Description

One Level House, Garage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 4-5)

When you've 'had enough' of the daily grind, enjoy Fall / Winter in the Mountains! The Back Deck might be your favorite place to relax with a drink in the afternoon, while 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. The Clubhouse area offers WI-FI, 2 Tennis Courts overlooking our beautiful 7 acre lake, playground, 2 swimming pools.

In 2013 National Geographic Magazine ranked Caesars Head State Park, a wilderness treasured by locals but virtually unknown outside South Carolina, in the Top 10 of the Worlds 100 Best Hidden Adventures. 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.

About John Hicks

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

Why John Hicks chose Caesars Head

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Perfect Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving weekend. The home is just that… home. Warm, well stocked and tastefully decorated it is a VRBO property that we will definitely pay a return visit. John was a great host- providing easy directions and places to visit. We are frequent VRBO renters and this home is in a class by itself.

Quiet Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a great rental home! From the well-stocked kitchen to the cozy fireplace in the living area, this mountain home was everything we had hoped for. We were there for three full days and were able to explore Greenville, Hendersonville, DuPont Forest, Travelers Rest, Hincapie's Hotel Domestic, Victoria Valley Vineyards, and much more. We found it very easy to ride our bicycles right out the front door and down either side of Caesars Head Mountain and the lookout view from atop Caesars Head was a breathtaking view for sunrise and sunset (we made time for both)!

This was a vacation we'll remember in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for sharing! Caesars Head and surroundings are a hidden gem for bicycling anytime - especially during the fall. Hope to see you again on your next getaway to the mountains.

Great home in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for our 33rd anniversary trip. The home was perfect for us! We had all conveniences that we needed. House was very clean. The first 2 days it rained so we did not venture far, but after that we had an amazing time in this mountain area. Very close to Ceasars Head State Park and a short drive to North Carolina and Dupont State Park. Plenty of waterfalls in the area. And the views were amazing. The only thing is we did not get cell service at the house, but there is a landline at the house. (for local calls only). We did find we got a cell signal at Ceasars Head State Park so the parking lot there became a regular stop for us on the way back to the house. And the white squirrels, finally got to see one in the back yard on our last day! We rent homes wherever we travel, and I will say this is at the top of our list. Perfect!

Lovely, secluded home on Caesar Head Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time in your home. The house was so comfortable for all of us and had all the amenities needed to fix a few breakfasts and dinners. We thank you so much for sharing it with us. So quiet and peaceful; we had restful nights and loved the mountains. My husband's parents are in their 70s and absolutely loved the house and area. We enjoyed a trip to Atlanta to see the Collegiate Football Hall of Fame, shopping in Tigertown and a football game at Death Valley to see our Clemson team win, and the lookout at Caesar Head - Beautiful!. Brevard is also a charming town filled with nice shops, etc. I wanted to see the elusive white squirrel so badly, but no go. I hear there are quite a few at the Brevard College. I'll have to keep that one on the list for next time. What a wonderful vacation. Thank you.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience for my family. We loved the house and the owners were great to work with. It was a beautiful quaint house located in the middle of two State Parks. Lots of critters and beautiful foliage. We're already making plans to return in the near future.
