We welcome traveling equestrians AND folks without horses visiting the area. Studio apartment is attached to the barn. Recommend 2 guests bunking, but sofa bed can accommodate 1-2 more. There is a scenic short trail system along the creek. Additional fee for equestrians is $30 per horse to include pasture and/or stall availability. We do not host those who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Please contact me if you are interested in dates that are 'blocked' on the calendar.
The guest suite is a rustic studio apartment we remodeled in 2016 that is attached to the barn. We do offer light sustenance for a continental style breakfast in the apartment, and there is a microwave, mini fridge/freezer, and Keurig. Please note that we are rather 'off the grid', as we do not have Internet access to offer. Our guest use their phones as 'hot spots' to access Internet.
Please let us know in your reservation request if you are bringing horses. We offer wonderful equine amenities- RV/trailer parking; septic hook-up under the RV shelter; large circular drive for easy rig turn-around; separate pasture space with smooth hot wire; round pen for easy turn-out (75' diameter); and short trail system along the creek. Please call for barn stall availability. We are located 10 miles from Clemson and 24 miles from Greenville. FYI Equestrians- we are 19 miles from Clemson's T. Ed Garrison Arena; 1 1/2 hours from Tryon International Equestrian Center in NC; and just under 3 hours from Aiken, SC.
Guests have access to trails on the property. We do ask that guests not access our home and fenced back yard, as well as our animal pastures (containing horses and pigs). Please be aware that the pasture fencing is electric!

No surprise- we keep a busy schedule with property maintenance, full-time jobs at Clemson University and school/athletic activities. Therefore we may not have much time to socialize, but we look forward to greeting and making time to assist our guests as best we can.
1) The apartment is built off the side of the barn, and although it is a very clean and comfortable space, it may be not suitable for those with severe allergies (animal/outdoor). 2) The interior walls of the apartment are made of a beautiful 'rough cut' wood, and this may not be a suitable environment for all young children, as it could possibly create splinters if rubbed on substantially. 3) The gravel drive leading to our property is not paved and can be somewhat rutted at times depending on the weather. 4) Unfortunately, we do not offer Internet. We are too far 'off the grid'.

We moved from the City of Clemson and bought our 23 acre equine farm in late 2015 to live with our horses and enjoy the beauty and privacy of country life. My husband and I both work at Clemson University, and our 2 children attend elementary and middle school. We have a small herd of 4 beautiful horses, 2 adorable mini pot-bellied pigs, a sweet aging farm dog named Clemson, and adventurous barn kitties. My husband is originally from Portland, OR, and I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. We have lived in South Carolina for over 23 years. We met in Charleston while living at Folly Beach and married 20 years ago. We moved to Columbia for graduate school, only to later move back to the Lowcountry, where we welcomed our 2 children into the world while living in West Ashley. In 2008, we moved to the Upstate, where we have put down permanent roots. We were accepted to Clemson University's New and Beginning Farmers Program in 2016, and we are slowly beginning a small-scale organic farming operation. Our lifestyle goals are to learn to live more sustainably and utilize renewable resources. Due to my lactose and gluten intolerances, I have a particular interest in learning to grow more of our own food and 'eat out of the garden'. We love our country life- watching our horses graze outside our windows; staring in awe at breath-taking sunrises and sunsets; listening to the morning and evening sounds of nature; learning to work our land; and having our children experience it all with us.
