"My wife and I took the day tripper package here and we were not disappointed. The falls are just amazing and worth the hike. The lunch was wonderful and they did not skimp on anything. There are several places to enjoy nature."

For those who wish to enjoy our property but not to reserve a room or book an event, our day-tripper package may or may not be available depending on existing room or event reservations.
By reservation-only, the day-tripper includes a hearty sack lunch as well as private, all-day access to a forested, forty-acre property with incredible scenery and a variety of activities...
hiking to overlooks & base of Carmac Falls
swimming beneath its 90ft cascade
fishing at Evins Mill Pond
billiards, table tennis, foosball & darts
lawn games, including corn hole, horse shoes
swinging & rocking on Ivy Overlook
relaxing/napping at our Hammock Bower
Two dirt trails lead to Carmac Falls. The North Trail begins by the Main Lodge and leads to the North Overlook, which offers the most spectacular overhead view of Carmac Falls. The trail to the North Overlook is one mile there and back and features modest elevation changes. Accessing the overlook requires crossing a creek, which can usually be accomplished without getting one's shoes wet.
The South Trail begins by the Gristmill and is the only way to access the base of Carmac Falls, where there is a pristine swimming hole and which is one and a half miles there and back. Unlike the North Trail, the trail to the South Overlook is relatively flat, but the final descent to the base is steep, involves a significant elevation change and in one stretch borders a precipice.
Available to-go, sacklunchesinclude...
sandwich (turkey, ham, roast beef, tuna, veggie)
side du jour
