My husband and I had a nice romantic getaway at the Rainbow's End Resort the weekend of October 22-24. It was a perfect weekend to relax and have some quiet time together. The cabin was cute and cozy with a wood burning stove which the manager was thoughtful enough to start for us before we arrived. We had a beautiful view of the lake and was able to sit on the front porch with a hot cup of coffee (the resort has two chairs in front of each cabin for the guests). The cabin had all the comforts of home including a little fridge, stove, and dishes for cooking and eating.
We also enjoyed a gorgeous drive up to Greer on Saturday to see the leaves changing colors and take a little hike up along the river bank. On the way back we ate at Waldo's BBQ Pit which is right behind KFC. The owner and his wife were wonderful people and the food was delicious. The pull pork sandwich was our favorite. We will definitely be going back there again to eat.
All in all, it was the perfect weekend. We can't wait to find time and babysitter again to head back up north.
