We have been to Earthshine 3 times! And since we did disney this past spring my kids (ages 7 and 11) had something to compare and EARTHSHINE was the hands down favorite vacation. The staff is super engaging and friendly. and the food is wonderful. Our youngest has taken an interest in reptiles due to Steve, the naturalist on staff. Every staff member is there to make you happy and genuinely seem happy to be there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. and there are activities for the adventurous or you can spend your days just relaxing.
As soon as we pulled in the drive way my kids got out of the car and started hiking and couldn't wait to see the staff members that they consider friends. I enjoyed resting on the porch before dinner, reading my book and enjoying the view.
Sample menu from our week: salmon w/hollendaise, BBQ ribs and chicken, Chicken pot pie, pork chops for dinner. Breakfast was eggs, grits, chocolate chip pancakes, blackberry pancakes, blueberry pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits with gravy ALL HOME MADE. and the deserts were decadent.
We are already planning our next trip to earthshine!
and make sure to pack extra clothes! you will get dirty!
