Hi--we're thinking of taking a 3-4 day or maybe even a full week trip to the Clemson area and need suggestions of a nice place to stay. We are making this trip to check out Clemson as a possible place for a relative to retire. But that's a secondary goal, we're really looking for a vacation.

A place on or near a lake would be ideal. Are there any resorts there that you'd recommend? A hotel would be fine, too. Is there anything to do there at night (a local playhouse, maybe?) We're not into golf or tennis, but we do love water sports. Horse riding might be fun, or hiking, or walking through quaint towns. Are there possibly any beaches near you?

We're very flexible, can come any time of the summer or fall (although summer works better if it's at all tolerable).

Does any of this sound like it matches your area?

Here is a bed and breakfast out on highway 11. It has views of the table rock mountain and says it is close to the state park which has a nice lake. It is about 40 minutes or so from clemson and maybe the same from gville. It looks nice.

You might try The Reserve at Lake Keowee. They offer a guest house with six suites and extensive real estate discovery packages available.

Also be sure to check out The Cliffs Communities and consider participating in their extensive discovery tour (http://www.cliffscommunities.com/discover-the-cliffs/ - broken link) as guests. One of their favorite options for guest lodging and dining is the award-winning La Bastide Country Inn (http://www.cliffscommunities.com/la-bastide/default.asp - broken link), a recommended hotel by Conde Nast Johansens.

The Guest House at the Reserve sounds perfect, I'll definitely look into it. What do you think of the idea of visiting in July? How's the weather at that time of year?

And is there any sort of a play house or maybe a place to hear music? I've heard there's a theatre in Henderson NC which looks like about an hour's drive. Is there anything closer?

I do apologize for being so ignorant about the area. The more I take a look at western South Carolina the more I'm getting excited about this, looks like Dad may have found a gem after all.

Oh, one other question: What's the best way to get there from Dulles Airport (Washington DC)? Should I fly to Charlotte and then Greenville, or is there a better option? Or can I take a train to Greenville?

we drive from here to md. alot. I take i95 to i85 and it takes you right into sc and our area. There are many little playhouses here. Off the top of my head I believe there is one in clemson, seneca, and easley. A larger one in gville. Our weather right now is in the low to mid 90's. I think it is warm but I prefer cooler times.

Um, fly into Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. There are direct flights from Dulles to Greenville many times throughout the day.

You're probably referring to Flat Rock Playhouse, just outside Hendersonville. It has a great history and reputation... worth the drive.

Brevard, NC is just above Travelers Rest and offers a lot of musical events in the summer. Brevard Music Center

Sorry I don't know anything about playhouses closer by. I've only lived here about a year.
