Earthshine Discovery Center
Enriching attractions at this all-inclusive retreat highlight ways of life for Native Americans and early American settlers.
Education and enrichment for families is the focus at the all-inclusive Earthshine Discovery Center. Forget about typical resort activities like tennis and spa treatments. Here guests will gain respect for tradition, as they discover old ways of life at pioneer and Cherokee "villages," participate in hands-on earth sciences activities and explore the natural wonders of the property's 80 acres of forest and pastureland. Adventurers will appreciate the many ways to get the pulse pounding: high and low ropes courses, creek hikes and zip lining. Meals are hearty, beginning with breakfast dishes like grits and homemade granola; lunch fare and snacks to keep up your energy during the day; and dinners of rainbow trout or barbecue ribs, followed by apple cobbler and pecan pie. Rates are terrific value and include all meals, snacks, beverages (except alcohol, but you can bring your own), all activities and accommodation in the lodge or cottage. Because of its unique and varied offerings, Earthshine is a popular choice for family reunions and corporate retreats.
