Earthshine Discovery Center

The all-inclusive Earthshine Discovery Center delivers an eclectic range of experiences. On Pioneer Mornings, you can apprentice in a blacksmith shop, spin wool and make hand-dipped candles, while on Cherokee Mornings, you can discover the traditional ways of the Native American tribe with activities that include clay bead making and grinding corn. Because the resort believes that family vacations are about quality time together, you will find activities suitable for a wide range of ages — rock wall climbing, zip-line courses and barnyard hikes are just a few of the bonding experiences on offer. Rates include activities, hearty home-cooked meals (BYOB) and accommodations. Storybook-worthy rooms are housed in the hand-built cedar lodge, and the Sunrise Cottage offers a selection of larger family suites.
