Your room will be ready by 3:00 pm the day prior to the start of your class.

Dinner will be served at 7:30 pm. If possible, please let us know when we should be expecting you. We are in a rural setting so deer other wildlife are prevalent on the back roads. Extra caution should be used if arriving later in the day.

Directions to 4935 Buckhead Road, Blair, SC 29015:  from I-77 South

Travel South on I-77 (through Charlotte, towards Columbia),

Take exit 48 turning right onto Hwy 200 West.

(Bridge out at exit 48. Detour = take exit 46 and follow Detour signs. You will intersect with Hwy 200. Turn left onto Hwy 200 and continue with directions as usual)

Travel about 12 miles passing through two stop lights. Continue straight through the second light where Hwy 200 becomes Hwy 34.

Travel West on Hwy 34 for 13 miles until you reach a flashing red light at a 4-way stop called Salem Crossroads at the intersection of HWY 215 and Hwy 34.

Turn Right at the Salem Crossroads on to Hwy 215 N

Continue 2- 3 miles or until you see Buckhead road on the left.  Buckhead only goes Left there is no street to the right. (At or just before Buckhead road- on your right  you will see a sign on the right that says Blair followed by a  cinderblock building).

Turn left onto Buckhead Road and go 3-4 miles, passing straight through the intersection of Hwy 99 and Buckhead Road.

Continue for about a mile to 4935 Buckhead Road. The Mail box with the street number is on the right and the driveway is on the left. It is a large brick building set pretty far back from the road up a hill.

We've seen that addresses from a GPS and Google Maps this far out are often unreliable, although either should get you close enough to easily follow these directions.
