The William Brearley Home
McIver Williamson of Darlington, SC acquired the property and built the home in 1912, and named it for his boyhood pastor, the Reverend William Brearley. Originally a guest lodge, primarily for ministers attending conferences, the home is now available to families, groups, church professionals, children, youth and individuals. In other words, EVERYONE is welcome to enjoy the peaceful mountain setting and warm hospitality.
The William Brearley Home has 16 guest rooms and 8 (private use) hall bathrooms on the three floors of the home. The first floor also has a spacious lobby with a gas log fireplace and a meeting room where reading, table games, spiritual studies, worship and end of the day conversations take place. It also has a front porch overlooking the valley that provides opportunities for enjoying the view, reading and developing friendships. The ground floor houses the guest kitchen and the breakfast dining room.
The Home can provide an inexpensive alternative housing option for retreats, conferences, ski weekends, hiking and just plain old relaxing. The common areas in the home can be made available for groups needing meeting or gathering space. Kitchen use for catering needs is also available, if desired.
