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 for
ministers attending conferences, now families, groups, church professionals,
children and youth of all ages, and
individuals enjoy the peaceful mountain setting and warm hospitality.
The William Brearley
Home has 16 guestrooms 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
addition to the house in 1985 and renovated in 2008. It
features a queen size bed, sitting area, kitchen, and private bath. A true shift into
moderately luxurious lodging at a great rate!
