Area Attractions

There is plenty to see and do. The Western North Carolina/Upstate South Carolina area is well known for its natural beauty, artist communities and recreational facilities. We are located adjacent to Jones Gap and Caesar's Head State Parks, a part of the 10,000-acre Mountain Bridge Wilderness area, a protected environment for many rare and endangered plant and animal species.

Pentimento is a great base for exploring the surrounding area whether it's hiking to one of our many waterfalls or a short excursion to sightsee, antique, shop, and dine in Brevard, Hendersonville or Asheville.

And, of course, some come to Pentimento simply to enjoy a quiet read sitting on the porch.
