“We enjoy the quiet solitude of mountain living, paired with unlimited culture and sporting venues within a short distance. We are Patrons of the Peace Centre in Greenville, SC, which is only a 45-minute drive away. And Currahee members, as well as the Toccoa community, are warm, friendly and welcoming.” Rick and Letha
“There’s nothing better than sitting on your back screened-in porch in the mornings or evenings, sipping on coffee and listening to the leaves fall and the animals scurrying. You are simply enjoying God’s beauty and blessings.” Janney and Cynthia
