Glassy View Bed and Breakfast

131 RED TURNER RD , Landrum, 29356 USA (Show map)


Only 45 Minutes from Greenville, SC. Three Guest Rooms. One Outstanding View. The Glassy View Bed & Breakfast is nestled comfortably on 12.5 acres in a secluded meadow where mist settles in the late evening and draws back with the rising sun. Breakfast is served in the privacy of your apartment or common area or on the porch overlooking the meadows and Glassy Mountain to the north. And off premises, Landrum has much to offer! The Foothills Equestrian & Nature Center, historic downtown Landrum, numerous natural areas, adventurous attractions and more are within easy reach. For the city lover, downtown Greenville boasts Falls Park, a beautiful place to visit 22 mi. from our door. Cyclists, check out the Swamp Rabbit Trail for 12 miles (one way) of unencumbered riding through the back-ways of Travelers Rest, Furman University and Greenville. For the Mountain lover take a drive west to Flat Rock, Hendersonville (home of many apple orchards and a yearly Festival), or even The Blue Ridge Parkway located near Ashville all in the beautiful state of NC. To the south you'll find Table Rock Mountain, a little further and you'll run up on Caesar's Head. We fell in love with Glassy View, and we know you will too. The mountains, attractions and people— all of this draws us. If it draws you, then give us a call. And may God bless you in your travels.

Perfect Weekend Retreat

5 on February 24, 2018

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glassy View Bed and Breakfast in February 2018. The owners are incredibly kind and accommodating, very knowledgable about the surrounding areas and easy to talk to. The farmhouse was spacious and a great value. The breakfasts were outstanding with lots of special touches like homemade granola and fresh fruit every morning. We liked that the location was secluded but not far to the north and south there was plenty to do for day trips. We felt so welcome and we could certainly see ourselves coming back in the future!

About the innkeepers

The Glassy View residence was built in 2006. The Vanderweys acquired it in 2014 with the hope of one day perhaps having a bed and breakfast. Both of us had seen our share of setbacks in life, but neither of us could have imagined what God had in store. There is always much more to do and improvements are being made regularly. We are grateful for this opportunity. We are living our dreams in a beautiful place. We can't wait to meet the people that walk through our doors! —Ron and Tammy
