Double front porches like this always make us think of lazy days in the Lowcountry, sweet tea the only antidote for sweltering heat.

A getaway (or stay awhile) to the mountains keeps the summer heat at bay, cool mornings and nights and refreshing breezes making memories of sweltering days a thing of the past.

If you can’t take the heat, don’t stay out of the kitchen. Heavens no.

And a beautiful dining spot allows for cool, easy summer entertaining.

A stately and masculine retreat allows for playing inside games–like pool–until the cool breezes of pheasant season come back around. Indoors and out, in any season, the good taste of Spitzmiller and Norris speaks for itself.
