        Stable View

        Graniteville, South Carolina

        Stable View has incorporated 10 full RV hookup sites into the property as a means to accommodate more guests. Used for horse show competitors, wedding attendees, or RV enthusiasts, these sites are a cost effective way to stay on-site and experience all Stable View has to offer.

        Over the past few years we’ve invested in the infrastructure of Stable View so that separate from Equestrian activities, it could be used for Weddings, Corporate Retreats and Family Reunions. As a result being able to purchase an additional 850 acres the property increased in size from 160 to 1,000 acres. In keeping with one of our core values, we decided to introduce a wild life and habitat management program.

        Environmental concern is at the center of this development which has been focused on our LEED (Gold) Certified Pavilion and our management of the surrounding area.

        Our intention is to participate to the fullest extent in the South Carolina Agritourism Association and to introduce Ecotours to Stable View.
