And the Orvis goes to...Harris Springs Sportsman's Preserve
Every year Orvis selects a lodge for their Lodge of the Year award and this year Harris Springs Sportsman's Preserve in SC made the grade. There are three criteria for a lodge being endorsed—resources, hospitatlity, and the facility itself. Harris Springs has been a family-run business since 1896. It started as a hotel where guest from up and down the east coast came to take the waters at the local mineral springs. The Rasor family owns and manages the lodge, which offers sporting clays, early-release and preserve quail, pheasant and chuckar, as well as wild eastern turkey.
