Little Rainbow Row: The Gems of Flat Rock

Visitors driving through the downtown area of Flat Rock, NC along Greenville Highway are soon greeted by a cheerful strip of brightly colored shops and restaurants affectionately known as Little Rainbow Row.

Representing everything that locals and travelers alike love about our little village, Little Rainbow Row provides guests with an eclectic mix of dining and shopping opportunities amongst a charming series of historic buildings painted in gay tones of sky blue, hot pink, sunshine yellow and more. No matter whether your visiting for a spell at our Highland Lake rentals or your just passing through, this collection of Flat Rock’s gems are sure to make you smile.

Hubba Hubba Smokehouse

Carolinians flock from miles around to savor the incredible smokehouse BBQ and fixings cooked up at Hubba Hubba’s. Slow cooked for hours on end over wood fires until the meat falls right off the bone, this ain’t your run of the mill roadside BBQ shack: It’s art on a plate. If your passing through during the summer, be sure to visit on Saturday for their delicious smoked fish tacos.

Flat Rock Village Bakery

There’s nothing like visiting the Flat Rock Village Bakery and enjoying a fresh cup of coffee and a pastry while watching the world go by. With their friendly staff and back patio seating, this bakery is a second home to many locals and a great place to visit when your staying at our Highland Lake rentals. Be sure to pick up some brick oven bread or pizza while your there.

Hand in Hand Gallery

The Hand in Hand Gallery offers an eclectic collection of crafts, paintings and photographs created by local artisans. This region of the Carolinas has long been recognized as a source of some of the best pottery, furniture and other crafts in the country, and you’ll find out why as soon as you step in the door of the Hand in Hand Gallery.

The Wrinkled Egg

The Wrinkled Egg is generally considered the anchor of Flat Rock’s Little Rainbow Row. Best known for their selection of care packages and other essentials for young campers, The Wrinkled Egg also carries a wide variety of unique folk art and Life is Good brand clothing. Even if your just poking around, this is a cool locally-owned shop that you really don’t want to miss.

The Cherry Cottage Shops

Whether your looking for the perfect gift, commissioning a family portrait or just doing a little window shopping, Cherry Cottage Shops has something for just about everyone.
