House of Cards filming

Kevin Spacey was just in town!!!  And we are so excited around here, folks.  Are you watching the series!?  "Kevin Spacey made an unannounced appearance at The Peachoid.  With a bottle of champagne in hand, accompanied by his dog, Boston, (he) tweeted, “With Boston toasting the Emmy noms at real Peachoid in Gaffney, South Carolina. She's drunk with pride.”  85-26 By Dan Armonaitis -, Spartanburg Herald Journal.

All of our White House staff and Presidential team welcome you to the area where we live. You'll enjoy our local folk, how people grow up around here - and the 5th District.  You might have thought this would be a trip to the backwoods or country, but, we can be quite savvy...

We have so many guests that enjoy visiting this area and especially Gaffney for photos with our peach and massive outlet shopping.  We just had a whole House of Cards special dinner and folks from New York were antagonizing others on Facebook with their own selfies and our Peachoid!

House of Cards is an American political drama television series, developed and produced by Beau Willimon.  It's an adaptation of a previous BBC mini-series of the same name and is based on the novel by Michael Dobbs.  The entire first season, thirteen episodes, premiered on February 1, 2013, on Netflix.  A second season of thirteen episodes premiered on February 14, 2014.  On February 4, 2014, ten days prior to the first available streaming release of the second season, Netflix announced that the show had been renewed for a third season.

Set in present-day Washington, D.C., House of Cards is the story of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a Democrat from our area of South Carolina's 5th congressional district and House majority whip who, after being passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, initiates an elaborate plan to get himself into a position of power (he just became President). The series is primarily about ruthless pragmatism, manipulation, power and doing bad things for the greater good.  The series also stars Robin Wright, Kate Mara, and Corey Stoll in lead roles.

On July 18, 2013, Netflix earned the first Primetime Emmy Award nominations for original online-only web television. House of Cards received nine of Netflix's fourteen total nominations. Among its nine nominations were Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Kevin Spacey, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Robin Wright, and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for David Fincher. The show also earned four Golden Globe Award nominations on December 12, 2013. House of Cards received the first major acting award for an online-only web television series when Wright won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Drama.

Filming has occurred locally and the inn has welcomed the entire team and crew to stay. We'll keep you posted just as soon as we are allowed to release anything more to the public!
