  • Stopped to enjoy music on the porch by Tom Roush on a clear Sunday afternoon. The general store has consignment booths with handmade articles by locals, offers hot dogs and ice cream and homemade breads. The lookout tower is not for the faint of heart. Children were enjoying the swinging bridge connecting viewing platforms. Truly a gem in the middle of winding mountain roads and a particularly good stop for motorcyclists.
  • Great views. Friendly staff. Always have the opportunity to meet local artists, musicians, authors, or craftsmen on weekends. You can grab hot dogs and ice cream there but it is a good place to pack a picnic too. Make sure to walk around the trails.
  • Felt a little rickety, but great fun. Beautiful views and an awesome country store with live music! Only $6 to climb the tower.
  • Always hospitable staff and great views! Cute handmade crafts inside.
  • This is an awesome place. We have been there twice now. We have climbed the sketchy over sized erector set, over feet tall, if I remember​ correctly. It's a bit scary. The souvenir store is quite pricey, but cute, rustic, and quaint.
