Near enough to major state and national attractions, such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, country music’s birthplace along the Crooked Road and the Appalachian Trail, we are the scenic setting where town and country meet.

Lakes, mountains, creeks, streams, and rolling hills make it only natural you’d want to visit and are only one part of why you’ll find you want to stay.

Dogwood blossoms and mountains laurels lace springtime in Smyth County with promise and in fresh, fragrant delight. Sultry southern summer sunsets give way to soft layers of fog-laden mountain ridges that go on forever in the quiet blue sky of twilight.
