This was a nice stop along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs. The view was absolutely breathtaking! The weather was cool. Also enjoyed the gift shop.

Great stop off the blue ridge parked to see the old Cone family summer home. Downstairs are quality crafts for sale and upstairs is a free tour with the history of the house and the Cone's. Lots of great hiking trails nearby as well.

Nice stop. Home has local artist work. Everything from jewelry to weaved baskets. There are several different trails you can walk for endurance levels or you can sit and enjoy a beautiful view. Enjoyable for all ages :)
