    The old church really had gotten bad with the pealing and chipped old paint. The new paint job has made her look great. There are a few frescoes to see inside but it is a short visit but worth the stop.

    This old west town is a unique venue offering an up close and personal experience with musical artists from all genres of music. Small crowds and plenty of opportunity to meet the artists.

    Visit to see how cheese is made, then go over to store and if you love cheese you will find it there. Also have north carolina products like jar vegetables, candies, fruit cake and many other things.

    Sure, "just a wine shop." Or also a fabulous pitstop while on a girls weekend. I mean, really, what more could you ask for? Amazing selection of wines, well-priced tasting menus, snack trays, and big smiles from the staff. Have had an absolutely amazing time everytime I come in here.

    This is an 18 hole golf course that offers a fun yet challenging game of golf. The majority of the front nine holes are up or downhill. Some are dramatic downhill holes of No. 3 and No. 9 with scenic views and demanding course management. Other holes are subtle uphill holes making the hole play longer than it appears. No. 9 adds the challenge of a lake with green tucked behind trees. Long hitters beware of the lake. The drive needs to be long enough to give a clear shot and avoid group of trees protecting the green. The back nine may have a few flatter holes but they still bring in challenges of bunkers and even a creek or lake. No 9 has challenge of bizarre pot bunkers on the hillside left and a creek in front of green. Greens may be huge with lots of undulation. Consistently great golf course. Take time to enjoy some of the mountain scenery the course offers and delight on shots from the elevated tees.

    We can go to the matinee, get a large popcorn, large drink, a candy and water for $20! We love supporting Parkway Theater. They are a cash only place, so go to the ATM before visiting!

    Where do I even start? The escape room is unlike any I’ve ever seen. The details, clues and workings are VERY unique & the owner changes the escape room up quite often so you can go back for a brand new experience. The store itself has a little bit of everything-essential oils, beard oils, bath bombs, artwork, unique clothing and sooo much more! Definitely worth the trip up the red stairs!

    This is a great place to find things that you did not even know that you needed!
    The people are so friendly and helpful, and the prices on average are very reasonable, and many cases really inexpensive for what you get.
    Definitely a place we will come back to every chance we can!

    During your time in West Jefferson, you should be certain to meander down the side streets to the specialty shops. We stopped in at this little shop and found a friendly shop owner who took the time to answer our questions and chat about the unique food items he has to offer.

    We were able top find a unique HOT BBQ sauce as a gift for our son in law who thinks he is a habanero master. We shall enjoy his reaction to this hot sauce served in a container shaped like a grenade.

    We also purchased a deep dish hand made chicken pot pie. I look forward to serving it at brunch with a loaf of crunchy french bread and a garden salad.

    Specialty Foods with a unique flair.

    Loved the variety and some of the artwork in this little shop is outstanding! It was nice to see so many different artists' work. So glad they were still open when we stopped by.

    Such an authentic experience and so much fun! We loved it so much that we have annual Movie Lounger VIP passes and we love the perks of being VIPs at the BRML! I have attended a private party with a cool movie showing and also reserved the theater to show a movie to my class. I can’t wait to rent it for my sons in law to play a few video games there!
