Rattlesnake Lodge, NC

Located northeast of Asheville in the Pisgah National Forest, Rattlesnake Lodge was a summer home built beginning in 1904 and destroyed by fire in 1926. What a home it must have been, situated on a ridge overlooking what is now the Blue Ridge Parkway and complete with its own tennis court and outdoor pool.

We hiked from Ox Creek Road, just outside of the Blue Ridge Parkway, along a tiny part of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail which stretches the width of North Carolina.
