Lois and I thought we have earned a little R and R so we are leaving Friday morning for a weekend on the Blueridge Parkway. We will be at the Little Switzerland Inn this Friday. It is 30 miles North of Ashville. A great place to stay, with wonderful views of the mountains and a fantastic seafood and prime rib buffet on Friday night. Saturday evening we hope to stay at Pisgah Inn South of Ashville if they have a cancellation and we can get a room. I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!

Dang, I love prime rib and the wife loves sea food. I'm meeting up with RayandTracey on Friday at Maggie Valley or I'd run up there to join you for dinner.

Would love to but I think by the time they drive down from PA they will be a little saddle sore when they get to Maggie Valley!

We might be able to meet up with ya on Saturday though.

Lois and I save up for this trip every year. They are pricey but the food really is very good. We don't do any long trips anymore so we do splurge on this weekend on the BRP. We will be in a '92 polo green Corvette. Wave if you happen to see us. Lois can't ride the bike so we drive the car. Have a good, safe holiday weekend!

There's a place I love for it's prime rib. It's on Lake Lanier near Tryon, NC, right on the state line. It's Called the Tea Room and you have to call for a reservation. It has an outdoor patio with a view straight down the middle of the lake and is very beautiful at night when a full moon comes up over the south end of the lake. It's also one of those once a year kind of places for us. It's only open on the weekends.

My wife and I stayed at Little Switzerland once and had to laugh because the meal was twice the price of the lodging at the biker cabins.

Lake Lanier Tea House
The Tea House overlooking Lake Lanier in northern Greenville County offers fine dining away from the bustle of downtown. It’s settled with a perfect view of the lake, with plenty of outdoor seating to take in the view. The restaurant has a lot of history. It originally opened in 1925, but it has recently come under new management when the original owner passed away. During cold weather, large fireplaces keep the dining room cozy, but the large windows keep the view of the lake in sight. Some of the top selling dishes include the rack of lamb and Alaskan halibut, but they offer specials nightly. Insiders know to keep a lookout for the former owner’s dog, who still lives up the street from the restaurant and often pays diners a visit on the outside patio.

Bagmaster,

We are going to visit Lake Lanier during our visit to the BRP. Prices sound comparable to Little Switzerland and Pisgah Inn. And I managed to get reservation at Pisgah too.
