This picturesque collection of roadside buildings was designed to attract the attention of automobile tourists and others traveling to and through the Blue Ridge Mountains. The lodge section has flared-gable entrance porticoes and arched doorways to the rooms. A detached restaurant building has similar features, with the addition of a dominant front chimney. The restaurant's wood-paneled interior incorporates banks of windows, a massive fireplace, and an unusual series of graduated trusses that support the ceiling of its shed roof.
