Bobby’s Wolf Laurel Survival Guide and other fun stuff to do

Ultimate Local Destinations
These are the must see activities and destinations. Some are in the community and others in the surrounding area.
In the community. Enjoy exclusive access to the Big Bald trail located right in the Wolf Laurel Resort Community. Park at the end of Big Bald Road in the trailhead parking lot, and take an easy two mile hike to the top for spectacular 360 degree multi state views. See North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia from the top. If you have time you should continue north on the Appalachian Trail to Big Stamp, a bald sub peak of Big Bald. You can see open grass extending to Big Stamp from Big Bald, it is less than a mile between the peaks. The Bald Mountains are a mountain range rising along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina in the southeastern United States. They are part of the Blue Ridge Mountain Province of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The Bald Mountains stretch from the Pigeon River in the south to the Nolichucky River in the north, and comprise parts of Cocke County, Greene County, and Unicoi County in Tennessee and parts of Madison County and Yancey County in North Carolina. The Great Smoky Mountains border the range to the south, and the Unakas rise opposite the Nolichucky to the north. The range gets its name from the relatively frequent occurrence of grassy balds atop the more prominent summits.

If your visiting “beer city USA” Asheville, this is a great family friendly brewery. The first brewery on the Asheville beer scene established In December 1994, when downtown Asheville was sleepy, Highland rolled out its first kegs from the basement to the alley. Built almost entirely of retrofitted dairy equipment, our original brewery could produce up to 6,500 barrels of beer per year in about 12,000 square feet of space. Today, we have capacity to brew over 60,000 barrels annually with room to grow. Until 1998, our beer was available only in kegs and hand-filled 22-oz. bottles. (We still fill our liter bottles by hand today.) That year, we added a four-head bottling machine which enabled us to start packaging in 12-oz. bottles. In 2002, a used Krones bottling line was installed, capable of filling 7,200 12-oz. bottles per hour. Although we brewed twice daily, four days per week, the demand for our beer continued to exceed supply. We brew four times a day, five days per week on a 50-bbl brewhouse. Our cellar has 27 fermenters, mostly 200bbls in size, as well as 7 brite tanks. We can bottle up to 320 bottles per minute, averaging 800 cases per hour. Our bottling line is a state-of-the-art 2015 KHS 48-valve rotary machine. Our can filler, meanwhile, is a 2018 KHS volumetric 21 valve 3 head Ferrum seamer. This machine is capable of packaging 12 oz cans at a rate of 257 cans per minute(!). Our 3-barrel pilot system allows for R&D and collaborations. Added in 2010, it allows for a stream of new beers that the staff and guests can taste. In 2016 the view literally changed. We cut the ribbon on a rooftop bar that accommodates 300 people, and can be reserved for private events. We host weddings, rehearsals and corporate events. Below, the indoor Event Center welcomes over 700 people and is complete with stage, mezzanine, two bars, catering kitchen, and elevator

This is an all day excursion. Plan to leave Wolf Laurel at least 75 minutes before any event start times at the Estate to allow for satellite parking and shuttle to Estate. Antler Village, the petting zoo, horseback riding and more. The ultimate Asheville destination. The luxurious family home of George and Edith Vanderbilt is a marvel of elegance and charm, as magnificent today as it was more than a century ago. Faithfully preserved and filled with original furnishings and masterpieces of art, no other residence in America offers a more authentic and inspiring view of Gilded Age life while suggesting that the Vanderbilts and their guests are still at home.

Just 20 minutes from the gate, enjoy the arts. Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre is a professional theatre company in residence at the historic Owen Theatre on the campus of Mars Hill University. Since its founding in 1975 by visionary director and theatre educator Jim Thomas, SART has produced scores of plays, musicals, and original works, many portraying the rich culture and heritage of Southern Appalachia. After operating for many years as a program of MHU, SART became an independent nonprofit organization in 2003 and is governed by a volunteer board of directors. In recognition of its artistic excellence and cultural importance to the community, SART has received major funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, North Carolina Arts Council, Madison County Arts Council, and the Shubert Foundation.

In 2009, the park built a new walkway and observation platform on the summit of Mount Mitchell. In 1916, the state of North Carolina began its official operations on Mount Mitchell. It was one year earlier that two state legislators from Yancey County introduced a bill in Raleigh designating the summit of Mount Mitchell as the first state park in North Carolina. At 6,684 feet, Mount Mitchell is the highest mountain in the Eastern U.S. And for the last century, it has been the flagship state park of North Carolina.

One of my favorites! And only 25 minutes from the gate. Lunch is amazing, so it dinner in “the red room”. Local tip: make a reservation for dinner and ask for a table in the red room. Eclectic decor and fabulous cocktails. Fried oysters one of my favs. This is a great spot to eat after any Asheville adventure, cause you will only be 25 minutes back to Wolf Laurel Resort. Casual and family friendly.

Take a step back in time at the Star Diner at the old Gulf filling station in Historic Marshall, NC. Last time I ate there a freight train passed by, like just out behind the building, very cool. Executive Chef Brian Sonoskus & Chef de Cuisine Will Hogancamp have been thrilling patrons since day one with their unique take on traditional dishes. Our small staff, cozy dining room, and eclectic atmosphere, all add to the dining experience. Take a meandering trip up the beautiful French Broad River (or a quick drive up I-26 - 15 minutes from Weaverville), and enjoy a dinner you won’t soon forget! Serving dinner Wednesday - Saturday starting at 5:30 And Brunch! Friday - Sunday, 11:30 - 1:30 Reservations highly recommended (but not required!) Call us at 828-649-9900
