Chapter S Annual Fall Leaf Ride 2017

Fall Ride 2017 to Western NC

 

We will be heading up to Little Switzerland NC and staying at the Big Lynn Lodge.


This is located right on the Blue Ridge Parkway on top of a mountain. Cost will be $139.75 a night, (both nights $279.50) for a room facing the Blue Ridge Parkway, or $154.28 a night (both nights $308.56) for a room with a porch facing the mountains (Sherry would punch me if I didn't get a room with the view). These prices, by the way, are the total price, including tax and tip. A sit down dinner and breakfast is also included in the price in the dining room, and the tips for all meals are also included in the listed price above. 

 

You can call now to reserve your room, but your card will not be charged a one night deposit until April 2017, when the owners will start processing credit cards and reservations for rooms next year. Yes, our folks can call and reserve a room of their choice at any time (right now if you are reading this to insure your have a room).

We will have until August 1st 2017 to make reservations for a room within the block of 15 rooms being held for us, and after that, the rooms will be released back to the hotel and sold to first come, first serve.

After reservations are made, you may cancel at any time 10 days out or longer, and there will be a $20 cancellation charge. If cancelled 9 days or less, one nights deposit will be forfeited.

This is an old school kind of place, very nice people that own it and work at it. It isn't the newest place we will ever stay, but it may have the best view of any place we will ever get!


Call Ms. Vickie Rae at 828-765-4257,  tell her you are with Southern Wings.  Call on Tuesday-Saturday 8:00-3:00.  Best around 11:00 a.m.


KSU Time and Location to be determined.
