The view from the mansion porch is lovely. The craft shop offers beautiful objects for sale at a high price. This is a great spot to get out, stretch and enjoy the atmosphere

Seeing this glorious mountain mansion, exploring the grounds, and visiting the Appalachian Arts Center are a must do for those traversing the Blue Ridge Parkway. This history of Flattop Manor and its creation are a view into the history Appalachia. Don't miss it.

Great hiking or even horseback riding trails. Or just sit in the rockers at the manor and enjoy the view wishing you had a glass of sweet tea.

The quickest is the Deer Park trail. If you take the Maze toward the Apple Barn and then turn left onto Watkin Road you can also get there, but it is much further.
