When people start listing off the great destinations in our state, Pisgah is not usually on the top of the list.
But if you’re looking for a stunning panorama and a cozy place to retreat to, it should be.
My husband and I made our first trip to Pisgah when we stayed at Gorham’s Bluff for our tenth anniversary a couple of weeks ago. Part Bed and Breakfast, part cottage community, it is completely fabulous.
The views down into the valley are stunning:
And the Bed and Breakfast is delightfully eerie on a foggy day…
And the perfect southern mansion on a clear day.
Thanks to the excellent service of Executive Chef Keith Izydore, the meals provided are worth the trip by themselves.
We enjoyed the Full American Package, which is all three meals (which I highly recommend, since once you get to Gorham’s Bluff, you're at least 20 miles from any other eating establishment.)
Our lunch was a gourmet boxed lunch that we enjoyed in our cottage,
and we ate our dinner and breakfast in the Bed and Breakfast’s main Dining Room.
Although we would have stayed at the Bed and Breakfast had their been a room available, we ended up in a cottage, and we were so glad we did – having our own space really helped us relax and retreat.
All of the vistas are spectacular,
as is the architecture of the houses.
There are also plenty of nature trails, some even going down into the bluff where a waterfall can be found:
Pisgah is near Scottsboro, Alabama, and a little over two hours from Birmingham. If you’re looking for a gorgeous place to take a weekend trip, I highly recommend it!
