To all of our visitors and friends…
It is hard to believe that 2 months ago, the leadership team at Pisgah Inn met to plan a survival garden and set up a chicken coop. We were preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
Now, we are open and looking for more staff. How quickly things change.
We are open with some changes from previous seasons. The gift shop and the country store are open as usual. All CDC requirements are in place. You can feel comfortable here.
The lodge rooms are available with only 2 changes, one being limited housekeeping services. If you are staying more than one night, you will not get daily housekeeping service unless you request it. Let us know if you need extra towels, coffee, or any other amenity. The rooms are disinfected thoroughly after every checkout. The other change is that we now deliver a complimentary continental breakfast to your room daily. (Our main dining room is NOT open for breakfast).
The food service is different. We have 50% indoor dining capacity now. The main Dining Room is open for Lunch and Dinner, by advance reservation only. There are scheduled seatings for meal service. This could be seen as an improvement as the huge crowds and long waiting times are a thing of the past.
Our Grazing Deer Café (Grab and Go food and beverages) is now open from 7:30 am -9:30 pm daily. This is also an improvement.
We welcome all input and feedback. Tell us how we can do things better.
We are excited to be open again and look forward to seeing you this season.
