Where childhood returns in a magic moment with a Total Solar Eclipse

The Gray Wolf Mountain Inn is located off Reese Road in Brasstown, North Carolina, at the site of my Grandfather’s cattle farm. Through the 60’s and early 70’s, this was my childhood playground and my Grandfather’s pride.

When my father and Aunt sold the land in the early 80’s, none of us could have imagined what a change would occur for this hidden gem of an area. New roads have connected this pristine mountain community with the urban landscape of Atlanta. The homes that have been built where I baled hay is astounding.

The Gray Wolf is sitting on the Path of Totality with the partial eclipse beginning at 1:05:34 pm and totality begins at 2:34:30 pm on August 21, 2017, lasting 2 minute 26 seconds. The moon completes its transit across the sun at 4:00:19 pm.

The Gray Wolf is “a nice place to come home to” with a big open deck, a fire pit and a phenomenal location for a little star gazing.

Re-opened under new management, Lisa, operates the Gray Wolf. Lisa has a degree in Hospitality and Wedding & Event Planning. Gray Wolf is also located just one mile from the John C Campbell Folk School. If you’re taking classes there, Gray Wolf is a nice alternative for your lodging.
