Wordless Wednesday


Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

The Bluffs Lodge and Coffee Shop opened in 1947 when Doughton Park was still call the Bluffs Park.  They were an institution along the Blue Ridge Park way until being closed in 2011.  These are the last unused photos in from my June 2021 vacation file.

For Three Million bucks this beautiful land  could be yours
The Lodge has a serious case of mold, more than likely it will have to be torn down.

Note from the nephews regarding the adorable ladybug rocks on yesterday's post.
Their peeps collected the rocks during their trip to Colorado this past spring.
When they got home, they artistically turned them into ladybugs
If you missed seeing them, here is the photo again.


  1. The rocks are cute and beautifully painted. We've been rather absent from blogs these past few days so thanks for the repeat!

  2. da phenny won 26 bucks in da lottery last monday... can we make a down payment for that place?

    That land is beautiful but agreed, a lot of work! Ta for the fill-in on the ladybird rocks. YAM xx

  4. That's a shame about the mold. yup, would have to win the lottery to buy a place like that.

  5. the ladybug rocks but we'll pass on buying the moldy Lodge and Coffee Shop. My Mom and Dad's favorite Lodge eating spot on the Blue Ridge Parkway here in Virginia is open but crowded!

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. The land is just beautiful and so are the ladybug rocks!

  7. We don't think we'd like that Lodge but we love the ladybugs!

    The Florida Furkids

  8. I LOVE those rocks. I would love to have one. I swear, one day....I will have to try my hand at painting rocks.

  9. thanks for the explaniton on he lady bugs. they are adorable. 3 million is just a tad over my budget. LOL

  10. It's too bad that such a great place was left to deteriorate. We agree with MadSnapper that the price tag for that place is just a bit too high for our budget.

  11. That is some place for the money, too bad about the mold though.

  12. Mold is not a good thing. What a beautiful place though.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

  14. Love the ladybugs!
    Beautiful land! I could see a lovely horse barn on the property!
