“Get what you need as you travel on the Blue Ridge Parkway”

On the eastern slope of Grandfather Mountain rests a country store that has claimed the site at Blue Moon Gap since the early 1920s.

Generations of mountain people have bought groceries, hardware, and automobile products at the little store that was once known as Blue Moon Station and is now Grandfather Country Store. It has had several owners, name changes, and facelifts, but remains ever "The Country Store" to local people who were taken there as children and now walk the same floor boards to buy drinks and snacks with their grandchildren.

While there are still groceries and convenience items, browsers will also find fresh gourmet coffee, ice cream, pastries from the finest local bakeries, and a tempting line of local crafts, collectibles and antiques. Blending past and present, visitors can bask before a woodstove while cruising the net via wi-fi.

Bikers, hikers, cyclists, rock climbers, and nature lovers of all kind will find a place to rest, a variety of health foods and beverages, and a welcoming atmosphere that encourages relaxation, gossip and the exchange of ideas and experiences. Tourists will find a helpful staff that can address their travel needs.
