Carolina Shangri-La


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Snowbird Mountain Lodge, located near Robbinsville in Graham County, was built in 1941 and sits on a ridge at nearly 3,000 feet. Naturalists, birdwatchers, honeymooners, and hikers all frequent the lodge which offers the comforts of home in beautiful surroundings. Alabamian Robert Rankin fell under its spell thirty years ago, and in 1995 he and his wife became the owners. Now divorced, Rankin operates the lodge with the help of his daughters in the summer and on school vacations.
