Well... new development:

  • Pisgah Inn will not accept groups larger than 6 people and will not split a larger group
  • Only available time is 2:30pm, which I find funny because they don't take reservations past 7 days in advance. Does it mean a lot of people called this morning just before I did? Doubtful!
  • They now request a credit card to book a reservation, with a $25 fee for no-show...
At this stage I would tell them to go pound sand!!!

Anyone want to suggest an alternative? Thanks!

I concur they can pound sand. Let me look and see what I can find.

Interesting development.
Would they take reservations for 2 groups of 5-6?

I think so but 2:30 is a bit late. And it would be a $50 deposit. Maybe we can do Tapoco Lodge, not a big ride but good food. Remember this is leaf peeping season.

They probably have more business than they can handle because of social distancing. I suppose it will be hard to find a place that will take reservations for a group this large.

If we end up going to the Tapoco Lodge Lisa will be joining us; we will be driving (not riding) in that instance, in case anyone else needs a ride.

I have been given the kitchen pass from the Doc but I didn't get past two wheels! Me and the wifey will be at IH on Friday afternoon. Y'all have been warned!

Posts above indicate the Tapoco Lodge being an alternative. I'm not sure anything concrete was put down.

OK I just spoke to Tapoco Lodge and right now they don't have any other booked reservations until 6 pm on Thursday. She checked with her manager, since we are not staying at the Lodge even thought I have stayed there several times, and said they could not guarantee tables for us but we were welcome to come and see how it goes. So Jean and I plan to go there for lunch at 1100 on Thursday and whom ever wants to join us in this endeavor are more than welcome. The food is great there.

My guess is that we will still have 13 knocking on their door.

Since John checked on this, he and Jean definitely get the first seats. If there aren't enough for the rest of us, I guess we can draw straws to determine you gets to eat .

Also, Gilles and Kathy should get the next seats since Gilles looked into Pisgah for us.

I think there will be plenty of seating. I have been there many times in the fall and there were always lots of open tables.
