PREFACE

The Rattlesnake lodge site is northeast of Asheville, about 8 miles from Oteen on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The map on the inside cover gives complete directions for getting to the remains. 

Many people who have frequented the area have inquired about the history of the lodge, which my grandfather built in early 1900.  In order to clarify several misconceptions, I felt it important to pass on what I know, and to publish some of the pictures I have acquired  from my father, Arthur Chase Ambler, Sr., and from his sister, Barbara Ambler Thorne.

I encourage anyone with any knowledge or pictures about this area to  contact
me, in case there is a future edition.

Many thanks go to Barbara for all her help in gathering the pictures and the information.
