Salola Inn 



SITUATED on Sugar Loaf Mountain, sixteen miles 
east of Hendersonville, at an elevation of about 
4,000 feet, has been thoroughly redecorated and 
refurnished throughout, and is now prepared to give 
efficient service and comfort to those contemplating a 
sojourn in this delightful section of "The Land of the 
Sky." 

A splendid automobile road from Hendersonville to 
the hotel has been completed and is a most interesting 
drive, affording many beautiful views along the way. 

A sanitary dairy provides the best of milk, butter, 
etc, while vegetables are gathered from the Inn's own 
gardens. 

Tennis Courts, Croquet and all outdoor amusements 
are provided, while a Golf Course will be constructed in 
the near future. 

A high-class Bus Line is operated daily, between the 
Inn and Hendersonville, thus affording reasonable trans- 
portation, and constant mail service. 

The Inn is electrically lighted, and supplied with 
running water. 

Open from June 1st to October 31st.

OCEAN VIEW. This view is obtained from the 
front of the Inn, and there are few outlooks so 
extensive. It must be seen to be appreciated. 
Many mornings you can see the clouds below cover- 
ing the valley and distance so you can well imagine you 
are looking over the ocean.

UPON THE SUMMIT PLATEAU, one-half mile 
from the observation tower, is Salola Inn. The 
automobile highway winds through the grounds 
and affords easy access at all times. 




BEING 2000 FEET ABOVE THE SURROUND- 
ING VALLEYS AND MOUNTAIN FOR- 
ESTS, the view from Salola Inn extends to the 
horizon. This unexcelled panorama of land and sky 
is ever changing in colorful hues from sunrise to sun- 
set. The camera cannot record these expansive views 
as the eyes can see them. 




SPACIOUS PORCHES, SHADY LAWNS, AND 
EXCELLENT ATHLETIC COURTS offer 
guests of Salola Inn a congenial environment 
for rest and recreation. 




MR. AND MRS. JOHN AUGUSTUS HOOKS 
cordially receive their many friends who visit 
Sugar Loaf Mountain and its many famous 
points of national tourist attraction. Afternoon re- 
ceptions at Salola Inn bring together friends and 
guests from all parts of the South and North. 




AMID THE PRE-EMINENCE OF ENORMOUS 
ROCK FORMATIONS LIE THE MOST 
FERTILE OF GARDENS producing vege- 
tables and fruits of superior quality to the products 
of the lowlands. Salola Inn is truly a country home 
of the highest type. Its cuisine is characteristic of its 
home-grown products. 




COMFORT-RATHER THAN LUXURY. RE- 
FINEMENT-MORE THAN ELEGANCE-is 
the appeal of Salola Inn to those who seek a 
resort distinctive for the summer vacation. 

Nature has provided this life-giving atmosphere. 
Rest, sleep and relaxation come naturally to the tired 
mind and body after each day spent on Sugar Loaf 
Mountain. 




s 



ERVICE is the keynote of satisfied guests at Sa~ 
lola Inn. No expense is spared to make this the 
summer resort premier in every respect.

BSERVATION TOWER-commanding a view 
of from 20 to 40 miles in every direction. 




SQUIRREL ROCK. A fine piece of Mountain 
Granite among so many Massiv r e Rocks, tor which 
this whole mountain is noted. Each point is of 
interest and within easy walking distance of the Inn.

SUMMIT OF SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN 
FROM CASTLE ROCK. A climb to this point 
will be well worth the effort. From here you may 
overlook the vast expanse of valley and mountain ranges, 
piled one behind another, till the distant ones are lost to 
view, being beyond the range of human vision. 

A 35-foot tower is to be erected on its highest point, 
and will command a magnificent view of the country in 
every direction.

CLOVEN CLIFF. To sit on this ledge, on a warm 
afternoon, with a book "or its equivalent" and 
drink in the life-giving breeze, which constantly 
brings new life and health, is the acme of good luck.

VIEW FROM SUNSET ROCK. A wonderful 
place from which to watch the sun set; the whole 
western sky often being a galaxy of gorgeous 
coloring, seldom seen in any other locality.

SHIP ROCK. Another sample of nature's freaks, 
and interesting as all things in these mountains are 
when untouched by the hand of man. 
After a trip through this wild and rugged scenery 
and gazing at these massive cliffs, one is impressed by 
the stupendous forces embodied in these rocks, and the 
smallness of each human atom, so well expressed in the 
following lines: 

'"Infidel, who in thy finite wisdom 

Woulds't grasp things infinite and dost become 

A scoffer of God's holiest mysteries, 
Tremble, Tremble and Rejoice; 

Tremble, for He who formed this mighty mass 
Could in his judgment, crush thee where thou art 

Rejoice! that still His mercy spares thee."
