Situated on top of a hill, the luxurious 20-room Flat Top Manor looked down across five acres of apple orchards leading to Bass Lake. Bass Lake is easily accessed on Route 221 south(a.k.a. Yonahlossee Road) just outside of Blowing Rock. Lined with rhododendron and mountain laurel, the lake offers a 1.7 mile loop, perfect for an evening stroll or jog -- or a great place to fish.
Anyone interested in fishing Bass Lake should consult with local guides and resources before heading out to fish.
