In the early 1900's a fellow by the name of Dr. Chase P. Ambler built a stone summer home for his family near Asheville. He sold it in the 1920's and unfortunately the lodge burned down a few years later. You can read the details here.
Some of the remains still exists. Reaching them can be a short uphill hike from the location below, or you can do a longer hike (16 miles round trip) by starting at the Craggy Garden parking area and taking the Mountains to Sea Trail east. This is a beautiful hike with great views.
Distance from downtown Greenville: 87 miles.
