Cliff Dwellers Gifts

Named after the old inn that was situated on the mountainside before the elevator opened, Cliff Dwellers Gifts is a convenient spot to shop for handcrafted art pieces and mementos of your visit. The gift shop is located next to the tunnel entrance at the top parking lot. A few of our local artisans are featured below. Also, check out some more local farms & businesses we support.

Made in the USA & Local Handcrafted Artwork

Melanie’s Meadow Jewelry, Burnsville, NC

Handcrafted jewelry made from reclaimed wood that has found a second use. Your unique piece may have come from the ceiling beam of a mountain cabin, a timber from a time-worn barn or the heart of a tree that has weathered its last storm.


Sabbath Day Woods, Canton, NC

Fine handcrafted furniture, clocks, serving ware and cutting boards. Each heirloom-quality piece is hand crafted using the finest Certified Sustainable Appalachian hardwoods and hand-rubbed finish. The perfect gift or centerpiece for your home.


Black Mountain Studios Pottery, Black Mountain, NC

Each distinct pottery piece incorporates the look of the mountains, a synthesis of the rustic and the refined, with form and function playing an intriguing duet.


Come sit a while in one of our comfy rockers and enjoy the vista of Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure from our front porch!
