Frozen In Time

Came across this place on Frozen Creek Rd. This abandoned building looks like a Bed and Breakfast or Inn and is located right next to a waterfall.  Anybody know its story?

Here is an update based on what readers have sent in.

It belonged to Pat Lance an author, who ran the old store right before you get to Mitchell Bissell on Hwy 64.This was going to be her home,but she never got the chance to finish it before she passed away.

Give Me That Old Time Religion

Whitewater Baptist church sits off 281 South on the way to its namesake, Whitewater Falls, which is just inside the Transylvania County line.  The painting behind the preacher’s pulpit spoke to us as meaning “nature inspires faith”.  Oh yes.
