The train depot dates back to 1909, when Paint Bank was the final stop of the Potts Valley Branch line of the Norfolk & Western Railway.  This expansion was part of the mining boom of the early 1900’s.  The depot and our other historic buildings have been renovated and converted into charming lodging, while maintaining much of the original architecture.  The main section of the depot lodge features soothing sounds of flowing water from nearby Potts Creek. Looking for a nice place to stay, a unique dining experience where you can eat and shop or wanting to join in many other attractions including hunting or fishing at Potts Creek Outfitters.
