"Let your mind wander as you drive the miles of dirt road to get to the store. The local scenery resets your perspective to a simpler place and time."
BETSEY'S OLE COUNTRY STORE was established In 1924, when Mortimer was a booming logging town.
Built at the corner of what are now N.C. 90 and Brown Mountain Beach Road, it serves as a general store and post office. Perched deep in the woods of the Wilson Creek area, the small Campground and store has seen its share of history over the years welcoming guests since the 40's.
Let your mind wander as you drive the miles of dirt road to get to the store the local scenery resets your perspective to a simpler place and time as you meander through the mountains. When you arrive, it’s just as welcoming and friendly as you wanted it to be, a store that you feel a part of and somehow a community, though you’ve only arrived. The store appears in grainy, black-and-white photographs of the town in years past, and today it looks much the same apart from the added camping and trout pond.
