In Loving Memory – Pete Nagle, 1947 – 2017

It is with extremely sad hearts that we tell you of the sudden acute illness and unexpected passing of Pete on February 9th, 2017. His huge and generous presence has left a very large hole in our family’s daily life and in our community. It is still very surreal yet it has happened. His spirit is still among us and we, his family, and our Mountain Magnolia family will strive to continue his tradition of providing the best possible service to our lodging and dining guests going forward…..this is what he would want.

The Mountain Magnolia Inn is open for nightly lodging, elopement, and smaller events as we move into the Fall and Winter seasons. We are also booking weddings for 2021 and beyond.
