More businesses have opened in the area to serve the growing tourism draw of the popular ATV trail systems.
The Busted ATV Resort, in Bramwell, opened in April by owners Robert Hedges and Pat Brabbs, both of Daytona Beach, Fla.
“We used to race four-wheelers and we’ve been coming to the trails for 14 years,” Hedges said, adding that their trips here gave them the idea to open the resort.
“We started (on the project) three years ago,” he added.
Hedges said they own “a mountain,” Mt. Me, and plan to expand their business by offering mountaintop camping, among other things.
They also plan to move here.
“Once we get up and running we’ll move here,” he said. “That’s our goal.”
Hedges said the resort will keep growing, and expanding services. “There’s plenty more to come,” he added.
The resort is located on Rt. 52 in Bramwell and is a half-mile from the Hatfield and McCoy Trails and five miles from the Spearhead Trails in Virginia.
The fully remodeled historic 1880 Bramwell House and adjacent quarters are at the base of Mt. Me and offers accommodations.
Expansion of accommodations is continuing, he said, and the mountaintop camping experience will open next year.
