Peg Shaw and guests at Misty Mountain Inn

July 12, 2010 - Misty Mountain Inn & Cottages in Blairsville, Georgia

Misty Mountain Inn & Cottages was recently honored as the Business of the Quarter by the Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce. Innkeeper Peg Shaw said, “When Mia called and told me that Misty Mountain was chosen as Business of the Quarter, I was taken by surprise. I didn’t even know we were in the running.”

Since 1997, Peg Shaw has served on several marketing and fundraising committees. She is tireless in her efforts to promote Blairsville and Union County as a tourist destination and a great place to live. In the past year, she has prepared press releases, created a current events calendar, served on the Southern Highroads Trail Marketing Committee, and on the Downtown Development Authority of Blairsville Promotions Committee.

When Misty Mountain Model Railroad opened to the public in 2000, Peg helped neighbor Charles Griffin spread the word about this amazing Union County attraction. She says, ‘It was the least I could do. Charles is a wonderful neighbor and the guys at the museum always help whenever there is a crisis at the inn.”

Peg Shaw is an active member of the Union County Historical Society, Friends of the Union County Library, and Community Council of Georgia Mountain Research & Education Center. She is an innovative thinker who gets the job done! Peg encourages others to work together and is a good friend to many in the Blairsville, Georgia community.
