This land has been in the family since 1935 when Owen Foster, bought a 6000 acre plot of land for 25 cents an acre. ‘Plain’ Owen used the land mainly for farming and timber. His son William Owen Foster, better known as ‘Chicken Owen’, later used the shelter that is now the Rattlesnake Saloon as a hog pen. The 33 foot hole that now runs all the cables/power/electricity to the Saloon was drilled through the rock by him originally as way to feed the hogs without traveling around the then undrivable bluff.

 

After years of working the land, Owen Daniel Foster Sr had a new vision for the land and created the Seven Springs Lodge. ‘Danny’ wanted a place that catered to hunting, but has since opened the land to trail riding, atv and motorcycle events, chuckwagon races and even SHiFT Design Camp

 

Danny Foster and his youngest son, William Gordon Foster, soon realized that the logical companion to a Lodge is a Saloon. Their initial idea quickly grew from a watering hole with gravel base and a feed trough, to a lean-to shanty before finally settling on the current design. During construction some workers found a rattlesnake den a distance off from the shelter with a mother snake and twelve little ones which inspired our family to name it the Rattlesnake Saloon.

 

The Saloon took just 49 days to construct before opening on Labor Day weekend in 2009. Since opening it has been featured in magazines, music videos, and tv shows and has become one of the top attraction in the area. So far our guestbooks show visitors from all 50 states and over 30 other countries have stopped at the Saloon.

 

After being open for 5 years, Momma Faye stepped in to complete the family business. She was the missing piece and added the perfect touch of Southern Hospitality by going out of her way to make sure all visitors feel like family. Her Sidewinder’s Trading Post is where you will find souvenirs and apparel to remember all the great times at Seven Springs Lodge and Rattlesnake Saloon.

  • The Shoals Golf Course, Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

     

    The east championship course at The Shoals is named after General Wheeler. Fighting Joe was the first Trail course to break 8,000 yards, measuring 8,092 yards from the Black tees. It's long, really long, and this links style course is simply good straight-forward golf. Some say the spectacular 17th hole is the signature hole on the course, but the 18th green overlooking Wilson Lake on the Tennessee River will distract you with its beauty, if not its treachery. The second course, The Schoolmaster (named for President Woodrow Wilson who was responsible for getting Wilson Dam built on the Tennessee River and who was known as "The Schoolmaster of Politics"), may be tougher than Fighting Joe. This tree lined course is traditional golf with every hole keeping with the natural topography along the Tennessee River. It's wooded, rolling, and spectacular.
