This land has been in the family since 1916 when Owen Foster, bought the first track of 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 a 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 a 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 its opening, it has been featured in magazines, music videos, and tv shows and has become one of the top attractions 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.
