Jake Barrow

Celebrating 36 Years

“Mom and dad were driving home from a ski weekend at Beech Mountain, when they had this crazy idea to start Edge of the World.

“The next day they both resigned their teaching jobs, withdrew their retirement, sold the house, and a car, and never looked back!” states Barrow.

Edge of World North is now managed by their son, Jake.

Jake along with his amazing family and exceptional staff happily create fun family and group adventures from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Monday through Saturday.

EOW takes trips on Saturdays through mid-September.

Jake and his team have earned TripAdvisor’s top national awards for excellence.

“We are so blessed,” says Jake, “Thank you!”
