After a last minute decision to take a trip to North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains... we searched for a unique location to make the adventure special. Finding, booking and staying at Skyline Village Inn was exactly what we'd envisioned and more. Incredible, warm hospitality by the couple who own and operate the Inn. They're very welcoming of dogs......

Much better than expected for the price. Old but clean. View for the inn is fantastic!. We will stay there again. We paid around a $78. They are right in the heart of Little Switzerland with beautiful view of the mountains. We also had dinner at the inn which was one the best steaks I have ever eaten! They offer...

Was there in July and took entire family this time. Took grandkids gem mining and spent night at Skyview. You could not ask for a warmer more considerate staff.

Clean room, comfortable bed. This place has great views, several areas to sit and enjoy, pool table, wifi, cable TV. Owner and his wife cook breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, although menu was limited the food was great at good price. Loved the friendliness.

This hotel makes a great stop when traveling on the blue ridge parkway. It is conveniently located very close to the parkway. The rooms are a bit rustic, but clean. The views from the hotel are simply amazing. We did not eat here, but the food smelled wonderful. If you want a unique experience this is the place for you.

We stayed for a week with 4 other couples all in our 60s and 70s. We rode our Motorcycles in the mountains for 4 glorious days.

Please do yourself a favor and read the reviews (and nasty responses from the owner) before you book. I have never EVER been so poorly treated by a hotel representative. Here's what happened: We booked the hotel way in advance, based on the good reviews we saw on TripAdvisor. I should have read the bad ones along with Mike (the...

According to Linda Holzman I guess I am responsible for more problems than George Bush. But Ms Holzman made the reservation through Booking.com and she picked the least expensive rate and smallest room. All of that was pre-determined by her and an automated booking process which worked well. She was dissatisfied that we could not upgrade her to a larger...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at Milepost 331 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, halfway between Asheville and Blowing Rock/ Boone. Just 25 miles north of Mt. Mitchell and 25 miles south of Grandfather Mountain. We are motorcycle friendly and, in fact we rent Dual Sport Motorcycles. We are also Pet friendly. We are perched high on top of the Blue Ridge adjacent to the Parkway and only 200 feet from the Parkway ramp at the NC226 exit. We have 16 affordable rooms with a balcony that runs the length of the building overlooking the Catawba Valley and surrounding mountains. We have covered motorcycle parking as well as ground floor access to all 3 floors. The building has been renovated with new plumbing, electrical and refinished red oak floors. There is some very unique wood paneling made from 22 varieties of native wood. We serve guests only in the restaurant with an excellent beer and wine selection for on and off premises.
