Wow, this was such an amazing place! We chose the Pilot Knob Suite for a Friday and Saturday night stay in mid September. The place is right next to Pilot Mountain State Park which is another amazing place. The suite was perfect....very clean, bed very comfortable. This room had a lot of space and I highly recommend! The hot tub...

My husband and I have been coming to our "little cabin in the woods" for several years now, usually in the fall months. It's hard to describe the ambience of such a place; rustic, serene, laidback...tucked away among the hardwoods at the base of the Pinnacle where you can immerse yourself in the forest and wildlife. It's run by some...

From the room to the outside surroundings everything is great! There is a view of Pilot Mt from the breakfast room and a nice pond on site for fishing or relaxing. My Airy is only a short drive away for tourist appeal!

We stayed in Cabin 4 for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary. It's the first cabin you see upon arrival and it is very remote and private, which we loved. It was a little walk to breakfast, but we didn't mind at all. The cabin is very cozy and rustic, which is what we wanted. It was clean, for the...

This is a hidden jewel. Jennifer and her crew do a great job and we were very happy with our cabin. We were visiting to Mayberry Days and it's only a short 15 minute tide to Mt Airy. Very close to several wineries which are great.

This was our first trip to the area and we were pleasantly surprised at we found. The cabin we stayed in was beautifully decorated, extremely clean, and comfortable. This is a wonderful couple's retreat. Breakfast is fresh cooked by a wonderful woman. The rooms have WiFi, and satellite if you don't want to completely unplug. There is a lake on...

This was our fourth trip to Pilot Knob Inn. This place is so peaceful and relaxing. We stayed in cabin #4 this time and definitely the best of the log cabins. We've stayed in # 1, #2 and #5, but Cabin #4 is the only cabin with a king bed. Owners Will & Jen are so accommodating and Kathy, who...

Came here for a long weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of DC. Location is great - it's about 20 minutes to downtown Mount Airy, maybe 10 to central Pilot Mountain, and walking distance to the hiking trails on Pilot Mountain. We stayed in the Southwest suite, which had a bedroom, large bathroom with a spa tub and large...

This was our second visit. Didn't go as well as the first but was still good. We took a deluxe room with a sauna, the Castle Room. The room was huge and so was the bathroom. Very quiet inside... but on the deck, the sound of nearby traffic was somewhat annoying. It had a a very nice deck overlooking the...

We stopped by at the end our our trip as a nice getaway. The castle mountain room was unbelievable! For some one that works at a high end resort this place was top notch. The room was clean and prestigious. We were able to grill out, enjoy the hot tub and sauna, as well as get a DVD and curl...
