We were traveling the blue ridge parkway on our way to TN on a motorcycle trip. Ended up spending the night here and boy were we happy we did. The owners are some of the nicest people I've ever met. They have covered bike parking and offered use of tools and garage if we needed anything. The views are spectacular....

After roughly 10 hours on a motorcycle, this overnight stop was perfectly located. We had electrical problems on one of our motorcycles and called ahead to let the staff know we would be a late check-in. The owner, Mike, called us back and said he had a trailer and tools and would be glad to come out and help since...

This place has been here since at least the fifties and the current owners have done such a great job with it. The rooms are small, but comfortable. Third floor has a balcony overlooking the valley below. Beautiful any time of year and awesome for full moons and/or fall foliage. Reserve ahead of time to be sure there is a...

I would give this place 5 stars but I do not like nor care for the dog and cat that runs around inside and outside the eating area. Now for all the good; Mike and his staff are super nice people and Mike really knows how to cook a mean Ribeye and BBQ ribs. They take really good care of...

Thanks Brett. We appreciate your feedback. I try to keep the cat out but it doesn't always work out. Blue is a service dog and must be nearby while I'm working. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you guys next year!

Had the most wonderful dinner with a spectacular view!! Ribs were meaty and delicious. The best crab cakes with minimal filler. Key lime pie was not the traditional recipe but one of the best we've had - we are Floridians if that describes how good it was!!

Thank you for the feedback! We enjoyed having you here and are glad to get the feedback on the food. Come back and we will fix you another delicious dinner!

The Inn is rustic and the rooms unique. I really liked the fact that we had a room with access to the balcony but would prefer if the window in the door was covered with a curtain or frosted, anyone could walk-up and see us in the room. The staff and owner were very friendly and tried to make our...

The Skyline Village Inn was the last stop on a 6-week summer odyssey taken with my two young grandsons.

This is an old fashioned mom and pop motel. The owners are so friendly and along with a gentleman named David run the entire motel. When we arrived we were told that they served dinner on the patio at reasonable price. As we sat on patio Mike the owner comes up and fires up the gas grill to cook dinner....
