Been there for 2012 fall foliage trip in mid Oct. The restaurant was so crowed and it took so long and we were starving, so we decided to use breakfast area upstair to cook our own meal. The staff was very nice and brought free waffle for us later on. The room was decent, clean and warm, with front balcony... More

I came across the Skyline Inn several years ago on a motorcycle ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The property is located at the intersection of the BRP, 226, and 226A. It's a great place to stay in the mountains in that you are centered amoung Linville Falls and Mt. Mitchell with Boone about an hour in one direction and... More

A very charming inn just off the BRP. The owners do seem to treat this place more like a b&b than a hotel, and you can see their hard work. The rooms have hardwood floors, fridges, and wood paneling, and the shared balcony rooms have screen doors and communal chairs to enjoy the superb view. That said, there's also a... More

We just loved this place! I was a little nervous that our room was on the 3rd floor and no elevator. However, you just head up the driveway in the back, and there you park your car to enter the 3rd floor. Mike is a great Inn Keeper! We enjoyed some of his craft beers. It was so nice of... More

I loved this place. Our host Mike and his "Blue" were so gracious. We had reservations for three rooms/three nights. On our arrival they made sure we were checked in and fed.

You won't have a better time at a better place! An older venue with the rustic charm and value you expect from a different era.

We wished we were staying more than one night in this neat historic inn just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Even though the building is old, the balcony rooms have been tastefully remodeled. The view is awesome and, even though the room had air conditioning, we just left our balcony door open all night to take advantage of the nice... More

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 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.
