Could not have been better! A quaint old in with tons of personality. The hosts were fabulous and very kind. Spent a great deal of time exploring the history of the place and it was fun. The rooms are all done with a personal touch of the original builder and the location on the mountain was perfect. Very pet friendly....

This hotel caters to motorcyclists and outdoor adventurists. Mike and his wife Lynn own and run the place and are very helpful. Mike spent over 2 hours assisting me with a motorcycle maintenance issue - and he bakes a mean pie!!

I visited Skyline for the first time this past July and was pleasantly surprised! I can't believe how awesome this place is. It's right off the Parkway, with million dollar views, wonderful owners who make breakfast and dinner with wonderful conversation, and the rooms are cozy, clean and quaint. It is the PERFECT mountain retreat. I wrote a review because...

Having recently returned from a stay at another old restored place I had low expectations for this inn. I was so wrong! This place was lovely... made even nicer by the kindness of the owners.

We stayed two nights at the Skyline Village and wished we'd had time to stay longer. It is a unique, quaint property overlooking the mountains from the front deck. I believe the owner Mike said it was built back in the 40's and he's been remodeling and updating for a few years. There are three floors, a bar and restaurant,...

I don't need to describe the Inn because the reviews are spot on. Mike and his wife Lynn make you feel like family right from the start. The sheets on our bed smelled line dried.

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. Our gift shop has some unique rocks, gems and minerals, jewelry and Diamondback NC226A souvenirs and T-shirts. We pride ourselves on customer focus and hospitality.
