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!

Thanks Mark for the feedback on the Motorcycle rentals as well as the room rentals. We really enjoyed meeting your friends and hope everyone comes back for another adventure ride in the future. I purchased 2 more BMW's to add to the rental fleet so we will be ready! Thanks again.

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. We were in the area to go gem mining at Emerald Village in Little Switzerland and I wanted to stay close by. This small inn is rustic as mentioned in the description; however, it was one of the cleanest places at...

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....

The Skyline Village inn is a classic slice of Americana preserved and updated for today. the rooms overlook a beautiful valley, and you're just seconds off the Blue Ridge Parkway. our GPS had us turn the wrong direction for the Skyline but know that it's just West of the Parkway not East. The rooms are older in decor, but clean....

Took friends there from Sweden that wanted to ride and stay cool in the NC heat weve had. Worked perfectly, and was very reasonable...

We stopped here overnight while we were riding the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was great. The beds were comfy, rooms were clean and the balcony with the view was amazing! The owner and his dog Barney are very friendly and really cater to their guests. We will definitely be back. They also have covered motorcycle parking in the back.

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.
