We've stay stayed here a few times and the owners, Mike and his wife, are very kind and hospitable. They even brought breakfast up to us in our room because my mother is elderly and uses a wheelchair. The views here are spectacular too!!

Skyline Village is unique. It is ideally located for those wanting the mountain views or the great driving roads. The owners are genuinely lovely people who do all they can to make your stay the best it can be. The store offers beer, wine, snacks and soft drinks, and this is especially handy because town is a few miles away....

Where to start? We planned a trip to the Little Switzerland area to put some more miles on our bikes and we had 4 couples in our group. We booked at the Skyline Inn based on some of the reviews and the location right at the parkway/diamondback roads. We were greeted with welcomes and smiles. The inn sits on Hwy...

Hi Gary & friends. Thank you so much for staying with us. I'm glad the tools and garage area helped you when you had a tire problem. That's what it's for! We think it's another reason that we redefine the concept of "motorcycle friendly" here at the Skyline. Really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next...

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....

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.
