As we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the hostess, who showed us our room... too bad it was the wrong one and people were already sleeping inside. We were switched into another room, a nice one with a quite beautiful view. Since we had to make some other reservation for the next days and there was no service, we... More

My wife and I booked a room here as part of our moving trip along the Blue Ridge Highway. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by Sherry, the innkeeper, who immediately treated us like we were old friends. We had an upstairs room which was kept very clean and tidy. Each room has a screen door so that... More

Had a very nice room on the upper level with deck & rockers right outside. Enjoyed relaxing on the deck watching the sun go down. No cell phone or Wi-Fi service available but we expected that. Great breakfast in the morning, wonderful stay!

Arrived to Inn to be told they were closed for painting the computer was not working so no reservations requests had been received. Okay fine, but I called before driving there and left a message and my cell number, checking about rooms earlier in the day. I got no call back and when we spoke with lady she had no... More

We had such a wonderful weekend here at the Inn. We were celebrating our 11 year anniversary, and what a beautiful, and special place to celebrate! I can't say enough great things about this welcoming inn. Don and Sherry are wonderful hosts, and they made us feel so welcome, and did so in every little detail. The inn was beautifully... More

What an amazing place. Has to be experienced to appreciate! Very handy for the parkway and we did eventually find it in the mist! Had a lovely room up off the balcony with all we required. The room was very interesting, like the rest of the place just full of artefacts. In the morning we were made the best breakfast.... More

We were unhappy at another small motel in Galax , VA, that we paid for sight unseen and left even after paying for the room just because I felt so uncomfortable there. At our wits end, at the last minute I called Don at Orchard Gap, and thank God from above, we were told to come right on, we were... More

I stayed here one night on my solo bike ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I had assumed I would have to stay at the hotel in Fancy Gap that night, so finding the Inn about 5 miles east of town was a pleasant surprise. I stayed in an upstairs room and was able to watch the sunset with a... More

Driving north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we arrived at Orchard Gap late, so we passed the Inn without stopping and went directly to the Olde Mill Golf Club, where we had dined a year earlier, for dinner. Unfortunately it was closed, having no power because of the recent severe storms. So we retraced our route to the Inn and... More

The inn at Orchard Gap is on lightning ridge road just 200 yards off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It on a hill and has a great view. Our stay was great. We had an upstairs room and the large porch was wonderful to sit and read. The room was clean and cozy and breakfast was good. We spent one night,... More
