A really nice, quiet place right off the parkway makes it super convenient if you're just looking for a place to sleep for the night as you drive the Blue Ridge Parkway. The room was very clean and attractive, and felt comfortable and homey. But, it is lacking things most travelers have come to expect: I.e., no hair dryer, no... More

A great place for peace and quiet, just steps away from the BRPkwy. You park in front of your room , the rooms are small but very clean and pretty inside. Not a lot of frills but there is a nice TV and you can go to the deck of the Lee House if you need internet service. We didnt... More

We had a group of 8 that stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. We really enjoyed our stay. It was a good location for taking motorcycle rides to other parts of the mountains. There were plumbing problems in the kitchen area but Faye let us in so we could watch the race on the big screen and do it as... More

I was going to be in the area and a quick search online found the "New River Inn". Called and spoke with Faye(one of the sweetest people I have ever met), she had a cottage (the Drew) available. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchenette/living room and an awesome porch for a very fair price. I arrived and met Ted, a... More

Traveling the Parkway is a favorite thing for us to do. Staying at small, privately own motels is another. We found the New River Inn by accident, and were sure glad we did. We like to park outside of our room. We like out of the way places, We like coffee in the room. All of this and great friendly... More

On a recent trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stayed at the New River Inn and Cottages. Sunday, Oct. 12, was a very foggy and rainy day, so our daily excursions were limited. We started out on the Parkway, driving south through the fog, and actually arrived at the New River Inn around 2:15 PM. Check-in was at 3,... More

Owners very friendly, honest and rooms extremely clean. Convenient to Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to find. Perfect off-the-parkway place. Good value. Would definitely stay there again. Very relaxing. Good views.

This is a great little place, privately owned and right off the Blue Ridge Parkway near the former Northwest Trading Post (now Sallie Mae's gift store). It is a 60s era motel whose rooms have been recently renovated with fresh paint and new carpet. There were a few rooms with king beds and others with two doubles. The beds were... More

We have stayed at this Inn several times, most recently October 25th through 27th. Even though the Inn was completely booked, we still enjoyed peace and quiet, a nice clean room, and exceptional service from the staff. Our dog recognized this home away from home and was happy and comfortable too. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thanks... More
