We visited the Blue Ridge Parkway area and found this Lodge online and called before arriving that dayand FORTUNATELY got a room on a weekday in October 2015. The Fall colors were at their peak. Many places were booked and we needed a PET FRIENDLY motel/hotel. The rate for 2, WITH DOG fee, was priced at approx $130. We did... More

We spent one night here during a road trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The room rate includes dinner and breakfast. History of the lodge is interesting. The rooms are clean, and the food is very good.

For those wanting to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway, this is a perfect location. Easy access, beautiful views, and includes family style breakfast and dinner. We stayed in one of the condos. A step back in time, it was clean and neat. Wished there was a television in the bedroom. However, the wifi was excellent which is unusual in the... More

I have been struggling with whether or not I wanted to write a review of this lodge. We booked their last room (and most expensive) on a holiday weekend in early September. The room was musty, the carpets worn and dirty. Windows either were painted shut or did not have screens. The outside deck was unusable as one of the... More

It being the middle of "leaf peeper" season, hotels in the mountains of NC are hard to find. We were traveling up the Blue Ridge Parkway, heading north. This place had a vacancy, so we booked it over the phone. Upon arrival, we found this delightful throwback to an earlier time. Its down home flavor is refreshing. They have rooms,... More

We have stayed at Big Lynn Lodge for years. We once again enjoyed our stay and enjoy the friendships we have made over the years. The owners are always very helpful. There are some changes that need to be made however. There needs to be an updated water/sewer system so the hot water won't continue to go off. Also, the... More

Stayed for one night at the beginning of a road trip. Something about the place makes guests one big family. It could be the meal seating arrangements (great food!), could be the amazing North Carolina view, could be the down-to-earth friendliness of the staff. Doesn't matter - I will stay there again, and again. The only downside was lack of... More

Third time staying at Big Lynn Lodge. They had upgraded the rooms (TV) and redone bathrooms since last visit several years ago. Unfortunately there was a heavy fog so our room with a "view" wasn't. The food was much improved with heartier portions. Service was excellent. You can't beat the price! (meals are included) Front desk staff welcoming.

Stayed here one night on a motorcycle tour of the blue ridge mountains. Food was pretty good, breakfast was better as there was a selection. Dinner is get what they bring if you wanna eat there. Had billards, few other games in Game Center, corn hole and few other activities outdoors.
