4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Property is off the beaten path, and very secluded. We stayed in cabin 4, and were very comfortable. Fireplace and hot tub was a nice addition. The breakfast was extremely good with the friendliest people you could want. Property has an outdoor pool as well. This is a nice getaway for relaxation and worth the visit.

I want to start our review about how much we enjoyed our stay, just as before and always, Jennifer was very accommodating for us and as usual, Kathy does an excellent Job trying her best to keep everything clean and then cooking a great Breakfast for the guest. We always like to stay here when we can and recommend it... More

The pictures online don't quite do this place justice. We loved the access to Pilot Mountain but were even more excited to find the 22 mile Sauratown Trail cutting right next to our cabin. If you like running trails you will LOVE this place. Breakfast was of the hook too!

We spent two nights at Pilot Knob Inn last week and loved being there. Beautiful surroundings, i.e., many acres of very attractive, well-kept wooded property not far from the entrance to Pilot Mountain State Park. The whole area around this park and Hanging Rock State Park is lovely. Agree pretty much with what everyone else has written. There is, by... More

Could not ask for a nicer place to stay. We have been staying there for 2 years and can't stay away. Breakfast is wonderful. If you need or want anything, you call Jennifer or Kathy. They really go above and beyond. Home away from home. The Castle is our favorite!!

I am trying to limit my list of accolades and am finding that task rather difficult. Do not choose cabin 4 if you are an early riser - you will not want to get out of that perfect bed! The lake is exquisite. Breakfast is delicious. Everyone from beginning to end are just wonderful, "real" people. I never figured out... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary here 2 weeks ago. What a pleasant surprise to only be 45 min from home and feel like you are a million miles away. The cost was affordable and the staff are so nice and welcoming. We stayed in the "Love Shack" and absolutely fell in love with this cabin. The décor was... More

Haven't stayed in a cabin in years, so we decided to try Pilot Knob cabin #4. When we arrived there was not a soul to be found. Check in consisted of taking the instructions off the bulletin board at the office and proceeding to the unlocked cabin that had our key inside. The inside of the cabin is very clean... More

Wow! We have stayed at other "cabins" but nothing quite like this one. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite (39 years of honeymooning) and by far this made us feel like we were the only ones on the premises. The attention to detail was fabulous. The breakfast was delicious and the view from the breakfast area is breathtaking. Jennifer, the... More

Our son's wedding at Pilot Knob Inn was the perfect romantic weekend! From the moment I made the reservation until the big day, Jennifer, the Inn Keeper, was so helpful with all the details in our planning process. We rented the Honeymoon Cabin for the ceremony and it was perfect; the intimacy of this authentic cabin along with the beautiful... More
