Stayed at the Volunteer gap inn in October 2009 while touring the blue ridge parkway and chasing the fall colors. This is a great place to stay, and i loved the simplicity, peace and quiet. The innkeepers - Deena and co - are great people. They were very polite and understanding even before we got here, especially during the reservation... More

You can travel the word over and you'll never find a place as warm, comforting and friendly as the cabins at Volunteer Gap Inn. Our recent drive from Long Island, NY left us exhausted and irritable when we finally arrived at Volunteer Gap Inn. The atmosphere at the Inn turned our attitudes around immediately. The innkeepers welcomed us like distant... More

The property is beautiful and the rooms are great. I loved the whirlpool tub and the views. Deena and her Husband were great. They recently purchased the property and have is... More

The volunteer gap inn, fancy gap virginia is an excellent place to stay. Extremely neat and clean. If you want the quiet, back to nature type of place, this is what you are looking for. The innkeepers are wonderful people as well. We stayed there a year ago and just made a return visit in January. We enjoy being alone... More

We stayed in a very well appointed king size bed room....it even had a whirlpool tub...which added to our relaxation factor. The... More

I also have stayed in everything from high rise hotels on Fifth avanue NYC to Motel 7 in SE downtown San Jose, so I know a little about experience and expectations too (Referring to the mysterious guest who gave poor ratings above). Let me just say that VGI is one of the most enjoyable stays I have had. You cannot... More

My husband and I have been going to Fancy Gap, VA for about 20 years and about a year ago we found the best place on the Blue Ridge Parkway to stay. The name of this place is the Volunteer Gap Inn and Cabins---the owners are Joann and Sam Bridges. The Bridges are some of the nicest people in the... More
