“Pisgah revisited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2008

This was our second visit to the Pisgah Inn, and coincidently we had the same room, which seemed to have changed very little since 2005.
The view remains sublime, ever changing with the sun and shadows (weather permitting!) and the mists in the valleys. You can look out at it from your window, your balcony, the viewing area by the restaurant, or from your dining table, though your table may not be near the window.. It’s worth looking out at night. Those dark ranges of hills and mountains look desolate during the day so it’s surprising how many lights twinkle out there.
But remember apart from the one view and a couple of drab trails there is nothing else to do. On both our visits we found a couple of nights quite long enough.
The room was clean and of reasonable size, although the bathroom facilities let it down a bit.
The restaurant offered good food but the tables were packed in tightly and the service was poor. What you ordered, what you got, and what you paid for didn’t always tally.

Being a regular visitor to the Pisgah Inn on a yearly basis I was very pleased to get one of the newly renovated king rooms. Been going there for about 10 years and always had to struggle with the standard beds. The renovation is a complete redo of the inside and out, really looks good. Electrical and plumbing is totally green!! New furnishing are great along with the wall mounted LCD TV. OK, so it's a little pricey, when you are getting a million dollar view from your balcony what is a couple more bucks? Hope to get back there this fall!!

We stayed in the newly remodeled builing (there are two)and it was perfectly nice. Wonderful porch view (we were upstairs which I recommend) with two rockers, nice interior with flat screen TV (!), refrigerator, coffee pot...very small but nice enough bathroom with enough room to shower. ...vanity outside. No problems sleeping with open windows,very quiet..much more than I expected from "motel" on Blue Ridge Parkway. Unbeatable restaurant views, but, the more basic meals beat out the fancy stuff...dinner usually $25 per person.. breakfast not inexpensive but there is a little store at the hotel that stocks quite a bit of snack and cereal food. Very helpful and friendly (but busy) staff. There is a lobby internet connection available to guests but very difficult cell phone service on the mountain top..drive a few miles to pick up a signal. Payphone available at the Inn, outside. Nature programs available at campground across the street...but mostly pretty academic subjects (bats!)...Housekeeping makes the beds while you're out and takes the towels, but no heavy duty cleaning while you are in residence. Nice enough for 2-3 days, then time to go for us. We did not explore the nature trails at the Inn, but lots of people do which might necessitate a longer stay. Sliding Rock, Cradle of Forestry and Arboretum (wonderful) close by... Also, very crowded Hendersonville and Brevard.....

Perched high upon the mountain top, this charming property has an enviable location and breathtaking scenery. During our stay, the Pisgah Inn was in the final stages of opening its newest building and renovating its older rooms with new fixtures and furniture which were both comfortable and stylish. It is important to note that the rooms are on the smaller side and the bathrooms are *really* small; nevertheless, each has a refrigerator and a balcony with two rocking chairs overlooking the most amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains I have every had the pleasure of enjoying.

In addition to the hotel, the Pisgah Inn also has a restaurant on site, which my husband and I enjoyed for both dinner and breakfast. In addition to the fantastic view from our table, we were treated to two amazingly good meals. The menu is surprisingly creative (trail-mix encrusted trout? So good!) and the wine list was extensive, too.

Our stay at this Inn had the feeling of timelessness from the days of old when road-trips were still unique and before the proliferation of chain-hotels. Ultimately, I wish we had booked more than just one night, as I could feel myself unwinding with each passing rock on my balcony chair.

We loved staying at the Mt. Pisgah Inn. You absolutely can not beat the location. The reason I only give it only an "above average" rating is that the rooms are very basic hotel rooms, nothing fancy, and the bathrooms are small. The views are fantastic, though, and the restaurant on property was very nice. It was great to be able to go for a hike, take a hot shower, and then go to the dining room and have a nice meal. The service was great -- we ate dinner and breakfast there. We loved climbing to Mt. Pisgah and highly recommend the trail up.

My family and I absolutely love the Pisgah Inn. We had a long weekend
there in September and have already booked a week for the 4th of July. I've been going there since the early 90's and try to get there
at least once/year. The rooms are spartan--no cable or fancy beds. But the view is incomparable! We love to sit on the balcony and watch
the birds. It is the best place to de-stress. And the restaurant is fantastic as well.

My husband & I just returned from a two week trip through the Smoky/Blue Ridge Mountain areas and the Pisgah Inn was one of our favorites. The view was incredible!

Since this was our lowest-cost inn, we weren't expecting alot. What we found was a nice & clean motel-style room with a view that could not be outdone! Our check-in process was fine - quick & smooth. We had an upstairs queen room - the linens & furniture were fine and we appreciated the balcony rocking chairs and having the sink outside the bathroom.
We had both dinner & breakfast in the restaurant. We were impressed with the food quality and our servers were helpful and friendly.

We consider this a 'must-stay' if you are in the area!
