We have been traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway for over 30 years on almost an annual basis. Most trips are 7-10 days end-to-end, and we always make Pisgah Inn our end "base of operations" before heading back north. It is not a luxury resort so newcomers should not be expecting it to be so. But it is always clean and comfortable, and the folks are always warm and friendly. The restaurant is the best of all parkway accommodations along the entire length (the fried green tomatoes, whether basic or their specialty, are delectable!!) Recent renovations of one of the buildings are quite nice, and it would be nice if the other buildings could be done as well. We've been here for family travel, for just quick getaways, and to make for special family/friend reunions … we've been here through all types of weather … and we've been here when it's been unbelievably quiet and when it's been quite busy! But we've never been disappointed, and often we've been blessed with fun things like wild storms followed by incredible rainbows, bear sightings, skunk families, and fog so thick you couldn't see more than a few feet in front of you! We consider it all part of the adventure, and will continue to stay here as long as the Inn remains operational. Scuttlebutt says that there is concern over contract renewal … the Parkway has already lost so many of its "landmark" places to eat and to stay over the past few years, and it would be beyond sad to think we could lose Pisgah Inn as well. It is a wonderful place to relax and to renew one's spirit … so many stories over the years!!
