This is an old fashioned mom and pop motel. The owners are so friendly and along with a gentleman named David run the entire motel. When we arrived we were told that they served dinner on the patio at reasonable price. As we sat on patio Mike the owner comes up and fires up the gas grill to cook dinner.... More

The Skyline Village inn is a classic slice of Americana preserved and updated for today. the rooms overlook a beautiful valley, and you're just seconds off the Blue Ridge Parkway. our GPS had us turn the wrong direction for the Skyline but know that it's just West of the Parkway not East. The rooms are older in decor, but clean.... More

Historical Inn that has been redone by current owners... looks better than ever. Was nice to find they have BMW and other motorcycles for rent.. That was very handy. Took friends there from Sweden that wanted to ride and stay cool in the NC heat weve had. Worked perfectly, and was very reasonable...

We stopped here overnight while we were riding the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was great. The beds were comfy, rooms were clean and the balcony with the view was amazing! The owner and his dog Barney are very friendly and really cater to their guests. We will definitely be back. They also have covered motorcycle parking in the back.

Skyline Village Inn was by far the best stay on our 12 day ride in NC. Inn owners Mike and Lynn have captured something very special in their Inn. I am afraid to say too much so I can keep this little gem a secret ;). The Inn truly has a fantastic view of the sky line which we enjoyed... More

We've stay stayed here a few times and the owners, Mike and his wife, are very kind and hospitable. They even brought breakfast up to us in our room because my mother is elderly and uses a wheelchair. The views here are spectacular too!!

Skyline Village is unique. It is ideally located for those wanting the mountain views or the great driving roads. The owners are genuinely lovely people who do all they can to make your stay the best it can be. The store offers beer, wine, snacks and soft drinks, and this is especially handy because town is a few miles away.... More

I didn't stay at the hotel, but I rented a BMW F650GS from Mike, the owner, and it was a delightful experience. He welcomed me taking the bike for a test spin to see if it was a good fit, provided me a map, and made the rental process really easy. I had so much fun on the bike for... More

Where to start? We planned a trip to the Little Switzerland area to put some more miles on our bikes and we had 4 couples in our group. We booked at the Skyline Inn based on some of the reviews and the location right at the parkway/diamondback roads. We were greeted with welcomes and smiles. The inn sits on Hwy... More

Hi Gary & friends. Thank you so much for staying with us. I'm glad the tools and garage area helped you when you had a tire problem. That's what it's for! We think it's another reason that we redefine the concept of "motorcycle friendly" here at the Skyline. Really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next... More

Last minute decision. Awesome view get the balcony well worth the extra money. Serve dinner and breakfast not included in price but very good.The view over the mountains is awh inspiring. Literally feet from the blue ridge pkwy. Have plenty of cold drinks and beer if you didn't bring your own.

We have covered motorcycle parking as well as ground floor access to all 3 floors. The building has been renovated with new plumbing, electrical and refinished red oak floors. There is some very unique wood paneling made from 22 varieties of native wood. We serve guests only in the restaurant with an excellent beer and wine selection for on and off premises.
