Travelers' Choice
Located at Milepost 331 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, halfway between Asheville and Blowing Rock/ Boone. Just 25 miles north of Mt. Mitchell and 25 miles south of Grandfather Mountain. We are motorcycle friendly and, in fact we rent Dual Sport Motorcycles. We are also Pet friendly. We are perched high on top of the Blue Ridge adjacent to the Parkway and only 200 feet from the Parkway ramp at the NC226 exit. We have 16 affordable rooms with a balcony that runs the length of the building overlooking the Catawba Valley and surrounding mountains. 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. Our gift shop has some unique rocks, gems and minerals, jewelry and Diamondback NC226A souvenirs and T-shirts. We pride ourselves on customer focus and hospitality. Come see us at the Skyline.

The Skyline is the perfect getaway spot on the Blue Ridge. The owners, Mike and Lynn, are exceptional hosts who take pride in making every guest feel welcome. I highly recommend the on-site breakfast and dinner. Highly recommend starting your day with a balcony sunrise. Mountain Heaven!!

Always a great stay with Mike & Lynn and one of my favorite places to stop when in that area. They do an amazing job with grilling a steak or other choices for dinner and also a breakfast for your stay at a extra price that I think is well worth it.

The Thrift family delivers hospitality at its finest. Great history, comfortable well appointed rooms, fabulous views & wonderful food. Like many of their guests we were on our motorcycle & enjoyed the covered bike barn. They also have 2 charging stations for EV's. Limited supper menu but high quality meals. Lump/backfin blue crab cakes were a true treat, no filler & beautifully pan fried. Sides were fresh & seasonal. Homemade pie portions were enormous. After a long day of mountain motorcycling the Skyline Village Inn is the place to relax, refresh & ride again!

Bring binoculars. The balcony overlooks beautiful mountains. Dark skies reveal stars galore. Dine inside or out. The tasty steak has a nice rub. The crab cake is good! Homemade pies for dessert. The owners treat you like family. I have stayed here 4 times.
