We recently spent a night in one of our favorite locations on the Blue RIdge Parkway. The Pisgah Inn is quite literally in the clouds, at 5,000 feet. Every room has a mountain view. The facilities are clean and well kept by the park service. The restaurant is excellent (I'd recommend the fried chicken). There is a wonderful gift shop on the premises as well. There are several trails of varying degrees of difficulty near by. Other nearby attractions include the Biltmore Estate, which originally owned Mount Pisgah; Mount Mitchell which is the highest point east of the Mississippi and Crabtree Falls.
I would note that the rooms are not air conditioned, but this is rarely a problem since the nights tend to be cool even in the summer. The Inn is open from the end of March through the end of October. Reservations are strongly recommended. A very nice choice of breakfast options are included in the price of the room.
