At 5000 feet plus HIGH, a Super Cool Mountain view of forever from your room balcony saves this property from it's early 1900s motel management style. Yes, the fairly new rooms are squeaky clean, basic with ceiling fan and NO air conditioning (the heat is good). And really, the view from your room eastward out across the big valley IS UNIQUE and worth all the shortfall. Nothing like it in the South. The fantastic views are also enjoyed from its cliff side Restaurant. Good Service and Food. So much potential for excellence, this property is under served by its seasonal approach to just providing the view and basics. But, that is why we stayed and overlooked that. So deal with it.
The adjacent Blue Ridge Parkway provides easy access to beautiful Asheville NC just 15 miles north 3000 feet down the mountain via good road through 10 tunnels. Excellent Drive. The Biltmore Estate was placed there by George Vanderbilt for the same beauty you will enjoy. And the Parkway allows you easy turn off like a city street at US 25 right in the city. All you desire in selection of shops and dining is there as soon as you turn right at that exit. Stunning and so new!
Back up the Mountain, Mt Pisgah trail is from the Inn and a campground for those types is right across the Parkway which also sports a Country Store. All but Gas. So plan ahead. And just 3 miles south on the Parkway is the exit east toward Brevard for the close one of a kind SLIDING ROCK. If you are an Eskimo with a pair of Levi's and soft sole water shoes, you can actually launch into an exhilarating splash down the waterfall sliding into the roped deep water pool at the bottom. If it's it 90F, you have a few seconds before you lose all feeling in your body :). ENJOY. THIS WHOLE AREA is a Wonderland.
