“Lovely place just off the parkway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is exactly the kind of place my partner and I imagined staying when we were planning our trip along the Blueridge Parkway. The location is fantastic - so peaceful, with a beautiful porch and far reaching views. The hostess was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. This is absolutely the place to stay if you are passing through Fancy Gap!

Also, Mabry Mill is just 20 mins away and serves a fantastic all day breakfast menu!

We stayed at the Volunteer Gap Inn and Cabins while in Fancy Gap for a family reunion. This place is great! The owners are very friendly. The location is right on the Parkway just north of Fancy Gap. We were in room seven of the Inn. This place is clean and comfortable. Motorcycle and dog friendly. We will be going back in the Fall for a longer stay.

Room Tip: If you can, stay in a cabin.

We stayed in the inn rooms for one night on a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cabins are visible from the Parkway, making for easy access. There is a broad front porch with lots of chairs and we had a delightful evening relaxing and chatting with the other guests. There is a bass pond, full of big fish, and it we enjoyed watching the swallows diving over it in the evening. the rooms were large enough, and very clean, with a kitchenette (sink, small fridge and microwave). As someone observed in another review, there is not much around in the way of shopping, so if you choose to eat-in, better stock up beforehand. Excellent value.

My two boys and I stopped over for a one night stay as we returned from a beach vacation. The Cabins were easy to find and large enough to accommodate our needs. The weather prohibited us from spending any time outside and actually made for a difficult trip home since the parkway route in was closed overnight due to snow/ice.

A couple of things to note.

I've stayed in cabins before at $100 a night, I thought these were reasonably priced. That said, the kitchen is very limited, as in only a microwave and small fridge. You aren't close to anything in terms of dining options or grocery so you have to bring in what you need and basically cooking is limited to sandwiches or "heat and eat" canned foods. The freezer wouldn't even be big enough to keep a couple of frozen entrees.

The location was beautiful, and given the right time of year, it would have been possible to spend some time outside and even grill dinner.

Definitely a good one or two night spot.

The cabins are run by Deena and family, and is very clean and well run. The location is 6.5 miles from the intersection of Hwy 52 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, and central to virtually every Parkway attraction in SW VA....great area and totally unlike the Waynesville/Asheville "mess".
We like it so much we are looking for a cabin to buy up there as it is only 2.5 hours from SC.

A lovely setting for these rooms and cabins, set in a peaceful location, just off the Parkway. A kitchenette stocked with a your requirements, and a delightful bedroom with a big ceiling fan, lovely! A stroll down to the fish ponds makes a perfect evening, or just sit on the porch in a rocking chair
