Big Lynn Lodge is about a Heavenly experience you can have if you appreciate vast unencumbered picturesque landscapes including mountain tops and valleys with billowing smoky white clouds against a rich blue background with rising and setting bright yellow sunrises and sunsets that take your breath away. Newly updated comfy cabins dating back to the early 1900s capture the historic...

Step back in time to when life was simpler. If you are looking for luxury accommodations this lodge is not for you. But if you are taking a trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and need a place to stay overnight, or for the weekend, I highly recommend it! It's like a little roadside motel that also has cottages ove

We once again find ourselves drawn to Big Lynn Lodge. This stay was a spur of the moment trip and we were happy to get a room as many many folks were on the Blue Ridge leaf peeping. We stayed in one of the motel-style rooms facing the BRP. This was our 1st time in one of these rooms and...

Probably the best B & B in the Smokey Mountains close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Less expensive than most others in the area, and includes breakfast and dinner for every day of your stay. Spacious rooms that are clean and comfy, along with spectacular mountain views from your balcony rocking chair. The hosts are friendly and accomodating, and every...

We were lucky to get a room here at the last minute because of a slip-up we made and because so many residents were escaping a hurricane on the state's coast and others were leaf peeping. The lodge gives you a nice free breakfast with your choice of entrees AND a free dinner. The dinner is of the lodge's choice...

The rockers and the view just slow down time and let you just take a breath of mountain air and relax.The view is breathtaking but what...

A couple of us dirty bikers showed up with no reservations hoping for a decent room. What a gem we found. Hoyt, the owner, was incredibly gracious as was his staff. You get dinner and breakfast with the price of your room so the overall price was good. And the views. Oh my. It is just relaxing. So relaxing. We...

We stayed for a couple of nights in cottage 103. This place is great for couples and would be great for families or groups too. It is very close to the Blueridge Parkway and thus groups of Bikers (both motorized and non) were at the hotel. The property has a variety of room types that reflect the organic growth over...

Big Lynn rents cabins. I had a million dollar view of the mountains which constantly changes with the weather. Hoyt, the owner, told me my cabin was built in 1905 and has been upgraded with a nice shower and clean room. Food was great. They serve breakfast and dinner and both are included in the room rate. Not only was...
