Five buddies on motorcycles recently took a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains to ride all the scenic roads. On a suggestion from a friend who had previously stayed at the Big Lynn Lodge, we booked rooms for a 4 day 3 night stay. We were all some what skeptical about not staying a national chain hotel, but after staying there the only problem we had was we couldn't stay longer. I don't think there are enough ways to describe the place and owners and how they bent over backwards to make us feel welcome to the point we almost felt like family. The place is very unique and interesting. Don't let the rustic mountain look of the place fool you. Even though it was established in 1930 the current owners have the place remodeled, very clean and comfortable yet maintaining the rustic mountain atmosphere and look. Breakfast and dinner are provided with the very reasonable price of your room. To quote Hoyt the owner "If you don't gain weight while you are here, we haven't done our job". That is an understatement! The home cooking which includes fresh bread and pies every day is unbelievable and no one leaves the table hungry. The rooms are very clean with updated bathrooms, new beds and bedding, new carpet, yet maintain the knotty pine wood. When they say the view is to die for, you have to see it with your own eyes as it can't be described.
We have already started planning our return trip for next year!!!!
Thanks Vickie and Hoyt!
