My wife and I stayed at the Alpine Inn in Little Switzerland NC for just one night on our way to Asheville NC to visit the Biltmore Estate. The Alpine Inn is conviently located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at the exit for NC 226A. Upon our evening arrival, we were warmly greeted by inkeepers Ron and Susan Lough. Our room was similar to what we found at the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park. It was comfortable, clean, and quiet. We slept well that night. The next morning we ate breakfast at their lovely outdoor patio which has a breathtaking view of the valley below and the neighboring mountains. The atmosphere of the Alpine Inn and its nearby shops is just amazing. I felt like I went back in time to a bygone era. I highly recommend the Alpine Inn and the town of Little Switzerland.
