“Sit back and relax”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

My friends & I have stayed in a cabin the last 2 years. It is so relaxing to sit on the porch after a day of riding the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The cabin was clean, has a small fridge & a gas fireplace. Even in August it can be cool in the evenings.
The staff is probably one of their best features, very friendly & knowledgeable of the area.
The hotel has a nice restaurant overlooking the mountains & a bar, eat in either one, of course the bar is more relaxed & less formal, both serve the same good food. If the Inn is booked over so many rooms the restaurant serves a morning buffet with no cooked to order breakfast, otherwise if under booked the you can have eggs your way
Biker & bicycle friendly with lots of parking, great place to stay if you want to remain in the mountains in the Parkway

Stayed August 2014, travelled with friends

Easy on and off the Blueridge Parkway. Pool very nice as is the outside terrace for meals and drinks. Rocking chairs overlooking the mountains well worth the stay. The meals were expensive. Lattes available in coffee & ice cream shoppe.

The inn is well situated in Little Switzerland, NC which is a pleasant well kept town that has for the most part been bypassed by commercialism, on The Blue Ridge Parkway. The inn itself has maintained its charm and "quaintness" while being a modern accommodation. The rooms are exceptional clean and some are pet friendly.

It has an excellent restaurant that offers a most outstanding buffet on Friday evenings featuring fresh seafood and a most excellent prime rib. The food quality rivals any we have found in our travels. The freshness of the food, especially the seafood and beef, is outstanding.

Room Tip: Ask for a room w/ a view.. which is exquisite!

This was our second stay at the Inn. There are not many great place to stay right on the BRP but this is most definitely one. The spacious rooms are well decorated and are newly furnished beautifully. The view from your balcony are fantastic. The grounds are meticulously maintained and are simply very scenic and definitely deliver the essence of being in the mountains. We felt extremely welcomed by the friendly and attentive staff. It is a great location being in between Craggy Gardens and Linville. We stayed in the Heidi and the Alpine suites which I highly recommend. The place stays fairly full with good reason so I would not wait till last minute to book your room.

Room Tip: I can't speak about the standard rooms but spend the extra cash and stay in the Alpine or Heidi...

This is a very nice resort right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just when you think your not going to find a spot you fall right into paradise. Yes it gets foggy early in the mornings cause your 3,200 ft above sea level. I've stayed in the main part of the Hotel several times. My favorite is the 2 story A Frame cabins on site. They have a restaurant with excellent food. Rainbow Trout, Ribs, Steaks to name a few. They even have a ice cream shop which opens early in the morning. Took my Uncle there last time & while I was checking out he got ice cream. Next time I'll let him check us out. Great views, they do weddings and are able to accommodate lots of people. If you don't spend the night there at least eat. Food is excellent.

Room Tip: If you stay in main part of hotel get top floor off back with awesome views. My personal favor it is...

Good location on the blue ridge parkway
We stayed in a room in the main lodge. The balcony was so small that the chairs had to be turned sideways in order to sit outside
The room could have used a little more furniture and needed a few updates
The grounds were nice. The restaurant served dinner outside which was nice

Spent an impromptu foggy night at Switzerland Inn on a Sunday. We were thrilled they had an available room. Enjoyed a delicious dinner in their onsite restaurant which was both convenient and tasty. Our room was clean, and spacious. We return at least once a year to this "downscale" homey retreat to either stay for a night or two or stop in for lunch (seasonally) on their lovely patio. On a summer August day, it is so special to leave the Charlotte area heat and sit on their patio with a jacket on for lunch!!!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for a mountain view room!
