Innkeepers

Welcome to The Alpine Inn. We invite you to visit, relax, see the sights, and make new friends.

We bought the Alpine Inn in 2005. From the moment we saw the views off the balconies, we knew this was a special place people would love visiting. Over the last decade, we have made many new friends that came to stay as guests. And they return year after year. We call them Alpiners, and we are thankful for all of them, and we extend a warm welcome to our new guests and future friends.

“The Alpine lets us go back to a simpler time where books and views replace tv and rush hour traffic. Sunsets go on forever and everyone is friendly. Ron and Susan have made this happen. They are the best. Helpful hint to newcomers— always take breakfast on the porch.”  From TripAdvisor

The Alpine Inn is a family-owned & operated country inn that has served the Blue Ridge Parkway for over 75 years, and we like to think we have some of the most magnificent mountain views in the entire region!  We take pride in our Inn, because it’s where we live too, and we’ll treat you like family, because a visit to the Inn is a visit to our home. Our rooms do not have TVs, but one look out the window at the ever-changing natural scenery unfolding before your eyes and you will see why you wouldn’t switch it on even if it was there!  We are very proud of our reputation, and we are delighted that so many people have taken the time to share their experiences at the Alpine Inn with others. And we take special pride in being awarded the Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor, placing us in the top 10 percent of accommodations on TripAdvisor.
