One of our very favorite places to spend a quiet weekend is the Pisgah Inn located near milepost 405 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The rooms are old school quaint. There are no phones and no airconditioning. The tiny little bathrooms are circa 1955.
If you can almost see your house from the balcony of your hotel, is it really a getaway? The balconies overlook one of the most beautiful views from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hiking trails run right off the parking lot connecting to trails that range from easy to extremely difficult. There is always something to do and explore.
We have been run ragged over the past 6 or 7 months and just decided to run away and relax for 3 days. It was great. We hiked down to Pilot Rock during the day and did some serious porch sitting in the early mornings and late evenings. The restaurant was fabulous as always and my trout (their signature dish) was superb.
