The Alpine Inn is a unique place. The view is beautiful but somewhat limited because of growing trees all around. Parking is not good at all. Larger vehicles cannot park directly in front of the building, so you have to park across the highway right on a sharp curve. Crossing back and forth to the facility can be dangerous. I was almost overcome by a car coming around the curve from the uphill side. It was upon me before I could hear it coming. The rooms are very small and dated. The bathroom was tiny and not convenient at all. The breakfast provided (at an extra charge) was very limited - no protein items available, all high carb items. It was not good for my diet as a diabetic. The two inn keepers were very friendly and kind, but they have a limited facility to work with. I guess you pay for the view, but otherwise it is over-priced for what you get.

A hidden gem right off the Blue Ridge Parkway! Spectacular Sunrise with the best view of the mountains I've seen. Ron and Susan are the perfect hosts.
