Hotel Description

Located adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 331 the historic Skyline Inn was built by John M Greer in the side of the mountain at the entrance to a cavern where a moonshine still was located. Construction began in 1942 and was completed in 1948 financed by the moonshine money. Mr. Greer was a master carpenterand stonemason. His handy work is present in the wood paneling marble floors and wood inlay tables throughout the building. Tales abound about the secret tunnels and caverns used by the moonshining crews and their activities during the 1940s and 50s. We have uncovered one of the caverns in the boiler room. This cavern goes about 20 feet under the back parking lot. The facility today consists of a 12 000 square foot Inn with 16 guest rooms all with hand made wood paneling. Also we have a restaurant with great food - BBQ Ribs mouth watering Ribeye Steaks and local Mountain Trout with some delicious vegetarian selections as well. This summer we have added to the ambience of dining at the Skyline by building a deck which over looks the Catawba Valley. The deck is located on the second floor and has its own bar facility and we serve our full menu weather permitting.
