Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills, The Inn at Glen Alpine is a 1913 country manor lovingly transformed into an inviting bed and breakfast dedicated to old-fashioned hospitality. The Digs Begin your day on the porch or in the beautiful dining room with a delicious two-course breakfast made from organic, minimally processed, locally sourced ingredients. The innkeepers choose environmentally responsible policies whenever possible, from using natural cleaning products to LED lighting and eco-friendly toiletries to recycled and repurposed furnishings-allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint as you unwind. Each guest suite features 100% cotton linens on a king-size bed, plush robes and towels, large closets, original century-old pine flooring, a 32-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player, and access to the common areas with a fridge, ice machine, tea- and coffeemaker, wine glasses and corkscrews, and the inn's DVD selection. Both suites have their individual charms, too: Bella Suite. Admire the antique headboard and custom wallpaper before soaking in the clawfoot tub or taking in the view from the eight-windowed sitting room. Magnolia Suite. Relax amid antique furniture and the sitting area's chaise lounge, surveying the magnolia and dogwood trees from the spacious windows. The Destination Visit the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and nearby wild spaces like Lake James State Park, South Mountains State Park, Linville Gorge, and Pisgah National Forest, where nature trails wind through timeless forests and waterfalls splash ceaselessly. Local wineries and breweries beckon to pleasure-seekers, and farm-fresh restaurants are always cooking up something new. Plus, the famously scenic drive along Blue Ridge Parkway is just 30 minutes away, and the many attractions of Asheville are just 45 miles to the west.
