The Pisgah Inn is centrally located to many major attractions. The Inn is a great place to base your vacation. Of course, you may want to simply “hide out” at the Inn and go nowhere. In any case whether you choose to sit on your porch and “view watch” with a good book, travel or hike in the surrounding area, Pisgah Inn is a great choice.
Things to do without getting in your car:
Hiking: Miles of well-maintained trails lead away from the Inn in all directions. Trail maps are available at the front desk (with more detailed maps available for sale in our gift/crafts shop.)
View Watching: Simply sitting on your porch or balcony is an activity that is not to be taken for granted. Beautiful views of the mountains and valley below afford you a sense of peace that is often missed in our daily lives. The views from our 5,000 foot elevation is spectacular.
