      Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the Hickory Nut Gap Inn offers commanding views of the peaks, valleys and woods of Hickory Nut Gorge. Drive up one-mile of traversing  lush forest to a most incredible Mountaintop  Inn. You will want to rock, relax, watch the hummingbirds feed and take in the spectacular view from the 85-foot screened porch.

     Curl up with a book in the great room with huge stone fireplace and cathedral ceiling. Play pool or ping pong. Take a sauna. Watch a movie or play every board game imaginable. Or,--and here’s the clincher—bowl on a regulation-size Brunswick bowling lane! Enjoy majestic mountain views from the porch where continental breakfast is served each morning.

     Each of the six lovingly-decorated guest rooms is finished with a different kind of wood, all milled from trees found on the mountain: hickory, black walnut, knotty pine, maple, red oak and wormy chestnut. And, each room has a private bath.

     Breathe fresh mountain air as you hike about this 75-acre estate. Just minutes from scenic Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, boating, golfing, shopping and gourmet dining make this vacation spot one to return to time and again.

     Innkeepers Bo Trammell and Courtney Thompson hope that you feel like you’re staying at home—and what an incredible home! Once on this mountain, you won’t want to leave.
