Go back in time to the informal and warm setting of mountain hospitality, to the furnishings of your great grandparents, to stunning scenery and a relaxed philosophy. Would you like a cabin of your own for a while? Does the mystery of nature still excite you? Are you craving a little extra nurture, simple living, and a place in which to regather the scattered pieces of your mind and spirit?
The Mountain Hearth Lodge is a rustic bed and breakfast getaway in a prime forest-setting, along the edge of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy its bubbling creek of clear mountain water, two inviting ponds like miniaturized Waldens, trails, wildlife, specially marked meditation walks, and all the atmosphere and breathtaking beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountain range. It is located in the heart of the unspoiled province of Alleghany County,
between Roaring Gap and Sparta, North Carolina, on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Don't be surprised if you see communities of deer, clutches of wild turkeys, red-tailed hawks, and a bear with its cub rummaging for berries in the dark woods. Daniel Boone loved this area, Gerard Manley Hopkins would have relished it, and so would have the likes of Thoreau, Audubon, Teddy Roosevelt, and Winnie the Pooh.
You want something unusual and out of the way. You and your family need to spend some time off. We understand. At Mountain Hearth Lodge your needs are
of utmost importance. We are small, quiet, quaint and comfortable. You won't get lost in a crowd of strangers here. You will enjoy the comfort and convenience of your own home away from home. Our inn is designed to provide a unique environment of warmth for the soul and renewal for the spirit. Come rest with us for a spell.
Mornings at the Mountain Hearth Lodge begin with a gourmet breakfast. If a full country breakfast is your heart's desire, we're ready. You can almost smell the coffee from here, along with a variety of home-baked muffins, cereals, juices and fresh cut seasonal fruit. Or if you prefer something delicate and light, just let us know.
