|If you need Blue Ridge Parkway lodging, the Chalet Inn is the closest Bed and Breakfast and Boutique Hotel to the Southern Entrance of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Cherokee as well as the North Carolina entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Minutes away our Smoky Mountain lodging is in a quiet private mountain cove — easy to find, yet so hard to leave.
Upon arrival, you'll feel embraced by nature even though you just left the four-lane two minutes before.
A cool spring-fed mountain brook curls around the inn and spills over a waterfall into a pond on its way to the valley floor.
And the view is spectacular. From the front of our B&B, layers of mountain ridges fade into the distance, with Doubletop Mountain towering above all, 19 miles away, and behind it the Blue Ridge Parkway. Walk our trail behind the Inn along the brook to our overlook and enjoy the view all the way to Clingman's Dome, the highest mountain in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Chose either our Bed and Breakfast or our Boutique Hotel; our 22 forested mountain acres are yours to enjoy. Our mountainsides and ridges are laced with trails, perfect for a leisurely walk in the woods. Find your own private spot on a mountainside — there are benches and hidden hammocks to share the quiet and enjoy a bottle of wine and cheese.
Challenge your traveling companion to a lawn game of badminton, croquet, bocci ball, tetherball or horseshoes. Or at day's end enjoy the campfire by the pond and share a smore.
Use the outdoor grill to prepare a picnic dinner. Or dine at one of the many nearby restaurants.
Wake to a sunrise over the Blue Ridge Parkway and watch the sun set over Clingmans Dome.
We'll do everthing we can to make your stay at The Chalet Inn a richly relaxing Smoky Mountain getaway, one that you'll remember for years.
