The Glade Valley Bed and Breakfast is the coziest place to stay in Alleghany County, North Carolina. It is located within walking distance of the Blue Ridge Parkway and less then 8 miles from Sparta, North Carolina. The B&B is nestled on 29 acres of beautiful mountainside that features tall pines, walking trails and breathtaking views. Built by owners Jim and Margaret Connor (opened spring of 2006). The Glade Valley B&B is perfect for a tranquil escape. The beautiful log home boasts a large wrap around porch perfect for relaxing with a mountain view and cool breeze.

My husband planned a motorcycle trip in the mountains and searched for a B&B that would be halfway up the Blue Ridge Parkway. I admit I was a bit nervous about what to expect, since I hadn't gotten involved. The website certainly made Glade Valley B&B look very appealing, but wait for when you ride up and see it in person! Absolutely beautiful and in a spectacular setting! Then, once you go inside, every room is prettier than the one you just walked out of! The whole house is just gorgeous and the setting is so very peaceful. Jim and Margaret are the best!! Lovely people who want your stay to be spectacular...and that is exactly what it was! The breakfasts were out of this world...a huge breakfast and all delicious! The little extra things Jim and Margaret do to make your stay wonderful are very special. The only thing that we were disappointed about was the lack of restaurants anywhere in a nearby town. We should have checked that out before our trip because we would have added dinner to our B&B stay package. Other than that, this is a B&B you don't want to miss staying at if you are planning to be in the NC area and near the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were 100% happy customers and thrilled with our stay!
Thank you for a very nice review. We certainly appreciate all the kind words that you wrote. Addressing the lack of restaurants in our are; We have several good restaurants in our little town of Sparta, NC. Have: Mexican, Japanese, All American, Home Cooking, along with several fast food places. I'm not sure the night this guest was here, on Sunday's and Monday's the selection is smaller but still a nice assortment. We frequently have our guest tell us how much they enjoyed eating in Sparta. We have menus here to share with our guest before they head out and can tell them a bit about each of them. I do hope the writer of this review returns someday and we can direct them to some great eating.

Only 1 thing would have made our trip better and that is a long stay at Glade Valley. Very comfortable, log home in a relaxed setting. We will be back!

My husband and I wanted to get away for a weekend to a nice Bed & Breakfast, something we have never done before. For our first B&B experience, we could not have chosen a better place! The room (Yosemite) was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. It was a little chilly, but the fireplace helped greatly. And the living room was so nice too- I really enjoyed curling up by the fire with a good book. Margaret and Jim are phenomenal hosts- so friendly and down to earth. We were gone for a hike for most of the day on Saturday and when we returned, our room was fixed up nicely with plenty of fresh towels. And the food was amazing!! I am still dreaming about Margaret's apple french toast! I would highly recommend staying at Glade Valley B&B! We live in the Raleigh area, so it only took about 2 1/2 hours to get there and it was not hard to find. There is plenty to do- we drove into "town" (Sparta) for lunch & dinner and went hiking in Stone Mountain Park, which was just gorgeous. We cannot wait to return to Glade Valley B&B! See you soon Jim & Margaret!

We stay at Glade Valley B&B when we attend a music festival in the area. The breakfasts are out of this world. I never met a grit I liked until I met Margaret's cheese grits and as a baker she cant be matched! Our 3rd 4 day stay!

We actually could make ourselves as at home. After just a while it seemed as we knew Jim and Margaret since years; they are simply the best hosts we ever met before. Room was perfect and the location of the inn just superb! Breakfast was outstanding. We will definitively try to be back at least once! Javier & Vicky, 11/04/14
