Loved the house and the breakfast was excellent

Very nice little bed and breakfast. Innkeeper was knowledgeable about the area and was very accommodating during our stay. I would certainly stay there again.

The innkeeper Jane runs a very relaxing, very engaging home away from home. Being a historian she has much to share and her stories are just great! Her spirit and spunk are alive and well. The Inn is lovely and spotless. The breakfasts are served on your time schedule and hardy unless you choose otherwise. You need to try this Bed and Breakfast! Russ and Mary Brown, WI

Well maintained historical home, clearly loved by it's owner and inn keeper Jane. Comfortable and clean, with lots of homey touches and a hearty, hot breakfast every morning.
5 on September 09, 2014
Loved the house, location, innkeeper, breakfast and room. My friend went with me and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Each evening after I finished working, we gathered on the wrap around porch and talked while enjoying a glass of wine. Reminded of days when visiting neighbors was still a popular thing to do. Going back later this month and intend to stay here whenever I am in the Morganton area. I HIGHLY recommend this inn!!!

Lovely inn, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, quiet (never disturbed by the other guests. Convenient tea/coffee/water/sack station just outside my door (but never disturbed by its users.) Delicious breakfast each morning served at a time agreed upon by guests. Innkeeper Jane is gracious, helpful, & kind. Delightful stay

We had a lovely time during our stay at The Inn at Glen Alpine. We were Jane's number one priority and she made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed or wanted. This B & B is both beautiful and relaxing. The Inn is truly a rare find in little Glen Alpine with Morganton just a short distance away.
5 on July 29, 2014
Our stay at The Inn at Glen Alpine was delightful. The Inn and the grounds were very pretty, and we loved sitting on the porch with a cheese plate and a glass of wine. Jane, the innkeeper, is warn & hospitable. We enjoyed chatting with her. We would go again.
5 on July 24, 2014
Our stay at the Inn at Glen Alpine was wonderful. It was only for less than 24 hours, but our gracious innkeeper, Jane, was welcoming and informative at arrival, so that we were quickly on our way up to Linville Falls for a short hike along cool pathways, amongst blooming Rhododendrons and Sourwoods, leading to the falls and the breathtaking views they provide. The Colonial Revival house is expansive but welcoming at every turn. The grounds are very well kept and the porch is simply too inviting to ignore. One must sit and enjoy the repose it provides beneath the ancient shade trees. We stayed in the Magnolia Room. It was furnished in eclectic comfort, with all the amenities travelers have come to expect. Breakfast was delicious, with Jane paying close attention to each guest's dietary needs (She had already served breakfast to two gluten-intolerant Vegans whose travel schedule required an earlier eating time). Our breakfast included a fresh fruit medley with shaved almonds (with topping choices of cinnamoned yogurt and/or granola), a portion of apple pastry, a deliciously light egg & bacon quiche, and gluten free biscuits with a choice of fruit jams and butter as toppings; all-of-which was served on a fine set of patterned china. Pleasant conversation with Jane and a few other guests made the breakfast a special treat indeed. Upon discovering that we were passing through Valdese en route to Charlotte, Jane provided us with directions to McGalliard Falls, where we were able to partake of its beauty thanks solely to her knowledge of the area. We departed having wished we could stay longer which, I guess, is about as great a compliment as one can bestow.
4.8 on July 15, 2014
My husband and I were looking for a nice place to stop overnight on our way up to DC. Usually B&B's do not allow one night stays. This place did and we were very happy with this. The place was beautifully kept and very comfortable. I was even allowed to play the piano and entertain myself as if I was at home. It was lovely. The food at breakfast was wonderful and Jane was also accommodating to my special dietary needs. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. There wasn't much to do in town but we weren't there to stay so that really didn't matter to us. All in all a wonderful stay and we will come back if we head that way again.
5 on June 21, 2014
My husband and I wanted a place to get-a-way for the weekend. We have never been to a B&B and was pleasantly surprise. The Innkeeper is so delightful, each breakfast absolutely wonderful! We dined at Wisteria Restaurant in Morganton, a "farm-to-table" experience...the food was fabulous...fresh from the farm!. We highly recommend this B&B. The scenery is gorgeous!
4.8 on February 23, 2014
My husband and I only stayed one night as we were in the area just a short time. Jane met us at the door and was cordial and very friendly. She showed us around the home which is lovely and quite historical (some of its original features remain and have been restored). Jane has many interesting books and is very helpful with selecting something to read. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom had a spacious shower that we both loved. A few trains do come through during the sleeping hours but their disturbance was minimal. Breakfast was delicious and Jane went out of her way to accommodate our likes and dislikes. We were the only ones there that night but she was more than capable of handling a group. We will return if we are back in the area. It was a pleasurable experience.
5 on July 11, 2013
I found the Inn online, read the reviews, and decided this was the place to stay. What a beautiful home, large rooms, very comfortable indoors and outside on the enormous wraparound porch. 1500 sq ft! It was a great place to sit and watch the lightning during a huge thunderstorm. Mother Nature showing off... Our breakfasts were delicious, and Jane was very helpful with suggestions on things to see and do. She had maps available and restaurant menus to look over. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite - loved our room, and plan to go back again. Thanks, Jane, for a lovely stay!
4.8 on April 25, 2013
Host was wonderful - made us feel at home. Exceptionally neat and clean rooms. Quiet location, except for the train, which was a pleasant reminder of the past. Modern bathroom. Difficult to find a better breakfast. The best measure of any place to stay or restaurant is the answer to this question: "Would you visit again?" My answer for the Inn at Glen Alpine is an unqualified - "YES."
5 on March 14, 2013
Jane met us at the front door with a warm greeting and made us feel totally at home. The Garden Room was beautifully done, wonderfully inviting, comfortable and clean. Information on attractions and places to eat were freely offered. We spent an enjoyable evening chatting with Jane in the kitchen before turning in. Our breakfast was a great start to a busy day. A longer stay is definitely in order!
5 on November 18, 2012
This was a last minute booking whilst we were touring NC Jane was most welcoming and friendly, and full of helpful information. The house was impeccable. Lovely room and excellent breakfast - it felt as if we were visiting friends. Thank you Jane for a great stay !
4.2 on November 12, 2012
This was my first time at a B & B and I was absolutely charmed. The pictures shown on the website are a very accurate representation of what to expect. The Innkeeper was charming and very knowledgable of the area even though she isn't from North Carolina. Loved the wide porches. Do not stay here if watching TV is important to you as the TV's in each room are quite small.
5 on September 03, 2012
We stay at the B&B when breaking a seven hour drive in half, and also just to get away. The owner is helpful, friendly, and had a great cook. We're so glad we found this place.
5 on August 13, 2012
Inn at Glen Alpine is a treasure of a B&B. Jean greets you warmly and makes you feel like you have arrived home. The inn is cozy and relaxing. Can't wait to return with my whole family.
5 on July 26, 2012
What a great B&B! Thoroughly enjoyable, awesome breakfast, amazingly clean, and what a wonderful innkeeper! You will be hard pressed to find a better one anywhere!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at The Inn at Glen Alpine in late March last week for three days. We were referred to the Inn by my wife's family in the area and had not stayed in a Bed & Breakfast for some time. We were very impressed with the wonderful atmosphere that Jane Hogg, the Innkeeper, has created. The rooms are large, exquisitely decorated, and very comfortable, each with private baths. This place was immaculate and the historic features include 15' ceilings and large parlors and living spaces. The wrap around front porch was one welcoming feature as we sat outside in the warm breezes of the North Carolina Spring afternoons. Jane really went out of her way to make you feel at home. The breakfasts were the best we have had anywhere as was the company of other guests. Guest refrigerators are also available for refreshments. We will come back again and stay here most definitely. Stephen and Cathy

We visited the Inn at Glen Alpine and also attended the wine festival there. Beautiful home, excellent breakfast and most gracious innkeeper! Fabulous time! We will be back!
4.6 on January 10, 2012
I was in the Morganton area for a professional interview and wanted a restful place to crash. Jane's place was the perfect choice. My friend and I loved our room (The Garden Room) and felt very well taken care of throughout our two night stay, including our lovely breakfasts and the offer of a glass of wine in the evening. Jane also went out of her way to help me get a feel for the area, as I hope to be relocating here soon. Overall, I don't see why you would want to stay anywhere else in the area. This is a perfect launching pad to explore Burke County. Jane is a friendly and wonderful hostess, and you can't go wrong with her bed and breakfast.
5 on October 04, 2011
The Inn at Glenn Alpine was first picked because of it location. It is close to the beautiful mountains and scenic wonders of western N.C. and I saw the beautiful porch online. My brother, sister and I had not been together for five years and we wanted to be able to visit. The Inn at Glenn Alpine turned out to be so much more. Attention to detail, great food, a lovely host, and a warm atmosphere made for a perfect venue for our visit. Excellent!
5 on October 02, 2011
I and 2 of my friends spent 3 nights at this quaint B&B & really loved the well cooked breakfasts & evening get-togethers with other guests to discuss our exciting days. It was a terrific getaway.
5 on September 16, 2011
Staying at the Inn at Glen Alpine is like going home. Jane is always glad to see us and the rooms are so inviting. For breakfast we had coffee, Juice, quiche, cinnamon buns, fruit w/granola and yogurt. What else could you ask for. The night before one of the guests played his guitar and sang for us . What a pleasant ending to a great stay in Glen Alpine. Ron & Lisa
5 on August 02, 2011
Great innkeeper, breakfasts, rooms and location. Highly recommend.
4.8 on June 02, 2011
Don't let the location or size of community scare you away. From the Inn its just a short walk to the ice cream parlor, local diner, winery, antique shop and the Family Dollar store. Truly a tight knit community with friendly locals that will talk about most anything. Your a short driving distance from Hickory, Black Mountain, The Biltmore Mansion, and Ashville. For the nature lovers there's the beautiful Lake James State Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, and much more. Our hostess, Jane, was a source of knowledge regarding the local mountains, hiking trails, streams and natural water falls. And a great cook! Tim & Kandy Davis
4.8 on April 10, 2011
I am a single woman who travels for business, and I always love staying in places like the Inn at Glen Alpine, where I can have privacy as I want, in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Jane Hogg was the best hostess - she made me feel welcome and safe. I loved the setting of the wonderful old home and my room was just beautiful! Thank you, Jane! Anna M.
5 on April 07, 2011
My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B before and had decided to try one in the hopes to get a better feel for the area. Everything about our stay in mid-March was wonderful; the innkeeper is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to help us decide on places to visit during our stay.
5 on January 21, 2011
Our stay at the Inn at Glen Alpine was our first taste of bed and breakfast life. And I must say it was a great treat. Jane and Skyla were such a delight. Jane made it so easy to settle in and feel at home. Not only did she cook like a top notch chef but she made us feel at home. I would recommend her to anyone looking to stay in that area. We are hoping to go back to visit the Inn at Glen Alpine and enjoy some spring time there. Jane will always be considered a friend.
5 on December 18, 2010
My husband I stayed at the Inn while searching for property nearby at Lake James. Jane was wonderful! She gave us maps of the nearby area, suggested a few places we might like to visit, and was overall very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts, per our choice, were "Innkeeper's Choice". Every morning was a lovely surprise. We will be staying here on future househunting trips.
5 on October 29, 2010
Just a great experience at the Inn at Glen Alpine! Jane is great and the breakfast is wonderful. Have stayed there two straight years on our anniversary and will probably stay again in the future. The spa room is awesome and everything is spotless!
5 on October 26, 2010
My husband and I recently spent 3 nights and felt like we were staying with a beloved relative. Jane is a great host and the inn is beautiful and nicely detailed. Evening chats on the verandah were an unexpected delight as Jane told us stories about the history of the area. One caveat: the train comes through during the night and if you're in the front rooms with your window open, it will wake you up. But with the window closed, it was a gentle reminder of days gone by. We will return!
4.0 on September 06, 2010
Our room was perfect. A large, extremetly comfortable bed with a sitting room off to the side. A chaise lounge in the sitting room made reading a luxurious experience. Jane is friendly, attentive and truly cares about each guest's experience and comfort. She provides all the ammenities, chocolates in the room, cookes and coffee just outside the door, and freh flowers that she grows in her garden. A gem in a small town.
5 on September 02, 2010
This was by far the best! The home was absolutely beautiful, clean, cozy, and breakfast was superb. Jane was the most gracious innkeeper - you couldn't ask for anything better. Will definitely stay here again. Lou, Charlotte, NC
5 on September 01, 2010
This past weekend my husband and I stayed for two nights at The Inn at Glen Alpine, and we thought it was an outstanding experience. We have stayed at many B&B's ; and quite honestly, this was the first time an innkeeper met us at the door, introduced herself and warmly welcomed us. The innkeeper, Jane Hogg, is a really interesting and nice person; and we had a number of very good conversations with her. We also met several fascinating guests at the two breakfasts we had there. The suite we had was very pretty, spacious, and had everything we could hope for to make us comfortable. The breakfasts are divine(stuffed French toast one morning). Jane helped us with maps, restaurant suggestions, etc. I highly recommend this inn. Anne
4.8 on August 24, 2010
We have just returned from our 3rd stay at the Inn at Glen Alpine in a year and have been treated like royalty each time. Jane is a fabulous host, going the extra mile to make sure guests are comfortable and well-fed. She even accomodates my gluten allergy, preparing special meals just for me. That's above and beyond!
5 on August 17, 2010
I have never stayed at a B&B before so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was thrilled and definitely expect to return to the Inn at Glen Alpine. The home is gorgeous and incredibly spacious and very clean. Jane, the innkeeper is so accommodating. We arrived much later than expected due to travel complications and Jane not only didn't mind, she fixed us a sandwich at 11pm since we hadn't had any dinner!! Her breakfasts are out of this world. I just let her surprise me every morning because I couldn't even dream up anything close to what she fixed for me. I taunted my friends who weren't staying there with all the details of my multi-course breakfast every day! I stayed in the Spa suite which was so beautiful but all the rooms are wonderful. I really felt like family and was treated so. I am thrilled about my new friend in Glen Alpine and look forward to staying with Jane again next summer hopefully, if not before.
4.6 on August 13, 2010
The Inn at Glen Alpine was an ideal place to stay while visiting friends in the area. The extra comfy bed in the Magnolia Room, the delectable breakfast, and a gracious innkeeper made our two day stay a most pleasant one!
5 on August 11, 2010
We just returned last night from a two night stay at the Inn at Glen Alpine. What a wonderful stay we had! Jane is a lovely person and a wonderful hostess. She does not treat you as paying guests but as family while you are there. Everytime we returned to the Inn my husband would call out to her, "Hi Mom, we're home!".... Jane is very accomodating and breakfast can be anything you want although both days we let her choose and we were not disappointed. My husband and I recently bought property in nearby Lake James and will definitely be returning to the Inn whenver we are in the area. If you need picnic food, stop the Depot which is around the corner from the Inn. It's a local luncheonette and the owner will make you great sandwiches to take with you. Also visit the Lake James Winery (right across the street from the Inn) and have a tasting ($4 per person which includs a Lake James Winery glass)... My husband and I highly recommend The Inn at Glen Alpine. Jane, if you are reading this we will see you in the Spring!!
4.6 on July 21, 2010
Visiting here every couple of months is like going to see a favorite aunt back home.
4.8 on July 10, 2010
The house was just beautiful outside and inside. Very well restored with beautiful antiques. The rooms were so lovely... far more so than the pics online do justice. Fresh flowers in the rooms. Bathrooms were luxurious and well stocked. The bed was awesome. I loved the coverings for the beds... they were beautiful. Jane is a wonderful hostess and a great cook. She was someone we left thinking of as a new friend. The value for the rooms and the service is really great. We will definitely be staying with her again!
5 on July 04, 2010
Great one night stay. The rooms were large and clean. Breakfast was fantastic and Jane was extremely nice. The porch was exquisite. Would definitely go back and highly recommend to others!
5 on May 17, 2010
Visited the Inn for our 25th wedding anniversary to just get away and relax. What a wonderful atmosphere and a fabulous hostess. The Inn is charming and in a quaint little town (reminded us of Mayberry!). Best front porch in the south!! The service and food was out of this world. Jane made us feel special - like we were part of her family. Would recommend highly to anyone who wants to get away from it all, relax and enjoy a quieter, simpler time. 5 stars!!! and then some.
5 on May 16, 2010
We felt like we were staying at a friends' home. Jane had every room looking fresh and neat, breakfast was a fabulous treat, and she did everything to ensure we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back!
5 on May 13, 2010
While this was a business trip and my time at Jane's inn was limited, she made the experience positively marvelous. Completely unexpected for such an out-of-the-way place. Elegant but comfortable furnishings, immaculately clean, and delectable (and decadent) food. It's quite obvious that owner Jane loves her B&B and her guests which really made yet another night on the road all that more pleasant. Highly recommended to anyone passing through or as a destination in itself.
5 on April 20, 2010
My husband and I just left the inn today. We had a wonderful time. Jane is one of the most hospitable people I've ever met. When you stay at Jane's place it is like you are staying with a family member not a stranger. I am a very picky person and like things a certain way. Jane did everything to meet my dietary hypoglycemic issues and even warmed our cream for our coffee each morning. We look forward to visiting her again on our next stay. Thanks for everything Jane you are truly a blessing and say hello to Skyla for us!!
4.8 on December 08, 2009
Extraordinary friendliness, cleanliness and charm. Come if you want to meet people as interesting as you are.
5 on November 23, 2009
I was asked what I wanted for breakfast! That was so nice. I really appreciate the warm reception, relaxed atmosphere, and the great food. Jane was an excellent hostess and I enjoyed talking to Bonnie and Jane at the restoration of the inn.
5 on October 09, 2009
What an amazing view! The home is immaculate and the accommodations outstanding. The Innkeeper, Jane, is a most gracious hostess and the breakfast she serves will kick start your day. Can't wait for the next visit.
5 on October 05, 2009
The owner (Jane) was fantastic and friendly. All necessary details of comfort for our stay were covered. We were given a history of the Inn and a great reccommendation for dinner. Breakfast was fabulous. A very nice Inn and a well done restoration. Would highly reccomend this Inn.
5 on September 10, 2009
My husband and I spent Labor Day Weekend with Jane and her guests and had a ball. We've never felt so at home outside our home. The rooms were clean, the service was outstanding, the food was delicious and the inn keeper was friendly, knowledgeable and a real hostess. I highly recommend this B&B. We are definitely going back!
5 on August 26, 2009
Excellent experience! Very clean and hospitable. Tastefully decorated. Wonderful innkeeper.
5 on August 24, 2009
This B&B far exceeds any B&B experience we have evr had. Clean rooms, wonderful food, and great company!
5 on August 06, 2009
The inn is beautfully appointed yet totally homey and comfortable. Jane is an outstanding hostess full of historical and local information. Breakfast was scrumptious every morning and an event to savor. We definitely will visit again!
5 on July 07, 2009
Jane and silent partner Skyla the poodle and the Inn at Glen Alpine are gems.
5 on June 19, 2009
For a warm and welcoming visit, come to Glen Alpine Inn. the rooms are exquisitely decorated and comfortable. A wrap around porch is inviting. the food is top drawer- tasty and nutritious. I plan to return. A great value.
5 on June 11, 2009
I felt like I was welcomed into a home- just like home away from home with exceptional food! Wonderful people, relaxing. Thank you very much!
4.4 on June 05, 2009
Jane is more of an inn-mother than an innkeeper. She made our stay feel like home and served wonderful breakfast. We can't wait to see her again!
5 on May 19, 2009
Lovely inn- Jane and Skyla welcome you and make you feel like family!
4.8 on May 12, 2009
The Inn at Glen Alpine was a perfect place for our group of friends to gather for a weekend. The AMAZING PORCH is the perfect hang-out spot, and the innkeeper is the most accommodating I've ever encountered. She really made us feel that her house was OUR house for the weekend. It felt like we had rented out an entire big house instead of 4 rooms at a B&B. Breakfast was very well-prepared and plentiful, and the innkeeper included a vegetarian version and a cheese-less version of the breakfasts to accommodate our diverse diets!
5 on March 19, 2009
Wonderful, gracious home with an extended porch. Charming rooms and a delightful innkeeper who served a delicious breakfast. We'll definitely make a return visit!
5 on October 12, 2008
We feel like we made a friend in Jane. The location is terrific for touring the area of Boone and Blowing Rock and is a great value. The home is amazing and the rooms are spacious. The bed is sooo comfortable. The breakfast will have you skipping lunch, very, very good. The best part is Jane, she is just a delightful host!
4.6 on August 25, 2008
We recently stayed at the Inn at Glen Alpine when in Morganton for a friend's wedding. We were initially attracted by the promise of the best porch in Burke County, and we were not disappointed. In addition, the Inn provides a tremendous value for the rate, with an amazing breakfast prepared by the thoughtful innkeeper, Jane. Why stay at a chain hotel when you can stay here, and feel at home?
4.8 on August 19, 2008
A wonderful warm welcome ever. through we were not expected. Possibly the cleanest accommodation i've ever stayed in EVER !!! And I've been all over the world. Well dove and jane thanks !
5 on August 17, 2008
We have stayed at other B&B's and Jane, the innkeeper has truly raised the bar for future expectations. Her knowledge of local dining, cuisines and the area help make our stay a more pleasant experience. Our breakfast and snacks were delicious! The best part of our stay was the memorable porch and company. We look forward to our next stay. Thanks Jane and Skylar for a lovely visit.
5 on August 11, 2008
We spent four wonderful nights and five days at this lovely 1913 B&B. Jane, the innkeeper, is a real gem. It was our 40th anniversary - mimosas and a lovely toast one morning; advice on a super-nice restaurant to celebrate the occasion; evening wine and cheese on the porch; and the most delicious breakfasts I've ever had at a B&B - and each one different. We wanted to go hiking - maps, snacks, water, a pack to carry our 'provisions' and on day 2 when we went up the second mountain, walking sticks to make the climb easier. Helpful advice on where to go, where to eat, where to find just about anything we were looking for was readily available and cheerfully provided. Afternoons and evenings on the porch were so relaxing. I want to go back when I can have more porch time! And Skylar is precious! We are very much looking forward to our next stay. And nowhere else could you walk into a strange restaurant in a strange town and have your B&B hostess welcome you to join her table of friends and neighbors who were out having dinner. It was one more delightful evening in a string of enjoyable days and evenings. We recommend The Inn at Glen Alpine to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, inviting place to stay that is more than a notch above your chain hotels.
4.4 on August 11, 2008
A friend and I stayed at the Inn for 2 nights while looking at properties in the Lake James area. The innkeeper, Jane, was wonderful to us. She helped us find good restaurants, brough us wine on the massive front porch and shared her wonderful little poodle with us so we didn't miss our dogs as much. The food was delicious and enough for 5 people, not 2. I would highly recommend that anyone stay here.
4.8 on July 24, 2008
This B&B exemplified the small town atmosphere with graciousness and southern comfort.
4.6 on July 22, 2008
We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary while we stayed at the Inn. Our host Jane made it truly special She even made us Mimosas, which we shared with some fellow guests on the wonderful front porch. She made us a anniversary toast. I truly appreciated it. Jane is a fabulous cook...no ordinary pancakes or waffles are good enough for her. She made this really yummy apple pancake one day, and a quiche another day. She even has afternoon snacks, besides breakfast. Jane is very accommodating. She made special low carb breakfasts for my husband, for him only. The Inn is very comfortable and cozy. I slept very well there. The rooms are large in this great old house, of which Jane loves to give tours. The rooms are beautifully furnished too. And the large front porch is breezy and relaxing. It is a good place to read, or just rest awhile before you go off for the day. We would definitely go back again.
5 on June 16, 2008
We loved our 4 day visit with Jane and Skylar(Inn puppy extraordinaire). The Magnolia Suite was perfect for my husband and me, and Mom enjoyed the comfort of the Queen Anne Room. Everything was spic-n-span. The setting, the comfort, the delicious breakfast to start our day...every touch and detail was just perfect, especially Jane's wonderful, welcoming smile! We would definitely visit them again, only would like to be able to stay even longer. Spoiled Florida Guests.
5 on June 11, 2008
the setting, the house, the furnishings, the hostess, the breakfast, the general ambiance, are just what i think a b&b should be. what a porch!
4.6 on June 09, 2008
this is an excellent place to stay
5 on June 06, 2008
My husband and I enjoyed our visit and plan to return. Our room, the innkeeper and the house exceeded our expectations.
5 on June 02, 2008
This was the second time we stayed here. It was like visiting a loved "aunt" in a pleasant, lovely home. The food was exceptional - sure beats cereal and a stale pastry!
4.0 on May 25, 2008
This bed and breakfast met our expectations and needs, and then exceeded them! The home was lovely; it was a picture from a world gone by. The home is immaculately clean and well cared for. The attention to detail is still prevalent. The original wood in-laid floors have been restored and maintained so they look like they were just laid yesterday. There is a never ending porch with a view like no other. One morning we just sat there, saying nothing, just enjoying the serenity and peace of the location. Our room was lovely; we stayed in the Spa Suite. Chocolates on the table, sheer curtains that made you think of a Civil War age movie, incredibly tall ceilings, a king bed which was very comfortable, a Jacuzzi tub we had to relax in after hiking the near by 80 ft. waterfall, huge windows, even a towel warmer, made our stay that much more memorable. We wished we had more time to just hang out and enjoy the room. And talking about mornings, the breakfasts are to die for! If you stay there more than a few days, I swear you will gain 100 pounds! The Innkeeper would ask us every night what we wanted the next day for breakfast. Everything was served on china place settings with pressed linens. The best part of the whole thing was, without a doubt, the Innkeeper, Ms. Jane Hoggs. She was so welcoming, helpful, and caring. She helped us plan our days, gave us advice about where to visit and eat, provided menus for us to peruse, told us about fun night life things to do, gave us a tour of the entire home, and just sat and chatted with us. And she genuinely cared about us and if we were having a good time. She was even worried about us when we got stuck in a hail storm and tornado in a nearby city! Overall, this bed and breakfast was impeccable. It was clean, it was quiet, it was relaxing, and it was the perfect break that we needed. This is the way a vacation should be!
4.8 on May 22, 2008
Outstanding stay and would highly recommend

Visiting the Inn at Glen Alpine was a step back in time--a gracious hostess for a comfortable visit in a place which so reminded me of my grandmother's house beside the railroad tracks.
5 on May 08, 2008

We had a lovely weekend stay in a beautiful home that has been carefully restored to maintain the old character. Jane, the innkeeper, was wonderfully pleasant to visit and talk with. As well as providing us plenty of private time.

Staying at the Glen Alpine felt like "coming home" and getting a fabulous home cooked breakfast just the way mom used to make! Jane sets the tone for this relaxed and tranquil environment from the moment you arrive, and is the most inviting and friendliest innkeeper we have ever encountered! She keeps this beautiful 1913 home meticulous yet cozy, with all the modern amenities available at newer inns. I can't wait to return to enjoy the grand porch with majestic views, the comfortable queen-sized beds in spacious rooms, while sharing cordial conversation and a glass of local wine.

Our party of 3 had 2 rooms for 2 nights at the Inn over Thanksgiving. It was all that others have already recorded - spotless, very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and in the friendly care of Jane. She was even very nice to our moody teenager daughter! We were very much at ease coming and going from visits with relatives nearby. Jane also very willingly accommodated our breakfast request for more dietetic fare - although we did taste her apple pancake. Yum. We already have plans to return as we are frequent visitors to the area. We have tried other lodging in the area over the years and this is the nicest by far.

My wife and I were looking for a quiet get-away in the foothills of the NC mountains. This Inn was perfect... on a quiet street near the train tracks to hear the train come by a few times a day. The rooms were very comfortable, but the hospitality that Jane provided made the place warm. Wonderful history in this home built in 1913... We will definitely be back!

We had an outstanding first visit to the Inn at Glen Alpine. Jane is a wonderful lady and terrific host, who had some great suggestions for places to go. She makes a fabulous french toast to boot!! We stayed in the Spa Suite and it was outstanding. After a long day on your feet the 2 person jacuzzi felt awesome.The house is beautiful and has so much character and the wrap around front porch is so relaxing.We had a great experience all the way around.

The hospitality was first rate from the comfortable rooms to the delicious breakfast. The Inn was a grand old house that welcomed us with it's spotless rooms and relaxing atmosphere. Jane was and is the perfect hostess. Full of details on where to go and how to get there. She never let us leave without a bottle of water and a snack. We did a bit of hiking. Our visit was for 4 days, we wish it would have been 4 weeks. Thank you Jane for sharing your home with us.

This was our first trip to North Carolina. We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights and found it to be exeptionally beautiful as well as spotlessly clean. The innkeeper was warm and welcoming and very knowledgable about the area. She also cooked the most delicious breakfasts!! We look forward to visiting again.

This grand inn is located on a beautiful piece of land in a quiet town that provided a perfect, relaxing place to land after long days of furniture shopping. The room was comfortable and breakfast was exceptional. The hospitality was stellar. The innkeeper, Jane, made the experience priceless.

My wife and I were married on 4/7 and we went to the Inn at Glen Alpine for the first night of our Honeymoon. The pictures on the do NOT do the Inn justice. The gorgeous Manor house will take your breath away. We stayed in the Spa Suite, and the 2 person Jacuzzi tub was wonderful. The owner made us an Egg and Cheese Quiche Ham Strudel for breakfast. I cannot recommend this Inn enough!

My dad and I took my mother back to her hometown for her 80th birthday. We chose to stay at The Inn at Glen Alpine. I've never stayed at a B&B before. I must say this was an incredible first experience. The home was warm and comfortable, and the innkeeper was first rate. I hope I have another opportunity to visit this Inn.
