This is a beautiful setting just off the Blue Ridge Parkway very close to Stone Mountain and Doughton Parks. The inn itself is perfect with all amenities you could hope for. A peaceful retreat! I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Charming Lodge Near Blue Ridge Parkway!

My husband and I recently visited Glade Valley Inn while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is conveniently located right off the parkway and exceeded our expectations with its great attention to detail. Jim and Margaret were such gracious hosts that made us feel so welcome with lemonade and cookies upon arrival. We especially enjoyed the balcony right outside our room as well as the porch swing and rockers on the large front porch for taking in the beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hunter, the dog, and Pumpkin and Licorice, the cats, added to our enjoyment while relaxing in the outdoor spaces. We also enjoyed a short hike on the property, escorted by Hunter! Breakfast was exceptionally delicious as was the conversation over breakfast with other guests and the innkeepers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glade Valley Inn!

We were only able to stay for one day at the Glade Valley B&B, but we sure wished we could have stayed longer. What a great place for a get away. Rooms & Beds were very nice. Everything was spotless. They also thought of every thing in the bedroom. Jim & Margaret could not have been better hosts. Breakfast was just the best Home cooked food served hot at a beautiful table. I'm telling eveyone about our stay. Thanks for the great stay. Art & Fran Bennett

This was my first visit to Glade Valley. I really enjoyed this bed and breakfast because Mr. and Mrs. Connor are such good people. They are kind, professional and warm - you cannot put a price on that. The bed and breakfast they run is comfortable, beautiful, spotless, calm, clean, quiet and an absolute delight with an incredible breakfast every morning. I also was delightfully surprised at how kind everyone in town was, we traveled to Sparta once a day during our stay and each day we met the nicest people. Thank you so much for a much needed escape from the big city, I will be back to re-energize soon!!
