Hotel at a Glance: Archer's Mountain Inn

This inn’s two lodges and collection of private cabins are set amid the rolling green hillsides of Beech Mountain, an ideal location for mountain biking, hiking, or just taking in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain scenery. The estate feels like a home away from home, which is fairly appropriate: it was once the personal residence of renowned college football coach Paul Dietzel.

  • Onsite dining: Jackalope’s View serves escargot, jumbo-lump crab cakes, and triple-sausage-stuffed chicken amid floor-to-ceiling mountain vistas.
  • Nifty in-room amenities: Each room has a stone fireplace; Hawk’s View Lodge rooms have sitting areas and large porches with mountain views.
  • Cast out: Fish for trout at Grandfather Trout Farm, which provides complimentary bait, tackle, and rods.
  • Mountain adventure: Carpeted in deep-green woodlands, the surrounding mountains make for a scenic hike with several waterfalls scattered throughout.
