The hotels and accommodations on the Blue Ridge Parkway provide a relaxing place to rest when traveling on the Parkway, the most visited unit in the National Park System and "America's Favorite Drive." The Parkway winds through the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge and our region offers a variety of hotels, B&Bs, resorts, cabins, and campgrounds within close proximity to this breathtakingly scenic road.
The 469-mile route winds its way through the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia and the Roanoke Valley features eight different entry points - including an entrance that is only 10 minutes from Downtown Roanoke.
As a result of heavy rains and landslides, the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia's Blue Ridge is currently closed from Milepost 115.5 to Milepost 135.9 due to multiple road hazards (Milepost 119.7 and Milepost 127.9).
We've created a special Blue Ridge Parkway Detour Route for information about things to do in the area and recommended directions for accessing the Parkway around these closures. Parkway Detour Info >
