Little Switzerland Motorcycle Rentals at Skyline Village Inn

​For reservations call Mike Thrift at 828 765 9394

At Skyline Village Inn, we specialize in Dual Sport Motorcycle Rentals. The reason for this is simple: Many visitors ride here on their cruisers and sport bikes that they do not want to take off road or off pavement. The surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains happen to be one of the best spots in the world for off pavement riding and we want to provide access to our customers. 

The Dual Sports can travel the area roads as well. If someone in your group of riders has a mechanical problem they have options: They can use our facilities to repair the bike if it is a minor problem. If the problem requires a shop and mechanic we can help you transport the bike because we have a bike trailer. then you don't have to be grounded while it is being repaired because you can rent a bike from us!

Wilson Creek Recreation Area: Milepost 308 on the Parkway at Roseboro Rd.

about us

Established in 1942, Skyline Village Inn was built by John Greer on Moonshine money. In 2004 Mike & Lynn Thrift bought the Skyline and started refurbishing and rebuilding. The Skyline is becoming one of the must stops on the Blue Ridge Parkway for travelers, especially for motorcyclists. The reason is the one stop shop for lodging, meals and now for Motorcycle support and contingency planning for individuals and groups.
