A Small Bed & Breakfast for Outdoor Enthusiasts
Roanoke Boutique Hotel was created from a love for Roanoke and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We’re located in Greater Downtown Roanoke, a short drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, Carvin’s Cove bike trail system, and the Roanoke River Greenway. The c.a. 1890 Italianate home, known as the A.L. Gorley House, is in the Historic District of Roanoke, a lovely walkable neighborhood cherished by historic home lovers. We love the outdoors, so we can connect you to the best of the outdoor and downtown scene. We are close enough to downtown to walk to restaurants and shops but far enough away for a quiet night's sleep.
Free parking located just outside our door makes unloading and car access a breeze. We have on-street and off-street parking.
Come visit the Heart of the Blue Ridge and hike or bike our trails, play in our rivers and climb our mountains!
