Directions and Advisories
Are you coming to us from Tennesssee? From Bristol TN?? You’ll see Hwy. 421 on the map. HWY 421 is known at the Striped Snake because of its EXCESSIVE CURVES – Hwy. 421 between Bristol and Mountain City—while a federally number highway—-is rather narrow, very curving and getting known as The Striped Snake. It’s a great road for motorcyclists. It isn’t fun for people driving minivans or sedans. Contrary to GPS, it takes the same amount of time to come to the inn via Damascus, VA or Elizabethton, TN. Hwy. 421 from Bristol is NOT recommended after dark, when you are tired, if you tend to get car sick or in the snow.
If you LOVE curves, take the road! Here’s a link to a terrific video of half of it LINK via motorcycle.
NEW Hwy. 91 BYPASS: This new road may not be on your old map or older GPS. Traffic is automatically routed onto it when southbound on Hwy. 91 coming from Virginia. When it ends, you must turn LEFT to arrive at the 67-421 intersection near the inn, NOT RIGHT as shown on old maps and older directions.
HWY. 321 SOUTH OF BLOWING ROCK – Construction continues to widen this road all the way to Blowing Rock, NC. Some delays possible as construction progresses on Tuesdays or Thursdays noon – 2 pm.. If blasting is required, signs will be posted.
Trivia: Copperhead Road is within 15 min. of the inn. Here’s a video AND the original song: LINK
