The Alleghany Inn in Sparta, North Carolina reminds me of the old roadside inns from the 60's. The rooms actually make you feel right at home. Corissa helped us check in when we arrived for a two day stay July 13, 2010. John Kilmartin, the manager also came out to meet us. He knows all the good places to check out while visiting Sparta.
There are a variety of rooms at the Alleghany Inn. This year we stayed in a room with one queen bed. Last year our room had two double beds. You have your choice of rooms with a king bed, a queen bed, two queen beds or two double beds. There also is a two room apartment with a full kitchen with a gas grill outside on the patio. All rooms have a microwave oven, a refrigerator and a wireless internet connection.
Their website is at: http://www.alleghanyinn.com/ where you can check out the different types of rooms at different prices. If you book your room online there is a discount. Also many of the local attractions and restaurants are listed. From pottery and arts & crafts to golf, fishing and wineries... there is so much to see and do in this area.
The Alleghany Inn is truly our home away from home. right now the room rates range from $62.95 to $89.95 with smoking and non-smoking rooms available. My husband is a pipe smoker, so the smoking room option is most welcome. And with the International Pipes & Accessories factory on the edge of town, where they machine craft Dr Grabow pipes, being able to smoke your new pipes in your hotel room is welcome indeed.
I plan to check out the other types of rooms the next time I visit Sparta. I wish we could stay a week... there is so much to see and do in and around Sparta. I'm coming back as often as I can.
