This 1913 Country Manor turned Bed & Breakfast offers four luxurious guest rooms including two suites, spacious and elegant common rooms, a 'green' environment, the best porch in Burke County and unbeatable outdoor event space. In November 2014 your new hosts, Teresa and Craig Sellman, purchased the Inn. After 5 months of renovation (which we like to call ‘putting red lipstick on the pretty lady’, as the Inn was already so beautiful), the Inn At Glen Alpine has opened its doors once again. Conveniently located 3 miles off Interstate 40, the Inn At Glen Alpine is only 50 miles east of Asheville, 25 miles west of Hickory and 30 minutes to the entrance of the famous Blue Ridge Parkway. A short 6 miles to the east finds you in the historic town of Morganton, the Burke County seat.

Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills, South Mountain, Grandfather Mountain and adjacent to the southeast corner of Pisgah National Forest, you will experience all the best there is to offer from outdoor activity to nearby historic towns in the heart of Western North Carolina. A short drive brings you to many amazing local wineries and breweries (Lake James Winery is within walking distance!), and just 10 minutes from the Inn you will find Lake James State Park which was voted the best state park in North Carolina in 2014.

Breakfast at the Inn is a feast not soon to be forgotten! We specialize in locally sourced ingredients and allergy friendly alternatives to all your breakfast favorites, especially gluten free. With the new addition of a commercial kitchen, we proudly offer a la carte meals that can be served in your room, in the beautiful dining room, on the porch or taken to go as you embark on your outdoor adventures. The Inn At Glen Alpine is also a Premier Event Site in Burke County with an outdoor pavilion available for all your celebration needs. With a 200+ space parking field, events of all types can be held from weddings and reunions to festivals and corporate events.

The Inn at Glen Alpine is awesome! The owners, Teresa and Craig Sellman, make sure that every guest is comfortable and wants for nothing. They are so warm and friendly; you'll love enjoying a glass of wine with them on the porch. Breakfast is a real treat; all delicious and fresh ingredients. The rooms are beautifully appointed and so inviting. There is much to do in the area whether it's visiting wineries, shops, galleries, restaurants, hiking or fishing. You will love it all. We did! We'll be back again and again.

Lots of B & B's have good food, and/or nice rooms, and/or a charming atmosphere, and/or a fun, funny, congenial hostess, but The Inn at Glen Alpine had it all. The owner, Jane, has a passion about the inn and the guests - it was evident from our greeting to our good-bye. She is someone you would like to have for a best friend. Her life's stories are fascinating - and the wine and nibbles were pretty good, too! The location was convenient to Morganton, Lake James and only 30 minutes from Black Mountain - neat place - and 45 from Asheville. The town and the inn is a step back in time - it will not disappoint.

Innkeeper Jane continues to amaze after several visits to Glen Alpine. She goes way beyond expectations meeting my celiac diet needs and providing a calm, relaxing atmosphere for guests. The Lake James winery just across the way from the Inn is an extra delight not to be missed.

This house is a beutiful 1913 Victorian, full of charm and a step back in time. The innkeeper, Jane, was as warm and as gracious as they come. We had the Queen Anne room: an outstanding view of the South Mountains, a huge room with an extremely comfortable queen poster bed and private bathroom. All the details and then some. Jane prepared a delicious and bountiful breakfast. Close to many Western NC Vineyards, and Jane can arrange vineyard tours.

We stayed in the Magnolia Suite. The bed was so comfortable and the room had every comfort and convenience. The veranda is magnificent as is the entire mansion - roomy and inviting. Our breakfasts were scrumptious and cooked to order. Jane is laid back and friendly and makes you feel at home immediately. She is helpful and accommodating. We hope to be back again and again!

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful inn. Rocking chairs on the huge front porch, sipping a glass of wine or a cool soda, delicious breakfast at the time we like....wonderful. Jane, the innkeeper, just has a knack for making her guests feel at home while knowing when they would like privacy. We plan to visit again soon, and frequently. This inn is located near lots of things to do: a number of wineries, South Mountain State Park, minor league baseball's Hickory Crawdads, Lake James, Linville Falls, and lots more. Just ask Jane!

The Inn at Glen Alpine and the hospitality of Jane, its inn keeper, far exceeded our expectations. The Inn is a lovely,solid, 100-year old house with large airy rooms. The old-world charm doesn't sacrifice any of the conveniences and amenties you want when you get away to relax. The comfortable porch looks out onto well-kept grounds and Jane's "green". All is set in a quiet, peaceful community and a gentle countryside. Jane is cheerful and hospitable and takes the word "guests" seriously. She cooks a banquet of a breakfast. The winery in the old mill is only a step away. A wonderful stay, and we can't wait to go back.

If you had a 10 star rating I would have clicked that! Our stay was outstanding. The innkeeper obviously loves the committment she has made to host this inn. Her smile lights up the place and she takes great pride in its decor and ambience. She's good company, knowledgeable about lots of things and makes interesting conversation without being intrusive. Not to mention, she is an outstanding chef. Breakfast was sumptuous, plentiful and delicious--as was her grace in serving it.
