Welcome to The Hike Inn located in Fontana Dam, North Carolina

Greetings from your hosts Jeff and Nancy Hoch, owners of the original "Hike Inn".

Without the fantastic support of the hiking community and hikers just like you, the HIKE INN would not be here today. We wish to thank all 30,000+ hikers who have stayed with us and helped make our business a success. It seems like such a short time ago we were beginning this adventure. Now, it is slightly overwhelming that we have reached our 22nd year. We take each of your plans and trips seriously and do our best to provide a positive and memorable experience. Today we will put our reputation and professionalism against any service along the trail. We invite you to book a reservation and come help us celebrate our 22nd year serving hikers.

Are you planning your first hike? Your next section? Or need a night off the trail? Welcome to the HIKE INN!

A service that specializes in transportation & accommodations for HIKERS ONLY. We are NOT a hostel.

We offer 4 private rooms with private baths and allow 1 or 2 hikers per room.

Let us provide you with our "4 E's".
EXPERIENCE - Our 22 years & over 30,000 hikers served
ENTHUSIASM - We are hikers only by choice & truly enjoy our "work"
