Formerly known as the Pine Bridge Inn, the Blue Ridge Boutique will be a 34 room boutique hotel connected to downtown Spruce Pine by the walking bridge over the Toe River. The first floor of the hotel will feature a restaurant and bar, as well as a meeting space and library room. The second and third floors will house guests in theme based rooms highlighting area natural attractions. Each room will be named for a local natural area in the three county region, such as the Mt. Mitchell Room, Linville Falls Room, and Roan Mountain Room. It will serve as a marketing tool to help guests find things to do and places to visit while they stay in the area.
With the financial support of both the town of Spruce Pine and Mitchell County, the infrastructure of the remodel is nearing completion as a new roof, electrical system, plumbing and sprinkler system are installed. Mayland Community College is in the design phase for the restaurant and bar and will begin remodeling the rooms in 2020. The estimated time for opening the doors is in 2021.
There are numerous naming opportunities with this project! For additional information please contact the Mayland Community College Foundation at 828-766-1275
