The Pinebridge Inn was established in 1982 and was formerly the old Harris School. Originally built in the early 1920′s, the school was at one time or another the elementary, middle, and high school for Spruce Pine, N.C. In the 1980′s the building was remolded to function as an Inn. Since that time The Pinebridge Inn has served hundreds of guests visiting the beautiful mountain country of Western North Carolina. We are just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Spruce Pine. Directly below the Inn is the wonderful Riverside Park which offers a great walking/jogging path along the river, a large playground for children, several covered areas for get-togethers, and last but not least of all the Toe River which boasts of fantastic trout fishing. In downtown Spruce Pine you find several great shops, and fantastic restaurants with diverse menu options. Enjoy your stay in the mineral city.
