The Best of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Since 2010 has been helping travelers find the best places to visit in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

After spending decades living in the Blue Ridge Mountains Steve Wike began sharing this beauty through a 130+ page coffee table book, Blue Ridge Travel Guide. Over 40,000 copies have been placed in guest rooms of the finest bed & breakfasts, resorts and cabins so travelers can get a glimpse of the vast, breathtaking creation of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This beautiful guide is also available to travelers. Click here if you would like to purchase one.

Enjoying the Beauty & Adventure

Steve Wike passed the torch to me (his son) in 2017 and we hope to continue sharing the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains with travelers. Amy, my wife, and I love both the quietness and strength that the Blue Ridge Mountains brings to our hearts. And we love to find that hidden place to stay that most people don’t already know about. Our hope is that when you book lodging in the Blue Ridge Mountains you will find that special spot and enjoy the same restorative rest.

In addition to rest, we also believe every soul has a deep need for adventure and the Blue Ridge Mountains are ready to deliver! I grew up backpacking and mountain biking in southwest Virginia. Our kids love snow skiing and riding zip lines. And 20 years after buying my first Harley Davidson, I am still fortunate to be able to join my dad and brothers for an occasional ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are full of ways to rest and enjoy adventure and we hope will help connect travelers with the best places to eat, sleep and experience.

Connecting Travelers with Great Businesses

In addition to helping travelers, one of our great privileges at is shining a light on great businesses. With so many options for lodging, food and activities in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a small business can get overlooked by their competitors who have big marketing budgets. But we want to help.  

Working with small businesses is all we’ve ever known. I grew up working for my dad’s small business and co-founded my first publishing company in 2001. Later, in 2005 I had the great joy of helping Amy launch a greeting card company, We’ve sold millions of cards and experienced lots of highs and lows. We learned that managing a small business is very rewarding and also a lot of hard work. It requires wearing multiple hats and not all of those roles come naturally. Online marketing can be especially hard and confusing because it is constantly evolving. Therefore we're striving to make travel marketing simple and affordable on

Our goal is to help you stand out from the pack so travelers will choose your business. Thousands of travelers rely on each month to find the best places to visit throughout the moutains of Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. There are multiple ways to get noticed but the best place to start is by adding your organziation to our directory. If you’re looking more exposure, contact us so we can learn more about your company and help you find ways to reach even more travelers.

Whether you’re the traveler or business, we want to help. So if there is anything we can do, please let us know.
