Gift shop is full of wonderful crafts, a tad overpriced. Sales clerks helpful. Separate souvenir shop attendant was not pleasant. Still worth a visit!

Bass Lake out of Blowing Rock Highway 221 was a special place to walk around.....We took a scenic walk every day...saw ducks, swans, deer, beaver and beautiful Rhododendron along our pathway. Loved visiting the lovely frescoes done by local artist Ben Long,,,Church of the Holy Trinity and St.Mary's...also took in the Shops in Blowing Rock a quaint village!...Wonderful Tanger Outlets...

This is a beautiful historic house with outstanding views and walking trails. The real surprise was the amount of crafts and artwork that was available for purchase. This is really worth the stop.

Beautiful old mansion converted into a large gift shop with locally crafted items of various price ranges. Well worth the visit for some really nice things. Great view from the front porch. Located with easy access on and off the Blue Ridge Pkwy and very near to Blowing Rock, NC.

I always enjoy visiting Moses Cone. The crafts produced by Southern Highlands Craft Guild members are of very high quality. The old home that houses the craft store is beautiful, as is the view from the front porch.

This park is one of the more amazing stops along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The grounds include the original manor house and the rangers conduct scheduled tours. We were not able to take the tour so be sure to check the schedule. There are vast trails for walking and horseback riding and there are some beautiful views.
