Every time I visit Blowing Rock, I stop at Moses Cone Manor house to shop the various crafts. They have an outstanding collection of textiles, wood carvings and pottery. It should be a must stop for anyone on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Beautiful scenery, trails for all ages and experience. This is a nice stopping point off of the blueridge parkway. The walking trails are loads of fun for the whole family. Also horseback riding trails.

It was very beautiful even though there were severe rain storms the night before! Fog was settling over the mountains and it was very picturesque!

We really enjoyed our visit to Cone Memorial Park and craft center. The grounds were incredibly beautiful with the fall foliage reaching its peak. There are several options for walks or hiking -- something for all levels of fitness and ages. The park ranger was very knowledgeable about the history of the mansion and the Cone family. Worth the trip... More

Large state park within the Blue Ridge. Former mansion of denim magnate Moses Cone - now a very nice local artists craft shop. Lots of hiking trails. A pleasant place to spend a couple of hours.

Moses Cone built trout lakes on the property. Hiking trails along the lakes provide stunning views of the Manor. The hike to the burial grounds run through a forest out onto a open pasture. Wild flowers are everywhere and are truly breathtaking. The manor is nice and offers a gift shop. It tends to be a tourist trap of goods... More

Park your car in the Bass Lake parking lot at the bottom of the hill. Take the wide carriage path half way around the lake and follow the signs up to the Moses H. Cone home and Craft Center. It's an uphill path but a beautiful walk with a grand vista when you reach the porch of the craft center.... More

We just had enough time to tour the house. Really beautiful and an amazing view is seen from its porch. Got interesting history from the people in the building. Short but sweet visit. Tours were only given on weekends so we couldn't take advantage of them. I heard the grounds, walks, were great but couldn't do them this trip. I'd... More
