This "home" is HUGE! There are spectacular views of Bass Lake and it is home to several trails and clean restrooms. The home itself is used as an artisan craft shop. House tours are only available on weekends and you must call ahead. For the price though (free), it was well worth our time! Watch out for the wildlife, especially... More

This is the 2nd time we've stopped in because we didn't get to see it all the first time. There is a house full of local crafts with featured crafters working on the porch to watch. There are many different trails to walk on, ride in the carriage, or ride a horse. We got rained out this time so we'll... More

We visited Moses Cone Memorial Park while staying in Blowing Rock for a meeting. A friend had told us what a wonderful place it was to walk and hike. We were amazed at the number of walkers and runners on the lake trail. We did not venture up the hill to hike to the manor, however. The lake was lovely... More

Make sure to stop here. There is a tour of the upstairs with a story about the founder of the area and textile coming to the Smokies. The handcrafts are amazing.

Cone Park is a great place to spend the day, whether your single, have kids or whatever. It's a great place to go where little ones can run around and have a great time. If you're interested in picnicking, be sure to check out Price Park, which is a few miles up the road from Cone Manor. The setup there... More

Moses Cone and his wife built this beautiful estate as a summer home! It is a nice stop on the Parkway, good rest rooms and beautiful views and lots of walking paths. If you like to shop this is a good stop. For us we did not like the concept of the whole mansion being converted or used as a... More

Nice bird listening and easy 5 mile hike through forests and around Bass Lake. Good craft store in mansion. Interesting photo history book about Moses Cone and family. Imagine hike would be spectacular when Rhodedendrons are in bloom

From a easy flat 1 mile walk around beautiful Bass Lake, to a moderate hike to Flat Top Tower with one of the best views in the area, to a tour of the Moses Cone mansion, the Cone Memorial Park has something for everyone to enjoy.
