I hiked about 7 fairly easy miles. Great place to take the family, both short and very long hikes available. Hope to be back when the rhododendrum bloom, they're everywhere. I parked at the manor and the bathrooms were closed, none available at the manor for public use.

I rode the parkway and needed a place to relax and refuel. Cone park is picturesque as a mountain park should be. Gives you a good feeling of how things might have been when the building was first constructed. Nearby trout lake is a quick walk down one of several paths. It is a nice stop if you are already...

I often stop by Moses Cone Memorial Park to simply sit on the porch and soak in the expansive view, relax, and dream a little (wouldn't it be wonderful to live here type of dreaming). Inside the historic home you will find an interesting assortment of goods made by local artisans - everything from pottery to paintings, weaving to wall... More

There are two main attractions in Blowing Rock, NC. The Blowing Rock itself and this place. It is a palace with a beautiful view. Don't miss it on your trip.

This place is beautiful. The tiles and details of the fireplaces are amazing. The staff is very friendly and oh my the views. There's no words to describe the beauty of the natural surroundings. I just cannot believe someone actually had the chance to live here and see that everyday.

My wife, daughter and I stopped here first on a Saturday at the end of March. It was chilly but beautiful. It was later in the day and the shop was closed but you can still walk up on the porch and around the property. There is plenty of parking unless it is really busy. We came back the next... More

This is a must stop place on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is amazing and if you are a hiker there are many trails to walk.

This is a great place to go hiking on groomed trails. They have over 28 miles for easy to medium hard to hike or riding your horses through. From wildlife and livestock to view. The house is a quick stop to see. The place is more for walking.

When we stopped in the Blowing Rock Visitor's Center they told us about this home so we pulled off when we saw the signs. The former owner of this home invented denim - thank you Moses :-) What a beautiful location - especially during Fall. We took a little walk along the property and just marveled at the view from...
