Good place to visit

I love going here to look at nature and walk around the house. We usually go inside to look at the displays. It's great for an afternoon and great for families.

This place was packed when hubby and I pulled in. We parked on the road and strolled down a small incline to a gravel walk that led to the old barn and the house. You can't enter the barn but it's nice for pictures. The house needs some painting and it's full of local crafts people selling their wares. There... More

Beautiful views and a neat part of history. A lot of carriage paths to hike or run if you would like. Nice selective of crafts / artists work in the house. Not as much historical information as I was expecting around the site. Parking is also limited so on a busy weekend it would be tough to find a spot.... More

Such a great spot to visit right off the parkway. The craft center and home were fun to view and read up on history. Grounds and walking trails were lovely.

Beautiful Lake. Parking can be difficult at times. Did some fishing but not much was biting and what we did catch was very small. Kids still loved being at the Lake and feeding the ducks.

Stopped here for the beautiful views and artists demos. Not too many working that day but the 2 there were very informative and friendly. Take the time to browse...beautiful merchandise.

Wonderful pit stop on the BlueRidge Parkway. They have local artists doing demonstrations (on certain days), along with a unique gift shop. Restrooms are clean and have an old carriage on display right next to them. It appears as though the carriage has stopped for the night.

Amazing views of the mountains, as well as the horses that go by. We took chairs and sat and watched, read, and watched some more. Lots of trails for riding and/or walking.

This was our favorite park! We hiked several others but they were somewhat difficult for us Floridians! Too slippery and steep at some others but still beautiful. This park is the one to get your daily exercise. Start with a walk around Bass Lake (several parking areas near the entrance on the main road just outside Blowing Rock), then head... More

The crafts shop, which is located in the Moses cone manor house is one of 6 shops of the southern highland craft guild. The guild was invited into the manor house in 1951 by The National Park Service in order to maintain the home. As a result the national park and the southern highland craft guild have partnered to keep... More
