great trails

The walking trails are very nice. The folk art inside the mansion is worth browsing. It's a pleasant drive up here on the Parkway.

We walked the ground. I loved looking at the old wagons and things in the barn. We had no problems walking around with our daughter in her stroller.

We have visited here several times and enjoyed every time we came. We even enjoyed it so much that when we got married years ago we took our engagement pictures here. It is definitely worth a visit and would recommend taking the horseback tour.

The trail around the lake is a great place for a walk. The path is well maintained and dog friendly. A few ducks were also swimming around.

We visited twice on our trip. My daughter loved it because of the Mandie movie series. My son loved it because of the natural trails and the woods. My wife loved the beautiful landscape and views. I loved everything, including a feel of stepping back in time. There are plenty of areas to walk on carriage trails and even some... More

It was a very nice place to visit with an awesome view of the mountains. The house was oh so big and you couldn't image how wonderful it must have been to live here.

This place is a must see. The mansion and the views are beautiful. The crafts inside are very nice to shop and see. Don't forget to make your way down the trails to the beautiful lake. We make sure we always stop here while we are visiting Boone or Blowing Rock. Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, near Blowing Rock, North... More

This place is amazing! The house tour is incredible and the views are breathtaking. The bottom floor offers beautiful crafts from nearby areas. This is a must if you visit Boone. We have been twice and I want to go again.

We love to bring family to the Visitor Center to see local crafts, the view to Bass Lake & walk on the trails. You might be lucky to see an artisan on the front porch who will gladly explain how they create their pieces. There is a horse trail nearby, and various walking trails. One paved trail goes down to... More
