beautiful - shopping expensive

the scenery is breathtaking. The crafts are a bit expensive. There are rest rooms in a small barn on the side of the property.

Moses Cone Manor is a delightful stopping off place if you are on or near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Several walking trails, both long and short along with many wonderful views/vistas. Great place to take photographs...the "Manor" is wonderful.

Stopped here to see the home and were amazed at all the art items on display and for purchase. Miles of carriage trails that were cut by Mr. Cone before his death. Beautiful home and work a trip to see it. Only the main floor and porch is open but it is still work a stop. Plan on an hour... More

The views here are wonderful and there are trails of many lengths and levels of difficulty for walking. The store carries great regional crafts. The house tours were full so we did not get to experience that, but heard from others that they found it interesting.

It's worth driving there to see the house itself, and its interior, AND to see the long-range mountain view from the porch. Oh! And to sit on all the old timey rockers on the porch and watch the mountains, and the horses being ridden by. That is great. But I just can't accept the use of the inside. It's just... More

My family and I enjoyed about an hour here today. The craft house was lovely and my 2 year old loved the trails. We did the .7 one right by the house. Gorgeous views! Definately stop here!

We love walking here! We done almost all of the trails and I can just imagine Mr and Mrs. Come on one of their carriage rides through the property. Just breathtaking and it's free!

The Manor has an interesting history and the quality of craftsmanship is amazing considering how long ago it was built. The gift shop is full of beautiful local crafts. We were fortunate enough to observe a potter throwing some pieces. He was wonderful and engaging, his work flawless. We finished up with a walk around Bass Lake. It was calm,... More

We had fun perusing the widely varied and all very well made items in the store. It featured wood, fabric, ceramics, leather, glass and more. There is also a Blue Ridge Parkway store that has nice souvenirs and maps. An artist was working on the porch and a ranger was manning a wildlife display. The view is lovely and short... More
