I have stayed at this property several times. Friendly staff and property is very clean. Good price and absolutely the BEST location for walking downtown Blowing Rock. I park my car upon arrival it is not moved until departing for home. 1st choice for convenience and this is my "go to" when visiting Blowing Rock.

My wife and I have been staying Hemlock Inn for more than 10 years. It has always been a great experience. We have come to know the owners and staff over the years and consider them friends. The location is one of the pluses since everything is within walking distance of downtown Blowing Rock. In addition, we have recommended this... More

In the center of town, walking distance to lots of shops and a couple of restaurants. The grounds are gorgeous! The room itself could seem a bit small but it was very cozy and comfortable. The only negative was in regards to the bathroom. While the bathroom itself was very large, the shower stall was super small. The thin man... More

We have stayed at this hotel for over 10 years but this time was terrible. The check in clerk was way off base and the owner had to come in and straighten things out.

I am really confused about your response. You called and cancelled your reservation due to a death in the family. You said another family would be taking your place. So when my husband and David told me what happened I was surprised they were talking about you since you cancelled. I am surprised you are STILL complaining. You got what... More

Hemlock Inn is in the center of town and only a minute away from dining and shopping. Mid-week rates were excellent and the office staff was accommodating. My only recommendation is that they inspect the rooms before check-in to make sure it has been properly cleaned.

We chose this inn based on reviews and a friends suggestion. The best thing about this inn is the location. It is within walking difference of everything in Blowing a Rock. The room leaves a lot to be desired. I made reservations several months ago and had to settle for a full size bed which was very hard. The room... More

My husband and I tend to stay in B&Bs and Inns rather than chain hotels and were looking for both a good location and good value for a quick trip to Blowing Rock.

My family and I stumbled upon this place and decided to stay our last night in Blowing Rock here. First of all, the owners are really nice and accommodating. They are courteous and very professional. The place is very quaint and is right in the heart of downtown Blowing Rock. You could throw a rock and hit multiple stores and... More
