About 12 years ago we found Blowing Rock and then after staying at several places we found the Hemlock Inn. When you pull into the office area the beautiful curb appeal reaches out to you: the entire area is beautiful. We have stayed in several different rooms; quaintly decorated, comfortable beds and clean beyond compare. We absolutely love this place.... More

We stayed for one night, we have been to Blowing Rock several times and I always wanted to stay there. The hotel is very cute, the courtyard is nicely decorated, the staff is wonderful, very attentive, service was prompt for anything we asked. The room, a king with a sofa bed was nice, "rustic" but we expected that. It has... More

Thank you for your very nice review of our inn. We hope you had a great time in Blowing Rock. Sorry your tub had draining problems, this just happens sometimes, but can be quickly fixed. Our sheets were all changed this spring and we just purchased more new sheets. I think the problems with the sheet is the bed was... More

The positives: clean, very clean room and bathroom. Service was cordial. Cute, quaint decor. Very homey. The not-so-positives: Walls are thin, so be careful what you do and say, your neighbors may be an inactive participant. Scant amenities. Soap, shampoo, conditioner. NO kleenex, NO hair dryer. For the price -- kleenex is expected. Bed and pillows EXTREMELY firm. Well, lets... More

Sorry you did not enjoy our Inn. Our bedding is all new as of this year including pillow and mattress, sorry you did not enjoy them. You have been our first complaint about the new bedding. The kleenex is located in the night stand drawer. The hair dryers are located in the office, just let us now you need one.... More

Although old, the inn is very clean and comfortable and a very convenient location - a tad bit pricey considering age of property and no breakfast included but I guess location is the offset - since there are no national chains available in downtown Blowing Rock - would definitely recommend the Hemlock as an alternative

Thank you for your kind review of our Inn. All the buildings in Blowing Rock are Historic, including ours. We have updated all our rooms in the past couple of years. Blowing Rock does not allow any chain hotels, or restaurants in down town. That is what makes Blowing Rock so special. If you prefer chain hotels there is a... More

Friendly hospitable place, great people! Loved the beautiful gardens, quiet fountain and peaceful get-away right in the middle of town! Five adorable puppies at play on the grass outside every day too!

Nice and quaint, perfect for a weekend getaway. Great location in downtown Blowing Rock, with quick access to surrounding areas. Beds were comfortable, staff was friendly, walls in rooms a bit thin, overall a great value.

We visited Blowing a Rock for just one evening. Although there were lots of choices of places to stay Hemlock was one of the most reasonable and had no bad reviews anywhere on the Internet sites. You have to understand this is a very old property.....your first clue is the old neon sigh displayed on the porch that says "... More
