We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite with a separate bedroom, microwave, frig, and fireplace. There's an adequate breakfast and a nice afternoon wine and cheese time. You can walk into town and visit the lovely gallery shops and restaurants. Staff is friendly and aims to please guests. Very pleasant place to stay.

we booked this as a quick getaway for a fam. member bday. we were pleased we were able to get dog-friendly accommodations on such short notice. the only reason a 4 out of 5 is because i think we weren't given all checkin info we needed on arrival. we were a little disoriented since this was our first visit to...

The Hillwinds is one of three sister properties in Blowing Rock. We choose it over the other two because of its location on Sunset and just a short walk to Main St. The property is older but completely redone with hardwood floors and new fabric. The breakfast is mostly prepackaged fare but is ok. The only negative is the afternoon... More

We stayed in the Davidson Suite so we had a full kitchen, HUGE bathroom with Jacuzzi tub & 2 person shower. It was lovely. We could walk everywhere and the service was great. I can't say anything wrong about the hotel.

Our family, including a preschooler and infant, stayed here for an overnight trip to Blowing Rock. We booked through Priceline and check in and check out were easy. I called ahead and asked for a unit on the end, confirmed details of the stay and wanted to make sure our room was not a pet friendly room. They were able... More

This is much more than a suite. . .it's a full-on apartment, private parking and entrance, full kitchen, living room, King bedroom, huge bath with 2... More

We had purchased reservation vouchers on Groupon, which had a redemption period of one month (from the time we had bought it). Astonishingly, when we called to make a reservation, the receptionist informed us that they were out of rooms for this promotion. Considering that only 5 people had bought it at the time we purchased, I cannot fathom how... More

Pluses: The room was very spacious, king bed and big flat screen TV. Nice duvet. Minuses: Small bath tub. The desk attendant was dodgy about the price, and breakfast was rubbish. Don't wake up believing you will get a proper cooked breakfast or soy milk.

We visited Blowing Rock, NC, but had our 2 year old yellow lab with us. The Hillwinds Inn has 2 very nice pet friendly rooms, and were very accommodating. They had wine and cheese in the late afternoon, and breakfast. The rooms had wi-fi, and a kitchenette. The Inn is within walking distance of the downtown are. It was perfect... More
