While we were on our way there we got a phone call from someone in the office asking if we wanted to stay at the Village Inn since we were the only guests that were booked for the Hillwinds Inn. We declined because we were already looking forward to staying at the Hillwinds Inn. The room was lovely, it was... More

This is an adorable little cluster of 'Inns' within the charming little town of Blowing Rock, NC. A bit pricey, but still very quaint and adorable...just a block from the town so within walking distance (which we did) to the shops and restaurants. Two of these Inns (including this one) are PET-FRIENDLY and we saw many other people there with... More

Everything was spotless. There was a glitch in our reservation so we were upgraded to a larger suite. It was beautiful & the gas fireplace was heavenly. The inn is within walking distance to downtown. We didn't make it to breakfast so no review there. I would certainly stay again.

Room just adequate , over priced for accommodation. Parking terrible, trees near cottage need to be trimmed, scratch pickup truck. Good location to Main Street. Bathroom very small. Nothing to write home about. Probably wouldn't stay again.

We stayed 2 nights at Hillwinds Inn. The room was really nice - two double beds. There was also a high table and 2 chairs in a small alcove - it added more space to the room and provided a place for setting up cheese and crackers. Outside there were 2 rocking chairs. Our room was on the corner so... More

We made a last minute trip for one night- up to see Blowing Rock & Grandfather Mountain--we first drive by and went to Village Inn-, they were all booked and kindly called to see if Hillwinds had a room- 1 left! This is a sister property just around the corner. What a surprise! It is an older property (gave me... More

We have been staying at the Hillwinds Inn every time we are in Blowing Rock (at least one time a year) for at least 25 years. Always clean, quiet. They remodel the rooms often, updating furniture and other items. Large outdoor sitting area and Troutman rockers (very comfortable) outside every room. Large continental breakfast - many choices. My husband had... More

We travelled the Blue Ridge Parkway for days and decided to stop in Blowing Rock. We went to several other places before stumbling upon the Village Inn. We were showed a suite and were instantly charmed. The suite had so many amenities that are not usually found. Full size kitchen with wine chiller, nice living room, bedroom, and luxurious bathroom.... More

I can't fault this place, from the location, just a 2 minute walk to Main St, to the friendly staff and impeccably clean rooms. Very comfortable beds with down comforters. Wine and snacks offered at 5pm, and there is a gazebo where we took our breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff; one guest asked if there was any coffee left (about 4pm)... More
