We stayed at the Cliff Dwellers Inn in November. When we arrived it was unusually cold with blowing snow and a strong wind. John took us to our room. He had already turned on the lights and heat. The room was attractively decorated and cozy. Heat adjustments worked well and we were warm in spite of the cold weather. Also... More

Came up to cut the Christmas Tree as we have for the past 17 years...decided to stay in Blowing Rock instead of Boone. The Cliff Dwellers was the best place we have stayed in all of these years! Room was great. View was beautiful! Tori and John were full of local knowledge and made our stay perfect. Would recommend Cliff... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary and wanted to have a romantic getaway in the NC mountains. Since we have been to Cliff Dwellers before with our kids, we knew that we wanted to stay here again. First, the customer service is unsurpassed. John was extremely accommodating and made sure our stay was as pleasant... More

What a great place to stay in Blowing Rock! Rhonda and her son Seth were great-they gave great recommendations for dinner and things to do and see while visiting here. The room was very clean and spacious. More like a bed and breakfast than an inn!! We will be back for sure!!

My sister and I found Cliff Dwellers a relaxed hilltop clean and comfortable stay. Plenty of room, did not feel like a hotel, but rather a home stay. Very clean, bed slept great, secure, nice to be able to have heavy continental breakfast with good coffee each morning with a beautiful view. Good location away from bustle of downtown, yet... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 15-year wedding anniversary at Cliff Dwellers Inn. The view was wonderful (except for road construction but that is not the hotel's fault). It is walking distance into Blowing Rock and to Tanger if you are up for walking. Otherwise, a short drive. The rooms were clean, the view as great. Our loft bedroom was... More

My husband and I stayed over one night in September on our sightseeing tour of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a lovely, comfortable, homey place to stay. The room was large, immaculate, and well decorated. Little touches like complimentary bottled water, and extra cosmetic items in the bathroom added to our comfort. The complimentary breakfast was very generous and... More

Wish there was a view from family suite 105! Room was spacious but very damp feeling and had an unpleasant wet odor. Woman at the desk told me it was due to being in the South and because it was built in the 1960's. My house was built in the 1920's in the very humid climes of Maryland and does... More

I am sorry that you felt the need to write a review about the lack of a view when you booked online a room that specifically states it doesn't have a view. The vast majority of our rooms have wonderful views so why book one that doesn't and then complain about it???? As far as the "damp" feel to the... More
