Gideon Ridge Inn is exactly what one imagines a great Inn to be from the warm welcome to the great send off. We loved every minute of our stay. No amenity has been ignored from the Frette robes to the drinks/wine coolers in the rooms. I was impressed with the degree of comfort provided. Books and current magazines and videos... More

We traveled to Blowing Rock hoping for a cozy, wintry Valentine weekend at Gideon Ridge. That is exactly what we got! This was our third visit to the Inn and it is simply delightful! The staff accommodates your every need. We were not able to get to our dinner site on Saturday evening due to the snowy, blustery conditions. No... More

I must RAVE - the facilities, amenities, ambience, and especially the service were outstanding. The staff was most accommodating and friendly - special kudos to Jackson. Unfortunately we had to return unexpectedly - consequently forced to cancel our dinner reservations but we will try again as soon as possible and that won't be soon enough. This is one fabulous establishment.

This was our 5th stay at Gideon Ridge and our 5th different room. As always, our stay was absolutely perfect: the room, the inn, the staff, the food, etc. Gideon Ridge is without question our number one choice (and only choice if available) when traveling to the Blowing Rock/ Boone/ Grandfather/ Linville area. We are now in the planning stages... More

Recommended by family, Gideon Ridge Inn was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our room was large and beautifully furnished, the bed was luxurious and the tub was gigantic. Very comfortable sitting area with gas-log fireplace (easy to use). Private patio and private entrnace. Views from the large front porch are wonderful. Great service provided, including afternoon tea.

This was our first visit to Gideon. We had 2 rooms, The Blue Room and Grandfather View Suite. Both are delightful, with quaint, rustic appointments and nice views. Both had a fireplace and both had good bathrooms. The daily breakfast was always very tasty, and the staff serving it was wonderful. They are very friendly and go out of their... More

This was our 1 year anniversary trip; we really wanted it to be very special. We stayed in the Sunrise Suite. Upon arriving the check-in was quick and flawless; we were shown to our suite, and we were taken aback by the beauty and brilliance of the view; the suite was PERFECT...a comfortable living area with a gas stove and...

Gideon Ridge consistently provides a great escape and wonderful time in the mountains. Service is great and welcoming. The rooms are all very nicely appointed. Breakfasts and morning coffee are always a great way to start each day. The little touches of stocking the fridge with water, soft drinks, and creme go a long way. Views from the Inn are... More

Intimate, cozy, casual yet upscale- this is a wonderful getaway. Each room is unique- with a range of sizes and prices. While charm is the byword, the bathrooms are updated and have fun tub and shower options. Most rooms boast a fireplace and many, a private porch. This is a place to linger. Breakfast is included and it's quite good.... More

We are frequent visitors to Western NC and have stayed in Blowing Rock/Boone several times a year for years. We finally discovered The Gideon Ridge Inn and have now stayed in the Victorian and Old Master guest rooms. Each room of this small Inn is unique and attractive, and each has it's own character. The rooms are well,kept, the staff... More
