We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Gideon Ridge Inn. The staff was very attentive but not overbearing. We stayed in the Blue room and our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom large enough for 2 people without bumping into each other. We were thankful for 2 sinks! We enjoyed one dinner meal at the Inn and it was... More

We were so pleased with our recent stay. The Grandfather Suite was fabulous, the food was extraordinary and the staff, particularly Innkeeper Jackson, could not have been more superb. We found beautiful vistas around every turn of the property and would highly recommend a stay at the Gideon Ridge for anyone who is searching for a serene, pampering High Country... More

Superb views from a hilltop about a mile south of Blowing Rock. Rooms are a combination of "rustic" and "modern" (an old intercom system is still installed on the wall - though not operational), but there is wifi, flatscreen TV, etc. Most rooms are king bed with comfortable mattress & linens. Breakfast is included and there are two choices of... More

We had a lovely stay there. Booked at the last minute, it was a treat to arrive to such a gem. The rooms were superb and the dining room gave me some of the best food I have ever eaten. The staff were lovely, welcoming and attentive.

Gideon Ridge Inn was a private home at one time, now given over to a wonderful B&B. The room rates are competitive but that is where similarity to other places ends. This place is extraordinary. Start with the view. Incomparable long mountain view to the west and east. If you like the Blue Ridge Mountains, this is the view you... More

My wife and I visited Gideon Ridge for two nights recently and from the first moment to the last our experience was wonderful. The Inn Keepers are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make sure that everything you need is attended to. The Inn itself has a very relaxing atmosphere and is definitely a place to unwind... More

When we find a place this good I am reluctant to share, for completely selfish reasons, how good an Inn can actually be. Well, there you have it, it's that good. Gideon Ridge is a a pearl, the facility, staff, service, and food was all exceptional. If you have grown weary of mediocrity and long for "exceptional" then look no... More

This is our 3rd visit to Gideon Ridge Inn and as in the past, this visit was fantastic, too! We love the "Old Master" Suite and enjoyed the relaxing fireplace, private terrace and comfy king size bed. It was my birthday and I was surprised to find strawberries and champagne in our room upon arrival. Dining was superb at the... More

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
