My husband and I loved the Gideon Ridge Inn. We are morning people, so we booked the Sunrise View Suite. It was perfect for us. Unfortunately, the weather was not exactly cooperative (rain and horrible fog) for most of our stay, but we made the best of it. The morning we departed, the sunrise was amazing.

This is the 3rd time we've visited the Gideon Ridge Inn and it is our most favorite B&B in Blowing Rock/Boone area. The rooms are very clean and the atmosphere is relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit:)

This SHOULD be number one. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay in Blowing Rock than this. While NOT a true B & B, I feel this is more of an inn...it was so incredible in every way. From afternoon tea to the friendly staff and turn down service. A big huge WOW. Really every detail is thought of.... More

This was a wonderful get-away...from heat and humidity, from everyday life, from routine chores, etc. The lodge is in a beautiful setting, private with a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge ridges. Luxurious appointments, the feel of a private home, and good service. Also, convenient to downtown Blowing Rock. We stayed in the Colonial Room which was spacious and comfortable;... More

Friendly staff. Afternoon tea sets up interesting conversation with other guests. Sunrise Suite has spectacular views to the east. The Inn is beautiful and relaxing. The covered terrace is a wonderful place for an early evening cocktail or glass of wine with the view through the trees to the distant mountains.

The building and the view from the building are outstanding. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The living room is comfortable and they serve tea there. Sitting on the porch and viewing the mountains is heavenly. It is easy to get to downtown Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge parkway from the Gideon. The service while fine was not... More

Came here to get away from work for a few days. Great location very close to Blowing Rock. The inn is also listed on Select Registry (that should tell you something). Plan on staying often when business travel calls for visits to NC.

We really loved our stay at Gideon Inn. Quiet and tranquil but close to town. The rooms are rustic but extremely comfortable and clean. Our stay was exactly what we were looking for! We would highly recommend Gideon Inn to everyone who wants a getaway from the hustle and bustle!
