The room and amenities were excellent. Our meal at the restaurant was excellent and therein lies the problem. The Inn takes in outside guests for dinner and doesn't have the parking space to handle the additional guests. If you leave the property to have dinner in Blowing Rock, you often come back and can't find a place to park. On... More

We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary, and what a special stay it was. From our beautiful room with champagne chilling and chocolate covered strawberries to the scrumptious breakfast the next morning, we were catered to with such attention. And yet we were also give privacy as we enjoyed our beautiful view on the veranda during the afternoon tea with someone... More

An over-the-top stay at GR was highligh to a three day retreat in the cool mountains of Blowing Rock. It's hard to say what was best.....the view, the gardens, the relaxing porch, the service, breakfast....all were excellent and exceeded our expectations.

A quiet and romanctic inn for couples. We sat on the beautiful terrace to watch the open views of the surrounding mountains. Terrace was also perfect for outdoor dining. Breakfast was delicious. Downtown Blowing Rock was just a 3 minute drive from inn but you felt like you were miles away due to the inn's great location. Staff was always... More

This was my third stay at Gideon Ridge and, as previously, the accomodations were exceeded only by the scenery and the food. This time I was able to enjoy afternoon tea overlooking the mountain view. My only regret was that I didn't book an entire week there.

When I sold my mountain house in Spruce Pine NC, I set out to find my new mountain house--the place we would return to over and over again. Gideon Ridge Inn is that place. Over the years we have stayed in many of the 9 unique and special rooms--- Sunrise Suite, Grandfather View, the Blue Room, Victorian, Old Master's. Every... More
