We have stayed at Gideon Ridge numerous times in the past nearly 20 years, and always make it a destination point on our end -to- end drives down the Blue Ridge Parkway. In June, our daughter surprised us with a room for our anniversary and our summer birthdays, and a gift certificate for dinner … once again, it was AMAZING!!... More

I stayed at Gideon Ridge Inn for one night with my husband. The accommodations, service, dinner were all spectacular. Our room had a fireplace, jacuzzi, and a very comfortable bed!! We ate dinner at the Inn, that was awesome as well. We actually were able to watch a young man walk his girlfriend down to one of the gardens near... More

Gideon Ridge Inn has been a favorite destination of mine for 20 years. My choice of the Cedar Cottage was perfect for a week of fun and relaxation, Cool temperatures and blue skies were the order of the week. Dinner at the Inn on Thursday was excellent. The views are beautiful. The Inn veranda is inviting for a glass of... More

Stopped in for a brief respite after spending the day at Grandfather Mountain. Had reserved one of the last 2 rooms available ahead of the 4th of July weekend and was pleasantly surprised. Beautiful room, spacious, lots of light and nice views from all windows (Blue room). Before settling in, Amanda showed us the layout and David brought us a... More

Best B&B we've stayed at... We'll be back. Cozy. Friendly staff. Restaurant is incredible.... Get outside table if weather is ok. Views,tranquility, near to all Blowing Rock has to offer. This is the ultimate Blue Ridge Mountain get away.

My husband and I have stayed at several B&B's across the country and unfortunately this was not one of the better choices. After reading the reviews we had high expectations that did not meet the standards of a B&B at these rates. Pros: the view and the staff. Cons: the breakfast, the 6 inch hole in the bathroom that had... More

The Gideon Ridge Inn is a warm and relaxing place. We were very impressed by how nicely decorated all the rooms are, each one being unique. I forget the name of our room but the bathroom had just recently been renovated and it even had a small fireplace in the bathroom. Our room also had a nice patio. The main... More

We stayed here 17 years ago and knew that we had to stay here again for our 17th anniversary. It was a special treat for us to be in the same room (French); even though this room is not one of the more luxurious in the lodge, it is still classically elegant. We liked spending what time we had on... More

What a lovely, peaceful spot to celebrate our anniversary! A beautiful old stone lodge with great amenities. The view is awesome. Service was fabulous. Breakfast was wonderful and we had a fabulous dinner, too. The afternoon tea on the deck overlooking the mountains was spectacular.

We stayed for two nights whilst exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were met at the door as we arrived and shown the tea /coffee making facilities which were always available. Our room was light and spacious with its own private verandah. The bathroom included an impressive bathtub as well as a shower. Breakfast was served in the dining room... More
