Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cliffdwellers. View from our room was fantastic, manager Rhonda and her son were great, and breakfast was very good. We loved Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room did not have an air conditioner but we definitely didn't miss that as the temperature i...

Stayed for three nights. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Great view from the balcony. The service was simply wonderful. Nothing was any trouble. Absolutely and utterly charming service. So much information to hand, useful advice and great local knowledge. Blowing Rock is a great destination to visit. Its a must, and if you go to Blowing Rock, Cliff Dwellers is the place to stay. It is the icing and cherry on the cake.

We really enjoyed our brief stay at the Inn - all the staff were wonderfully helpful and gave us great advice, the views are lovely and the beds really comfortable. The rooms are exactly as shown on the website, which is always a good surprise. We loved Blowing Rock and wished we had had more time to discover the lovely town.

Stayed in the King Loft and loved it. It has a private deck and a living room which is separate from the bedroom and made it feel like staying in an apartment.

The manager was very pleasant and gave us good tips about places to eat. Also, the inn's continental breakfast was a cut above a typical hotel one.

Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Room 206, the King Loft. It was fabulous! It had a marvelous view and the patio/balcony was private since it is the end room. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and the fireplace added just the right atmosphere for a romantic get away. The breakfast was a plus although we only got to take advantage of it once. (We only stayed 2 nights and we were out of the hotel before sunrise on the first morning.) It is very likely that we will return (maybe with the kids next time.)

Room Tip: Room 206 is probably the most private from what we could tell.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and spend your hard earned vacation dollars at Cliffdwellers. While we are a family friendly property, we do offer a number of very private rooms that offer seclusion and privacy. We are so happy to know that you loved what we have tried to create for all guests and wrapped it in an experience that feels like you are in your best friends comfortable home. Come see us again!

I love unique and different inns. Cliff Dwellers was all that. My family booked 4 separate rooms and we each thoroughly enjoyed the inn, the views, the hospitality and the experience. The next time I'm in Blowing Rock, Cliff Dwellers Inn will be my home away from home.
