Lovely spot. Not close enough to walk anywhere, but short drive to downtown/hiking. DVD player in room and movies available, but DVD player wasn't hooked up. We couldn't get it to work and there was no one available to do it for us. Not a huge deal, but no reason to have it in the room if it's not hooked up.

Room Tip: The Carriage room is very quiet and has it's own entrance and patio. Very nice.

Have only good things to share about our stay. Had the Old Master Room, which was very spacious, had a very comfortable bed, and a great porch sitting area. Breakfast was simple (eggs, pancakes, or strata), yet really good and generous portions. Amazing views. Room was quiet, and located in a secluded area.

Stayed there as we were passing through Blowing Rock. We were greeted by Anne are given a short tour and history of the Inn. It is truly a magnificent place to stay. The views are second to none in all directions. Our room was warm and comfortable and had a private porch with great views. We are dinner there and were amazed at the quality and taste of our meal and dinner service. Breakfast served by Anne, was awesome. Our stay here was a highlight of our trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains. We would highly recommend it to all......

This is one of the best B&Bs we've visited. We stayed in the Sunrise Room, which has a private entrance & your own secluded porch with chaise lounges overlooking a mountain view. Our room included a small sitting area, a soaking tub, large shower & king bed. They don't skimp on extras either - loads of Aveda bath products, a fridge stocked with pop & water and some light snacks. The breakfast was hearty & tasty (dinner was phenomenal as well) and the whole staff was friendly & helpful. I highly reccommend!

We were visiting a friend in North Carolina and he arranged for us to stay here. We had no expectations since our friend made the arrangements but we were very pleasantly surprised. The grounds are beautiful as well as the view of the mountains. We stayed in the Grandfather View room and it was very spacious for our family of 3. We could see Grandfather Mountain from our room. We checked in, had afternoon tea, played pool in the basement with cocktails, then had a wonderful dinner. The chef even came out to check on us. When we told him we were from California he prepared some foie gras for us since we cannot have it back home. That night was so quiet and peaceful, even though it is an old structure, we really could not hear people in the neighboring rooms. The rooms have all been updated with modern amenities. The following morning we had a wonderful breakfast, walked the grounds, and checked out.

The staff here is so attentive providing very personalized care to all of the guests. We had a truly unforgettable time here. Recommended as a great place to get away and just enjoy the peaceful and quiet surroundings.

Room Tip: Grandfather View room is the largest room so perfect for a young family. My 11 year old daughter sl...

Wonderful Inn. Beautifully maintained, top notch amenities, and staff that is available and willing to help to do anything to make your stay perfect. everything we needed to have a relaxing time was provided. We even received an acknowledgement of our anniversary when we arrived. This is the second time we have stayed here and it was as wonderful as they last time we stayed.

Love this inn - celebrated a college graduation and Mother's Day and there is no better place to stay in my opinion! The breakfasts in the sunny breakfast room are lovely, and the beds are comfortable. It is peaceful and quiet - truly restorative!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous.
