“An excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2008

We have been staying here for many years for our weekend getaways to Blowing Rock. Caroline and her family are wonderful. We have NEVER had a problem staying here and have always had a wonderful time. Be sure to get a room with a fireplace, they are great. Within 1/2 block of the main street, the Homestead Inn is literally minutes from all the shops and restaurants in Blowing Rock. Highly recommended!!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2008

My wife and I stayed here 6/22 - 6/24, $89.00 plus tax per night, we have stayed in many motels in the past 5 years and this was one of the most cleanest places we have stayed at yet, our room #6, had a king bed that was very comfortable, a fireplace that we didnt use, an air conditioner that we did use and it worked very well, also it had a 25" Television and also a DVD player, small refrigerator, microwave, single person jacuzzi tub, phone and was plenty big enough for 2 people, all the rooms are non smoking. When we arrived the nice lady at the office let us see 2 differnet rooms that we had the choice of, the rooms were not musty smelling at all, the inn grounds were beautiful with flowers everywhere and there were even some big tomato bushes there also, to sum it all up, it was a great room with a great price for the area, was walking distance to just about eveything in Blowing Rock and evryone was just as nice as they could be, we will be returning here again and would recommend it to anyone

  • Liked — the great price and it was so quite there
  • Disliked — we couldnt stay longer

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2008

Stayed two nights at Homestead Inn. Good experience. Nice owners. Room was spotless although a little smallish for a queen. It is and older "court style" motel that has been lovingly updated. This was probably the cleanest motel room we have ever stayed in...not shabby or worn. Comfortable bed. Pillows a little flat for me (I always say the next time I'll bring my own). Thoughtful owners and reasonable rates for the area. Well recommended.

  • Liked — Half a block from downtown Blowing Rock.
  • Disliked — Bright light outside room at night shining around drape.. could not turn it off.

Found several bugs in our beds. Coffee pot provided but no coffee. Inn keepers not at desk in morning -- had to knock on their private door to get service. Overpriced - $146 for one night! Porch area with rockers not clean.

  • Liked — Had a jacuzzi
  • Disliked — Bugs in the bed!

Great Little Place in the darling town of Blowing Rock, NC.
Clean updated rooms, we had a King with a climate control fire place and a jacuzzi tub. Right off of Main Street where all the antique, art and other shops are located. Easy walk to everything in town. Rooms were also pet available for another $10.00. Rockers in front of each room. Great place to stay, close to skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.

  • Liked — took dogs, clean, homey room, close to Main Street
  • Tips/Secrets — showers in the queen rooms are small
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with family
