In a word, lovely. A great setting for a picnic & walk or just a break from road travel. Lovely hand crafted wares are amazing & the cost reflects it. The historic home is beautiful, lake & landscape are breathtaking.

Amazing property in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Blowing Rock and right off the Parkway. Stunning views abound, and so peaceful.

We love the Cone Estate, which I began visiting as a teenager many years ago for fall color walks on the trails. Now fast forward my husband and I visit on vacation from Michigan, and sometimes our in-laws join us. This summer the lovely old house looked a bit better cared for, and happily a few wicker rockers had been... More

Love This Place! This is a wonderful stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, NC. Stroll the paths and trails to stretch your legs and visit the beautifully preserved home to admire and purchase beautiful handmade Appalachian crafts. I never miss an opportunity to visit here.

Lovely home and beautiful views from the front porch. Nice to step back in time to see how the Cone family lived the turn of the century! Gift shop filled with local artisan's crafts.

We returned to Moses Cone to hike while keeping an eye to the sky since there was a 90% chance of rain. The good news is that the rain held off. The trails are superb, wide enough to accommodate horses and hikers and gentle enough not to wear you down while hiking. We hiked nearly nine miles and look forward... More

Wonderful trails amidst mature forests that open up to meadows and lakes. Not very crowded when I did a 4 mile hike and everyone was friendly.

Lots of wide carriage trails make Cone Park a popular place for walking, hiking and enjoying the views. The lake is lovely and you never feel crowded because of the spacious trails. The Manor House at the top has all sorts of local crafts (very high end) in pottery, wood, textiles, jewelry, etc. Well worth a visit.

You can schedule a tour of the upstairs at the Manor House on Saturdays. A ranger leads the informative tour with the history of the Cone family, their workers and staff and apple orchards. The Southern Highlands Craft Center at the Mansion has beautiful jewelry, folk art and word works.
