Can't visit the High County without stopping here

Always walk off your Blowing Rock-based meal with a walk around the lake or up to the grave yard or fire tower.

Our family of four (children 12 and 7) visited this park while camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The views are amazing, and the hikes enjoyable. Great seeing horseback riders and lots of people walking and jogging. The house is unfurnished, but beautiful nonetheless. The upstairs was open for self-guided tours, and we had a delightful conversation with Chuck Robertson,... More

This site offers hiking and a crafts store with fine crafts from wood, to textiles, to NC pottery all from the Southern Highlands Guild. The manor house itself is located with a view to the mountains. A very nice place to stop along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

It is a pretty, old house and grounds, but is not used as a house anymore, so no house tours. It is now a craft center where they sell beautifully made handi-crafts, quilts, wood-working, etc. It is not inexpensive, though. If you drive there, it is on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside.

The Moses Cone Park offers miles and miles of well groomed carriage trails for hiking and horseback riding. I have hike most of the 27 mi., and you can pretty much pick your level of difficulty and distance. The Manor House is a nice attraction offering tours and a great gift shop. The 2 lakes, Trout and Bass, offer fishing... More

We love the craft area on the first floor. Very well done with similar crafts together. It is amazing that there is so much talent in this area. The staff are well informed about the home and it's history. There are numerous trails to walk and you can even go horse back riding. Lovely way to spend a few hours... More

We arrived at 9 and stayed until noon. The house is not for touring, but rather used as a craft shop for local artisans. Would have liked to see the home, but the grounds are spectacular. We walked to Bass Lake and back, a 5 mile round trip. Horseback riding is available if you can seek a guide or rental.

One of the best panoramic vistas in the area waits for you at the top of the fire tower; 360 degree view. The trail is somewhat strenuous (2.5 miles up hill to the tower) but definitely worth the effort.

We have ridden our horses at Moses Cone park numerous times. There are miles and miles of trails to ride on, or walk. Dogs should be on a leash.......unfortunately not everyone abides by the law and a couples long haired white dog came running around a curve on the trail and spooked my husband's horse and he entered up on...

This is one of the most beautiful places in the area to visit. The manor sits on top of the mountain overlooking Bass Lake. Bass Lake is a .7 mi. walk with excellent walking path and beautiful views of the lake. Great place to take your dog for a enjoyable hike around the lake. The trails up by the manor... More
