So I finished working the graveyard shift and decided to pack and go for a short and sweet trip to my favorite place during the fall of the year. By the time the sun began to rise we were all set to watch it rise from Moses Cones' Home. What a beautiful sunrise!

Every time we get near Blowing Rock we ALWAYS stop here. This trip we drove from Florida so we could bring our dog. The walk around Bass lake is really easy and is so beautiful. We were lucky and actually saw the beavers that live in Bass lake. If you look carefully you can see where they have been cutting... More

As others have said, this is a very beautiful area and worth a stop. I really hope that one day they can restore the mansion and possibly use it in a different way. It sits on an amazing setting.

Nice walking path around Bass Lake - about .7 miles - and wide enough for runners and walkers. The Maze is about 2 miles and a beautiful moderate walk around the Apple Barn.

My husband and I visited the park with the intentions to see Cone Manor and I am so happy we did! Hands down, this is the most beautiful house and area we have ever seen. We were amazed that the house was just locked up with no security or anyone watching the house, as it is such a lovely house!!... More

When we visited this park during December, the manor & shop were closed, but we were there for hiking anyway. The house is beautiful to see and the view from the house is so pretty looking down on the lake. We did the entire approximately 8.1 mile loop trail around the park. It was gorgeous! The trail is made up... More

The shops had some very nice items. We go to a lot of pottery places and the pottery prices seemed a little high. The guild reps running the location were very nice, friendly and informative. The trip, though, is worth the view from the front porch.

The park is good sized and you can spend a great deal of time walking around if you plan it right. We just made a quick stopin the parking lot and saw the views and the house. Great views from the top of the hill and from the porch looking down to the lake and river.

Easy trails and lots of choices from the popular lake near Blowing Rock center to the old mansion up on the hill. Broad trails, easy walks for all levels.
