Such a wonderful stay. The rooms are delightful with the most comfortable beds!! The staff couldn’t be nicer or more accommodating. A really fantastic change from big chain hotels. Could not recommend more.

This is a great place to spend time in Blowing Rock. The rooms are neat and clean, the staff, without exception, is wonderful, and it is convenient to Blowing Rock. There are, however, two issues need to be highlighted. The airconditioning in Suite 5 was problematic throughout my stay. The evenings were comfortable but during the day, the heat in the room was an issue and it was difficult to bring it down. The staff did a yeoman's job to try and deal with this but the system needs to be looked into to see if a permanent solution can be found. Second, the wireless network was substandard. If you are going to offer wireless service, please provide a service that is significantly better than what you currently have. Finally, parking is pretty limited (we knew that ahead of time). My only suggestion would be to ensure the existing parking spaces are reserved for guests and are not taken by those coming to the restaurant.

I travel here for business, and after very long days, it's always a pleasure to come "home" to this wonderful place. The rooms are comfortable, and outfitted with exactly what I need for a few nights stay. The convenience of the (delicious) restaurant and bar on the first floor are an added bonus! It's like staying at a friend's house, having drinks and dinner, retiring upstairs for the night, and then coming down for a perfect breakfast and coffee. The location could not be more perfect, as it's just off Main Street, so within walking distance of all of the shops and other restaurants and bars. Although it's for work, I would definitely stay here for vacation in the future!

My husband and I stayed at The New Public House for a long weekend post wedding and we could not have had a better experience! Everyone is so friendly and accommodating our room was exactly what you see in the pictures. Breakfast each morning was fresh and delicious! I highly recommend eating out on the front porch, such a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere! We can’t wait to return and explore the Blowing Rock/Boone area again!

This little slice of heaven is in the heart of Blowing Rock, but is still a quiet, comfortable place to getaway. The bed was SO comfortable, the room itself was cozy decorated tastefully (we got to see a few other rooms as well and they're all beautiful) ... ours didn't have a bathtub but others did. One of the rooms has a gas fireplace! Soft fluffy towels and Aveda products in the bathroom. Breakfast is made to order right off their menu, and the staff (HI Kelly!) is oh so helpful and very friendly. Great trip, can't wait to go back!
