As a child in the seventies there were hotel and motels along the highway run by families that took pride in their business, were a rocking chair with as the place to waste your day away, and time stood still. I love the mountains of NC, the cool air, slow pace, honest people, and scenic natural beauty takes me home... More

This was our 4th stay. Hill winds is pet friendly and that was main reason for choosing the Inn. We discovered that should not be the reason for staying there. The charm of the main lodge is a huge plus. They serve a full breakfast in a delightful dining room. There is a happy hour with nice wine and snacks.... More

We just loved it here. There were 3 of us couples riding motorcycles and we had decided on Blowing Rock as a stopping place for the night. We had called another place that had been recommended to us by friends, however they were booked & they suggested the Hillwinds Inn--lucky us! We were immediately happy when we saw that there...

Let me start off by saying that all the Village Inns of Blowing Rock are under new management. The new GM, Scott Wiggins, has taken control and the changes are happening fast. If you've ever stayed in one of their Inns and weren't happy with the experience, don't be afraid to try again. We came up for graduation weekend and... More

Décor straight out of the '60s. Peeling paint, no curtains on the windows, tiny bath with NO storage space, noisy, broken A/C. If you've never been in a modern hotel and have low standards, this is the place for you! We were shown two rooms, each as bad as the other, and forfeited our deposit rather than stay in such...

We stayed here for 3 nights in January, the hotel is pet friendly and no size limit on your pet. The room had been remodeled and was very nicely done. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Great location, it was easy to walk everywhere in town. Will definitely stay here again.

Last year we stayed at a similar hotel in town. This place is absolutely adorable. They had a fire going in the lobby all the time, a nice breakfast and coffee. From 4-5 they have cookies and wine. It's not your everyday hotel, it's much more cozy and inviting! Don't expect anything fancy, but for the price it's such a... More

I had reservations at Hillwinds Inn in Blowing Rock, NC this past weekend 1/22-1/24 during the worst snow and ice storm that we have had in a long time. Due to the weather we could not possibly get to Blowing Rock. I called for two days getting no answer and leaving voice mails to cancel and reschedule. Only after our... More
