My family has been traveling to Blowing Rock for 50 years. We only discovered this hidden gem a few years ago. Fantastic spot for a getaway but you may need 4 wheel drive in the winter. All the better! We will be returning soon taking a group of friends.

As a retired hotel executive with over 46 years in the business, I have to say this is the finest example of customer service anywhere. The ownership - Cobb - the chef - Hunter- and the rest of the staff were the best I have seen anywhere. Everything was perfect, from the accommodations to the food...you could not ask for... More

I arrived home from a place I will call "little heaven" last evening. While I pondered over the spectacular views, and service I wondered how many people actually understand that this place is located on the side of a mountain, and where before sunrise, and at first light the view is like a piece of heaven. Standing in my room... More

We have been going to Gideon Ridge for years - it is a unique mountain getaway, and the staff is wonderful. The rooms are very charming, and we feel like we are in a small European Inn. We will keep coming back.

Second visit at Gideon Ridge and we had a great time. Previously we stayed in the Cedar Cottage but this time we stayed in the main buidling in the Victorian Room. Slightly smaller than the suites but had everything we needed including nice fireplaces in both bedroom as well as bathroom. Bathroom was also nicely updated with huge bathtub and... More

This is a scenic old B&B that needs some TLC. The staff rushed through explaining how the heat worked, time of breakfast and the other information about the B&B. Our room was neat and had everything we needed, but appeared to need a good cleaning and sprucing up. The shower was very strange, one wall was glass blocks that faced... More

While wandering around on a road trip from Florida we found this place. Perfectly situated with an amazing view of the mountains from almost every window. The rooms are beautiful.. not too frilly and antique filled but just right. I absolutely adored the fireplace in the room and our bathroom. Yes, our bathroom not only had a fireplace but a... More

Staff was great, food was outstanding! A little away from downtown, but, the views are wonderful!! We spent time in the fireplace room reading and talking with other guests. One set of guests have been coming here for over a decade, at least once a year to pick-up a Christmas tree. The spoke highly of the place, and the proprietors.

This is my favorite mountain getaway. Gideon Ridge Inn is a lovely tucked-away serene and charming inn. The afternoon tea is just ideal - whether on the outside beautiful sprawling porch during summer, or by a fire in the warmth of the cozy gathering room during winter. Gideon Ridge soothes my soul.
