We stayed here over 30 years ago the first time we visited the Blue Ridge Mountains. I remembered this inn as being charming and cozy and having amazing views. Fast forward to this month when we stayed there again for three nights. It was just as wonderful. The restaurant is often booked out as much as 3 weeks in advance.... More

The last time we visited, the gourmet restaurant was not open, so this time we planned our trip so we could sample the food. The whole experience was wonderful, in spite of the fact that we arrived on our motorcycles soaking wet. Our cocktails were perfectly made in beautiful glasses which I immediately wanted to buy! (They don't sell them).... More

The location has to be the primary draw. You cannot see another man-made structure without peering through the trees, but you are close to wonderful restaurants, good hiking trails, etc. The staff is consistent over time and always pleasant, helpful, readily available, yet non-intrusive. Food is excellent.

First the reservation was quick and easy. The staff was friendly, courteous, and pleasant during our stay. The location is within 10 minutes of the town of Blowing Rock and easy to find. When you drive onto the property the driveway is one way and narrow. Parking is somewhat limited. The outside is well maintained and cared for. The home... More

While there are some outstanding choices in the Blowing Rock area, Gideon Ridge stands alone. The quaint serene nature along with excellent service and superb meals make it a must. The Sunrise view suite is the best room in the area. My wife and I enjoyed a large private patio and large king suite. I could never do justice to... More

My wife and I first stayed at the Gideon Ridge Inn during the 1980s. It was terrific then, and it is still a treat today. In fact, it is even better than ever because when we first visited, the inn did not serve dinner, but now not only is a gracious and comfortable place to stay but also is the... More

We stayed here for an anniversary getaway. First of all, I would say that all the reviews on Trip Advisor were correct. This place is outstanding. We stayed in Cedar Cottage and although the views are not spectacular the privacy makes up for it. Our room was not dripping in elegance, but it was tastefully decorated, very clean and very...

Like many travelers, we use Select Registry as a filter whenever possible. Gideon Ridge was one of three B&B's we stayed in on our Blue Ridge Pkwy trip. It was our favorite. When you make your room reservation, book you reservation for dinner. Dinners are truly exceptional, and breakfast was tasty too with Bananas Foster French toast. The restaurant is... More

We try to use Select Registry properties every time we travel. We have stayed in several wonderful Inns in the last year or two. Gideon Ridge has ranked as one of our favorites since a visit last summer. We visited again last week and can say with certainty that Gideon Ridge is the best of the best. It has everything....

The Old Master room is lovely. The private deck is a great place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine while viewing the fantastic landscape and mountains. The Staff is very friendly, accommodating and professional. We had dinner and it was very good. The waiter was very friendly. We love the fact that you can get great fine dinning... More
