My wife and I stayed three nights having dinner at the in-house restaurant once and breakfast included in the rate daily. The dinner was excellent, a bit pricey it prepared and the served breakfasts were very good Facility could use some renovation. We booked a room with a gas fireplace specifically due to that feature. Disappointingly it did not work.... More

Hundred-year-old stone inn with very modern facilities but old world feel. Love this place. Since I was last there two or three years ago they've added TVs and modernized some aspects... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gideon Ridge Inn for one night last week. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are amazing. It is just a short ride to the shops and restaurants of Blowing Rock. The place is very warm and inviting. They had snacks and tea late in the afternoon. We sat outside and took in... More

We love Gideon Ridge and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a romantic getaway. I feel very pampered when I'm there. It has a soothing atmosphere, very comfortable rooms, high quality bedding, courteous staff.....it's really all one could ask for.

We booked at the last minute based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not the least bit disappointed. From Charlie welcoming us, helping with bags and we think probably 10 other jobs to Emily who took care of us with cocktails on the back porch through a wonderful dinner - the staff was awesome. The room was perfect blend of historic... More

Amazing bed and breakfast. The rooms are beautifully decorated with all the perfect touches. It's a historic bed and breakfast but has all the modern amenities and comforts of home. (Showers are updated with frameless glass and wonderful showerhead. The towels are large and plush and they provide Aveda shampoo and soap products. The restaurant is a definite 5 star.

We've stayed at the Inn before but this was our first time staying in the Sunrise View Suite. What a lovely room! We had a private veranda with the most beautiful mountain view. The bed was comfy with lots of pillows and very fine bedding. Beautiful soaking tub and bathroom had all the amenities you find at upscale inns. Coffee,... More
