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....

Not exactly like we remember it from a few years ago. The breakfasts were more variety and the high tea in the afternoon was over the top, with lots of really good options. This time, the food was good, and the tea options were okay. The smell of pine sol when you walked in the front door for breakfast was... More

This was first visit to Gideon Ridge Inn and we were extremely pleased with the lodgings and the attention to detail. Spectacular views from every corner! Service was always "What else can we do"!! The breakfast was exquisite. Will definitely plan a return visit.

We stay at the Gideon Ridge Inn once a year in the spring, and it is always a highlight of our year. The peaceful, tranquil setting, along with the excellent service and hospitality, make it a perfect weekend getaway. It's close to town and great restaurants. They can make your reservations for you, and point you in the right direction... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights and had such a wonderful time! The staff is so friendly and helpful and we couldn't ask for a nicer room and view. Stayed in the Victorian room with the Japanese soaking tub. The bed was so comfy and we loved walking around the grounds. We would highly recommend this for a... More

I had the very great pleasure of having dinner at Gideon Ridge. All three courses were fabulous and innovative! Hunter, chef, made the rounds through the dining room asking for feedback which all seemed positive. On top of it all, it was restaurant week so everything tasted even better! Can't wait to return.

This place is very much worth the visit. Our favorite location to go near the Boone area. The key is you do not even have to leave the property. Just go a relax! We were in the sunrise suite and it has a whirlpool and a private patio with a view that does not end. The restaurant is also the... More
