We enjoyed our stay in this 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage with our two boys to see snow. We choose this for the location, price, and amenities. We looked at staying in a cabin but wanted something closer town so we didn't have to cook if we didn't want to, but also something charming an private. These cottages seemed to be a perfect fit. We we able to walk down Main Street to many restaurants (our favorite was When it snowed), ice cream shop, fudge shop, shopping, local playground park, and local mini- market. A quiet charming town. Close to App Mountain ski - 7 minutes top, 40 mins to Sugar and Beech. , 25 mins to Grandfather Mountain, 1 mile to Blue Ridge Pkwy.
The Lavender cottage did not disappoint in charm and with lovely decor. It has a fireplace, washer and dryer (full size) and an air jetted tub. The upstairs loft has a king bed and was large for our boys 9 & 12. The master for us was downstairs (a little smaller) but you could use both - downstairs is closer to bathroom and has a walk in closet big enough for a pack n play. The patio was private for us because the inn was quite during our stay after the New Years rush, however if the inn was full your patio table is next to others. The bed was comfortable with lots of down pillows and the cottage had most things you would need. It does not have a DVD player - we had rain two days and would have enjoyed a DVD player. We extended our stay to 7 nights to be able to see snow. I agree with previous guests; the staff were all extremely pleasant and so willing to help.

The 8th night we stayed in the Wanalasse Suite and although it was larger we quite preferred the cottage. Although it was beautiful and definitely more spacious in the living room, The suite did not have a tub or W & D and the fireplace is see through to the living room from the bedroom. Check out the virtual tours - they help. The sauna was a nice touch and the deck was large and private. You have to walk upstairs each time to the suite and you sometimes could hear the phone from the lodge and the road noise was more evident. Nothing major except preferences, We would stay again in suite we just prefer the cottage.
The main lodge/lobby was always warm and welcoming with coffee, hot choc., tea, and a few snacks all day long long. This is not usual for hotels or inns so that was a nice convenient touch. The breakfast was very good for continental - they had sausage biscuits, cinnamon rolls, apples, egg/bagel bites, hard boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, and a few more I am forgetting. I like information - if your reading this think of that when you write a review. It takes time but can be valuable to picking the right spot.

Room Tip: Lavender Cottage was quite - off main road

My husband and I took my brother and his wife to the inn as their Christmas gift. My brother has cancer and is between treatments so it seemed a perfect gift. We have stayed with you many times in the past and are never disappointed! It is my favorite place to stay in Blowing Rock and always my first choice. We have stayed in both the regular rooms and the suites and are always pleased. The room is always comfortable, clean and well maintained. The suites of course are my favorite and they are fantastic!

Room Tip: Didn't use a fitness center and kids activities haven't been an issue. Although I did take my grandchildren and daughter for a weekend trip to Tweetsie and the kids wanted to fish and the inn suggested a great fishing spot at Grandfathers Mountain. It was great.

The Ridgeway Inn is a small cozy property nestled in Blowing Rock, NC. On the map it came up as being right next to Bass Lake- this is not correct however its actual location is even better. It is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants of Blowing Rock while being on the road to get to the parkway (about 1 mile from parkway entrance). Blowing Rock is a quaint town with a lot to offer. We had a basic queen bed room which had hardwood flooring in the bedroom and tile in the bathroom. Bathroom and bedroom each had their own heaters so we were never cold. The bed, pillows and sheets were all very nice. Room included a TV, clean refrigerator and coffee maker and nice bathroom soaps. The lobby of the Inn had a fireplace with a TV and sitting area with coffee and tea. There were also snacks and wine in the early evening. This would be a nice place to stay if you are in the area skiing or enjoying the numerous outdoor options in the area. Also great for a romantic getaway for couples who just want to relax. Blowing rock and Boone both have quaint shopping and delicious food options. For a good pizza- try Mellow Mushroom.

Upon arrival we were met by Christy. She was a joy and delight. We arrived in time for the wine and cheese reception. Everyone staying at the hotel and partaking of the wine and cheese were very friendly. We were given the names of some restaurants in town and given information on attractions. This is a great location! You could walk to restaurants in town and do some shopping. I must advise that this is a sleepy "little town" and they rolled up the sidewalks at night. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. If you are looking for an "uptodate place" this is not for you. It is very cute and quaint and very restful.

Great location waling distance to great restaurants and shopping. Blue Ridge Parkway is just around the corner. Blowing Rock is very cozy and beautiful. Free continental breakfast and free wine and cheese in the evening are really nice touches! Christy at the front desk is really great. Can't wait to come back!!
