We spent three nights in the Grandfather View suite at the Gideon Ridge Inn. The suite is wonderful, it has two bathrooms, one with a giant marble shower. The suite also has a tube in the bedroom for more intimate bathing. The king sized bed is extremely comfortable with the best linen available. The best part of the room is the breath taking view of Grandfather Mountain looking out the window of the sitting area. The service at the inn is outstanding and the people are so friendly. The breakfasts are delicious, cooked to order. The tea served every afternoon at four with scones and other treats is excellent. We enjoyed meeting the other guests at tea and trading travel experiences.
