We enjoyed our overnight stay at Gideon Ridge while on a driving tour of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The accommodations in the Blue Room were extremely comfortable. Chocolates and peanuts in the room, a refreshment bar with coffee, tea and cold drinks, and the availability of cocktails from their kitchen would keep anyone happy. We were made to feel right at home by the staff. Once we went down to relax on their porch with the beautiful view we never wanted to leave. Fortunately, we never had to! We loved the fact that they offer a full service restaurant right there and we had an amazing meal. That was a huge treat after driving all day. We returned to our room to find the bed turned down and a plate of cookies on the bedside table. Sweet! Breakfast the next day did not disappoint either. We wished we had more time to explore Blowing Rock. We would definitely stay again if in the area.
