We have stayed at Gideon Ridge many times, and have never been disappointed! Each room has its own special charm and appeal, and all provide the ultimate in comfort. Little things make for big surprises ~ the nightly turn down service, the plate of special cookies or candies, the weather forecast print out for the next few days. Bigger things make for even bigger delights ~ the fluffy robes, the huge bath sheets, the heavenly comfort of the bedding, the gas fireplaces.
Gideon Ridge is the only place we consider when in the Blowing Rock area ~ and when making a Blue Ridge Parkway trip end to end, staying at parkway concessions the whole way, Gideon Ridge is where we take a day or two to totally pamper and indulge ourselves!! The setting of the Inn is private and secluded but only a couple of minutes from downtown Blowing Rock ~ porches just beg for you to sit and drink in the vistas or the peace and quiet. We have loved each visit, and plan to enjoy many more!
