Homestead Inn
Ranked #2 of 10 Blowing Rock B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 16, 2011

Stayed for 4 nites during Mitford Festival - Small place - has all the conveniences - not a cookie cutter inn, an oldie but a goodie, with HIGH value for the dollar - - we had many in our group staying there, and enjoyed the front yard. The main street of Blowing Rock is literally about 100 ft away - - about half of our fun was walking rather than having to drive - - there is a range of room sizes, so ask, they were honest with us - - all rooms were well-equipped, clean, and comfortable - some large with fireplaces for those skiers coming to town - - even had WiFi for guests and flat screen tv's - - in the summer, you'll find flowers and rocking chairs and swings - - they even put out lemonade for guests after lunch - - Family run place with a great atmosphere

My wife and I booked the trip basically for the kids. They were wanting to go to tweetsie railroad, and the gem mine. As we were shopping online looking at the reviews on trip advisor this place caught my eye. The reviews were excellent and the rates blew my mind. I gave them a call and had a very nice conversation with the owner Caroline. She was very helpful in the room selection process. I decided to stay in room eight. It was very clean and extra large. We also booked room seven for my two kids. They each got their own bed and flat screen TV. This made my wife and i very happy. They had hot coffee and teas every morning we were there. The layout of the property was amazing, and the owners just made it better. I plan on staying here again.

Stayed at the Homestead Inn from 5/20 to 5/22. Our room was equipped with a king bed and jacuzzi. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and the room was a good size for the furniture. It is an ideal place to take advantage of the shops and restaurants in Blowing Rock. The inn is closer to one end of the downtown area but it is only roughly a ten minute walk from one end to the other. From the reviews there are different size rooms, so I can only recommend the king and single jacuzzi.

Set out with my hubby and 6 year old and a friend and her 10 year old and 4 year old looking for some halloween fun in the mountains. I found this charming little inn 1 block from downtown main street blowing rock where all the activities were going to take place. This place is an absolutely wonderful find!!! We stayed in one side of a pretty large cottage across the street from the main inn. We had a living room with queen size sofa bed, bedroom room with very comfy king size bed, nice size kitchen and bathroom. It had enough room for us and our medium size dog. The place was very clean and pretty with seasonal flowers and plants. There's a nice big side yard for the doggies to run and do their business. It's very cheap for the high season. We have found our home away from home in the "high country".

I stay every year in this wonderful motel in downtown Blowing Rock, NC. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The area is quiet and the coffee is always hot in the lobby. The flowers surrounding the motel are beautiful and the folks that run it are great! You cannot beat the price!

The Homestead was an absolute gem. My husband I stayed in one of their cottages for a quick weekend trip recently and we were thrilled with the set up. One large bedroom with a king sized bed, one living room with a nice pull out couch, a cute kitchen with everything we might need, and a hallway that was big enough to fit our daughter's pack n' play in an attempt to keep her from waking any other guests. The location was ideal, less than a half block to Main street, restaurants the park, etc. The service was excellent and the inn keepers were really kind and accommodating. The whole place was very clean and tidy. The furniture and decor was cozy and welcoming. We loved sitting out on the rocking chairs on the front porch in the evening. We would definitely stay here again and are recommending to our family and friends.
