Homestead Inn
Ranked #2 of 10 Blowing Rock B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is a quaint little property with a couple of room options. Four of us were there in May, 2012 on motorcycles while riding the Blue Ridge Parkway. The owners are very friendly and put out drying cloths for our bikes in the mornings, offered information on wonderful roads for us to ride, and great restaurants to try. We could not have been happier with the beautiful landscaping, the clean rooms, the relaxed atmosphere, and the inviting and friendly hosts.

My husband and I took my Mother to Blowing Rock May 22-24th, 2012. I called the Homestead Inn to inquirer about accomendations. Caroline Valet was most helpful in making our reserversation and seeing to it that my Mother (who is 96) had a very confortable room with a walk-in shower. Our room was also very nice and the bed was firm like we like. The rooms are very clean and accented with the flavor of a country inn. Outside of your room there were rocking chairs which we made great use of. There were freshly planted hanging flower baskets for us to enjoy. We will diffentily spend our next trip at the Homestead and look forward to seeing Robert and Caroline Valet again.

$90 was a lot to pay when $49 was the price advertised, and the "rooms with fireplace and jacuzzi" is misleading. You get a fake fireplace (gas) and the "jacuzzi" is a small tub/shower with jets. Definitely not big enough for more than one person to enjoy at a time. Other than that, the free coffee was nice and the room was clean.

We love this place. It is so comfortable and inviting. Room had Jacuzzi, fireplace, microwave, etc. Very clean and quite!!! Price extremely reasonable. We are treated like family. I loved waking up and hearing the birds in the morning. Nice stroll looking at all the beautiful flower baskets and gardens, as I went to get my AM coffee in the office. Nothing could be finer.......

Room Tip: Depends on what size you want and amenities. It is a very quite place.

My husband and I stayed a few nights to check on a rental property we own in a neighboring town. We were married in Blowing Rock and decided to stay there. The owners were out of town but they had family managing while they were gone. The property is half a block to main street! We loved the rocking chairs on the front porch. The room was spotless. The value for the price is fantastic. We would love to bring the whole family back and would definately stay at The Homestead. If you go to Blowing Rock during the Wine Festival expect everyone to be drinking wine. There are many events throughout the year so go and have a great vacation!

My pals and I've stayed here on occasions over the last 4 years as part of our annual trip from the UK to attend Merlefest. We originally stayed elsewhere in Blowing Rock but after trying the Homestead in 2006 we're not looking to change. I love everything about it; it's clean and comfortable, and very reasonably priced. It's an easy walk to the shops, restaurants and bars (actually that's not the order we tend to do it in!). Last year while we were there I watched and chatted with some local builders who were refurbishing a couple of rooms, so I know from first hand that the owners have an investment programme to keep their property in good shape. Rob and Caroline and their staff are always very helpful to us and I have no hesitation to recommending the Homestead Inn

Room Tip: The rooms are different rates for different sizes. Tell Caroline what you want, and she'll come...

We happened upon this charming little inn nestled in the heart of Blowing Rock during a recent last-minute escape to the mountains. After spending the day exploring, we were hoping for a secluded, yet reasonably priced charming room for the night - and were delighted with the cozy atmosphere and feeling of privacy. The owners were warm and friendly, the rooms had a wonderful cabin feel, and the jacuzzi was heavenly. We'll definitely be back. Thanks to our gracious hosts!
