The Inn at Crestwood was built as a family home by an architect who designed it to take advantage of great mountain views, the best in Blowing Rock. His son runs it now as an Inn. It is elegant and understated, and staff are helpful. We stayed in a 2-bedroom cottage with fireplace. Unfortunately, it was too cold to go out on the terraces to really savor the views.
A few problems with maintenance: light bulbs outside cottage were out; hair dryer was broken. A little wallpaper in the master bath was peeling because of moisture and insufficient caulking. The spa has potential. It has just been taken over by a separate company, which is good, because the exercise equipment didn't work. New equipment is on order, and a new, glassed-in exercise room is planned on the terrace.
Dominic's Restaurant was very good, but some dishes had more sauce and starch than we calorie-conscious prefer. The dining room and adjacent bar also have panoramic views. Continental breakfast is included and served in the library next to the bar. It's standard: fruit, pastries, coffee, juice, rolls. I wish some of it had been homemade.
Location is 10 minutes or so from town, on winding roads, which is both a plus and a minus. The town in Blowing Rock has good restaurants, but we don't like to negotiate the twisty roads in the dark. On the other hand, this is a lovely setting.
