The Gable Haus Inn, a beautifully restored Victorian farmhouse, is set within the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains and has an outstanding food menu with culinary delights to tantalise the taste buds. The owners, Norma and Eric, went out of their way to make us feel at home. They were available to accommodate all of our needs, while providing a wealth of information about all the tourist sights in the area. It was clear that the owners take great pride in their lovely inn, and the service provided was top notch.
At the inn, guests can take their pick from a cosy room in the main house or one of the outside cottage suites. We chose to stay in the main house in the honeymoon suite, Cherokee Rose. The room was clean, spacious and absolutely beautiful. The best part was the huge jacuzzi tub located in the room; after a long day of hiking in the mountains or exploring the villages of Linville and Blowing Rock, it was delightful to come back and soak in the tub before dinner.
The grounds of the Gable Haus Inn are dotted with well-chosen works of art complementing the mood of each part of the garden. The English garden has a plethora of beautiful blooming flowers and meandering paths. The front porch and garden have comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing and watching the birds. Best of all, the location of the inn is perfect to use as a base to explore the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains, with spectacular scenery and breathtaking views around every corner! There was so much to see and do that we are already planning our next trip to the inn.
While the inn itself and the surrounding mountains are reasons enough to visit, the food menu was our favorite part of this holiday! The chef, Eric, offers guests the chance to try delectably different food, which really leaves a lasting memory. Every morning, a delicious breakfast was prepared. Then, in the evening, we scheduled a private dinner; again, the food was worthy of five star ratings! With fresh food, local ingredients and wines paired up to compliment perfectly, the food was our favourite part of our holiday at the inn!
In short, we highly recommend the Gable Haus Inn! The house is immaculate. The location is great. The food is scrumptious. We are already planning our next visit!
