We just returned from a wonderful overnight (all we had time for due to other committments) at the Gideon Ridge Inn. The Inn is comfortable, elegant but casual, and provides a considerable amount of privacy. The occasion was my husband's birthday, and the location was a surprise to him (a very pleasant one, as it turns out). I mentioned in...

This was our first stay at Gideon Ridge. We have stayed at other places in the area, however none of them come close to the excellent accommodations, staff, service and food at GR. We were suppose to have reservations at another restaurant in Blowing Rock our second night, but after having such a wonderful dinner with the best view in...

Loved the Grandfather View suite...spacious, nice view, 1.5 baths. The food was delicious from breakfast to the afternoon tea and dinner was outstanding, definitely five stars. Amazing views and spaces to enjoy the views throughout the property. The best thing about Gideon Ridge is the staff. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate and please us. Nothing was too...

I wouldn't chose another bed and breakfast in Blowing Rock after this stay. The staff was nice and the accommodations were great, and the breakfast and dinner there is spectacular. When we arrived, we already had that sense of coziness and comfort when we stepped in the door. If you are looking for a nicer bed and breakfast place in...

This was our second visit to the Gideon Ridge Inn. Every component of the stay was remarkable - the room, the staff, the food. Oh, and that view! The Inn is the perfect blend of luxury and laid back. We plan to make this an annual get away.

Love this place. The rooms are well maintained and furnished. The afternoon tea is quite nice - better than most. The view is wonderful. The whole package is just peaceful and relaxing. Not to mention the restaurant which is fabulous. The staff are friendly and courteous and helpful. Best place in Blowing Rock.

Wow. What a view from this property overlooking the mountain ridges. But beware, the driveway is narrow and the parking is tight. So for you folks with SUVs and large vehicles or you're just not a confident driver, you may want to talk to the Innkeeper about the logistics of managing your vehicle. There are 13 locations with 10 rooms...

We met dear friends there for a long weekend this spring. We had stayed there several years ago and knew it had one of the most spectacular settings next to the famous Gidion Ridge which overlooks so much of North Carolina. It was the summer home of the Cone family, the owners of Cone Mills who provided denim Levi Strauss...So...

We visited Blowing Rock August 26-28. We stayed at The Gideon Ridge Inn. I don't have one bad thing to say about our stay!!

We stayed here over 30 years ago the first time we visited the Blue Ridge Mountains. I remembered this inn as being charming and cozy and having amazing views. Fast forward to this month when we stayed there again for three nights. It was just as wonderful. The restaurant is often booked out as much as 3 weeks in advance....
