Pros: The staff made extra effort to have the room clean a little early. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The quaintness and the character of the location makes it a little more special .
Cons: It would have been much appreciated to have had a more lightweight blanket available that could have been used in case one did not need the lovely down comforter on the bed in the middle of August!

Pros: This is a charming inn. The standard rooms are clean and provide the necessities for a standard stay. If you want convenience this a the perfect place and a great value. Very dog friendly if you travel with your four legged family. The great part about this property is it is within walking distance to all of downtown Blowing Rock which is very important to us. The staff is wonderful and the manager is very personable. They serve wine and snacks from 4:30-until 5:30; just enough for a pre-dinner socializing with other guests before heading out for evening plans. Breakfast is good but not for the hardy appetite. Parking is outside each room (except suites) which is convenient for loading and unloading. We stayed in the king suite this trip and we love the size and comfort of the large bathroom, sitting area, bedroom and kitchen. There are two suites available in main building. The steps can be hard to climb if you have physical limitations. The balcony of the suites are not covered so when it rains you can't enjoy the very comfortable rocking chairs. If you are looking for mountain views this will not meet your needs. It does provide a quiet atmosphere from the busy main street.
Cons: The king suite is accessed from the opposite side of the building where you park your car. During rainy days and nights this makes getting to your entry a little difficult.
