I came here for one night to go to a concert. We were staying in the cottages and from the outside appearance place looks really nice. We didn't get back until late that night and upon turning down the bed noticed that the sheets were covered in human hair and dog hair. The sheets clearly had not been washed from...

My family and I travel to Blowing Rock each October. One of the few places we had not stayed was the Hillwinds, so we thought we would give it a try. First of all, the family includes myself, my wife, and 2 children. We booked a room with 2 beds, because basically we can't all fit into 1 bed. Well...

We stayed over a weekend. The inns charming but has some problems. The room, Tarheel Suite, looks like it was recently redone. There was a LOT of dust in the room, especially on the ironing board. There should have been bottled water available at a price of $239 a night. The breakfast was very generic. The pancakes, waffles and eggs...

I visited Blowing Rock with my girlfriend for a short getaway. We arrived late and could not find an open hotel room in the surrounding area. There was apparently a big event going on that left many of the hotels completely full! We were desperate and did not want to pay too much for a hotel, so I decided to...

The Inn was in a perfect location, just a leisurely stroll to a host of great shops and restaurants. Comfortable amenities with a quaint feel. Hospitable service. We loved sitting out front, rocking in the chairs on the cool evenings sharing community with our neighbors. Complimentary glass of wine at happy hour was a nice welcome. Included hot breakfast with...

As a child in the seventies there were hotel and motels along the highway run by families that took pride in their business, were a rocking chair with as the place to waste your day away, and time stood still. I love the mountains of NC, the cool air, slow pace, honest people, and scenic natural beauty takes me home...

This was our 4th stay. Hill winds is pet friendly and that was main reason for choosing the Inn. We discovered that should not be the reason for staying there. The charm of the main lodge is a huge plus. They serve a full breakfast in a delightful dining room. There is a happy hour with nice wine and snacks....

We just loved it here. There were 3 of us couples riding motorcycles and we had decided on Blowing Rock as a stopping place for the night. We had called another place that had been recommended to us by friends, however they were booked & they suggested the Hillwinds Inn--lucky us! We were immediately happy when we saw that there...
