I just have to say that nothing is perfect. We checked in....no water in the bathroom and no fire in the fireplace BUT.... as with any wonderful place the staff makes the difference. Literally within minutes water was running and fire was flickering. The staff here made it their MISSION to make us happy. They were so incredibly engaged in...

This inn is amazing in all ways: cozy rooms, a fire burning in the common room, great tea at tea time, amazing views! Although you don't have to eat at the restaurant, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't try to eat there!!

We had a brief but lovely overnight stay at the Gideon Ridge Inn. The staff was very welcoming and the light dusting of snow the following morning made for an enchanting view. The restaurant was excellent and we very much enjoyed both our dinner and breakfast (the latter included in the room rate) there. All in all we would highly...

The staff and the Inn itself are always perfection! We have stayed there many times and it never disappoints. The staff is always professional and warm, friendly. The rooms are comfortable and inviting.

My wife and I stayed three nights having dinner at the in-house restaurant once and breakfast included in the rate daily. The dinner was excellent, a bit pricey it prepared and the served breakfasts were very good Facility could use some renovation. We booked a room with a gas fireplace specifically due to that feature. Disappointingly it did not work....

My only comment is that we noticed some people who came in later for tea, which is served between 4 and 5pm, and other couples, including ourselves, had already consumed the sandwiches, etc. so I hoped the later arriving couple was also given tea sandwiches, etc. We also put a do not enter sign on our door, but someone came...

This in sits close to blowing rock monument. Gorgeous view from the top of the mountain looking down into the valley. Lovely gardens to sit and read a book. Hundred-year-old stone inn with very modern facilities but old world feel. Love this place. Since I was last there two or three years ago they've added TVs and modernized some aspects...

My wife and I stayed at the Gideon Ridge Inn for one night last week. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are amazing. It is just a short ride to the shops and restaurants of Blowing Rock. The place is very warm and inviting. They had snacks and tea late in the afternoon. We sat outside and took in...

We love Gideon Ridge and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a romantic getaway. I feel very pampered when I'm there. It has a soothing atmosphere, very comfortable rooms, high quality bedding, courteous staff.....it's really all one could ask for.

We booked at the last minute based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not the least bit disappointed. From Charlie welcoming us, helping with bags and we think probably 10 other jobs to Emily who took care of us with cocktails on the back porch through a wonderful dinner - the staff was awesome. The room was perfect blend of historic...
