A very quiet; yet active venue. We were there for lunch; reservations preferred. It is a very pretty setting, and the food is delicious Be prepared; if you have a pet, they are welcome on the grounds.

There could be but we always just park on Main Street Blowing Rock, then you can shop and walk to your hearts content.
