“Nice Area, Updates Needed”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We needed a stop over on our way to the Cabin we had rented for the week, we choose Bear Pause for the proximity to downtown Blowing Rock.
Pros: The Condo area is nice and although there are many full-time owners living there we didn't hear any noise other than the one walking above us at times. (Bear Pause is on the 2nd Floor). This Condo is Pet friendly but there was no pet smell at all. It was clean and decorated well.
Cons: bedroom by the front door needs a new mattress. You can feel the springs and it shook like jello when you turned over.
Both bathrooms need updating. The toilet area in the bedroom with the sink outside is very tight. The toilets need to be replaced with elongated seats. If you are over 5' in height(hubby is 6') the shower head hits you in the chest and you'd need to bend down to wash your hair.

If these types of things don't bother you, then I would recommend Bear Pause to anyone wanting to be close to Blowing Rock. The area seems safe, there are surveillance cameras in the parking lot. I do however, highly recommend using Blue Ridge Cabin Rentals for any of your vacation needs in the area. They are top notch!
