“Great Vacation in Quaint Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

We certainly enjoyed our stay at the Hillwinds Inn right in the middle of Blowing Rock. Nice hotel with great staff. We had a great time and will stay there again!

Overall, we had a nice one night stay this past weekend. The front desk attendant was friendly and provided good service. The wine and cheese hour from 5-6pm was nice and breakfast then next morning was better than I expected. Only negatives were that the toilets flushed VERY loudly and continued to make noise for about a minute after flushing and the walls were fairly thin so you could hear noises from other rooms.

The location was convenient to the Main St shopping area (about a 3 block walk)

All in all, a nice place that I would consider staying in again.

We stayed in the Davidson Suite, and it was wonderful! The pictures on the Hillwinds website were accurate, it was clean, warm, and a nice mix of modern/quaint. There is also a full kitchen. The hotel is right downtown, and you can walk everywhere that you need to go. I can't speak to the regular rooms because I didn't see them, but if you're willing to cough up the extra for the Davidson Suite, you will definitely enjoy it!

We were on a Goldwing Trip with another couple just traveling along the Blue Ridge Parkway and taking our time enjoying all of the sights. As the sun started to set, we decided it was time to find a place for dinner and a good nights rest. Our next exit was Blowing Rock, so we got off the exit and discovered the most amazing and quaint little town in North Carolina. We stayed at a place called Charming Inns and they were just little cottages within walking distance to the town and restaurants. Charming Inns is the perfect name for this place as everyone (especially Lisa!) was very welcoming and invited us to their wine and cheese party which was a wonderful treat after riding all day. We would definitely encourage anyone looking for charming people and a great resting place to visit Charming Inns of Blowing Rock. We hope to come back again very soon!

Room Tip: Peaceful and clean country cottages
