I love Blowing Rock and I picked the Gideon because I loved the name. I was not expecting such great food and their menu is one of the most creative I have ever seen. The food was fresh and amazing. Anytime of year is a good time for the Gideon Ridge Inn. I went there to do some writing as...

One of my favorite places to stay ever. Beautiful rooms, gorgeous views, fabulous food, and spectacular service. We stayed in the Grandfather View room and never wanted to leave. So do yourself a favor and go visit. You deserve it.

Stayed in French Room. Enjoyed special touch of afternoon tea. Location is great & walking distance to the Blowing Rock. Breakfast was delicious, but should include cereals, muffins, pastries on bar. Common areas comfy & well appointed; BUT outdoor seating by the front entrance needs to be replaced - wooden chairs rotted & covered in mold/mildew. Service was very good,...

We've stayed in many B&B's over the years, and this is definitely one of the best. The historic home is beautifully situated with gorgeous views...we can't wait to go back when things are in bloom. We stayed in the Grandfather Suite, which has two wing back chairs in front of a large window that overlooks Grandfather Mountain. Add in the...

My wife and I really enjoyed our Valentine's Day/Anniversary at the Gideon this year. We opted for the Sunrise Suite and loved the spectacular views and amenities. There is a great attention to detail, and the staff added to the great experience. The dinner was great and we look forward to returning again someday. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Victorian Room at Gideon Ridge Inn. The antique furnishings, fireplaces, and decor were very warm and welcoming. The room also had a private terrace with view, but it was too cold to use it. The room and the entire Inn was immaculate. We didn't have dinner but we had appetizers in our room...

Gideon Ridge is a fantastic place to stay for a great short getaway from Charlotte. The staff is great and it makes one feel miles away from the rush of life. We enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the library and walking around the grounds.

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!!
