We just returned from Blowing Rock and stayed at the Azalea Garden Inn. On arrival, before I sat foot in the room ,I knew it was a special place... The property is immaculate. It is hard to imagine any one small family could maintain their property so well. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have not seen property so well maintained since Disney World. Their gardens and yard(and the whole place) are maintained by the 2 daughters and son. Their parents owned this motel and now they have taken it over. The interior was just as sparkling clean as any 5 star property (Not 5 star prices though!) and the furnishings were nice and heavy Broyhill pieces.. The room was very big with nice big bathrooms as well. We only stayed one night but wished we had stayed our entire time here. Unfortunately, they were booked when we inquired about other nights.. I can see why! I just can't say enough about this place. They are indeed gracious hosts!
Oh yes, and there are covered outdoor seating areas around this small property with wicker furniture ,gas lit chimineas and candles. Perfect to sit outside on a cool mountain night and enjoy a glass of wine.. Oh, and I have to mention the screen doors on every room and the open windows... We didn't even use the air conditioning!
