A very nice and clean Motel/Inn. An older "motor lodge" type of place, it was VERY clean. It offered all the modern amenities of a modern Inn. Very cozy! Friendly staff. Cocktail/wine hour, great breakfast! Will be back!!

We stayed in the Chestnut cottage. Within easy walking distance of downtown Blowing Rock. We brought Jackson or three year old pup along for a walk around Bass Lake at Moses Cone Bass Lake. Pet friendly with $25.00 deposit.

My son and I stayed here with his Australian Shepherd puppy for a night while taking a quick break to enjoy the fall colors. The room was comfortable and the hospitality was great! Great location in downtown Blowing Rock.

We stopped in Blowing Rock after a day on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was only for one night but I wish we could've stayed longer. The Inn is quaint and charming. It has a colonial/mountain feel. They have wi-fi, a social hour in the evening and breakfast in the morning. The front desk staff was delightful and welcoming. The...

This place has been around for a while and was once a family-owned business. It is a small, pet-friendly motel, located on Sunset Drive, right off the main street in Blowing Rock. If you plan to spend lots of time around town, the location is perfect since a number of restaurants are located near the motel. The motel rooms have...

My husband and I could not have been happier with our choice for a last minute 1st wedding anniversary getaway! We weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised and pleased! We originally booked the Chestnut Cottage, but they called us the day we were arriving and said they were upgrading us to the Tarheel Suite for our anniversary....
