I'm so glad you like the Meadowbrook and our location in Blowing Rock! Our Main Building just had its silver anniversary last year. Our Annex Building is younger, with more upscale rooms and fireplaces. We have a strong, cyclical renovation program, so each room gets a face lift about every 6 years. This year we're changing the interior design of the 3rd floor in our Main Building. Look for more wood trim, more upscale upholstery, white bedding, and new furniture. Bathrooms will get new ceilings, wallpaper, countertops and tile. We anticipate that the 3rd floor will be completed in the late fall, and next spring we plan to start on the 2nd floor.
Thanks for your compliments and your kindness!
We stayed in this hotel one night before heading back to Florida. I wanted a very relaxing evening so I reserved the room that has a private pool. This was so very nice. As soon as we checked in I headed for our private pool, took a nice swim and then again before going to bed. The room was great, the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Wish I had stayed longer.
I'm so glad you loved our Pool Suite! Our property owner, who is also a mechanical engineer, designed this room. We keep the water temperature at 90 degrees, and the floating mats are a treat!
It seems that couples who want to relax, or couples who are seeking a romantic getaway, really enjoy this room style.
However, another whole group of families with little ones loves our Pool Suites, as well! While one parent gets to sleep in, the other parent can put the little ones in the pool before breakfast.
The room's layout: a King bedroom, a Living Room with sleeper sofa and fireplace and wet bar, Bath with whirlpool tub and his/her shower heads. A spiral staircase leads downstairs to the pool, which is 4' deep, 16' long, and 8' wide.
Thanks for your kind words about our staff, and thanks for staying with us!
The first night we had to have them bring clean sheets. There was some oily substance on the top sheet and hair on the sheets. This was about 10:30 and was already for bed so we changed the sheets. I was so upset I forgot to take darn pictures. But I did put them all together so that they would have them to look at in the morning. They said that they could not find them that they had already been put with the other ones.
They did let us leave early which was the best part of the stay.
I remember your last review of our property, which was very similar to this one. You may recall that, when you and I spoke about the issues from your stay this time, I encouraged you to find a property that might better suit your needs. The important thing is that you enjoy your time in our beautiful area!
My staff brought you fresh linens at 10:30 at night, and, had we been given the opportunity, we would have changed the entire bedding system. Both my Housekeeping and Front Desk teams are trained to replace linens or to provide late-night or emergency service when guests need them.
In the morning, when you told me that you wished to stay another night, my Housekeeping director did a full clean of your room and changed all the linens again, from mattress pad to comforter. Both she and I inspected the room after the cleaning.
Of course, I was surprised that you checked out later that day, but this was not a problem for us in any way.
All in all, wherever you stay in our beautiful town of Blowing Rock, I hope you enjoy the mountains and the scenery, and I hope you find a wonderful hotel property that absolutely works for you!
Overall the one word to describe Meadowbrook is Fabulous. It is obvious that staff, management and owners are very thoughtful. The rooms were spacious and Clean. There was coffe in the lobby. Breakfast was hot and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. You could buy discounted tickets for attractions at the main desk. It was like they had thought of everything. The pool area was even clean. We were there in Easter and we asked about local Easter Services and the had a printout ready of local places. We will definitely stay again and will spread the word. Thanks Meadowbrook!
Thanks for all your kudos, Lisa! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our staff works very hard behind the scenes to make guests comfortable.
But, moreover, we love to be creative (as a boutique hotel should be) and do small touches that make our guests feel special!
I'm glad you liked our chef's upgraded and complimentary Easter breakfast and the coffee our culinary team provides. I'll let him know.
The Easter Bunny and Easter Bunny baskets were so much fun for our staff!
It was a great weekend, with lots of happiness and lots of Easter surprises; I'm glad the list of services was helpful to you, as well.
We'll look forward to seeing you back sometime soon! Have a great spring!
We have been staying at the Meadowbrook Inn for over seven years when we visit Blowing Rock. We have always fought it to be clean and quiet. This year our daughter enjoyed the indoor pool and they have added a buffet breakfast with biscuits, gravy, eggs and a meat. Also, juice and coffee or tea.
It is also next door to the Public House restaurant which is new in the last year and we liked it. Also, only two or three blocks walk to the downtown area.
Thanks so much for staying with us again! And thanks for noticing the changes and upgrades to our breakfast program. I'll pass along your kind words to our Executive Chef and his team, and to our Housekeeping staff. I'm also glad you enjoyed the Public House--I ate there last week myself and loved it! Have a great spring!
A quick 1-night trip for Easter was delightful. Clean, comfy room, with some lovely details you won't find at a big chain. An Easter basket for my son was waiting outside our room door Easter Sunday morning. The Easter Bunny was at breakfast buffet for pictures, handing out candy to all. And an egg hunt by the duck pond for the little kids was cute. All complimentary. I've stayed here before, as well as other newer, flashier places in the area. For the money and service, none compare to the Meadowbrook. We're already booking our room for when Thomas the Tank Engine comes to Tweetsie RR in June! - Hilary W.
I'm so glad you enjoyed Easter at the Meadowbrook! We all have so much fun planning Easter "secrets"! Our Executive Chef and his team make a festive breakfast and put out a Bunny Cake with Easter cupcakes to munch on or take home. Our Front Desk staff prepares Easter Bunny Baskets and quietly places them in front of children's doors in the wee hours of the morning.
This year one of our hard-working housekeepers volunteered to be the Easter Bunny. He was adorable, wasn't he??? It was a delight to see that even adults loved the chocolate carrots, eggs, and bunnies he passed out at breakfast! The impromptu Easter egg hunt was just darling, and I think we may try to add that next year, as well.
Thanks for letting us know!
