“I love the Stone Pillar”
Reviewed 29 August 2007

This is my regular choice in Blowing Rock when it has available rooms. The accomodations are comfortable, the breakfasts PERFECT, and the proprietor a wonderful and very gracious host. I travel extensively, and have found few B&Bs that begin to compare to this beautiful spot.

My husband and I stayed with the Stone Pillar in mid-September while on a furniture-buying trip to Hickory/Lenoir, NC. The inn occupies an 80-year-old house and is in excellent condition. We stayed in the Hearthside Room, which the owner refers to as his nicest room. It has a king-sized bed, gas fireplace and balcony (balcony is shared with an adjacent room). The decor is somewhat modest, but homey. The bathrooms are small, most with stand-up showers only--but PLENTY of hot water (surprise!). There is little seating area in each room, so if you plan to hang out in your room, you will most likely do it on the bed. There is a living room/dining room combination with comfy chairs and a sofa in front of the fireplace for socializing or relaxing and comfortable wicker seating on the front porch. Breakfast was very good -- fruit, biscuits or toast, meat and fluffy scrambled eggs, juice and delicious coffee. The very best thing about the inn is it's location. It is just off Main Street in Blowing Rock, a five-minute (at most) walk to the other end of town. All restaurants and shops are super convenient, and you don't have to worry about parking. For that convenience, however, you do have to deal with some street noise. We slept with the windows open, so you get all the noise from Main Street. Blowing Rock does roll up fairly early at night, but the Inn is directly across from Tijuana Fats, a very popular bar and restaurant, so you may have some late-night noise from there. And garbage pick-up is EARLY on Monday morning! If you are looking for a QUIET retreat, you may want to stay somewhere not in the Main Street area. While it is not as upscale as other B&B's you will find in the area, the Stone Pillar is very comfortable, clean and enjoyable. The new owner has been there a year and as time goes on, I expect it to continually improve into a 5-star Inn.
