On arrival the problems started first the closet doors would not open and we had to find the maintenance man to get it open. I went to dinner and came back to the room around 10:30 pm to realize the drapes in both. The front window and patio doors were broke at the rod and would not close all the way, fortunately I had large paper clips to close then for some privacy as there was no one on duty as the office was closed. In the three day stay they never replaced or refreshed the 1 bar of soap for 2 guests, shampoo, Kleenex, or toilet paper. On the last day of my stay even though the breakfast area and lobby were scheduled to be open at 7:30am no one was there so. I had to go elsewhere and pay extra for an included breakfast, and come back for a receipt as this was a business trip and I must have a detailed receipt for my company. At what this stay cost the service should have been better. Next time in Blowing Rock I will stay way from the properties of this group, even if it means an extra 20 minuet drive to work in downtown, and I am there a minimum of 20 nights a year

We are sorry to hear that your stay was not up to your standards. Our office closes at 9 o-clock each night, but an after-hours number is given at check-in for any requests the guest may have. Again, we apologize for your stay, but hope we can make it up if you decide to visit again. We have a lovely, accommodating staff that is trained to provide our guests with the best experience possible.

I absolutely love this place. It is the perfect place for a weekend get away. My husband and I have stayed here twice on our anniversary. We walk to Twigs restaurant that is right beside of the Village Inn, to eat supper or just hang at the bar. Twigs is very pricey but it is delicious. Anyway back to the village inn it is very clean and the bed sleeps amazingly. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here!

Our daughter gave us a one night stay at this darling hotel....We entered the lobby with its massive fireplace and was greeted by a lovely young lady. She informed us that there was a FREE wine and snacks from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Also, our breakfast was FREE....We entered a beautiful room with an attached side room housing 2 lounge chairs and a table and lamp so as not to disturb your other party if they were sleeping and/or watching TV.Our patio door invited us out to a beautiful brook with barbeques and tables along the brook. In our room was also a refrigerator and microwave. A 2 hour drive from Greenville, South Carolina...Next time we book, will stay a few days...room rates are reasonable....Factory outlet stores and darling boutiques and restaurants in the downtown area. I WOULD NOT recommend The Outback....I think their food fell into a salt shaker!!!!

Room Tip: All roons faced the brook in the back as far as we could tell....

We spent last weekend (March 28-30) in Blowing Rock. Since we had stayed at the Village Inn previously and know they have pet friendly rooms. We booked a room and, again, were delighted. The room was small, but plenty of room for us! We enjoyed having a patio out back so our Sophie could "do her business" without us having to get suited up to go for a walk!

The fact that there is a pathway to Twigs restaurant made it easy to walk to a nice dinner without having to brave the fog in the car

Our room was spotless and the beds were VERY comfortable.

We will be back!!

Room Tip: We've stayed in two different pet friendly rooms, both were great! Room 118 has a little sittin...

The property manager was very helpful with our reservation. She had no problem with us bringing two dogs, and the pet fee was reasonable. Unfortunately, the "fenced in back yard" is only partially fenced in. Some road noise and construction.

We stayed two nights. Rooms were much smaller than other similar places we have stayed in BR. Rooms were very clean and had nice ammenities. Walls in the rooms are a little thin - can hear the tv of your neighbor. And cleaning crew was a little loud in the mornings walking by the room. Front desk lady at check-in was not very friendly, but the younger lady that was there later in the evening was very pleasant. Will probably try somewhere else next time. The Homestead Inn was very nice and the rooms were much larger. And it was a shorter walk to Main Street. Seemed expensive for the size and location.

This was our second stay; last one over 7 years ago so was anxious to arrive. There was a mishap with the reservations but it did get straightened out. The room was clean and comfortable and loved the oversized chairs. The room feels like a bed and breakfast room. Wine and cheese reception was welcoming with a fire. Breakfast choices was more than adequate. Would return for sure but would keep in mind to call a few weeks ago to confirm reservation.
