Found this gem of an Inn via Tripadvisor looking for a place to stay on the way out east. Wow - what a beautiful place. Excellent place for couples with the views, food, atmosphere, service, and rooms to make it a very romantic and relaxing get away. Very short drive into Blowing Rock. Afternoon tea was great and the breakfast was off the charts. The restaurant on property is only open Tuesday-Sunday so we visited their sister restaurant Bistro Roca in downtown and was not disappointed with the food or wine choices. Planning another trip soon just to try the restaurant at the Inn. If you are a fan of Inns and B&B's this is a great place for couples young to old!
