Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Such a perfect place for five couples to meet and relive the past. Nice gathering spots, great morning coffee, great afternoon tea and the food was great. The service and friendly staff was the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: Sunrise suite has the view!

We just returned from a two night stay at Gideon Ridge Inn and had dinner there both nights. The food was delicious and service was excellent. I highly recommend a stay here and we will definitely be return customers.

We were a group of five couples, all retired military, who got together to have a "mini" reunion. In sum, we had a wonderful time in a wonderful setting. Staff was friendly and very efficient. Each room was nicely appointed and spacious. My wife and I stayed at the Sunrise Suite and all of us would meet there every evening on the patio for pre dinner cocktails. Beautiful sunrises and vistas. The property is fairly old, so you see stuff that has to be done for upkeep, but you have to look hard for those items. All in all, a great experience.

Room Tip: Sunrise View is a great place to watch the sun come up, as well as using the patio for an afternoon...

My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate my birthday. We had never been here before, but it was amazing! The views from the parking lot, dining room, and stone porch are all impressive. The Inn also had a mossy trail you could walk, and the grounds had plenty of little romantic nooks with metal chairs. When we arrived at the Colonial room, there were chocolate-covered strawberries and a small bottle of white wine waiting for us. The bathroom was well designed and came with Aveda bath products. The room also had 2 plush robes and 4 over-sized pillows. The electric fireplace kept us cozy at night, and the porch off of our room and screen windows allowed us to take advantage of the cool breezes during the day. Although the breakfast in the morning wasn't unique (choice of eggs, breakfast meat, toast and grits or pancakes / French toast and breakfast meat), it was substantial and well-seasoned. Every staff member we interacted with was professional, friendly and seemed happy to be there. The Inn also had complimentary beverages (pop, coffee, water) available 24/7 in a pantry area. Rooms don't have TVs, and cellphone service is a bit spotty, so come here expecting to blissfully disconnect from the high-paced world. Overall, highly recommended!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Colonial room, which had a large comfortable King sized bed, electric fireplace, an...

Excellent service and beautiful rooms. We stayed at the Sunrise suite which is adjacent to the Inn with a separate entrance. Unique. Very private.
Love the location and the town of Blowing Rock .

My husband and I spent a wonderful night at Gideon Ridge Inn for his birthday recently.The Inn Keeper We stayed in the Victorian room. The beautiful furnishing, fireplaces in the bedroom and bathroom, and the Japanese soaking tub all made for a comfortable stay. All of the rooms are unique and lovely. You really can't go wrong. My favorites are the Victorian (described previously), Old Master (no large tub) but beautiful furnishings, fireplace, and patio, and the Grandfather View and the Sunrise View for the exceptional view. The restaurant, where we enjoyed dinner and breakfast, is top-notch, and it shares the great view.
