“Great location in downtown Blowing Rock.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We spent two nights at this small, family-run inn just off the main street in downtown Blowing Rock. It is one level, so no stairs to climb. It is an older inn, but the rooms have been remodeled. You can park your car in the lot and leave it there because restaurants, a park, shops, cafes, etc., are literally a hop and a skip away. The rooms are small, but clean. The decor is charming. We don't spend much time in our room anyway, so room size is not a concern for us. We just look for location, cleanliness, and warmth. The Homestead Inn hits all those marks. The added bonus was the beautiful garden that offered swings, picnic tables, and a beautiful cascading fountain. Between walking around downtown and sitting in the garden, we found we spent very little time in our room. Not sure it would've met our needs if we had children with us or for a longer stay; however, we definitely will be staying here again on our next trip to Blowing Rock.

Room Tip: We had Room 5, which had a jacuzzi tub, wood floors, a king bed, and a fireplace. It was in the cent...

This is a wonderful inn with very helpful owners. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are pretty and clean. Close to restaurants and shops. I wouldn't look any further, particularly if you ride a motorcycle. Karen H

A small motel that's been lovingly remodeled. Each room very up-to-date, spotless, attractive and reasonably priced. Hosts made us feel very welcome, blocking out two spaces for our four motorcycles and even provided cleaning rags! Highly recommended!

Stayed here for one night on our way down the Blue Ridge parkway. Had a very warm welcome from the innkeeper and a lovely room with a jacuzzi bath, two double beds and a fireplace. Didn't need the fireplace as it was very hot! We loved Blowing Rock and would definitely stay at The Homestead Inn again if we were in the area.

If you are looking for a clean and quiet yet convenient place to stay in Blowing Rock, look no further. Trust me - I spent two hours looking at EVERY "motor lodge" motel in the area (walked in rooms). This is the best BY FAR. (Unless you want to spend over $200-$300 a night at the high end lodges). The rooms and bathrooms are all newly redone - VERY clean and beautiful. Caroline at the front desk was SO patient and kind. I traveled with an EXTREMELY particular mom and German grandmother - so you can imagine. Caroline took her time with them and made them feel at home and special. They raved about her and the cuteness of the place. The gardens are lovely and you can tell this family takes pride and love what they do. I am a Trip Advisor review addict but this is my first review - that's how good they were and how lovely the place was. Don't waste your time anywhere else. I will come back for a romantic stay with my husband for sure. Thank you, Caroline!!!

We stayed here for graduation, and we will return. Our family had three rooms and they all were cozy, clean, comfortable, and uniquely decorated. It is amazing how Robert has remodeled the rooms, and Caroline was quite helpful and pleasant in the office. It was great to walk a few steps to shop and eat in downtown Blowing Rock.

This was our first stay at the Homestead Inn and we will definitely return. We were there for graduation and our family had three rooms. All rooms were cozy, clean, and comfortable.

Room Tip: We loved room 4, but all rooms are uniquely decorated.
