My husband and I needed a last minute get-away, so we booked a trip to Blowing Rock, NC. Our main mission was to escape the children and go snowboarding. I was extremely hesitant to book the Homestead Inn, because typically we stay in fancy hotels. Since our trip was unplanned and last minute, we decided to go on an adventure and save a few bucks.
I spoke with the Innkeeper, who guided me to trip advisor. My main concern was cleanliness. After looking at several places, my husband and I decided on the Homestead Inn, almost as a joke...expecting it to be terrible. It was not terrible at all. We loved it.
The Innkeeper looked like a California transplant, fresh off of a surf board. He was more than helpful, and down-to-earth. His wife was on vacation and he was left to tend the Homestead with his three sons, even with that, he was awesome. No lack in service at all.
Our room looked like a grandmother's bedroom, but was IMMACULATELY clean. Big plus. It was unique and cozy. The heating and air was outdated, but in great working condition. The bathroom looked new and renovated, with outstanding water pressure. The bedding was comfortable and clean. There WAS coffee, a coffee pot, a refrigerator, microwave, and flat screen tv...and NO bugs. The room was NOTHING like what we usually book, but it was great!
My husband and I spent our 2 days snowboarding, and our two nights at Six Pence Pub. Everything was in walking distance...except the snowboarding, which was just a short drive. I LOVED the fact that the snow was piled high and the town looked like Christmas in February. We are taking our children back in March for their birthday's, and we will most definitely stay at the Homestead Inn.
