More Blowing Rock

Our trip to Blowing Rock was so much fun, I am just counting the days until we can go back again!  We stayed at The Ragged Garden the second night which is in the village of Blowing Rock.  The village is only three miles, but it is nice to be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants.

The Inn is rustic, circa 1930's I believe, covered in bark, as a lot of the older houses are in the area.  It is not fancy, somewhat rustic, but very nice.  We would stay here again.  The location is perfect, just a few blocks from Main Street.

In the summer months I imagine parking is difficult so being so close to everything is a big plus.  Every room is different.  We stayed in the very top floor in "Evergreen Garrett" which was nice and quiet.  Some of the lower floors are probably noisy.

The restaurant, The Best Cellar, is in the building and it is very good.  I liked The Game Keeper better, where we dined the night before, but would recommend this one too.  Reservations are a must.

We ventured out to the new Blowing Rock Museum on Main St.  It opened on Oct. 1st. As someone who spent my youth here, I can appreciate the history of this lovely small town.  More to come!
