We just returned from a quick trip to Blowing Rock, NC, one of my favorite places in the entire world! We made a trip here last October and blogged about it then. This trip we stayed at the Gideon Ridge Inn, which is just outside of town, on the ridge that overlooks Grandfather Mountain and a host of other mountains. Needless to say, we had perfect weather.
The Inn is delightful and I am sure we will stay here again. It is a nice combination of rustic charm and luxury, not over the top but very nice. Great views from every room. The house was built in 1941 and has not been altered much.
We dined here one night and loved the food and the atmosphere.
I cannot wait to go back! We may find time in early 2013 to get here. It is about a 4 hour drive so it is not close, but the drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway is so relaxing and enjoyable. Enjoy your Friday!
