This is an old fashioned motor court that is situated conveniently close to the quaint town of Blowing Rock. It’s within walking distance to restaurants, shops, a playground, hiking trails. Just park the car and forget about it.
The rooms are small but well appointed.
The outdoor fire pit is a great place to gather in the evenings. The staff are friendly and helpful. They also have cabins for families and honeymooners to enjoy.

The staff, and who I believe to be the owner were very friendly, and informative of the area. Within minutes I was checked in, and headed to my room with a few restaurant recommendations and coupons. The lobby has a washer and dryer available as well as coffee, and water. The room was very clean, and comfortable. Inside the room there is binder full of local history, and nearby restaurants, shops, and activities to look into. It is in a convenient area in downtown Blowing Rock with tons of restaurants, shops, and taverns in walking distance. There is a breakfast restaurant right across the street. Not to mention, the price is pretty good compared to other hotels in the area.

We initially rented a cabin through another rental agency and when we arrived we were not only very disappointed because the online pictures were deceiving, but the place was filthy and the property way too steep for young children. I needed to find immediate, alternate arrangements for our family camping trip. I called Mountainaire Inn hoping we could find last minute accommodations for that same day. Not only did Debra welcome me and my family to come down right then, they set us up with a clean cabin rental next to the river and took great care of our family. She is absolutely wonderful and a doll! The cabins are older but that was fine for us. We come to the mountains to be outdoors. The grounds were exceptional and manicured, with steps down to the river, campfire for roasting marshmallows, the cabin had its own charcoal grill, porch swing with fairy lights and big rocking chairs. They take great care of their property. Great family time spent and I felt safe with my children for our stay. We still had to watch them closely of course as the river runs right next to the Laurel cabin. So beautiful! We will definitely return soon!

We booked two nights in July for a mountain getaway and stayed in the Signature Romance cabin, directly adjacent to the motel. Location is right on the edge of downtown so we were able to walk everywhere. The cabin was clean and had a jacuzzi tub and fireplace (not to be used in the summer). There was coffee and a coffee pot in the cabin but we didn't need so much so we popped over to the common room near the lobby and got cups of coffee instead. Note: it would have been awesome if they had lemonade or ice tea in the afternoons. There was miscommunication about cleaning our room because we said we didn't need service, but they serviced the room anyway. One night while sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch, we accidentally locked ourselves out. Luckily we were able to call them and one of the owners let us in. The fire pit was nice, and I assume a bigger lure in cooler weather. When we went for breakfast at the Mexican restaurant across the street, we mentioned we were staying here and got a discount. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here.

we were in Blowing Rock just one night and it immediately became our favorite of the trip. Mountainaire Inn is on beautiful Main Street and within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We stayed in Cabin 5. Beautifully decorated and landscaped. Everything you need is provided.. coffee, dishware, small refrigerator, D/W, sink, jacuzzi tub, FP, king bed. The entire grounds of the Inn are meticulously maintained and full of blooming flowers. Hugh and Debbe were friendly and informative. Across from front office is an inviting garden seating area. Of course, when checking in, masks are required. There was no on-site breakfast served but across the street is El Rincon who served a great breakfast. They also serve L/D. There are many lovely restaurants throughout town. We had dinner around the corner at the Speckled Trout. Great beer/wine, good menu. We really enjoyed sitting outside and watching folks go by. Staff there are very friendly!! I highly recommend a stay at Mountainaire Inn for your visit to Blowing Rock!!

We made a last minute decision with a small window of time to go see the fall leaves in Blowing Rock. We rarely get advance notice that we can get away. The fact that we could get 2 nights in the peak season of the fall leaf peak season was incredible enough, but to find this family owned little inn in the heart of activity and quaint places within walking distance to it’s location a pleasant bonus. We had a late check-in due to work hours detaining us, we called and made sure they knew we had a delayed arrival, as we checked in, the owner asked if we had wine, my husband grinned and said yes, she asked if we had plastic wine glasses, he grinned and said yes, she handed him two glasses and said “drinking wine from a plastic cup is so uncivilized” and they enjoyed a nice laugh. We laughed as well, because we had that discussion prior to leaving our home. We could not be happier with this charming little inn, no frills, but clean, and location was perfect. We will return.

You're last minute decision sound like it was a perfect get away after the work week. Our wine glasses are always here for you to use. Our housekeepers do an amazing job with keeping our rooms and cabins clean. Come back soon!

My boyfriend and I spent four nights at this resort this past weekend. We had originally booked three nights and we decided about a week before we left to extend our stay and additional night. He emailed back and forth the inn keeper and although the cabin we were staying in was booked already for the fourth night we decided to say in a less expensive room in the inn and emailed her to make that 4th night reservation. When we arrived she did not have the reservation booked and did not have a room at the rate she quoted us available. She did have the most expensive cabin they have available for that night. We decided to still stay there, but she did not offer us any discount even though it was proven by email that she forgot to book our room for us for the last night stay.
To top it off, one morning we got up every early and went on a fly fishing trip. I forgot my Invisalign trays on my nightstand. When we returned, they were gone. The cleaning staff through them out. Again the inn keeper did noting to try and resolve the problem. Saying the staff didn’t see them and did not throw them out, then had the nerve to ask why I didn’t put them in a case. I will acknowledge I should not have left them out, but it was a mistake during the morning rush to get out the door. The owners/inn keepers had multiple opportunities to try and do something to ease our dissatisfaction and they choose to do nothing. We will not ever return to this establishment as they do not care about their guests experience.
The rooms were clean and as advertised but when you or your staff makes a mistake you should attempt to make good on your errors.

We enjoyed this little mountain motel. It a was very clean and comfortable updated "motor court". It is not full of amenities or elegant but it is attractive and met our needs perfectly. The bathroom is small and it is clearly a "vintage" establishment. Parking is a little tight in front of the units but there are spaces in front of the office. The staff is very friendly and they have an area to get ice and coffee that felt clean and safe. I was impressed that they filled the ice maker with individually packaged bags of ice so you could "grab and go". I am sure at the height of the pandemic (and any time) this is more sanitary and efficient for guests but probably a lot of work. We were just around the corner from downtown Blowing Rock and able to walk to a restaurant for dinner and enjoy the shops. We even walked to the Moses H Cone Memorial Park, which has a beautiful lake (but I recommend driving-no sidewalks).

We wanted to take a trip to the mountains for snow and thought staying in a cabin would be a fun change of pace. The owners are lovely and very hospitable. The cabin was what you would expect from a cabin (it’s not a hotel). They provided a fire starter log each day and a pile of wood by the front door, so we could have daily fires. The rooms were nice and the beds comfortable, although my husband and I haven’t slept in a Queen/full bed in a while and it required more snuggling than we’re used to (romantic though). We stayed in the Moose Family cabin and it fit our needs as a family of four.
The reason I didn’t give it a 5/5:
1. The only bathroom is right off the kitchen, which is a little off-putting, and it had very little counter space, which is problematic for a family of four.
2. Where it is located is in downtown Blowing Rock. This could be seen as a plus or a minus, depending on what you want. I was hoping there would be good views and some privacy at the cabin and was really shocked when I realized it was right next to the inn and four other cabins (with no view). However, we grew to be very happy with the location because it was convenient to get to where we wanted to go and close to food and other attractions, so in the end, we weren’t unhappy with the location, but feel people should know what to expect when you get there.

Overall, we would stay there again. We had a great time.

Trips to the mountains during the winter is always a blast. We are glad that you and your family had a great time with us. Possibly if the bathroom was to tight for your family, you might be more interested in the Fishing family cabin or the mountain family cabin, as these have bigger bathrooms and also larger sink counters. Being on Main Street where everything is walking distance is always a plus, but you will have more of a street view. Another recommendation is our offsite river cabins. If you would prefer more privacy and a different scenery, the River Apple Cabin would be perfect for your family. Thankyou, we look forward to seeing you come back and stay with us!

Although the room was a little dated, the room was very clean, and the staff was great. They would come by in the afternoon and check on everyone. If we had wet towels from swimming in the creek, they would take them and dry them and fold them for us.

We loved it and can't wait to go back. The cabin we stayed in was at the very top of a steep grade, so make sure you have a vehicle with adequate traction and torque to make the climb. This place is perfect.
