This Inn may have been a gem at one time in history but no longer! It is now an old shoe that ownership has not taken care of, and they seem oblivious to that fact. Our room had to be changed on arrival as half the electricity didn’t work, and even after the change, they still couldn’t get lights to work. The elevator has construction tape across it so that doesn’t function either. It’s time for this Inn to close but until then I’d recommend not staying here!

Room tip: Avoid this Inn completely!

Thank you for reviewing. We do apologize that there were electric issues during your stay, along the hallway where your original room and the other room was located, and we have since corrected those. The elevator has been out of service, despite our continual efforts to have the repair made. Unfortunately, as in many industries, the company we have been working with has had their own struggles in getting the needed parts and staff, so we are working patiently with them as they try to get the elevator going again. We do reach out to all guests in advance of their stay to ensure they are able to take 1 or a maximum of 2 flights of stairs before they arrive, so we can otherwise accommodate them if they aren't able. Many historic hotels don't have elevators at all, so we hardly feel that this is a reason to close the hotel, especially as we are happy to book guests on the first floor when needed and actively reach out to do so.

One can easily see that this old hotel was renovated 12 years ago but has not been well maintained since. The elevator has been broken since April 2022 and old parts are apparently not obtainable. The heating is spotty throughout the hotel with the rooms being so warm as to require air conditioning to offset it. The carpeted rooms and hallways need shampooing. No need to continue this review.

Room tip: Since elevator is broken, the first floor is best.

Thank you for reviewing. We do understand that historic hotel may not be for every traveler and we try to give an accurate representation of what guests can expect when coming to stay with us. Unfortunately, as with many other industries, the elevator company we are working with to make the needed repairs are having their own struggles and we are working patiently with them to machine the needed parts to make repairs. We do contact each hotel guest in advance of their stay to make sure they are able to take 1 or a maximum of 2 flights of stairs, and if they aren't we make accommodations for them to be in a first floor room.

Our historic hotel has different types of heating systems throughout, one of which is the original steam heat. We find this to be a charming bit of history, as there are not many hotels that still operate with steam heat, but we also have areas of the hotel in which we have more modern heating and air conditioning units as well, and we are always happy to move guests to another type of heating system if they aren't happy with the one in their room.

We tell guests if they are looking for a historic atmosphere and a unique experience, that is what we are offering. If they are looking for a modern hotel that's built on historic bones, we are not that. We often explain that to guests who ask questions about that when making their reservations, so they can decide if we are a good fit for what they are looking for, and encourage anyone making a reservation to ask as many questions as they'd like!

We booked here specifically because it's a historic hotel, so creaking floors, etc. are expected. The hotel is located about a 3 minute drive from the historic shopping/dining area and across the street from the Blowing Rock attraction. Agree with previous reviewers who say it needs a little TLC. There are some initial buzzkill things like the damaged roof over the entry drive-up and the still-broken elevator. Inside, some of the things done in the renovation detract from the historic feel of the space, i.e., cheesy plastic flowers hanging in the hallways, plastic flowers in the restaurant next to beautiful cut leaded glass and chestnut woodwork, and questionable taste in art prints. The check-in process was easy and the reception clerk very nice. The two young ladies running breakfast in the dining room were very pleasant, welcoming and efficient. The dining room is closed at other times, though. Our room was clean but the furnishings and fixtures were dated and the carpet was stained and needed cleaning. We weren't aware of the hotel's history until we arrived. Our room was on the third floor around the corner from the infamous room and my wife and I each slept with one eye open.

Thank you for reviewing! We, too, agree that some work needs to be done related to the roof of the porte cochere. Unfortunately, someone that wasn't affiliated with the hotel in any way drove under the porte cochere with a construction vehicle on the back of his truck and severely damaged it. Now, we are in a waiting game with his insurance company, engineers, adjusters, etc and hoping the work to make the repair will be scheduled soon. Until then, basic repairs to make the porte cochere safe have already taken place. Décor and furnishings will always be subject to each person's individual opinion, but we do appreciate your feedback and we're glad you felt that you felt your room was clean.

We're so happy our staff were pleasant and made you feel welcome!

Paid extra for a superior king with balcony overlooking golf course, which turned out to mainly overlook busy 4 lane highway with strip of golf course in distance. Room large but furnished with worn out furniture and rug. Breakfast was ok but not great, served in musty, poorly serviced room. We love old properties, but this was decrepit. Glad we only booked one night.

We are a historic hotel, and we do our best to accurately represent what to expect while staying with us. Guests that are looking for a unique atmosphere and historic experience would enjoy our hotel. Guests looking for a modern hotel build on historic bones will not find that at our hotel. The superior rooms are more expensive because they are quite a bit larger than the other room types, as well as having a private balcony with rocking chairs and a small table. The golf course does run alongside the road, so yes, the road is visible on the left side from the balconies. There are several guest photos posted on this website that show the views from the balconies, so we'd encourage guests to look at them if they have questions related to what they may see from their balcony rooms.

We do understand that aesthetics are a matter of opinion. The restaurant was fully renovated in recent years, with theming related to the American Chestnut, from which the majority of the hotel was originally built. It is the most requested venue on property for events and gatherings, due to the original chandeliers, original columns, original wood floors, and other historic elements.

I love unique places, without pretentious airs. We stayed three nights here and enjoyed the vibe of a grand hotel from yesteryear. We drank in the history of the place. It is just a stone's throw from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and beautiful downtown Blowing Rock... so lots to do. They include a fresh cooked breakfast every morning. The owner is very personable. We enjoyed the massive front porch.
