We come every year for Thanksgiving but couldn't make it this year so came a little early. It was magical. The 30's and 40's music was perfect for the setting, the food was wonderful the views spectacular. As my teenager says " It just makes me happy".

We have stayed at Gideon Ridge several times now, and always enjoyed it. The food is great, the staff impeccable, and the views and the atmosphere provide a wonderful retreat. A great place to relax and get away. The Sunrise Suite provides an incredible view of the gorge below, both from the private patio, and from the sitting room. In...

We were given a night at Gideon Ridge Inn from our daughters to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our expectations were high and they were absolutely met! The room, the views, the private outdoor porch, & the hosts who paid special attention to detail made our stay a great memory! We will certainly go back. We enjoyed our meal at...

We had a very nice experience at this lovely Inn. The food was excellent and the views outstanding. Several of the rooms have been renovated and are quite charming. Unfortunately, our room, the Carriage Room, particularly the bathroom, is in need of renovation! Has great potential. Some of the best hiking ever was nearby. Beautiful trails, well maintained. Great restaurants...

We stayed at the Gideon Ridge Inn as part of our wedding anniversary trip. Gideon Ridge was a great experience. The Inn is very beautiful with an amazing view. Our room, which was the Carriage Room, was huge and included both a large jacuzzi and gas fireplace that warmed the room. We even had our own private entrance to the...

Relaxing inn with 10 unique rooms to satisfy many tastes. We enjoyed an upstairs room with a beautiful mountain view. The inn was very comfortable, and we especially enjoyed dinner on the porch. Breakfast and dinner were outstanding.

We were making our way south on the Blue Ridge Parkway and chose Blowing Rock as a good stop off point. We were so pleased we chose Gideon Ridge for our 1 night stay. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The welcome was friendly and we went straight out onto the veranda to enjoy the complimentary light...

My wife and I have been coming for many years at the same time in October staying in the same room each time. We exhale as we enter the Inn and know that our downtime has begun. We enjoy good wine, great food, relaxing accommodations, meticulous service from the staff, and time to focus on each other away from the...

We spent three nights along with 2 other couples at the Gideon Ridge Inn in early October. It was an excellent experience. The Inn is located high on a ridge with an almost 270 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's about a mile outside of Blowing Rock - which we think of as a big positive. Rooms were...
