Third stay at Gideon in 6 years and we'll definitely be back. I recommend the Cedar cottage for couples, as long as you don't mind walking up and down steps. It's separate form the main house and feels more private. We've stayed in the house too, those rooms are also great. We tried the restaurant for dinner for the first...

This was our second stay at Gideon Ridge Inn. We love it! The setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains is beautiful. The inn is rustic and cozy. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The staff is very hospitable. We will definitely stay again.

There was obviously a problem with your stay, and for that, we are truly sorry. It is our overriding goal to make every guest's stay as perfect as we can make it. In this case, there was no communication regarding these issues between the guests and the staff from check-in to the next morning when they left. The Grandfather View...

We had a recent gathering of extended family cousins. We had the whole inn to ourselves. The food was wonderful,staff extremely helpful, and location beautiful. The rooms are large well furnished and beds very comfortable with premium linens. We could not have been more pleased with our time at Gideon Ridge Inn.

Very comfortable and quiet, fantastic views, relaxing. Beautiful, classic bathrooms. The breakfast was good, not great, but I'm not complaining. All in all, well worth the high price. We will be back.

VERY amazing weekend getaway with my fiance.

I stayed at The Gideon Ridge November 4-6 and shared The Grandfather View Suite with one of my friends. We loved this room and mentioned that the staff/ owners had thought of all the little things that make for a pleasant stay. There were plenty of pillows, with non feather included, which was nice due to feather allergies. The towels...
