The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was perfect for us, lots of fresh fruit and breads with a hot offering that varied day to day. There were fresh baked cookies and brownies in the afternoon...Yum. The room was comfortable and pretty. The bed wasn't the most comfortable I've been in but it didn't slow me down. The bathroom had been remodeled and was very attractive, but missing shelves and hooks that would make it more useful. Be sure to bring your own shampoo as there are no little ones. The location is fabulous, right across the street from Friday live concerts at Ragged Inn and great pizza at Mellow Mushroom. Main Street is only a few steps up the hill. There was a little parking lot noise but not late so no problem. They have a private parking lot, which is great. We have a large vehicle and the lot is very tight, so bring the little car if you have the option.

Room Tip: Dogwood room has extra space if you are sharing with a child it works.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Wildflower Room. Very comfy bed, pretty room, delicious breakfasts. The innkeeper and her helpers were very friendly - Annie gave us especially good advice about hiking nearby. Located in a very central location just a few steps from good restaurants, shops, ice cream, and the pretty town park. Much appreciated, since we were on a motorcycle and enjoyed walking to dinner each night. We had a great visit.

This was the last of 5 bed and breakfasts we had in North Carolina. It was the most expensive and comfortably the worst. There were no nice little touches in the room, for example sachets of shampoo. The shower curtain was mouldy as was the sealant around the bath tub. One of the windows was held shut by 2 pieces of wood. We only discovered this when they collapsed at 2.30am and frightened us half to death. The 'receptionist' was nice but seemed to be very disorganised - booking by phone was a trial. We left with the impression that the owners were in it only for the money. If they were in a place less popular that Blowing Rock they would suffer.

We arrived in Blowing rock for Labor Day weekend and checked into the Maple Lodge. The rate was nearly $200 per night. The owner immediately informed us that there was no way we could get dinner in town at a restaurant without a reservation and then proceded to tell us that there were no reservations available. We scoffed at that statement and the relationship immediately went downhill.
After checking in we went out and walked around town and found a very nice resaurant where there was no wait and we had fresh mountain trout. Upon returning to the Maple Lodge and going to our room we discovered that there was very little toilet paper and the desk was closed till morning. We had to go out and get some. In the morning we were awakened by the trash truck emptying the trash cans she had placed right under our open window. At breakfast it was clear that the owner was anxious to get rid of us.
This was not the interaction that we had with other businesses in town where we found the people to be friendly and welcoming. There are many attractive lodgings in Blowing Rock that are much more affordable and friendly!!!

We were looking for a last minute get-away within a 3 hour drive from home. We decided Blowing Rock would be the perfect place for a much needed last minute escape. We found ourselves at the Maple Lodge. What a fantastic location and interesting history behind this Inn. It can not be any closer to the quaint downtown. Maple Lodge is located just off of Main Street on Sunset...maybe half a block. It was nice to find a B&B right there in downtown. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was spacious. I especially liked that they had an ice maker with a water hot and cold dispenser in the dining/Sun room that guests have access to 24/7.
This trip ended all too soon but I will definitely return to Blowing Rock AND Maple Lodge.
