We had a nice weekend experience at Chetola. The people were nice and the grounds were beautifully decorated with Christmas lights- had a nice and warm Christmas feel. I think we were expecting our room to be a little nicer...

This adorable little Inn is practically on Main Street of Blowing Rock! Room 7 was very quaint with rustic decor. The location is excellent, and it was so much fun to walk around and look at all the shops and try some tasty restaurants. As far as accommodations, I enjoyed the homey feel, versus a chain hotel...it made our mountain trip more fun and authentic. If your stay includes children, there is a public park on the other side of Main St.
During our stay we also visited a few antique shops in the area. We also enjoyed sifting through rocks/minerals at Doc's Rocks Gem Mining (kiddos loved it). Other activities included a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Linnville Caverns, which was a 45 minute drive through gorgeous mountainside. We took a tour of the caves and it was fun for both kids and adults. We wanted to hike to Linnville Falls afterward, but it was rainy. On our way home we stopped at Linnville Winery for a tasting. Yum!
As for food: We got coffee from Camp Coffee Roasters at the end of Main St. every morning. We tried Southern Comfort for breakfast and it was affordable and the food was good. Blowing Rock Brewery has delicious food and beer. Bistro Roca was pricey and more formal, but it was easily the most delicious food and cocktails I've had in a long time (Black & Bleu Steak...omg).
It was all very picturesque (both the Inn and downtown!), and we'll definitely be returning for future stays at Blowing Rock. For the price and location, it can't be beat.

My husband and I always stay at this hotel every time we come up to Boone, which is quite often. We love it, it is very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the indoor heated pool is very nice and clean. We will pay more for a room at this hotel than to stay at another hotel for cheaper. Would recommend this hotel to everyone traveling to Boone and Blowing Rock.

The room originally assigned to us was very small and not well furnished, no place to put luggage. Fortunately they were able to give us a two room "suite". That suite is also sparsely furnished with poor lighting but the added space was pleasing. The lobby is very attractive, afternoon wine hour was very nice and breakfasts were good. The staff, while accommodating, were young (high school students) and unfamiliar with the town. It appears that the hotel is more useful for a one night stay rather than 3 or 4 nights as we were.

Great value. Planned to go skiing but conditions were not good so spent the day in Blowing Rock shopping and hiking the Glen Burney Trail then another going to Grandfathers Mountain and Boone. Staff recommended The New Public House which was wonderful and received a 10% discount. Only complaint was I stopped in to get coffee in the morning but none was made and there was no one in the reception area. Also I hate to see black in the grout in the shower but for the price, it would be worth staying again. Blowing Rock is a gem of a town!

A scenic repose on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock is named for town's iconic rock formation. Peruse the fine restaurants, galleries, and shops after hiking to the breathtaking lookout. Visitors can also ride a real steam engine on the Tweetsie Railroad or gallop the 25 miles of carriage trails at Denim King, Moses Cone's gilded age estate.
