We will definitely be staying here again! The inn keepers were very sweet and helpful. The room was nice and clean. The house keepers were also very nice and helpful. We will be recommending this place to everyone we know!

We traveled from Florida to Blowing Rock Christmas Day staying at the Homestead Inn with my brothers family. They have stayed here many times over the past 20 years as they are a family owned "pet friendly" inn. We traveled with our Australian Shepherd dog "Pup", who took off after getting spooked our 2nd day. He was missing for over 48 hours! Rob & Caroline helped search for Pup both days! The entire community did!! Merchants, newspaper, neighbors! The town we live in would have never rallied to help find him like the Blowing Rock community did. We were not going to leave town without Pup, and Caroline made sure we had a place to stay. The day he was spotted we were in Boone. We called Caroline and she and Rob raced to the spot to look for him. They were just as excited as we were when Pup was found! They are nice caring people who have a quaint inn. You won't be disappointed staying here! Enjoy your stay in Blowing Rock!

Room Tip: Nice fire places in some rooms!

We enjoyed our stay at the Homestead Inn and felt welcomed and appreciated for being there. The family that runs the inn are pleasant to deal with and the small town charm of the inn are almost from a time of days gone by. Many of the Blowing Rock hotels and inns were not open the second weekend of December but this one was and allowed our small dog to stay as well for only $10 extra per night. The lovely quilt and shams on the bed and the recliner in the corner made it feel like you were visiting in someone's home. If you are looking for the latest and best ammenities then you need to stay somewhere else. But for a homey feeling place within walking distance to great shops then this is a place you may want to check out.

Room Tip: Do not bring more than 1 vehicle since parking lot is small

We will never stay anywhere else again other than the Homestead Inn while in the Blowing Rock/Boone area!! My family and I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. We have stayed at the H.I. numerous times in the past seven years. Each spring and fall, we return to the Homestead Inn, often bringing with us family and friends. No one has been ever disappointed. After the first nights stay, our friends thank us for referring & introducing them to this beautiful inn. A few things that you will immediately notice are the quiet rooms which are immaculately cleaned and tastefully decorated - I feel like I am in my own little mountain cabin. The beds are extremely comfortable. We met the innkeepers, Caroline & Rob, and instantly fell in love with them! Whether it's the gorgeous flowers that surround the inn or the outdoor "water fall" that is the back drop to the picnic tables and swings........You too will think you have found a piece of heaven while staying at the Homestead Inn!

I've booked the Homestead Inn twice in two months. The first was for a family wedding. At the last minute we decided to stay in Blowing Rock rather than impose on the family cabin that was being used by my nephew, the groom. We were so thrilled with this little place that before I left I asked if they had availability for Columbus Day weekend, which would be an extra day off for me and the start of the fall color season. I waited until almost too late to book for the October stay, wanting to be sure both the weather and the finances would work out. The owners were able to give me and my son the same room we had the first time, which was perfect with 2 double beds, a fireplace and a jacuzzi. The beauty of this little hotel is it's mountain ambience, walking convenience, and spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. The love the owners have for this place is apparent in the care taken to both the inside and outside. Yes, we could have paid less and stayed in a chain hotel on 221 or in Boone. But we would have missed the memories of being able to walk home from a fun-filled pub night the night after the wedding in August, walking to Kilwyn's on a sunny afternoon for a scoop of praline ice cream on a homemade waffle cone, and best of all spending quality time with my grown son exploring back roads and hidden trails, hiking waterfalls and walking to Roca for the absolute best steak and egg brunch in the world. The memories are priceless, and staying in an idyllic setting at the Homestead helped to make it so. Will return. Again and again and again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the same room both times because we needed the double beds. My brother and his wife st...

On Sept. 28, 2011, we stayed at the Homestead Inn as part of a short, "regain our sanity" trip up to the mountains of NC. We knew we wanted to visit Grandfather Mountain, so in looking for a place to stay in fairly close proximity, my research led us to Blowing Rock. What a beautiful town! And, thanks to great reviews on Trip Advisor, we made a reservation at the Homestead Inn. The first thing that struck us when we arrived was the profusion of flowers. From the lovely gazebo near the front entrance, to the double swings by a small waterfall, to beautiful trees and hanging baskets of blooming geraniums, it was obvious that the owners had poured much work and much love into the landscaping. The room was beautifully decorated and included a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub which we really enjoyed. Even the towels and bed linens were luxurious and comfortable. We not only felt like honored guests -- we felt like family. You won't be disappointed in the Homestead Inn!

My wife Sue and I trailered our motorcycle up to ride the Parkway for four days and were lucky enough to find the Homestead Inn. When we pulled in the driveway, Rob immediately started helping me take the bike off the trailer while Caroline was showing Sue all the best places to eat and shop. They were so friendly we felt like we had known them forever. Then to find that the rooms were more reasonable than most downtown motels made the stay even better. We were impressed with the comfortable room, the fireplace, and the jacuzzi. We will definitely stay there when we return to ride. Ron Allbee, Longwood, Fl
