Absolutely the Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the past week at "Stones" and I truly can't say enough good things about it. It is literally a block & a half from Blowing Rock's quaint Main Street which is home to lots of restaurants, shopping and local artisans. An abundance of beautiful hiking trails are either within walking distance or a short drive away on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. The 2 BR/2 Bath floor plan of Stones is well thought out & easily accommodated my husband, myself & two adult children. While most of our meals were eaten out, we did cook one night in the well equipped kitchen. And there is a washer/dryer in the house. The house is spotless & spacious, the grounds are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are big and the fireplace is warm & cozy. Stones will definitely be our go to place to stay on future visits. I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!

Great location and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This is a small, well-kept cottage in an awesome location in Blowing Rock. So convenient to everything. It is hard to overestimate the convenience. This is not a commodious accommodation, but it is great for a long weekend or short stay and well-stocked and nicely done. We will certainly be back.

Quaint, clean, ideally located for visiting Blowing Rock

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful getaway weekend to view the foliage. Small kitchen, so enjoying the restaurants was our decision over cooking in. The fire pit wasn't working, but I am sure if we would have called it would've been fixed. We had plenty of other things to do though, so we did not call. Beautiful little place, nicely decorated with local purchases. We are two couples who meet a few times a year for getaway weekends. Perfect place for us. A double instead of the twins would have been ideal but honestly it didn't matter - everything else was perfect.
