Spent our Wedding ANniversary Here

4.6 on October 25, 2017

We were welcomed, BY NAME, into this romantic, mountain-top inn. The food was the BEST we have ever had, with every course a companion to the previous. We had a couples massage by the wonderful fireplace. Our only drawback was having to pay for two nights due to being in OCT. However, the inn keepers worked out a cancellation for us to only stay one night (two would be wonderful IF we could have afforded it). The bed was restful and the room was spacious. We were able to sneak into the basement and watch some football, too! Yeah! The town down below is a great and romantic getaway for fun shopping, as well.

20th Anniversary Weekend at Gideon Ridge

4.8 on April 28, 2015

We stayed there over the weekend. I cannot say enough good things about the facility, staff, and dining experience. Everything was over the top. We had the best time Friday evening just exploring the grounds, enjoying afternoon tea and getting to know each other all over again. Dinner Friday night was fabulous, breakfast both Saturday and Sunday absolutely made the trip. The gardens and views are magnificent. This was a perfect getaway.

Immaculately kept property inside and out. Very attentive staff and fantastic food.

Best Places we have ever stayed!!

4.6 on June 13, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the Cedar Cottage, which is separate from the Main House, in January 2011. It snowed the whole weekend. We have never been happier. My husband wanted to pick up our things and move there!! We are going back in the fall for our anniversary and probably again in the winter for the snow. Christoper the Inn Keeper was WAY above the normal in service and friendliness. He really helped make our stay something special. If you have never been to this Inn you ought to go at least once. Food was great also.
