A Quaint Garden Inn

Blowing Rock 252A quaint little place called The Azalea Garden Inn is located in Blowing Rock, NC. The owners work tirelessly on their gardens so that visitors enjoy their stay at the inn. I love this place. It’s chock full of personality.

Lots of pots laid on their sides, paths to explore, interesting sayings, and window boxes galore to explore.

Blowing Rock 181I’ve done quite a few post on this little inn and Blowing Rock. If you search The Azalea Garden Inn on my search feature, you’ll find all the post.

The Azalea Garden Inn now has a beautiful website.

    I’d much rather stay at a place like this than a big chain hotel, no mater how elegant. In fact the last hotel I stayed in had plastic foliage in the lobby. I think NOT!!

  5. Their gardens are so pretty and inviting! It looks like a very relaxing place! How do you come up with your ideas for feature stories?
    They are so pretty but the owners work tirelessly to make it happen.

    I have more ideas than there are days to write them. NC is blessed with gardens private and open to the public. I could visit a new place every day and would if I could. I’ve been trying to get over to the community of Old Salem and take pictures of their gardens. Maybe next week.

    That first photo is really great! I can’t believe the Black-eyed Susans are blooming already. A few of my coneflowers have bloomed, but none of the Black-eyed Susans.

    Gee Whiz! That’s a beautiful place. I could spend an entire weekend just taking in the grounds.
