Unfortunately, the New Public House & Hotel has closed its doors. However, the location is set to reopen under new owners and a new name: Hellbender Bed and Beverage and they are currently taking room reservations.
This is the first year that I did not have a traditional spring break, so instead, I took the time off to spend some time with DG. We generally like to go on spring break trips close to home, so this year we decided to head back to Blowing Rock. The first time we had been to Blowing Rock was 7 years ago for a day trip to see the leaves change. We were so excited to head back and stay at the New Public House & Hotel.
New Public House & Hotel – Accommodations
The 7 rooms in New Public House & Hotel are informally decorated with down comforters and Aveda products. The rooms have amazing natural light and the best walk-in showers and in-room Keurigs. I must tell you, my favorite feature was the clawfoot bathtub. I loved soaking in it each evening to warm up before bed. The desk space came in handy for my grad school assignments I worked on while we were there. We were in room 2 and it was incredibly spacious and comfortable. There is also an option to rent the cabin if more space is needed. See more on the individual rooms here.
New Public House & Hotel – Amenities & Location
New Public House & Hotel is located in downtown Blowing Rock and was walking distance to the quaint shops, restaurants, and park. When we arrived, we checked in at the hotel and just strolled through town looking at restaurant menus to get ideas for dinner, popping in and out of the shops, and checking out the local brewery.
The New Public House is a delicious restaurant in the downstairs of the hotel, which was really convenient. Breakfast at the New Public House is included in hotel stays and I loved the French toast with fresh berries. One our second day in town, we went hiking at Grandfather Mountain, but came back and had an appetizer from the dinner menu before heading out to do a bit more exploring in town.
New Public House is open for breakfast Monday-Saturday from 8:00-11:00am and Sunday 8:00-12:00PM. The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday for supper from 5:00-9:00.
DG and I truly felt like we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation while staying at The New Public House & Hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly, had great recommendations, and were helpful. We cannot recommend a stay here enough and hope to get back in the fall for another stay to see the leaves change again.
Check out what we packed for our trip here. Be sure to check back next week for a travel guide to Blowing Rock!
