About 116 Globe Road

GO BACK IN TIME TO A MORE GENTEEL ERA. CIRCA 1889 SPRING HAVEN INN has been offering hospitality to visitors since its origin as a stagecoach tollgate inn on the Old Yonahlossee Turnpike. Later it was moved to its site across from St. Mary's of the Hills Church. On a sloping grassy corner of Main Street and Globe Road, this cedar-shake home has 6 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths, some with claw-footed tubs. Four massive Grandfather Mountain stone fireplaces grace the parlor and den and 2 bedrooms. You can imagine your great-grandparents rocking long ago on the covered front porch that overlooks the gently sloping wide grassy lawn up to Main St. In the CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT, the inn is adjacent to the famous 19th & 20th Century American painter, Elliot Daingerfield's Edgewood Cottage & the elegant Blowing Rock Art & History Museum. Renovate the inn to a new destiny or imagine a different future for the gorgeous site. There is no buildable site to compare to in the central business district of Blowing Rock.
