Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Hellbender Bed & Beverage has everything you need for a mountain getaway! A Hellbender is a large endangered amphibian found in the Blue Ridge Mountains, living mostly in clear and fast flowing mountain streams. One of the establishment’s goals is to bring more awareness to this beautiful local species, hence the name: Hellbender. Originally opening October of 2020 in downtown Blowing Rock, Hellbender is the perfect place for locals and travelers alike. Guests have the ability to eat great food, drink tasty cocktails, and snooze upstairs in one of the eight hotel rooms, with minimal effort!
We were able to catch up with Abby Carson, a manager at Hellbender. Abby stated the motivation for the restaurant being ‘(…) quick service, great food, almost like a pit stop, to get back outside and explore the beautiful outdoors that surround us’. Owners of Gideon Ridge, Bistro Roca & Antler’s Bar, and now Hellbender, Cindy and Cobb Milner have figured out the secret to success in the service industry: Experience!
