“I love Blowing Rock,” she said in an interview, “and I love our decision to move here full time. I can’t believe it has already been 10 years that we have owned this lodging business.”
Debra and Jim McDowell celebrated a double anniversary on Tuesday. In addition to recognizing their decade of owning Mountainaire Inn and Log Cabins, they are celebrating 41 years of marriage this week and invited several fellow downtown merchants and Chamber of Commerce friends over for an outdoor soiree on Tuesday, catered by Woodlands BBQ.
