Canyons of Blowing Rock will close its doors on Sunday, Feb. 4, and will reopen in the spring as Ridgeline, under new ownership.

The Watauga Democrat reports Canyons owner Bart Conway saying it was time to move on.

Conway is selling the restaurant to Rich and Faisuly Scheurer, who plan to renovate the restaurant and re-open in April.

There is a celebration of Canyons and Conway on Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. and Sunday until 5 p.m.

The location has operated as The Bark, Big Dollar, Holly’s Tavern and The Emporium. It became Canyons in the summer of 2001 and is famous for its wrap around deck offering great views of the Grandfather Mountain, the Johns River Gorge and sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
