I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The owner is so caring and sweet and full of great advice about touristy and secret locally-known things to do. The actual house and rooms are beautiful - well-appointed and clean with great views. We will be back and recommend to others. (Also we went in peak leaf season- amazing!)

Wonderful hospitality greeted us at the end of an 8 hour drive. Our upstairs room was perfect (spotless, beautiful and comfortable) and the sound of the river was soothing. Rondi served wine and cheese on the deck and we enjoyed delightful conversations with her and some fellow guests. Restaurant and activity recommendations were spot on. Everywhere we looked in the...

We recently stayed at the River House for the first time and loved the experience. We aren't typically B&B people but really enjoyed the conversation with everyone we met.

I have thoroughly enjoyed several stays on the main level of the inn. However, my favorite room is the Dirty Dancing Room, one of the two downstairs rooms. The room is just above the river (maximum river sound). Just outside the door, on a private deck, are two cushioned lounge chairs as well as two cushioned patio chairs. I found... More

We have stayed here several times, generally in the autumn. The rooms are excellent! I especially love the River Runs Through it room with a little private deck, low down to the river.

“The Dirty Dancing Room was our favorite! It has a porch situated directly over The Hickory Nut Gorge.”
  • The beautiful view from our private porch and room window.
  • It was our 15th anniversary! We found this welcome sign in our room!
  • And fresh flowers!
  • This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!
  • We spent a lot of time listening to the rushing water sound and relaxing on the covered porch!
