My friends and I wanted to get away from it all to ring in my 30th and when we were looking for a place to stay, we found this cabin and fell in love. After booking, Mary was so pleasant to correspond with when I had any questions and, upon arriving, we found a welcome basket waiting for us! When we entered the cabin, we were in awe. The cabin is *just* as idyllic as you think it will be. We greatly enjoyed our time spent there and would absolutely recommend it to any others seeking a place to enjoy for their time in Morganton/Blue Ridge!
We arrived home a few hours ago and I was so excited to have the opportunity to write my review. From the surrounding beauty of nature at its fall best, to the oversized Better Homes and Gardens luxurious towels, this place was made for relaxing. We fished several times. I caught my very first rainbow trout!! My husband, of course, caught the biggest and the most, but hey, who cares. It was awesome!! We didn't do much cooking, but that kitchen is equipped for any meal one might want to cook. I was on vacation too, so we ate out most of the time.
The king-sized bed was so comfortable, and the gas fireplace was a pleasant surprise. We were there for seven wonderful days and I can't think of any place I'd rather make a return visit to.
We're both in our 70's and loved that it wasn't a steep, slippery climb to the river, so fishing was easy for us. We saw a nonpoisonous water snake ingesting a frog or something on the rocks, but we didn't bother him and he didn't bother us. After his meal was ingested, he left. We also watched a large heron catch and eat a small rainbow trout across the creek while we fished. Late one afternoon, I happened to look out the window in the very nicely appointed laundry room, that I wish I could take back to my house, and watched a flock of 10 wild turkeys crossing the yard. I can't describe how peaceful and quiet it was there.
Apparently, there was some damage to the railroad track across the river, during one of the rainstorms that came through and the twice-daily train run didn't happen so we only saw it a couple of times. It only runs during the day and if you're inside, it's not disturbing. I'm really into adult coloring and it didn't even make me color outside the line.
I just want to thank the owner, James, for making this piece of paradise available for vacation renters. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable, quiet and the location is absolutely perfect. We've vacationed in the Blue Ridge, Ga. area for several years, and I'm just sorry it took us so long to find The River House! Try it, you'll like it.
