Experience the High Country
You’ve picked the right spot for an unforgettable mountain vacation! Riverbend Retreat is in the northern part of Ashe County, very near the New River State Park, where you can enjoy all the mountains have to offer – canoeing, tubing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, picnicking, and all the fresh air you can breathe. You’re also close to the Virginia Creeper – North Carolina and Virginia's premier mountain biking trail, which stretches 34 miles from Abingdon, down thru the lovely town of Damascus, along the Whitetop Laurel River and up to its highest point at Whitetop Station, near the NC state line. The Virginia Creeper Trail is open year round to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Don’t miss this ride – a blast for the whole family, with several bike rental shops to serve you.
In the High Country, gorgeous scenery awaits you at every turn. In the nearby mountain town of West Jefferson you have restaurants and terrific shopping, including antique stores and art galleries. There’s even a movie theater. This is small-town Americana at its finest.
Drive a little further to Boone or Blowing Rock, for an even wider assortment of dining, entertainment and shopping options. Tour the campus of Appalachian State University, or visit our craft breweries. And don’t forget to take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, for some of the country’s most awe-inspiring views. You’ll understand how our mountains got their name!
If you’re dreaming of a snowy mountain winter, you’ve also come to the right place. Enjoy sledding, snowboarding, skating – and of course skiing – all winter long. Or watch the snow fall softly and serenely outside, while you’re cozy in the cabin!
No matter when you visit, this peaceful Retreat will help you melt the stress of the city away!
