If you are looking for one of the most beautiful BnBs in the Smokies/Blue Ridge, and for fantastic and amazing service, hard to beat River Dance. Callie and Dave are just the tip of the iceberg, but they certainly are the most amazing hosts you could ever imagine. The House is at the top of ridge, and the views are forever. The rooms are amazing, as is the company. The real bonus is how cool Hot Springs and the rest of Madison County is. Super interesting, particularly since I know nothing at all about it. You would be hard pressed to find a better experience. River Dance was an exceptional experience.
It takes a special kind of person to invite you into their home and treat you like family. Dave & Callie not only welcomed my wife and I like we were blood relations, they gave us the run of their homestead as well. I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay, and yes, I would place a return visit high on my bucket list. Did I mention the house and scenery were spectacular? - Paul M. and Marianne F.
We just spent the most relaxing weekend we've had in some time at River Dance! Dave and Callie have created an incredible Bed & Breakfast with an amazing view! It is so easy to relax as you sit on one of the beautiful porches and admire the view, sit beside the outdoor fireplace and become mesmerized in the flames, soak in the hot tub while looking out over the mountains, rock in one of the rocking chairs while listening to the sounds of nature and the babbling stream below, or simply resting in your room looking out the windows at the incredible scenic view. Callie and Dave frequently checked to make sure we had everything we needed, offered their kitchen and grill for our use, and made great recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area. It was a great place to get away from the business of our everyday lives and still have easy access to Hot Springs, hiking trails and rafting. We can't wait to go back again! Mark & Carla Charlotte
Our first visit to RiverDance was for our 35th anniversary! It was phenomenal! We stayed on the lower level in the River Rock Suite. Dave and Callie weren't there, but Callie let me know before we got there, that they may not be. When I text her we were there, she called to make sure everything was ok and asked if we needed anything. They even invited us to go to town with them that night. The whole visit was like that. We felt at home the moment we arrived. Our suite was great, the view from the bedroom and porch was amazing. It was nice having a refrigerator, we ate dinner on the deck/porch the first night, awesome view while dining! The breakfasts were wonderful, if you went away hungry, it was your fault. We did a lot of hiking, so we stayed to ourselves mostly when were were "home", but we look forward to going back and visiting with Dave and Callie some more. This is a great value and I highly recommend it !
To say that our stay at RiverDance was enjoyable is truly an understatement. Dave and Callie’s home is more, much more than just a Bed & Breakfast. Surely, as the website pictures reveal, the house is spectacular and the view is phenomenal, but what made the stay so wonderful for us was the warmth of their welcome and the pure pleasure of the time spent with them in Christian fellowship. Without question, we will not only return to enjoy the Spa at Hot Springs, but will do so only when they have room for us in their home.
Callie and Dave make you feel like family by welcoming you into their home to share all the amenities. Callie present sumptuous breakfast treats each morning. Choose from fresh fruit, yogurts, granola and a variety of baked goods. The hot tub is awesome and well placed on the property with a great view. Enjoy it at night with a beverage of your choice. You can tell the placement of the tub is well thought out. It is not easy to get a hot tub installed in the side of a mountain. Very ingenious Dave! We stayed in the lower level suite which had plenty of space for the two of us. There is a nice living room with big screen TV, desk, kitchenette with sink, frig. microwave and a toaster oven. This is a great getaway, with a great view and great accommodations. And it’s a Great Value too! Just a great place to kick back, reflect and enjoy life. Jeff & Lee
