Great place to stay and great hosts

Just stayed for a long weekend with Christine and Tom and they could NOT have been more gracious hosts. They opened their home to us and made us feel "at home". I recommend to anyone looking for a nice getaway.

Delightful home for perfect week end getaway

Tom & Christine were amazing ! they were both so accommodating and their attention to detail was perfect ! The house was beautiful , comfortable and extremely clean and cozy . Christine ' s preparation for our gourmet breakfast was delicious and special . Her French roots are visible throughout their home and her culinary perfection ! Tom made sure we had anything we needed and took extra time to inform us of local events he thought we would enjoy . We enjoyed our stay so much and didn't want to leave ! Thank you both so very much for welcoming my family . We will definitely be back and highly recommend anyone wanting to be pampered and comfortable for their visit to the area .

Cozy Mountain Cabin

Christine and Tom are wonderfully delightful people and superb hosts. Christine's authentic French cuisine was delectable and waking up to a delicious breakfast with pastries, fruits, and yogurt was a treat. Not to mention her French accent is so cute! Tom is a trip! He will guide you wherever you wish to go, having a pretty vast knowledge of the area and pretty much any outdoor activity you would want to do. Kayaking was an option, but it was too cold for us. He may look like an old guy but he's pretty spry and competitive (challenge him to a game of bocce ball or table tennis!) We stayed in the Reve Bleu and it was so quaint and cozy. Everything was just nice, clean, and comfortable. They really do make you feel like guests, and not just people crashing in one of their rooms. Like most people in the world, I'm usually too lazy to write a review of anything I buy or anywhere I go, but our stay here was so amazing, I've gotten off my [figurative] butt to give credit where credit is due. We definitely recommend this place if you plan an NC mountain visit!

Fantastic French Cuisine, excellent location

It just doesn't get any better than this. Christine's cooking is a treat for the eyes as well as the tongue. Plus you have a great river for paddling and a great road for biking, and Todd is a good destination for either. I love a place you don't have to use your car except maybe for an occasional kayak shuttle. Not your typical B&B, fairly new property but with lots of old world charm.

Great place!

Staying at The Inn in Todd, Nc, is like coming HOME.

A stay at Christine and Tom's Bed and breakfast is like coming home to the most comfort and hospitality you could ever imagine. The Inn is impeccably clean, the food Divine and the entire experience is FIVE STAR. You must experience it for yourself to see what I mean.

Fantastic location for a weekend getaway

We recently spent two wonderful nights at Rivers Edge Inn. The location is fantastic! Christine served a delicious gourmet breakfast on the back deck over looking the river. Our room was very comfortable and Christine made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Tom and Christine are great hosts and are knowledgeable about the area. Staying at Rivers Edge Inn feels like staying with friends. We can't wait to go back.

Delightful Stay at River's Edge

We had a wonderful time at the River's Edge B/B located near Todd, NC. THe hosts, Tom and Christine were extremely friendly and accomodating. They welcomed us into their home, provided the perfect mix of company and privacy, and made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast was incredible with coffee, fresh fruit, and delicious pastries. Casper the friendly cat was an added bonus! They offer plenty of options for outdoor activities as well. We are already talking about a return trip! Thanks Tom and Christine...we had a delightful time. Jeff and Suzie
