Best place ever. And I'm retired. Exquisitely decorated bedrooms upstairs in private home. Everything perfect, wonderful hosts, gourmet breakfast. By the New River murmuring in the background, with the occasional flotilla of rafters headed down river.

Gracious , thoughtful and helpful hosts await you at River ' s Edge Inn in Todd NC . We stayed with Christine and Tom during our visit to the NC High Country in search for a second home . We found what we were searching for and the best NC High Country B&B in the bargain . What a joy ! Christine and Tom are emblematic of the region -colorful , friendly wonderful hosts . You won ' t find a better France - inspired breakfast ( Christine is obviously French ) then that served ! The Inn is right on the New River surrounded by breath taking mountain scenery and minutes away from Boone and West Jefferson .we asked for and accepted their advice on everything from dining choices to interesting places to visit . Tom and Christine know the area intimately . Restful evenings in a cozy bed and tastefully decorated room prepared us for very busy and fun days to follow . We will return to and plan to stay at River ' s Edge Inn again . Plus their cat Casper rocks .....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River's Edge Inn. Christine and Tom were very gracious hosts and very attentive to our needs, including a few special requests we had. They were able to provide great information on local sights and attractions, including great restaurant recommendations -- even for cities a couple hours away! The breakfasts that Christine made were fresh and excellent. When my wife described something she loved from France, Christine even surprised her and made it for breakfast one day! The room was immaculate every day, and the surroundings were superb. We would go back again, and will recommend it to our friends. Thanks again, Christine and Tom, for all the hospitality.

Christine and Tom are excellent hosts. Christine is a great cook, and by great I should say great to some exponential power. You don't find cooking like hers at 5 star French restaurants as she dedicates her time and effort to the single meal you are having. Railroad Grade Road is an easy and very scenic biking destination. The New is a fun river for tubing or kayaking. It was low by the Inn on the dates we were there so Tom gave a shuttles to and from a deeper spot downstream along with allowing us to borrow some kayaks. After a full day of biking and boating came cool mountain air with the sound of the river to lull us to sleep in a very relaxed and artful environment. Overall, an awesome experience.

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.

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 .

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!

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.
