Fantastic getaway

Excellent hospitality in a beautiful home with great breakfast


Beautiful and peaceful

5 on August 22, 2016

Picture yourself seated on the back porch of the River ' s Edge Inn . A morning breeze whispers by and you hear the burbling of the river just a few hundred feet away . Before you a fresh , homemade French - inspired breakfast waits on fine china to be tasted . Little birds eat their breakfast as well on the hanging bird feeders near two Adirondack chairs for sitting and viewing the river . A tasty repast and icturesque location is only one aspect of our stay at Tom and Christine ' s . We came in for a one night stay on short notice and Tom and Christine were more then ready ! Everything was clean and fresh , from the firm mattress to fresh pillows .Our room was artfully decorated with French paintings and other fine ornaments . Christine showed us such hospitality : she offered us some fine French wine with some treats as we sat on the porch and they told great stories . One highlight was taking Tom up on the opportunity to kayak . He graciously drove us to a nearby bridge , let us borrow his kayaks and other equipment and send us downriver to pick us up later . When we capsized soon after putting in , he kindly helped us back up again ! We will remember a dozen precious details about this special place : the morning sunshine , the ongoing scrabble game between Tom and his son , Christine ' s art , a bike ride by the river , seeing an otter while kayacking , their friendly cat Casper , dinner with live music downtown West Jefferson , seeing shooting stars at night and more . They truly welcomed us into their home . Thank you again for a great ( and much needed ) stay .

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.


Amazing home B&B

5 on July 13, 2016

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 .....


Gracious hosts made the stay

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.


Great place to stay, eat, and have fun

5 on July 02, 2016

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.


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.
