The River House is fabulous! Lovely, calming and classy! We loved our visit - our room was great, the art was beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic! Hours can tick away when you sit in the rocking chairs on the front porch watching the river go by! I was impressed with how clean our room was! Worth the journey!

The Nayar House was perfect for us. Enjoyed a 4 hour kayak paddle down the New River, the Sunday Salon was a wonderful experience. The staff treated you like family. Atmosphere was casual elegance.

The River House is an unexpected surprise in the mountains of NC. With the New River flowing beside you and the charm of the restored property, you leave feeling like you were a very special guest. If you are going to get away from the paces of everyday life, this is the place for you. Best time to visit would be in the spring if you are looking for an active get-a-way as they offer canoeing trips and the property is filled with amazing wildlife and scenic beauty for hiking and picnics. But anytime you go, you will leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. The staff and owners make you feel quite at home. When you arrive and are greeted by Paula with a warm southern welcome and are taken care of by Sherman in his hopes to make your stay a delightful one, you feel like you have known them all your life. The air is thick with history and a well kept landscape invites you to explore. The dinner served is impecable and the breakfast is a welcome way to start the day. The room we stayed in was wonderful and the tub was a nice way to unwind and relax with the complimentary bottle of champagne. I think this was a wonderful get-a-way for our anniversary.
