Hot Springs house description

RiverDance Is Much More: Bask in the hot tubs or get a massage in nearby Hot Springs. Raft down the French Broad River. Fish in the rich trout streams. Western North Carolinas is known for its arts and crafts community, visit local craftsmen at work, hike our wandering trails, the Appalachian Trail is 2 miles away and the Laurel River trail is even closer.Wander small towns of Hot Springs, Mars Hill and Marshall or immerse yourself in Asheville (the “Paris of the South”). Take a drive along the 'Blue Ridge Parkway'. Experience the majesty of Madison County, the “Jewel of the Blue Ridge”. Or just the perfect place to just 'set a spell' and relax !!

We know privacy is important to many of our guests and we totally understand that sharing the house with us the owners might be a concern. But we have taken many steps to ensure you can have the amount of privacy you desire. Please take a look at the review from a recent guest who had some concerns and ho we were able to meet and exceed their needs.

The Military Couple From Savannah: We are a military couple living in Savannah, GA missing our roots in Pittsburgh, PA and we were looking
to go on a vacation for a week before my husband had to leave for a few months. The vacation was last
minute because of how the military works. We got online and were looking for vacation rentals for the
Smoky Mountains. Three of our Main needs that we wanted were 1.) Privacy 2.) Quiet 3.) Access. Oh and pet accommodating. (our dog Agnes is our only family member) We are hikers, rafters and just up to anything. Callie, Dave, Daniel and their dog Midgie were all very accommodating of our needs.

Privacy

We were extremely hesitant to go with a rental that we were going to be sharing the space with the
owners. We are constantly around people with our jobs and need some time to get away and get back to
the Mountains! So we were pleasantly surprised with the Privacy that was given to us in the lower level of the house.

Access: On top of privacy and needing a quiet peace of mind place we wanted a location that was not too far
away from attractions or different parks. RiverDance is located just a couple of miles from Hot Springs
with is a quaint little town. It has a few restaurants and the Appalachian trail runs right through it. There
were a large amount of trails that were right around the area. The more you explore the more you find.
Asheville is only about 35 minutes from RiverDance and there is so much to do there if you are not all
about hiking 24/7. Plus there are many little towns located within the mountains that you can stumble
upon while you are out. All and All I will come back to RiverDance because of the Great people that run it
and the location. Callie and her family were so welcoming and willing to help us out with anything that we
needed. This family is so pleasant and aware of your privacy it is a great combination.

                      Vacation in Madison County, the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge', two miles from the Appalachian Trail and the quaint spa town of Hot Springs. History is alive in Madison County! Whether it's arts and crafts that interest you, outdoor sports, agri-tourism complete with u-pick and teaching farms, or you're simply looking for a place to completely get away from it all, consider visiting us in Madison County for your next excursion.

                      Rolling hills, green as an Irish landscape or painted in lovely shades of ochre and beige in winter, rugged mountains ringing the horizon, successive switchbacks on mountains ascents and descents, cows grazing on steep mountain pastures, farms and tobacco barns tucked into folds of the landscape. Located just 30 minutes from Asheville, one can go from wildly dramatic scenery to pastoral peace simply by turning a corner.

                      The calendar you will see on this HomeAway site is up to date. Do feel free to give us a call at 847-809-3098 with any questions.
