Property description

Rivers Ridge Lodge and the cities of Black Mountain and Asheville offer something for everyone from Waterfalls to first class Spas, Craft Breweries & Wineries, award-winning Restaurants, Scenic Drives, Folk Art, Rock Climbing, Performing Arts, Music, Shopping, The Quilt Trail, unique History, etc. Planning a wedding or event? Check out photos on our facebook page. Not sure about local activities and events? Our website’s own EXPLORE WNC or EXPLORE ASHEVILLE pages have tons of ideas for you...

Fly Fish Rivers Ridge Lodge’s 3000 feet of private waters (probably best for beginners to those with mid range skills) with family or friends. For the expert fly fishing group, we’ll help you schedule an expedition to one of Western North Carolina’s beloved fly fishing destinations. There are many within easy driving distance, and we know great local guides.



Does your group crave competition? Because of its proximity to Pisgah National Forest, the area features ambitious races of all types, most notably those bordering on the crazy or zany...think Black Mountain Marathon/Mount Mitchell Challenge or Assault on Mount Mitchell.

Is golf the game of choice? Western NC is a golfer’s paradise offering a wide variety of well known courses. 



Weather not conducive to fishing or golf? Home to 11 craft breweries, Asheville boasts about 50 local beers. Asheville has more breweries per capita than any other US city! Wine vineyards have thrived in Western NC because of the area’s excellent conditions for growing grapes at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are six excellent wineries just east of Rivers Ridge Lodge and the vineyards and winery on The Biltmore Estate in Asheville.



Did you know that Western NC has a rich Revolutionary and Civil War history? Reenactments are celebrated and many sites are commonly visited. There are famous literary personalities with museums and memorials in the area...Fred Chappell, Gail Godwin, O. Henry, Carl Sandburg, Thomas Wolfe. Whatever the focus, we’ll help you create an exciting getaway.



Where luxury and style meet the Blue Ridge Mountains. Rivers Ridge Lodge is a custom built, 5,000 SF, 6 bedroom, 5.5 bath log home nestled into 3000+ feet of river frontage on 17 undeveloped acres. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Western North Carolina from the 5,000+ SF deck that wraps the Lodge on 3 sides and juts over the edge of the widest span in the river. The open gourmet kitchen/living room, with its 16 ft stone fireplace and antler chandelier, will warmly welcome your extended family, friends or colleagues and comfortably accommodate them. Sleep and relax in any of 3 Master Suites on the main level. We have also crafted ramps, a barrier free shower and widened doorways to make the main floor and deck of the Lodge wheelchair friendly so everyone is included. The Lodge will sleep 20+ and the exterior bunkhouses add space for 5-6 more. 

Very private, yet only minutes away from Interstate 40 (Exit 75), Rivers Ridge Lodge is an ideal spot for year-round vacations and events.

Popular day trips include: Pisgah National Forest, within minutes; Black Mountain, 10 mins; Blue Ridge Parkway, 12 min; Lake James, Lake Lure, and Chimney Rock, 30 mins; downtown Asheville's Biltmore Estate and Grove Park Inn, 25 min; Linville Caverns, 40 mins; Mount Mitchell, 50 mins; Sugar and Beech Mountain (skiing), 60-70 min. Access tons of information about favored locales, special events and interesting diversions by visiting our website's EXPLORE ASHEVILLE and EXPLORE WNC pages or our Facebook page. Rivers Ridge Lodge, we’ve tried to think of everything.
