"This cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway. It's quaint and extremely private. The screened in porch offered the perfect place to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature. Customer service from start to finish was impeccable!"

"A wonderful, relaxing vacation away from it all! The house was nicer than the pictures online and very clean. The property manager was very helpful and accomodating, providing assistance with putting our boats in the water. A small grocery store was about 10 minutes away and had everything we needed. If you are pickey, I would shop before you get in to town, this store provided the basics which is all we needed. The house was very spacious, had everything we needed, and it is an easy drive from Hickory so we will definitly be staying here again!!"

"We really enjoyed our week at River's Ridge. Lana and Chuck were great - gave us all the details and info we needed. AND they left a beautiful bowl of fresh fruit and fresh flowers in vases throughout the house - such a sweet and beautiful touch (we kept those lovely flowers watered!). Our family has celebrated events together at many rental homes, and this is by far the best one we have rented. It was very spacious, leaving room for togetherness and privacy. Those of us playing loud games in the basement late at night were not heard by the early-to-bedders on the floor above. And since the huge basement is on a slope with doors and windows out to the lawn it's actually one of brightest areas of the house. The women gathered most mornings for coffee on the gazebo - sweet spot. And we loved learning how to use the Aga. In Asheville we did the Pubcycle (FUN) and some of us went to the chocolate lounge more than once. In Black Mountain, the Trailhead restaurant and Thai Basil were both very good. We LOVED that Lana and Chuck had a trail and waterfall guide at the house, and we took hikes most days. The Catawba Falls hike is fabulous. Not too strenuous and wonderful waterfalls. Strongly recommended!"

"We stayed here for a week at the end of June and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious, well maintained, clean and has famtastic views of Lake James and the mountains. We ate every meal out on the deck so that we could enjoy the views - although the lake side of the house is all floor to ceiling windows so you could enjoy the views from inside as well. We don't own a boat so we explored the area and found Black Mountain (lovely mountain town, golf) and Catawba Falls (good hike to waterfalls) to be about 1/2 hour away, Asheville is about 45 minutes away. The homeowner let us use his kayaks which were great fun for all. As far as the stairs to the lake are concerned - forewarned is forearmed. They are steep and long but we all managed to get up and down several times a day, some of us stopping to catch our breath more often than others! I think to make the very most of your vacation at this home it would be good to either have your own boat or make arrangements to rent a boat through the homeowner or perhaps at the marina. The homeowner was very easy to work with and provided lots of brochures, maps and other helpful info at the house to ease in exploring the area. We highly recommend this rental."
