About Liz and Paul Wiederhold
Paul and Liz Wiederhold moved to 'the river' in 2006 to follow their dreams. Their incredible new riverfront location begged to be shared... and 'Riverside Escapes' was born. More than vacation rentals, the future of Riverside Escapes will include riverfront weddings, family reunions, corporate retreats, and more. The Wiederholds were married on the property's island and live onsite where they provide personal service for their guests. The property is full of animals; Diamond - our very friendly campus mascot dog, a flock of very pampered free range chickens, a pair of mallard ducks who have taken up voluntary residency, and lots of other birds and critters. Paul owns a high end roofing company specializing in slate, tile, copper and metal roofs, and copper gutters. When not working, Paul loves to fish, kayak and generally enjoy the river. Liz enjoys hostessing and working 'hands on' at Riverside Escapes including fixing and building things, as well as designing, decorating, sewing and landscaping.

Why Liz and Paul Wiederhold chose Alexander
The Americana Cabin is our favorite! It is a glamping style cabin on an island in the river. The French Broad River is a spectacular river meandering through a spectacular town. 'Broad' is a descriptive name for this large, majestic river which is largely unspoiled by development. Yet, just down river, Asheville offers all of the excitement, arts, fine dining, nightlife, and eclectic culture that anyone could seek. The Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail and so many other natural gifts are just a short drive away. Madison County offers some of the beautiful whitewater rafting locations, unspoiled mountain land, and even snow skiing in Wolf Laurel. Our location is ideally located just north of Asheville and south of Madison County. It is truly the best of both worlds.
What makes this Cabin unique
Riverside Escapes offers the only island vacation rental in the area and one of just a few riverfront properties. Guests are encouraged to walk the swinging bridge, fish from the shores, sit by the riverside campfire, and generally immerse themselves in the incredible natural beauty of the property. There is something for everyone here. For the more adventurous type, our island cabin offers the feel of remote camping, but none of the hassles. For those seeking more luxury, our mainland cabin has all the comforts of home and more with a hot tub, custom tile showers, coffee bar, wireless internet access, and more.

We had the best getaway ever! So incredibly peaceful and the area is gorgeous. Wonderful evenings at our campfire 🔥�. This is a very rare and special place. So good for the soul. ♥️
Beautiful, rustic and oh so private. The perfect spot for our romantic weekend getaway. Will definitely recommend this property to all my family and friends!!
Enjoyed a relaxing stay on the island. The shower foot pump is hard to work, maybe a small electric pump? Otherwise the place is great!
Loved this cabin and the location. This is the perfect getaway if you're into semi primitive living. We'll definitely be regulars!
Fun on the French Broad
We had a blast!!! Beautiful property and great getaway from the city. We will be back 😍😍😍
Private island in French Broad River just outside Asheville is a unique glamping destination. The tiny house cabin is 360 sq. ft and offers the opportunity to feel like you are a million miles away, but be 25 minutes from Asheville's downtown, 10 minutes from Weaverville or Marshall, 20 minutes to Appalachian Trail, 25 minutes to Biltmore Estate, 15 minutes to Vance Birthplace, 15 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 minutes to Hot Springs.
The Americana Island Cabin at Riverside Escapes is a destination all to itself. Relax by the private campfire, float in tied off river tubes, swing in the hammock and enjoy the river and nature sounds.
