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.

It was time to get away from the cold and fast pace of the Mid-West and create our year round Timber Frame home. We live in RiverDance full-time and are looking forward to having you as our guest. The idea from the start was to share RiverDance with others who want to venture out and explore all that Western North Carolina has to offer.

Continental breakfast each morning. Inviting hospitality. An experience you will not want to miss.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
