About Christian Rosenberg

My family is based in the Caribbean. I love it, but truth be told, my heart always looks forward to the special peace of the Blue Ridge mountains in the.

Christian Rosenberg purchased this house in 2009

Why Christian Rosenberg chose Pisgah Forest

I looked at over 150 homes to buy back in 2009. I fell in love with this house and it's location. Sitting on the front porch with the hanging morning mist and listening to the birds sing is over the top wonderful ! There are weeks that I just don't leave the River House property. It is a slice of Heaven.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful private wooded entry and grass front yard with a large stone boulder fire pit, the front porch's swing chairs are wonderful, back patio area can entertain up to 50-plus people, and the interior of the house is very well appointed.

Very serene.

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. Very serene and beautiful. Huge house with lots of character. Thank you for letting us feel at home. Only gave it a 4 because the showers upstairs only supplied a trickle of water. Also one of the beds upstairs was dirty when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us. We always strive to make everyone's stay at the River House an enjoyable one and we hope you will come back again! Sincere apologies about the water pressure. The house water system is on a whole house filtration system and we inadvertently let the filter get clogged. We took care of it as soon as it was brought to our attention. One of the great things about staying at the River House is that we, the management, are right next door. Had we only known of the issues while you were here, we could have addressed them immediately. Thank you so much for bringing these matters to our attention. We hope to see you again soon.

It is misleading though ,because 4 th bathroom is not on same level as bedroom, also they have two double beds not one . Just small things , because house overall met our expect ions .

Owner's Response: Hello Indiana ; I want to thank you for your review as this information is important to us as Owners . On the front page of our VRBO listing "About The Property" the information on the interior layout clearly states that The top floor has four bedrooms and three full baths each with their own unique decor. I am going to change the listing info asap regarding the bed sizes provided as I do believe you are correct that there are (2) doubles not (2) queens . For that error please accept our apology ! I am very happy that you enjoyed the River House and all that the property has to offer ! Sincerely Chris Rosenberg Owner.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My son was married at the North Carolina Arboretum. The River House was the perfect home base for all the festivities surrounding the wedding weekend. It had everything we needed and plenty of space for our family. Cozy, clean and peaceful. An experience we will cherish.

Beautiful, clean, and great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The home is clean, well stocked, and the location is great! I highly recommend this home. Everything on the main and upper level was perfect.

The only reason it lost one star: the owner's suite (walk out basement/optional add on to rental) was musty and the linens felt damp.

Great house just outside Brevard

  • 5 of 5

We had a family group of 8 adults & 4 kids, and there was plenty of room for everyone. It is a very nice home and overlooks the French Broad River. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

Just a note to the owner: The bed in the bedroom on the left of the shared bath needs to have the 1"X1" boards that hold up the slats under the mattress replaced. The board on the far side of the bed is totally loose, and one of the slats is lying on the floor under the bed. Also the window mutton bars are falling out and need new pins to hold them in place.

Ultimate Mountain Biker Basecamp

  • 5 of 5

For a group of guys that were in the area for a few days of mountain biking this house exceeded all of our expectations. The house and property were beautiful, it was nice to come back to such comfortable accommodations after a long day of bike riding. We really enjoyed cooking out on the back patio.

Location was ideal. We were close to downtown Brevard, craft breweries, and the mountain bike trails at both Dupont and Pisgah Forests.

Looking forward to staying here again!
