Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 9

Rivers Edge Lodge is a luxurious and meticulously crafted mountain style home completed in 2010 and has direct frontage on the pristine Watauga River. This beautiful mountain retreat is located in the exclusive 350 acre gated community of Twin Rivers and is centrally located to all that the High Country has to offer. If your idea of paradise is relaxing beside a tranquil river and unwinding to the calming and restorative sights and sounds of nature, welcome to Rivers Edge Lodge.

Unwind inside this impressive and well appointed home, offering 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths and sleeping accommodations for 9. Outside the home, activities abound. Take a bike ride or hike through the community’s miles of managed trails along the Watauga and Boone Fork Rivers that connect to the Julian Price Park trail system or visit the many attractions in Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock only minutes away from the home.

Entering the home you will appreciate the elegant and rustic quality with hickory floors, vaulted beamed ceilings, hand crafted wooden trim, 10’ ceilings throughout the main floor and featuring a grand wood burning stone fireplace. The remarkable view of the river is apparent directly ahead. The gourmet in your family will enjoy the kitchen, well equipped with granite counters, island with gas stove and stainless steel appliances. Also on this floor is the beautiful dining room which will seat 6-8.

The master bedroom is an en suite and furnished with a king bed, large screen HDTV and an amazing view of the river. Imagine yourself waking in the morning to the sound of the river and that view! Two other well furnished bedrooms are also located on the first floor and both contain very comfortable memory foam mattresses on Queen beds and large screen HDTV’s. The children will enjoy their own upstairs retreat, furnished with a full bath, full/twin bunk beds, large screen HDTV and an extensive collection of DVDs to keep them entertained. There is also a large laundry room with washer and dryer directly off of the main living area and 2 car garage, where you can kick off your flip flops, river shoes or snow boots. Consider River’s Edge, your “home away from home”, but stay connected with the available high speed wireless internet service.

At the end of your day, take a break by the river at the fire pit and roast marshmallows or relax in the 6 person hot tub positioned right outside the back door with a fantastic view of the river. Or just sit and relax on the large, fully furnished back deck while the cook grills on the outdoor grill.

About Chris

I am a civil engineer and live in Charlotte, N.C. with my wife and three children.

Why Chris chose Boone

The river along the property is fantastic for me and my family and the location is very convenient for dining, shopping and various other attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our visit to River's Edge was awesome. The home is elegant, clean, and very well maintained. It was well stocked w/ all the utensils and implements we needed. The customer service was top notch including a cord of wood delivered upon our arrival. We enjoyed cozy nights in front of the fireplace. The proximity to hiking and restaurants was valuable as well. I highly recommend this home for a lovely vacation stay.

Always a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th consecutive year spending a 3-day weekend at River's Edge, and as always, we had a wonderful stay! The home is as gorgeous in person as it is in the pictures, and the owner (Chris) makes it easy to feel right at home. Not only are the home and decor lovely, but all the amenities! The fire pit out by the stream is fully prepped with dried firewood, as is the full size fireplace, cozy in the great room. There's a ping pong table in the garage... the list goes on. The home was designed for fellowship and fun with lots of comfy spaces for gathering. Thank you Chris, for sharing this beautiful home with us. We WILL be back!

immaculate decorated place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at this home for our ski trip. We checked in Christmas day and it was very easy, flawless. Home was breath taking. My in-laws came in a few days and more than plenty of room. The two boys (19 & 13) enjoyed staying in room over garage and my daughter enjoyed her room downstairs with a separate bathroom from the boys. And my in-laws enjoyed having their own room too! Plenty of fire wood. Beds were very comfortable. Nightly ping pong tournaments in the garage was fun. Location very close to a grocery store and right in middle of three ski areas. All three close by which was nice when kids did the night skiing.

Wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time staying at Rivers Edge. The house was in immaculate condition with plenty of room for our family to spread out. We were there in winter time so the property was beautiful with snow on the ground and ice on the river. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful home on the Watauga River. Really enjoyed being with great friends for a fun weekend. The outdoor fire pit was so nice during the day and the indoor fire was great at night. Home has everything you need for a fabulous time. Highly recommend!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding land were great. Chris had everything a family needs to have a great experience. We had a slight issue the second day. Since Chris couldn't get a repair man to fix it until the next day, he drove up the mountain and made the repair himself...great service! You won't regret staying at this property!
