Best Friends Spring Break Redo
My best friend from high school (almost 40 years) and I planned a Spring Break trip to Western NC. She loves waterfalls and photography but had never been to the Smoky Mountains. Both my maternal and paternal families are from Graham County and I wanted to show her the BEST part of the NC mountains.
Right from the beginning, Mike was very accommodating with me in making the reservations for our stay. Our original reservations were for April during Spring Break but with COVID-19 closures, Mike allowed us to reschedule our vacation with full credit before VRBO made the recommendations to property owners. And then... once my friend and I realized that we would probably be returning to our schools earlier than usual in August which would interfere with our August reservations, once again, Mike was very accommodating with our request and changed our reservations for June 18-21.
We arrived a little early to the property and Yaling was there finishing up with preparations for our arrival. Yaling is so very sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. She even helped us unload our car! The cottage was adorable and clean. The kitchen had all the utensils, dishes, and appliances you would use in your own home, and the beds were very comfortable, especially after a long day of sightseeing. The owners were available and responded quickly to our questions. Staying at River Dance Lodge was very pleasant and peaceful. It's close enough to the necessities and plenty of things to do and see, but away enough to feel private and restful. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains. Thank you, Mike and Yaling for being wonderful hosts. I am sure I will be back in the future!
It was nice and peaceful. We will be back. Everything was in order, and run smoothly.
Second stay and will be back!
Loved our second stay as much as the first. We will be back for a vacation in future when it is a little warmer and can enjoy the river in the backyard. It is so relaxing to watch and listen to. Property is clean and cozy. Felt quite at home. Communication with owners is wonderful! Highly recommend this property!
Very clean!! Near everything you need!
My husband and I are in the janitorial business and have a hard time finding places to stay that feel truly clean but this place was so clean and near everything you may need. The river is peaceful and beautiful too!! They have everything there in case you forgot something. We are staying again in a couple of weeks and hoping to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the outdoors more also! Communication was wonderful and check in and out so simple. Thanks so much for an awesome stay!!
Older home but well equipped and very clean. River makes a quaint sray.
Very nice place to stay. Well equipped with most everything needed. Would have lived a TV in the bedroom as we like to relax at night and watch the news. Otherwise-lived our stay. Very local to many small towns in the arwa. Beautiful mountains.
Located at Franklin, NC in the heart of the Smokies. Our riverfront property has a prime location just a few miles from several waterfalls. Short drive to Great Smoky Mts NP, Cherokee and its casino, river rafting, and the Biltmore mansion, America's largest home. Each season has its magic and charm.

About Michael White
We retired to this wonderland, and are pleased to share it with others.
Michael White purchased this Lodge in 2012
Why Michael White chose Franklin
We chose this area due to its great climate, awesome mountain views, waterfalls all down the scenic road, sweet water, many hiking trails, and gemstone mining. Riverfront living at its finest! It has modern conveniences, set in a rural mountain area, small town country feel Relaxed, and laidback.
What makes this Lodge unique
- Ideally located in the Nantahala National Forest, and the Cullasaja river gorge. This property has easy access, with prime river frontage, with great views from almost every window, and extensive decks. Cabin is off of Scenic highway 64, with several Waterfalls nearby along the road. Property is easy to find! - Best rates on the river, in this prime location! You will regret it, if you book a poor location, with difficult access, and no river - to save a few bucks!
