Wonderful Home - Great Location
Thoroughly enjoyed this cottage. Home was clean, neat and cozy. Owners made themselves available if we needed them which we didn't. We will be back again.
Very convenient and cute!
We enjoyed being with so close to WCU. Owners were super responsive and helpful. We would love to come back.
The Riverview Cottage is lovely! We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything is well kept and comfortable. The swing is nice on a cool morning, and the gas logs are perfect for a chilly mountain night. We will be back!
The cottage was very clean and was as shown on line
Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.
Very nice, clean and attractive cottage.
The cottage is very clean and well appointed. While the writeup does not show that it is air conditioned the owner installed portable unit to help with the unseasonably hot weather. The unit cooled the cottage quite nicely.
Great little apartment below owner's cottage
This was a great little apartment in the basement of the owner's cottage. It has 2 bedrooms and a nice living/dining area and a small kitchen. The only thing it does not have is Air Conditioning. It was a little too warm to stay in during the day in the beginning of July. In the evening, it wasn't too bad as the owner has a ceiling fan in one of the bedrooms and in the living area; and she supplied us with a tower fan for our use as well. We stayed pretty comfortable for the 3 nights we were there. The owner is great. Any problem or concern we had was taken care of immediately. Lisa is very easy to work with and a delight to meet.
Skiing and snowboarding during season within 20 miles, casinos within 20 miles, multiple lakes with boat rentals within 12-20 miles. Bear Lake, Fontana Lake, Lake Glenville! Fishing (guided tours available), white water rafting (The Nantahalla, The Tuckasegee), float trips, horseback riding, numerous hiking trails and driving vistas to explore, shopping, dining and more! Perfect location for the family vacation!
