Great House, Great Property, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the house for Thanksgiving weekend. The house was decorated for Thanksgiving when we arrived. The host was extremely helpful with information on fishing and was available by phone the whole weekend. The house was great for a big family, very clean, plenty of space and wonderful views and outdoors activities. We would repeat this trip with this house in a heartbeat!

A little heaven on earth...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the privilege of celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary at Green River Sanctuary. It was amazing! The drive up to the cabin was breathtaking. It sits overlooking a pond filled with wildlife and the most beautiful, lush patch of woods. Deer and turkey share the grounds and add to the peacefulness of this retreat. There are hiking trails and historical markers all around the area. The accommodations, decor, home layout were perfect. (It would be a great place for a family reunion!) We took a side-trip to Tennessee in addition to enjoying multiple local tourist attractions. Would return for another visit in a heartbeat!!

Nature lover

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Green River Sanctuary numerous times and it is my favorite retreat in the Carolinas. I love sitting by the river and watching for river otter or deer and hiking the many trails on the property. The home offers every amenity imaginable and offers privacy , security, and enjoyment during any season of the year. The property is located within an easy drive to many of NC's must see places....Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Asheville, the furniture market in Hickory, and of course the new Tryon Equestrian Center

More than the comforts of home...

  • 5 of 5

This is more than a getaway, this is luxury, entertainment, comfort, and peace. My stays have left me not wanting to leave. What more can you say for a place? The beauty of the south with close easy access to a world class equestrian center. Can't wait to go back.

Just what I needed.

  • 5 of 5

My experience at the Green Tover sanctuary was just beautiful. Plenty of space, extremely comfortable. I had everything I needed for my stay there. The patio was my favorite place. I spent many hours there just relaxing and taking in nature. There was plenty of trails to hike, or just the right spot by the river to enjoy the water. Just the right medicine for peace and relaxation!
