River dance and their owners are the greatest host and hostess I have ever had experience with. Their B & B is beautiful and in a beautiful setting in the North Carolina Mountains. Our suite was tastefully decorated and clean. My family and I were there for my son's wedding and this house was a great place to relax during... More

Always a pleasure for us when families gather at RiverDance, and especially so when it is for such a special occasion as a wedding. Certainly a plus when family has the opportunity to do some exploring, and the area really does have a lot to offer, while still being involved with all the wedding activity. Glad we had the opportunity... More

I stayed two nights while on a solo motorcycle trip and was so happy I chose Riverdance. The setting is gorgeous and Callie and Dave were delightful. I had the tree tops suite which like having my own apartment. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom fully stocked and clean. Comfortable living space and plenty of privacy, which I always worry...

Glad you made your way to RiverDance after your lengthy drive to come and find some peace in the mountains. You could not have asked for better porch time weather, and the starts certainly did cooperate as you captured them through your camera lens. Can't wait to get them as well to share on Facebook!

Wants something out of the way and Riverdance fitted the bill in all aspects. The house is on a mountain and well appointed(see drone footage you will book straight away).It was a shame the weather was so bad as we couldn't enjoy all that was on offer.

Absolutely beautiful accommodations and spectacular views near the top of a mountain! So nice, that we opted to spend one of our days just relaxing on the outside porch/ deck! An intimate B&B; we stayed in Tree Tops (3rd floor) and other patrons stay on the 1st level; the middle level is common area and is where the host stays.... More

We recently visited Riverdance and wanted to wind down from a few hectic weeks. This was our second visit, first in River Rocks.

I had no idea what River Dance would be like, except that the pictures looked great. Actually they don't really do the place justice. It's even more spectacular in person. The other surprise was Caillie and Dave. Hard to find more lovely, warm, and helpful Innkeepers. The perfect mixture of hospitality, discretion and sensitivity. The last surprise was Hot Springs,...

My friends and I drove down to Riverdance from NY. We were in much need of some rest and relaxation.

This family had such fun during their RiverDance stay just being together, and away from the fast pace of New York. Indeed, it was hard to leave all that deck space as the weather could not have been better for the entire visit. Looking into the view, and the stream sitting 300 feet below is a site that no one...
