“Gorgeous location and home”
Reviewed 22 April 2011

From the moment we arrived we were awestruck by the gorgeous view from the home's back balcony. Photos just do not do it justice.
The hosts and owners of the home, along with their wonderful dog, Midge, were also so warm and inviting. They graciously assisted us with directions, suggestions, brochures, and area maps.
This home is a beautiful piece of artwork in itself, perched upon a scenic hillside with views that are breathtaking.
We decided upon RiverDance because we wanted to hike nearby Max Patch Mountain. This turned out to be the perfect choice for our daytime hikes. The location of the home is very private, yet just a short drive back down the mountain to Hot Springs and a number of trail heads.
The breakfast of fruits, scones, cereals, breads, and juices was also wonderful. We were even given a gift basket with treats for our hike! At one point my husband asked me if I was sure that the amount we were paying per night was accurate, because it seemed like such an incredible deal! We were pleasantly surprised all around and plan to return again soon.

After finding RiverDance online from searching the Hot Springs area accomodations, I knew we had to stay there. We are so glad we did! The Owners, Callie and Dave Wellendorf, were very accomodating and were just like family. We were traveling with my mother who has a few health issues and they were so caring and very willing to assists her in changing the room we had reserved and in making her stay a very pleasant one instead of a struggle. Our rooms were very comfortable, clean and welcoming, just as the photos and descriptions are that were posted online. The area is centrally located to the wonderful, natural mineral baths of Hot Springs, the excitement and activity of Gatlinburg and shopping of Pigeon Forge and Ashville. The views are breathtaking and the gentle rushing of the river below is such a wonderful and calming way to spend an evening. We just wish we could have stayed longer. Just make sure you copy and print the entire e-mail for reaching the house after entering the property. We had good directions from mapquest but I had forgotton what Callie said to do after you get through the gate to get to the house. Thanks to Verizon, we were able to use the cell phone for more instructions but most usually can't get service. If you like being out in the woods- it's like a remote camping trek, only you have all the comforts of home!

Our overnight in the NC mountains at Riverdance featured a phenomenal view, a spacious suite/ apartment and a fantastic deck w/ outdoor fireplace overlooking the river below. The hosts were especially accommodating to us: they were gracious when we initially called, were hospitable when we arrived, and the 'continental breakfast' (while initially a bit wary of this) hit the spot and was very generous. Riverdance is a marvelous value for the amount of space one receives as well as for the view and hot tub. I think Riverdance would be a tremendous location for a weekend party with a few couples. Although remote, we found the hideaway, mountain cabin-B & B to be a good match for our needs. My one suggestion: If you want to sleep later than 7am, bring black-out curtains or eye mask!

This was the most relaxing bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. My husband and I met friends there and enjoyed a nice weekend touring the area. We took a picnic down by the river that ran below the house. The back porch with the rockers and scenery were more than I expected. The hostess, Callie and her husband and dog were wonderful and met all our needs. They lived in the home and gave us all the privacy we needed, as well as making us feel part of the family if we wanted to. They were full of information on what to see and where to eat in the area. There was a hot tub we could have used. We will be going back there again!
