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.
