Just returned from spending three nights at RiverDance along with three other couples. It was a wonderful spot to relax and rejuvenate. Dave and Callie, the owners, are so warm and welcoming that you can't help but feel at home instantly. The location is set high in the mountains overlooking an oxbow of the Laurel River with mountains in the background. It couldn't be any more scenic, especially nice to enjoy the view while relaxing in the hot tub set on its own little deck.
Breakfast is provided and is abundant, though because it is not a commercial kitchen nothing is cooked. However, the assortment of granola, yogurt, fruits and pastries are more than enough to fill one up! There are many interesting books to peruse and lots of brochures to help you find interesting things to do in the area. It's a great spot for hiking trails, rafting adventures and side trips to towns like Mars Hill, Weaverville, Marshall and Asheville. We will be back!
