The River Garden B & B is a somewhat out-of-the-way gem of a place. It is nestled at the foot of a mountain and on the banks of the river. Each room has a deck entrance facing the river. It is peaceful and beautiful, and it's just a short, scenic ride into Abindon. Paula is an excellent hostess and cook.... More

For a trip to the Abingdon area, this B&B was a great place to stay! Very quiet location with beautiful views of the river, yet close enough to town. The food was amazing and Paula set up our bike rides and theater tickets like a 5 star concierge. She made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived.... More

Paula was a tremendous host and provided anything we could want and more. She made sure we knew where we were going, and was more than happy to help us in any way possible. The home theater is exceptional, and there are numerous board games to make for a relaxing stay. Then there is the food. I ate my fill... More

We had a lovely weekend getaway at the River Garden. It was located right on the river with great amenities including a nice hot tub, amazing theater setup, pool table, exercise room and lots of games. There were tasty baked goods out all day (cakes, banana bread, etc). Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were comfortable and had private entrances... More

For me vacations are about visiting new place - exploring and learning and experiencing people and places. We prefer small B&Bs or inns which allow us to get to know some of the local residents. Rarely do we return to the same place twice but we have one B&B in the VA mountains and one at the SC shore that... More

The River Garden B&B is just amazing. Situated on the river with a rocking-chair deck, hot tub, fitness room, media room, and comfortable rooms, it is worth the drive (only 15 minutes or so from Abingdon) to stay there and take advantage of the town of Abingdon, the Barter Theatre performances, and the Va. Creeper Trail. We loved that it... More

We needed to escape for a long weekend and found the best possible place at River Garden. Our innkeeper, Paula, is so accommodating and friendly. She is also an amazing cook. My husband was spoiled by her nightly treats as well as her incredible breakfasts. The B&B is on a river and our room opened up to a deck facing... More

We spent two nights at this lovely B & B in July and we cannot wait to go back. From the moment we arrived, Paula and Scott made us feel right at home. Our room was beautifully-decorated, clean and comfortable. Water pressure in the shower was amazing and the rocking chairs on the deck overlooking the river were just perfect.... More

The River Garden is so homey. The whole house has a natural, earthy feel to it. The common areas include a dining area (indoor & out), sitting area with cozy chairs, media room with large screen and lots of movies to choose from, pool table, and exercise room. There is also a hottub and a large trampoline (for the adventurous).... More

We just stayed there and our room was very comfortable with beautiful view of the creek. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. I don't think we could have asked for more. When we return to finish the creeper trail we intend to return here. Our hostess is a fantastic cook the three mornings we were stuffed to the hilt.
