This is an OLDER property. But one that can't be built anymore. We sat at a table right on the Tuckasegee river eating dinner in the evening. The owner gave us a kickstand board for the motorcycle and put a towel on the bike seat during the night. The rooms and property are CLEAN, but don't look for breakfast because... More

Rooms are nothing fancy but clean and adequate. We enjoyed your stay. Enjoyed sitting by river reading a book with glass of wine while cooking steaks on grill and watching the geese and kayakers drift by. Would stay there again

I just spoke with a gentlemen regarding a possible stay at Riverbend Lodging for Thursday, July 10 and wanted to express my disappointment on the conversation. When confirming the reservation with my credit card he indicated that a 1 week cancellation is required. I explained that we will be traveling by motorcycle and the weather could possibly influence our 7/10... More

I stayed here the end of June, rented 2 rooms! I expected a hair dryer, coffee, no wifi, something better for the price. Nope! We had kids, the creepy old man who owned the place cursed me out because they were too loud. Really?! When we would leave in the morning to visit family, they would come in and turn... More

I called Riverbend Lodging and asked about a reservation this upcoming Labor Day weekend. The website didn't specify that you had to reserve 2 or more nights, and he proceeded to cuss me, called me a [--], and said he didn't answer a million questions! Even called me the [--] word. I said we would reserve 2-3 nights, but that... More

I recently travelled with my family to Bryson City to do some rafting down the Nantahala. We planned on staying in Cherokee but a biker rally was there and there were no hotel rooms. We did not make a reservation in advance (mistake). While in a full hotel parking lot, I got on my iPhone and found the Riverbend Lodge... More

We stayed here while on a motorcycle trip with two other couples. We'd turned in about 9pm but were awakened about 45 min later when a man started banging on our door screaming and cursing, wanting us to come outside. This man was in a rage. Not having a clue what was going on, my husband went to the door... More

The mattress in the room at Riverbend was so completely worn out and noisy it made sleep next to impossible. Whenever either of us moved in the bed, which we had to do frequently because we kept rolling into the depression/sink hole in the middle, the loud squeaking noise woke us up. We advised the owner of the Riverbend about... More

Average stay. Enjoyed being right on the river. Service great very friendly. Rooms clean. Small bath area. Grill on deck looking over river. Fishing poles for rent. Just be carefull on your way out, espically on a motorcycle tall incline steep ate the top can cause you to fall.
