Great location. We stayed in the cabin on the river. Beautiful! Very clean, more than enough room for 2 people, private from the other lodgers. The owners were very polite and informative regarding activities in the area. Great place to stay.

My fiance and I along with my adult daughter and her boyfriend stayed here for 1 night. The room smelled terrible and the beds were as hard as the river rocks! We had 1 bath towel, 2 hand towels and 1 wash cloth for 4 adults. There are no smoking signs posted warning of a $200 fee if they feel... More

The Riverbend exceeded our expectations. It was fresh, clean, new appliances and furniture, comfortable bed and friendly atmosphere. Our room was large and inviting. Enjoyed sitting by the river, quiet and peaceful. Grills, tables and chairs provided.

I stayed here during the first week of Oct 2014 with my girlfriend and 2 sisters. We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by an unfriendly, unwelcoming older man. On the second day we returned from a day out to find a hand written letter in our room accusing us of causing a burn mark on the carpet.... More

My family made a quick trip to Bryson City to enjoy the annual Nantahala Outdoor Center Guest Appreciation Festival. We found this quaint little place after looking on line. Weren't sure of the place, but took a chance after recent reviews demonstrated a clean & cute place to stay. We arrived on Friday evening, were met by a pleasant in... More

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
