My husband & I spent 2 days here, and it was not enough! The B&B is like a giant log cabin, down to the half logs that serve as the steps going upstairs. There was a balcony from our room that overlooked the river, where we could sit and listen to the birds. Relaxation perfection! The owners, Cathy & Anthony... More

I was fortunate to be one of the first guests when Cathy and Tony opened their inn, and swore I'd be back! And I was, two more time, including a birthday getaway with my then fiance, then as a honeymoon retreat when we were married five years ago. It's so beautiful, and so peaceful, and I highly recommend the Hideaway... More

I could only possibly repeat all of the wonderful comments reviewed prior to this, as those folks have really said it all. The River Lodge is absolutely a fabulous retreat, tucked away right on the Tuckaseegee River just slightly outside of town (Sylva/Cullowhee).

The River Lodge was perfectly located for attending a wedding at Castle Ladyhawke. The views are beautiful and the peaceful setting made for a great night's sleep. Cathy and Anthony are very gracious, unobtrusive hosts - they are there if you need them but leave you to enjoy the property if that's your preference. The breakfast was delicious. If you... More
