We are looking forward to returning for another stay very soon. One of the most peaceful places we have ever stayed. Wonderful hosts and breakfasts to travel far for. Hope to see you soon Cathy and Anthony.

The Hideaway Cabin was the perfect romantic escape. The accommodations were extremely clean and the high quality bedding and linens were a pleasant surprise. Even better was the tastefully decorated lodge exhibiting the innkeeper's paintings, beautiful antiques, rustic decor and cozy stone fireplace. The breakfast was the best we had during our 10 day trip to North Carolina; Tony's delicate... More

This was our second stay at the River Lodge, the last one was 17 years ago and they are still there! We usually stay with family or friends when we visit western NC, but this time we got to stay with at the Lodge. As before, it was beautiful, in fact, it has gotten better with age.

River Lodge is a unique blend of elegant and rustic. Very tastefully decorated and ever so clean. The grounds are so lovely with waterfalls, a koi pond, beautiful birds, and cows in the surrounding fields not to mention the view of the river. My only suggestions would be an update in mattresses and linens and improved lighting for reading in... More

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!

Recently we stayed for 3 nights at the River Lodge in Cullowhee. The surroundings are beautiful and there are plenty of windows for light in the lodge. The porch at the lodge along with the balcony off the room we had gave us a lot of opportunity to enjoy everything. Cathy and Anthony are wonderful innkeepers. They were very helpful... 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). From the minute you pull into the driveway, you can tell this is a special place. Very... More

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
