Due to spending our winters in Florida, we have not been to the River House County Inn in over 2 years, yet it was like walking back in time !!! The Inn is not for everyone, yet no place really is. First, there is no cell phone service, but they have added Internet Wifi, which at times we had to... More

Bed & Breakfasts are our preferred accommodations when we travel for pleasure. Along the way, we expect some hits and some misses. Although River House Inn is popular with much repeat business, for us it was a miss. The proprietress is the epitome of Southern grace and hospitality. The Inn is in a picturesque setting and carries an atmosphere of... More

Two years ago my husband and I happened upon this riverside bed and breakfast when doing a tour of such places in the western portion of North Carolina. We are very lucky people to have found this treasure. The River House is very inviting, as soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with a smile and you... More

What a super experience! The inn was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the view was amazing. The best part, however, was the caring staff led by Gayle Wilson. We had a boisterous wedding crowd, but the staff took us right in stride. Gayle even joined us on the porch for a glass of wine after dinner on Saturday night.... More

My husband and I love the River House. Gayle Winston is such a lady and goes out if her way to make everyone comfortable. We are fortunate to visit there frequently and now it's like visiting family. If you are looking for a real get away where you can totally relax, this is the place for you. We are heading... More

Traveling through Virginia and North Carolina my wife and I have stayed several times at the River House, at Grassy Creek North Carolina. The setting is lovely, bordered by the river, which at that point looks like a large stream, and lovely hills for enjoyable views and walking. Accommodations are attractive and comfortable; some rooms include saunas. Most outstanding is... More

Our daughter and son-in-law wanted family from NY, AZ, and CA to spend time together and witness their wedding as well as get to know each other as some had not met until the wedding week. Gayle and her staff helped plan the most magnificent wedding: fun-filled and absolutely delicious food for all meals and the wedding was the topper.... More

We have just spent a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend at “Riverhouse Country Inn” in Grassy Creek, N.C. (near West Jefferson) The setting offers a beautiful country landscape with great walking paths along the “river”. The 180 acre property features a beautiful country inn with a large, comfortable porch where great conversations begin. There are also other buildings on the property... More

My expectations were reasonable for a county inn on the river in rural NC. Those expectations were absolutely blown away. The meals were fabulous, the service impeccable and presented with grace and aplomb. Upon espying the piano in the dining room, I thought maybe someone would plunk away indifferently as entertainment, but the players each night were extraordinary! Adding even... More
