We stayed at tree top suite in August. It was very nice and clean! We enjoyed the breakfast on the deck every morning! The view was amazing! The owners were very nice people! And their dog Marley was very sweet! The service was great too! We enjoyed the activities -hot springs spa, max patch trail, hot springs rafting, laurel river... More

Owners Dave and Callie were responsive to emails and phone calls. Descriptions are accurate and their home is very inviting, comfortable and clean. The view of the gorge and sounds of the river from the porch swing on the deck of the River Rocks lower level are therapeutic even during a rain shower! If stairs are a challenge, this level... More

I was surprised to learn that my Daughter had made arrangements for my wife and I to spend a night at RiverDance. This would be our last chance to relax before a long series of medical procedures. It almost seemed liked too much to add to our schedule but we did not want to disappoint anyone. Shortly after arrival everything... More

Wow! As soon as you approach RiverDance you are awestruck by the spectacular view of the mountains and river below and it only gets better once you enter. Callie and David made our stay truly special with their gracious hospitality. They will instantly become your new friends! Such a beautiful space with every amenity you could need for a relaxing...

We have limited experience with B&B's and were a bit nervous about what we would find at the end of a long trip. What we found was peace, relaxation and new friends. The nights at RiverDance were our favorite, we turned off the lights, watched lightning bugs, listened the the sound of the creek running, enjoyed the cool air and... More

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few nights and set goals for the coming year. My husband promised me that he had found "just the spot." I was skeptical. He reserved the place many months in advance and when the time came I was worried that a bed and breakfast was not a good idea. However,... More

For those who love nature and breathtaking views, this is a must go destination. The owners, Callie and Dave are great people and hosts.

Suits are tastily decorated and you def get... More

RiverDance is Home away from Home and the Wellendorf's are like family. I love this place. I've been to more than 60 countries, so when I say that the view from the decks of RiverDance are some of the best in the world it means something. Our last trip there led to late nights because we didn't want to go... More

Riverdance is a great place for families with or without pets. Suite is spacious with plenty of room. The deck is great to relax and unwind. Wish that they had a full breakfast but for the price of the room that is expected, again you cannot beat the price for what you are getting. Hotsprings is not far for restaurants... More

I stayed at RiverDance last week for two nights with the intention of getting away for a quiet retreat of reading and meditation. A colleague at work had recommended RiverDance to me, but I was completely unprepared for the beauty of the setting, the luxury and spaciousness of the accommodations, and the graciousness of the owners/hosts, Callie and Dave.
