We were warmly welcomed to Riverdance. The beds were really comfortable, the rooms were beautiful and the breakfast excellent. Not only that, but the river was amazing for fly fishing. We are definitely planning to return. Callie and Dave are delightful and mailed our forgotten wash bags without hesitation. Excellent.

Had another nice 3 night stay at RiverDance. This was our second October staying here with our Chocolate Lab. Hot Springs is just a beautiful, peaceful get-away, and RiverDance is the place to stay. Callie and Dave are perfect hosts.

After the excellent visit last year (November 2011), we decided yet again to visit Riverdance. We knew the views. We knew what would be in the snack packs left by the hosts. We knew where to go for the best pizza. We knew that the canine host would love to see us. We even knew how the river sounded that... More

Sometimes a wedding weekend gets pretty complicated. The flexibility of our kind hosts at Riverdance allowed us to include an extra family. We occupied both suites (plus some). We also held the catered rehearsal dinner there . It was a good place for a fun informal get together. You will not see a more spectacular view anywhere in the area.... More

This was a perfect surprise from my husband. A white water rafting trip that I knew about, but Riverdance was a complete surprise. All I can say is that he outdid himself with this trip. He is always trying to please me with spur of the moment trips and things like that but I don't think he will ever top... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year Anniversary at Riverdance in the River Rock Suite and we wished we could have stayed another day when we woke up this morning. The House was amazing and decks were amazing and the views and sounds from the River below were mesmerizing. We opened up our Window and could here the River... More

We wanted a quiet night away. So we did the typical search & find the best deal in the area, but after reading the many positive reviews helped me decide on River Dance. The multiple floors offer something for everyone. The VIEW from the decks are amazing!! Untouched nature for miles. The host Callie & David left no detail to... More

RiverDance sits atop a bluff overlooking the Laurel River, which sends its lovely soothing sounds up the cliff to your outdoor chair on an expansive wooden deck. This lodge beckons the urban traveler to come and rest; breathe in the clear mountain air, and drink in the lovely mountain views. Its cheerful hosts are very accommodating to your wishes. We...

My husband & I enjoyed every minute of our stay @ River Dance. The 350ft plunge from the back porch to the 'dancing' river below was indeed a highlight. We were also spoiled by the full moon light spilling into our bedroom as we drifted off to sleep to the sound of the river outside our open windows. The location... More

We chose this place over other places in Hot Springs because of the reviews; also because of the outstanding view of the mountains with the constant sounds of the creeks below, and its proximity to a couple of hiking destinations, mainly Max Patch. Callie and Dave treated us like honored guests but also like family, and made every effort to... More
