My husband and I happened up on these sweet little cabins located on the Nottely River. The owner was very accommodating. The cabin was very clean. Very reasonably priced! Beautiful location and view! Sweet cat named dog. We would love to stay here again.

Ok so website says no refunds due to weather- understandable. Had sent in HALF of amount due. Hurricane weather including flash floods redirected us away from NC and toward Arkansas. Owner would not offer partial credit toward another visit . As a returning customer I did expect that . So they lose us as an annual returning customer. No worries-... More

Perfect location if touring area. Motorcycle friendly folks. Close to Moonshiner 28, Tail of Dragon, Cherohala skyway, Cherokee etc etc. Clean no frills cabins. Very homey and rustic. Owner lady was very nice, her husband not too social. Def will go back! Great price and perfect location.

I absolutely love this place! I stayed in cabin #4. It's right next to the river. Each cabin is different, so choose depending on your needs. Very relaxing and peaceful. They have a campfire every night, if you feel like socializing. There is a small pier if you want to fish. There is wifi, but it's a little spotty. With... More

We just showed up and were lucky enough to get a beautiful cabin for three days. It sat right on the river and proved to be the final touch to a great vacation. It was quiet and just plain nice! I actually caught a nice trout, a Bass, and a hard fighting catfish from right outside our cabin. The cabin... More

We had a very relaxing time at the River Cove Cabins. It was the type of place we always look for. We're not into fancy, just nice clean, out of the main stream places. Although it rained a lot, it was still one of our best vacations. Gary and Wanda very nice people. The dog and cat were great too.... More
