“A real delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

We stayed in the Chicken House on one night of our Carolina honeymoon roadtrip. Pauline could not have treated us better had we been members of her family. Very good fun room, amazing dinner and all set in a wonderful location. A real gem of an Inn.

My wife and I spent two nights in one of the mountain cottages managed by River House. (It was called River View, and it is not presently listed on the "check availability" page of their web site, so I don't know if it's any longer available.) It was beautifully situated on a hillside above the river, though you really have only a very slight gleam of the river in sight because of the woods on the riverbank. It was extremely commodious, beautifully appointed, with every convenience you might need. As for River House itself, which is about a half mile walk along the river from this cottage, it could not have been more enjoyable. Both our dinners there were superb, and the breakfasts, included in the price, were also delicious. The charming owner, Gayle Winston, who lives on the upper floor of the house and is very winningly present, could not have been more welcoming, and her staff clearly comes up to her high expectations. A beautiful part of my home state where I had never been, Ashe County definitely has its sophistications, but overall it seemed more rural and uncommercialized than the area around Asheville, to give just one example. We hope to return to the county and to River House in particular.
