We had seen the many wonderful reviews of Riverdance and were excited to be staying there during our getaway to Western NC. Our hosts Dave, Callie, and Midge(the dog) made us feel right at home and were warm and inviting.
Riverdance is part B&B part vacation rental with guests having access to the full kitchen and an entire floor of this multi level timber frame house. The views from there are amazing and we sat in the hot tub and watched the wisps of clouds drift in and out of the hills that surround the property.
Callie puts on a very nice breakfast spread with locally sourced goodies or homemade baked goods from her own oven. And both she and Dave are happy to sit and chat about all manner of subjects making our stay there more like visiting friends and much less like being paying clients.
The house itself is an amazing example of mortise and tendon construction with no sign of any ironwork used in raising the frame. The detailed touches of furnishing and construction show the thought and care the owners put into this home which they so graciouslylopen to others at a VERY reasonable price.
Riverdance is a great location to base your adventures in Western NC from any time of the year and we look forward to the next time we can spend a few days there.
