My husband and I spent our second anniversary at River Dance. The view of the mountains is spectacular from two levels. What we liked best was the quiet privacy surrounded by the sounds of Big Laurel Creek and birds in flight. It wasn't hard to relax under these conditions! We recommend staying in the lower level with bedroom, bath, living room, and porch access to the hot tub. Our hosts were warm and attentive---we even were invited to dine with them and the other guests on our second night---a serendipitous treat. It was hard to leave the premises, but a trip into the town of Hot Springs is well worth it. Visit the welcome center, the library, and the hardware store for local color and fascinating historical insights. We even had time for a nice hike. Next time, we will try the spa in town, too. If you are ever in this section of North Carolina, River Dance is the place to stay!
