Just stayed 3 nights and we are ages 60, 65 and 19 yr old daughter. We were surprised by the huge size of the bottom floor. As others have said if you want complete privacy you could, but Callie and Dave make you feel like old friends from the start and you will easily enjoy joining them for chats about how they came to the area. Callie has tons of brochures and will you depending on your interests. Daughter wanted to zipline and Callie suggested Navitat which was just the challenging experience she wanted while dragging a less than eager dad along. Hot Springs is 15 minutes away and an all day whitewater was fun for us all with Hot Springs Whitewater Co. Sandy Bottom horseback riding is also less than 30 min's away with over 500 acres. Last day we had to leave at 2:00am cause daughter became ill with complications of her neurological condition, and we were able to and in got her into Mission Hospital ER in Asheville in short time. Texted Callie about our leaving and she was going to drive in to hospital to see us but daughter was released shortly thereafter with meds and prompt care to rule out anything very serious. Callie let us know we could return to Riverdance if needed right away for an extra night but we were able to move on to our next reservation in Asheville to allow for rest. Missed touring Asheville but def want to return. All this to say, you feel worlds away from it all, but you are close to help if you need it. Callie and Dave make this the Excellent place it is. The beauty of the house is evident from photos, but it is the people that make it such a special place.
