“Our Default Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I love trying new places and yet I am content to return again and again to RiverDance. The architecture of the house is open and welcoming- and really sets the stage for the view. I absolutely love the jacuzzi - even in the barely cool August evenings it is such a luxury. My husband and I found that RiverDance gave us the space to have private conversations or time to lounge on the deck and read. We also enjoyed talking to Callie and Dave and breakfast! The trip into Asheville or surrounding areas wasn't so long that it was a hassle- but not too close so that we felt tempted to spend the whole time going and seeing. In fact, the first time we went to visit Asheville and stay at a nice place. The second time was mostly just to visit RiverDance - it is an experience unto itself.

Room Tip: The River Rock room options are more private and a great ground option for dogs!

My husband and I have decided we will never find another place so perfect as RiverDance! The accommodations, hospitality of Callie and Dave, and the beauty of the location were outstanding. We have stayed in B&Bs in this county and in Europe, but none has come close to the experience we enjoyed at RiverDance. We will return!

My wife and I stayed at River Dance B&B in June of 2014. What a beautiful location! So relaxing! Just what we needed after having our original flight canceled and having to rebook to a different city and driving 2 more hours than expected. We were met by Kayla who was standing in for Callie who was on holiday with her husband. We stayed in the Tree Tops suite which was magnificent! The view was down into a valley with creek that you could hear just enough to be very relaxing…all the time. One of our favorite past-times was doing super in the evening on the deck just off the common area. Quiet and peaceful except for the sound of the creek and the birds…very nice. We definitely give River Dance “2 Thumbs Up”!!!...George & Nancy

We really enjoyed our visit to Riverdance. The scenery is beautiful and the accommodations are comfortable. Callie and Dave were wonderful hosts. They are also very convenient to many white water rafting places. We enjoyed are get away.

In the past year I have visited Riverdance many times. There is a magical feel there, and Callie and Dave are amazing hosts. it feels like being at home, and even better. Once my husband and I stayed to celebrate my birthday and had an amazing time. The accomodations are comfortable. The surroundings peaceful.

I loved it so much that I decided to do a retreat there and have my clients come. It was the perfect spot for that. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and felt right at home. It was an amazing atmosphere for transformation. What's better than an amazing comfortable mountain home and view combined with gracious hosts?

I recommend RiverDance to everyone I can. Truly, you will be glad you went. It has a magic all its own.

Thanks so much for providing us an amazing home away from home in the mountains. We love it.

I have been able to stay at RiverDance on several occasions and each time it gets better. Having known Dave and Callie, the owners, for several years it always is nice to stay there when I am in North Carolina. The food they make available for guests is fit for royalty. I am proud to say that there is no place like RiverDance, that can make you feel at home. The scenery off the back deck is worth the trip up the mountain. The comforts RiverDance provides are beyond any 5 star hotel I have had the privilege to stay in during my travels. The beauty of having Dave and Callie right there is that they make opportunities for some great conversations. They are better than family because they always make you feel welcome.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms have a great view.
