“Wonderful Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We stayed here 2 nights on our way back to SC from MI. After the hectic holidays my husband and I were looking forward to a restful retreat. This place is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in the Angel's Rest room which was perfectly situated in the southeast corner of the B&B, with a fabulous view. The room was spotless, comfortable and beautifully appointed. Our host, Jimm has hospitality down to a science and our hostess-chef, Janet has culinary skills to rival any top restaurant. For dinner Jimm suggested the Palisades Restaurant nearby. The food was so good we went back again the next night too. We also hiked to Cascade Falls which was beautiful to see since it was partially frozen. My husband and I hope to make this our annual stop each year after Christmas when traveling back from our home in MI to our winter home in SC.

In the midst of a challenging year, spending a delayed anniversary / get away weekend at the Inn at Riverbend was a perfect oasis! Our room was meticulously clean and comfortable with a GORGEOUS view; our breakfasts were delicious. We are so appreciative of the special attention given to our dietary needs. Janet and Jim are warm and welcoming hosts--clearly focused on making our visit special. Honestly, I selfishly do not want the word to get out too much but Jim and Janet deserve to be as busy as they want to be! We will definitely return--Rachael & Bassam

We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary weekend at Inn at Riverbend. Jimm and Janet were great hosts. Breakfast was wonderful and we very much enjoyed simply spending time in the room enjoying the view--it was really too cool to enjoy the balcony/desks. Now we have an excuse to travel again simply to visit in another, warmer season. Many thanks!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level may be a bit quieter.

We loved having you celebrate your anniversary weekend with us. While it can be downright cold at times in the winter, the view of snow-capped mountains and steam rising from the New River can be awe inspiring! Just dream of the leave coming out in the spring - 40,000 shades of green - OK - I don't really know if there are 40,000 shades, but there are a lot!!

My husband and I just returned from an absolutely wonderful getaway here. Beyond the view outside, the home is beautifully decorated and comfortable in the best way. JT and I felt as if we were walking around our own home, rather than stay in a strange location. Both Janet and Jimm have hospitality down to a science (which makes sense as they both were scientists in their past lives). In addition to the details that made all of the difference (e.g., e-mailing to let us know we could cancel our stay without penalty due to weather concerns, leaving a note with all the information we'd need, remembering that my husband roasts coffee), they have an unbeatable view and charming location. Finally, Jimm and Janet seem to be able to adjust to the needs of their guests -- possibly because they sensed JT and my introversion, they gave us plenty of time and space to re-charge, while making sure we were aware that they were available if we needed anything at all. I was kicking myself that I had forgotten to bring cash to tip, because the stay was, without a doubt, world-class. I'm sure we'll return in the future!

My wife and I discovered this lovely spot on the edge of the Blue Ridge mountains and found it to be a wonderful escape from our normal pace. The setting is beautiful, the hospitality is warm and inviting, the breakfast is delicious, the environment is relaxing, and leaving is difficult. What more can you ask for?

Room Tip: Two levels: the lower level is nice since the porch is covered.

The Inn was peaceful, and the view was lovely. Jim
and Janet were the perfect hosts: solicitous yet unobtrusive. We stayed in Little Stony which overlooked the New River. I have had the good fortune to visit many Select Properties over the years, but this was hands down my favorite. Dinner at the Palisades Restaurant was the perfect complement made it all the more special. We definitely will be back.

We arrived in the late evening just in time to see the sunset. Sweet Janet was there to greet us, give us a tour of the grounds and show us to our room. She was very knowledgeable of the surrounding area and offered suggestions for dinner. The grounds and view are beautiful, the house is very comfy. We stayed in Cascade Falls, it's downstairs down a small hallway and felt very secluded from the rest of the house. The hospitality and the actual establishment were incredible! Add the view and the absolutely delicious breakfast and there is no question we will be back. Go! You won't regret it!
