We were in town for a family wedding. This was a wonderful place to stay. Close to everything in Asheville but secluded enough to be very private - our own oasis! The property was gorgeous and very well kept. We had immediate access to the river where my son fly fished. My grandson found his first frog and that was...

We were two couples coming for a relaxing new year's trip and the Riverview Retreat cabin (not the humble fish camp) was great for our purposes. The owners clearly take pride in the cabin and add wonderful touches that you would never expect but will appreciate in a rental. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were fantastic with plenty of room. It's...

The Americana Cabin is a perfect blend of rustic and comfort! There are enough ammenities to make it cozy and comfortable in bad weather, but in good weather you can enjoy the hammock, cook on the campfire, and fall asleep to the sound of the river. Our dog loved exploring the island and if the water had been a bit...

Where do I start? Being originally from The Ozarks, but now living in Boston - I've been missing the woods. Three of us converged on the Asheville area from different parts of the country and stayed at Riverside Escapes Americana Cabin. This was the best 6 nights I've had in a long time. The host, Liz is a peach (and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If your idea of “getting away” is fly-fishing, camping, kayaking, or just sipping lemonade on the deck, Riverside Escapes has a place for you… Choose the cozy, private island fishing cottage or the new mainland log cabin for a vacation you won’t forget. Both are located directly on Section 8 of the French Broad River, just a ten minute drive from Weaverville and a scenic twenty minute drive from the center of downtown Asheville. ... more   less
