River House Country Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Grassy Creek B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 24, 2013

My husband and I spent a couple nights here last month and by the time we left we were planning our next visit. The place is definitely off the beaten path - sits on the New River and we were able to attend the New River Blues Festival which was held on the property of River House right by the water. The Inn is so charming and each room is uniquely adorned - nothing fancy but so quaint and relaxing. No TV - but a nice big bathtub with candles! There is an artist who creates pottery and his gallery is part of the inn - we bought several pieces to bring home for us and as gifts for family. The restaurant is AMAZING! Excellent food and service. Very intimate. Full bar at the inn and full breakfast in the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 but I think the best rooms are the Carriage House and the one that used to be a...

Yes... in the middle of nowhere... quietly on the edge of the 'New River'.... Accommodations are comfortable and peaceful... and some are creative. In a county where it is hard to even get a glass of wine.. River House is an Oasis! 4-Star food as well.... The owner is as charming as the Inn... and she is there most all the time....
Worth the trip... looking forward to going back.

Room Tip: just pick one you like.... they are all different.

Once again the River House has been amazing! We always love to stay here, it's the most relaxing and scenic spot! Miss Gail is the sweetest host, she makes you feel like your family coming to stay the weekend. The cottages are simple but very comfortable and the food is always outstanding! Always look forward to going back!!!!!

The accommodations were exactly as described. The food was out of this world. The people who worked at the inn treated us as if we were their most favorite guests. The vibe is incredible! This inn keeper knows what she is doing!

It was all we hoped it would be. We so enjoyed the quaint and lovely accomodations, the friendly staff, the excellent food and exploring the beautiful mountains. The owner of the cabin is knowledgeable and so pleasant.

Room Tip: The Wee Cabin is delightful if you don't mind a short hike down to breakfast

We stayed at River House for our anniversary along with our two four-legged travel companions from Sunday-Wednesday. It is much quieter at that time and we got lots of Gayle's attention! Such a gracious host. We stayed in the Milk Parlor, which had plenty of room for us all. It really means a lot to us to be able to bring our dogs along ... and they love the place as much as we do. Just remember, dinner isn't served on Monday and Tuesday, but West Jefferson has some good restaurants to try. Breakfast that is served each morning is wonderful. We took a canoe trip right from the River House (they have canoes, kayaks and tubes) ... beautiful scenery all along the way. There is plenty of hiking nearby. Most of all, though, it is great just to hang out at River House and enjoy the laid back experience. Gayle makes you feel like family.

From the moment we arrived we were pampered and taken care of. The rooms all have their own ambiance and story. When we walked into ours there was a hot tub in the room complete with candles and towels hung conveniently to the side. My only suggestion, have a radio or cd player in the rooms.The coffee at your door at 8 am is a really nice touch and allows you to come into the day gently. The dinner concert was fantastic in both the quality of the music and the dinner. The beauty of the grounds enhanced the experience and you were encouraged to explore. Thank you for all you did and how wonderful you made us feel.

Room Tip: Each room is different from one another and you need to look at the descriptions carefully.
