My fiance and I stayed at RiverDance from December 2nd to the 4th for a weekend getaway to celebrate my birthday. The surrounding landscape was beautiful and relaxing. Not only were the mountain views amazing, but the accommodations were above and beyond our expectations. When we arrived, Callie had some delicious snacks waiting for us. When we got to the downstairs suite, there were even some treats for our dog! We were so thrilled to be able to take him along with us for the weekend at no extra cost, unlike a lot of other places. The cost to rent the room per night is an amazing deal in comparison to the amount of space and available amenities. Breakfast was delicious, and it incorporated a lot of local influences. My fiance and I took advantage of shopping in downtown Marshall and even stopped at Sandy Bottom Trail Rides for some horseback riding. Both were not that far away from RiverDance. On our last day, we took some good advice from Callie and Dave and did some hiking with our dog along Laurel Creek to the French Broad River. It was a beautiful day for a hike, and we were lucky enough to stumble upon a buck in the woods. RiverDance is definitely a place to recommend to those who love the peace and quiet the mountains have to offer.
