RiverDance sits atop a bluff overlooking the Laurel River, which sends its lovely soothing sounds up the cliff to your outdoor chair on an expansive wooden deck. This lodge beckons the urban traveler to come and rest; breathe in the clear mountain air, and drink in the lovely mountain views. Its cheerful hosts are very accommodating to your wishes. We elected to do things "family style" so we shared meals together with them, both indoors in the cathedral-ceiling great room and outdoors on the deck. You must book at least two nights here or you will feel cheated; the location is extraordinary and the hospitality warm and inviting.
