When we stumbled across this listing while we were planning our Valentine's Getaway, we felt like we'd found something great.

But once we got there, we were completely blown away by the beauty of the scenery and of the home as well.

Callie and Dave were the perfect hosts! They were caring enough to provide breakfast and give us advice as to which trails had the best views, as well as which areas had the most potential for exploring. Not to mention, they stayed in contact with us the entire time before arriving, making us feel welcomed.

We'd highly recommend staying in the downstairs, as you have some privacy, but still feel connected.

All this is available for an affordable price, making this the ideal weekend getaway.

Plus, there is a hot tub with an incredible view of the mountains and the stars.

My wife and I took our anniversary trip to Hot Springs, as we were newlyweds and couldn't afford to spend a lot of money on our trip. We found RiverDance through a friend's suggestion (they had stayed there before) and it was wonderful! Callie and Dave were responsive to emails and phone calls before we got there, and once we arrived were exceptional hosts. It was clear their goal was to make us feel comfortable, and we did! I even have special dietary restrictions and Callie made sure I had what I needed for breakfast. The hot tub was wonderful, and the view from our room was breathtaking and wild.

We made our reservation on the spur of the moment, the day before our trip. Arrived just after a snow and ice storm to be coxed up the mountain by Callie via cell phone as to how to negotiate the roads. Greeted by Callie and Midge, we were helped with our bags and treated to the view of the mountains and river below like none other we have seen. The accommodations with 2 bed rooms, lovely bathroom and sitting room was cozy and warm with all the amenities of coffee, fridge and microwave and the warmth of home. RiverDance is a beautiful example of timber frame construction finished with the special touches of Dave a Callie. We stood on the deck to soak in the incredible views where we later shared wine and watched the sunset against the mountains in the distance. When all was dark, a glow over the mountains preceded the rise of a full moon reflecting on the running river 300 feet below. The moonlight rippled on the water, hence the name "RiverDance" we are sure. Beautiful. A sensory experience complete with sound of the running stream below us. Our trip was a spur of the moment spontaneous decision which is now etched as a memory and a visual of a place we are sure to return in the summer with a longer stay. A romantic and beautiful place to share on Valentines.

Room Tip: You will love the top level with views spectacular. Rooms are spacious and nicely furnished with you...

Callie and Dave were so welcoming to us! We felt at ease and well taken care of when we were there. We loved the scenic views from any where in the house and on the balconies. It was so peaceful and refreshing to stay at Riverdance, it definitely has a retreat feel to it. Callie and Dave were also great about giving advice about what to see nature-wise around Hot Springs. Definitely ask them to give you some direction! We were there in October and the colors and weather were amazing!! We want to return to RiverDance one day soon, and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Don't know what else I can say about this place except that it was amazing. All the other reviewers are on point. If you go during the winter, make sure to sit in the hot tub at night and look at the snow and the starry sky.

Not only was the location breathtaking the house itself was very homey. Dave and Callie are wonderful and they go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I felt as if I was at my own house just this time with a better view! Unlike a cold, sleek, and lonely hotel, this bed and breakfast was warm, cozy, and welcoming and I cannot emphasize this enough! Dave and Callie really are amazing people and you will love your stay here! I highly recommend staying here.
