RUSHING RIVER 3 STORY MOUNTAIN CABIN PARADISE ON 20 ACRES!

Ennice Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + 1000s/f Bunk Room, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

Rushing River 3 story Paradise on 20 acres -- Riverbend of Alleghany is an amazing place!

Riverbend is a custom-made, three-story, 2,800 square foot(approx), Log Cabin Home located on a secluded, privately owned, wooded 20 acres right on the Little River in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our 1,000 square foot bunk room with built in Swiss bunks, game room and french doors out to the river is amazing!

Some properties have a great view and some properties have a great house but THIS PROPERTY has both. Don't settle for an average living space just to get the view or sacrifice the view to get a great living space. Get both! The house is gorgeous and the river and property are stunning. When you compare us to other rentals, ask them 'How much land do you have?' Most of the other rentals in the area have a thin strip of land. We own the 20 acres Riverbend sits on and the adjoining 10 acres with another house. We have hundreds and hundreds of feet on the water! When you compare us, ask the other property 'are you right on the river?' The river is our front yard! You'll just love Riverbend!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so excited to open our first guest book this first day of February 2006! And we are even more thrilled to announce great additions to Riverbend! Last summer and fall, we were booked almost every single day. This winter, we added a 1,000 square foot Bunk Room with hand made built in bunks, entertainment center, game room [with ping pong] and a separate laundry room. Riverbend went from a great rental [we have mostly repeat customers] to a superior rental. Please call me personally if you have ANY questions. We know you will love this place!

A Time to Remember

  • 5 of 5
Our annual girl's weekend was once again "delightful, restful, and divine" at our beloved "Riverbend". Each visit has enabled us to draw closer to each other and to our Lord as we enjoy His beauty in this wonderful place. If the setting, surroundings and views were not enough... the owners continue to make improvements each time we come and it just gets better and better...My favorite things are the wood burning fireplace, gorgeous views of the river and woods, and the very comfy beds. Did I mention how very clean and well equipped it is too? Yes, I give it 5 stars!!! We have made many wonderful memories at Riverbend over the years. I highly recommend this charming and spacious cabin...it is a very special place that refreshes the soul and restores your peace. Experience it once and you will return. Until next time Riverbend....

Riverbend 11/14-11/21

We've stayed at Riverbend so many times now that I'm loosing count. We keep coming back for many reasons, among which are the location, the views and the amenities.

Having Sparta 15 minutes away is a huge convenience in such a rural area. It's a great place for a stroll, a little window shopping and to grab a bite to eat on a crisp autumn afternoon.

We had a nice picnic on the Parkway another afternoon. We spent an afternoon at Mount Rogers as well. It's wonderful to be at either place on a weekday when you can almost have the mountains to yourself.

We missed the height of the fall colors this time, but the views of the river from Riverbend really open up with the leaves gone. It's special to be able to take advantage of that view - and the sound - from almost any room in the house!

We always try to spend a few hours roaming the property in good weather. I've never been so close to a flock of wild turkeys before this visit. Apparently they live on the property or somewhere nearby because we saw them several times. Of course the deer and smaller wildlife were plentiful as usual.

We were also lucky enough to have several cold and rainy days. A rainy day inside of Riverbend is almost as good as a nice day tromping around outside. A good meal and a warm fire certainly take your mind off of the dampness outside. A special thank you to the owners for supplying the firewood!

This was the first time we have used the WiFi capabilites and found that easy and very convenient as well. It's nice to have it if you want - and to be able to shut it off if you don't!

Riverbend has always met our expectations as advertised. We have recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. We plan to visit again as soon as possible!

Girl's Weekend Retreat

This is the most FABULOUS cabin ever! Six of us girlfriends spent the weekend at Riverbend and had the time of our lives. The kitchen was wonderful and very well equipped. We cooked homemade "zuppa Tuscana" and barbequed Asian steak on the huge gas grill! Fireplace was AWESOME as was the fire pit beside the New River. Ample wood supply already cut and stacked!!! Bathrooms are beautiful and we loved the jacuzzi tub! Everything, from furniture to appliances to decor is impecable! The owners have lovingly made this into a home, not just some rental. I'm sure many great memories have been made here! I'll definitely be back, next time with my hubby and three sons!

A wonderful peek among in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to get away from it all in the North Carolina mountains. If you want to get away to rest, read and recline this place has it. If you want to take a crew and play you will find plenty of toys for all to be entertained. If you like to play in the great outdoors there are several attractions nearby.

My wife and I have gone alone, we have taken our children, and we have gone with other friends and family, and every time we have had a blast. We always look forward to being there and enjoying the company of others and the surroundings.

The river is wonderful. You can see and hear it from the house. There is a great place down by the river to sit around a campfire and talk, roast marshmellows or hot dogs.

You will just have to go there to see it for yourself. I am very confident you will come away reluctantly, and return frequently.

Spectacular Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at Riverbend with our family (husband/wife and three young children), and hated to leave! The cabin is incredible with every amenity possible, to include ping pong, board games, a great DVD selection, and an extensive kitchenware selection. You could never step foot outside of the great front porch and your vacation would be a blast.

However, you would miss out on the rushing river, the gorgeous mountains, the wildlife, and all the other fun stuff the area has to offer. We spent hours tubing, fishing, and just playing the river, which is just about right outside your front door. The kids loved catching crayfish and the other interesting water creatures that abound.

I would recommend taking a long drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and exploring a quiet side of life that is rare these days. From a trip to Grandfather Mountain to going to the Farmer's Market in Galax, VA on Saturday morning, the area has it all (except crowds, annoying traffic, and high priced junk souvenirs)!

Other "must do's" include catfish and trout fishing in the stocked ponds in Sparta, a trip to Mt. Airy to see the original Mayberry town (don't miss the world-famous pork chop sandwiches at Snappy Lunch), gem mining in Little Switzerland, and the great but strenuous waterfall path hike at Stone Mountain Park. We also enjoyed the Foggy Ridge Cider orchard and "factory" in Dugspur, VA where they make and bottle the best hard apple cider I have ever had, making s'mores at the great campfire site next to the river, and just reading in the two hammocks next to the river.

This vacation allowed our family to reconnect, enjoy nature, and to see a side of life as it existed years ago in term of small town living. While it was a rustic area, the cabin is first-class all the way, and allows you to step inside from the forest to extreme luxury.

We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners, and they are great people who I think really want to make sure you are well taken care of and that you enjoy your stay as their guest. Simply put, you can't go wrong with Riverbend!

We had a three generation family vacation (ages 8-72) at Riverbend in June, and everyone had a wonderful time. My brother had researched hundreds or rentals, emailing me and my sister each time, but none could compare to Riverbend. And the reality did not disappoint! I don't know what got more use, the rocking chairs, the hammocks, the ping pong table, or the fire pit by the river... we enjoyed them all! My personal favorite was sleeping with the windows open and hearing the river. And then there were the lightening bugs! It got dark around 9 p.m., and they entertained us each night.

The location is great - secluded, yet close enough for some fun day trips, if you so desire. We enjoyed Mt. Airy and Blowing Rock, as well as drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

On the practical side, it is about a 12 hr drive from South Florida, but definitely worth it. If you go into Sparta for groceries, Lowes is the place to shop (and yes, it is for food, not the home improvement store!). We had a delicious and inexpensive lunch at The Pines Restaurant in Sparta.

One caveat, it is a bit of a hike down to the River, about 40 steps I think. If you are traveling with an elderly person, or someone with mobility issues, you would want to be aware of this.

All in all, I can't say enough nice things about Riverbend. We plan to go back, hopefully at a time cold enough to enjoy the fireplace. If your family loves nature and relaxation, while still being entertained, this is the place for you. If you need nonstop action, theme parks, putt putt golf, go carts, etc, you better look elsewhere!
