Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Jeff & Family

Your home felt like a "home" and not a rental. Thank you for allowing us to make our mountain memories here. There is a love of a family in this home and we could feel it throughout our stay here. Hope we can return again during the summer.

Best,

Sherrie"

Siblings weekend

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfectly prepared for our arrival. The kitchen was one the best appointed of any that we have stayed in. The outdoor kitchen was great to have. We spent a lot of time by the fire pit, my only suggestion would be to add a few more chairs. The house is very convenient to grocery store, shopping and downtown Blowing Rock. It was fun to be able to hear Tweetsie's train whistle. The main living area had plenty of seating and was very spacious. The owner even called while we were there to make sure everything was OK. We did not have cell phone service so you will need to give the house phone # to anyone who might need to contact you

In spite of the rain, our family enjoyed the surrounding beauty this property has to offer. We had looked forward to spending time around the firepit. Maybe next time! The hot tub provided lots of fun for all, and we spent time watching the Royals play the Orioles in the great room while grilling burgers. Our daughters enjoyed playing in the creek. The owners are very gracious and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful Fall Break!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your response. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the property and were able to enjoy quality time with your family "in" the house. It is pleasant to have an indoor fire and watch a little TV, especially a good baseball game during rainy weather. Thank you for taking such great care of the house and you are certainly welcome back any time.

Jeff

My family of 10 plus one pet had a wonderful week at Rivers Edge. A beautiful quite and restful setting located on a rustling mountain stream. The house did not lack for anything and was easily accessible through mountain twist and turns. (Everything will be even better when U.S. 321 is completed.) Tweetsie, Boone Golf Club, Boone and Blowing Rock resturants, fishing, hiking, shopping, and hanging out on rivers edge, were highlights of the week. The owner was most helpful and considerate, I would highly recommend the property.

Wonderful getaway home!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely property, and it provided just the setting we were looking for during our family vacation. The home is beautifully appointed with attractive mountain décor and numerous amenities for guests. Our eight and ten year old spent time each day catching crawdads in the backyard creek while mom and dad read books on the shady deck. We also enjoyed the hot tub after hikes and S'mores around the fire pit several times. My husband's parents loved the space and privacy of the luxurious master suite.
During our week's stay, we hiked the Flat Top Tower trail near Cone Manor, Rich Mountain, Trout Lake, and Bass Lake. We went kayaking and tubing on the Watauga River on a beautiful day. We shopped and dined in Blowing Rock and enjoyed wonderful meals at The Gamekeeper and the Inn at Little Pond Farm in Valle Crucis. We took our children to play golf and also to Tweetsie Railroad while adults played more golf. We found River's Edge to be conveniently located to everything we wanted to do - it was maybe a ten-minute drive to 321 and then easy to get anywhere else from there. Best of all, it was a beautiful and peaceful home to return to after a busy day!
The owner could not have been easier or more enjoyable to work with. He was quick to respond to every question/request on our part and seemed to genuinely care about our satisfaction with the home and our vacation overall. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you, Jeff!

Fun for family

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (with two pre-teens) spent several spring days here with wonderful exploring, relaxing, grilling, and movie/game time. Beautiful wooded area with soothing stream - we could see the trees and wildflowers open up during our stay as the weather warmed. The decor was really fun and fascinating, totally different, but very inviting and comfortable. Stream exploring, Video games, fire pit and hot tub were kid favorites. Owner is kind and responsive. The short trip to town was very scenic. We hope to return soon.
